Marcel Breuer and Walter Gropius’s 1940s Chamberlain Cottage is back on the market just six months after selling.
Nestled into the Massachusetts countryside, the three-bedroom property – listed for $2.3m with Gibson Sotheby’s – was one of the first buildings designed by Breuer in the US, and one of his last architectural collaborations with Bauhaus founder Gropius.
After falling into disrepair in 1995, Chamberlain Cottage was purchased by a pair of local architects who extended the property, adding a new level, a modern kitchen, and refurbishing the interiors.
Inside the cottage wood and copper-covered walls and huge windows frame the surrounding views of the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. Other features include concrete and cork floors, and an indoor pond that comes ready-stocked with koi carp.
The house has been no stranger to the market this year, already exchanging hands in February 2016 for the significantly lower price tag of $1.25m.
