Earlier this month, the $2,450,000 listing for 245 Grove Street, near the Fresh Pond Reservoir in Cambridge, dropped. You remember 245 Grove—so angular and out there it "frightened" the neighbors. Well, up the street, another modernist house has hit the market for a similarly robust price tag: 255 Grove Street is asking $2,395,000. Like 245 Grove, it's all sharp angles from the outside and sunny open spaces inside. Though it may appear a tad sterile (even stuck-up, given its devotion to energy-efficiency), the listing does assure us that "this home also has soul." Cool.
