The Boston region is no stranger to fast sales for its big-time properties. Latest case in point? The Bauhaus Contemporary at 21 Cedar Road in the Brookline slice of Chestnut Hill. The 6,958-square-foot 7-BR, 7.5-BA(!) went on the market through Hammond Residential on May 10 and is already in contract. The asking price was $5,500,000.
The bones of the house date from the early 1960s, when the late Hugh Stubbins designed it. Stubbins would go on to teach architecture at Harvard and to craft such creations as Boston's Federal Reserve Bank Building, New York's Citigroup Center, and Ronald Reagan's presidential library. While 21 Cedar does date from 50-plus years ago, it was "renovated to the studs" earlier this year, according to Hammond, following a $2.25M trade in September 2014.
Stay tuned for the closing.
