Lexington Home of the Week: 26 Barberry Road
This contemporary and innovative property provides an enlightened presence with its creative open design and brilliant exposures.
This delightful contemporary, originally designed by The Architects Collaborative (TAC), is fittingly located in the highly desirable mid-century modern community of Five Fields. The home has been expanded, updated and enhanced throughout the years, but its owners have been committed to its progressive designs and have preserved its fluid and open floor plan both within its walls and throughout its over half acre grounds.
What is immediately apparent when potential homebuyers approach this home is its abundance of windows, traditional, decorative and oversized. This appreciation of natural sunlight is a significant contributing factor to its interior ambiance where organics and sinuous fabrication come together to create an exposed graceful blueprint. The first level takes full advantage of its resourceful construction with rooms enhanced with elevated ceilings and natural fibers. The 23 x 23 square foot living/dining room is presented with a cathedral ceiling with exposed wood beams, a fireplace and a slider that leads to a deck that overlooks the lush, private, fenced-in landscape. The 11 x 22 eat-in kitchen further reflects that sleek design with crisp white cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Two additional common rooms on this level include a 19 x 10 square foot office and a 24 x 14 square foot library.
The 13 x 18 square foot master suite is also located on this level for convenient single-floor living as well as an 11 x 13 square foot bedroom, a full bath and a versatile 12 x 7 square foot loft which would make an ideal music room, library, artist's studio or home office. Two additional bedrooms at 11 x 12 and 17 x 8 square feet are located on the lower level with a full bath and a 13 x 15 square foot family room.
The flexibility of this innovative floor plan offers residents such a variety of uses that can accommodate many individual preferences and needs. With the imagination and originality that went into its original construction and various renovations, the next owners of this magnificent property will benefit greatly with a home that is unparalleled to anything on the Lexington real estate market.
