Ever dreamed of living in a house that was featured on the cover of Dwell Magazine? This 1,500 sq.ft. renovated cottage in Cambridge near the Alewife T graced the cover back in 2005 and is now for sale. Designed and constructed by UNI, the cottage features corrugated Cor-ten steel siding and translucent polycarbonate paneling...
The cottage is part of a larger compound, also developed by UNI, so your neighbors would be living in the adjoining Black Box and next door in the Stacked Box Home. We love the home's elegant blend of vernacular forms and modern materials as well as the unassuming front entrance. The interior feels Japanese with its sparseness and elegant details, such as the open grill circulating heat through the floors of the house.
The home is for sale for $539,000 and we'd take it at that price vs a one bedroom apartment in a new luxury high-rise any day. We'll have to see if they are having an open houses because we'd love to see it in person. See the tour on Boston.com's Home of the Week via The Boston Globe.
