Why we have a crush on this property

Midcentury modern-style homes possess a special kind of magic. Maybe it’s their sloping roofs or gigantic windows, but there’s no denying they captivate whoever enters them. 

That’s certainly the case for this ’70s deck house with midcentury flair for sale in Massachusetts. Tucked away on the Bay State’s North Shore, the home revels in warm woods and clean lines—and overlooks the aptly named Pleasant Pond.

Indeed, the spacious five-bedroom abode has direct water access and a dock. When its new owners aren’t kayaking or canoeing, they can be enjoying the firepit down by the water, or the travertine patio closer to the house, sipping cider and watching clouds float over the pond.

Inside, there’s more beauty to behold. A wood-burning fireplace, groovy light fixtures, and exposed beams grace the main living area, while in the kitchen, shiny new appliances and a stylish backsplash make it feel like a picture-perfect place to entertain. 

The house has lots of cozy sitting areas to choose from, from the glass-paneled sunroom to the expansive deck. Retro charm has been preserved in each of the bedrooms, too, while the bathrooms have been updated with modern fixtures and finishes. To top it all off, the sellers have agreed to repurpose a detached shed on the property into an office or play space.

This rare deck house—with a front carport, to boot—is listed by Tracey Hutchinson with Churchill Properties for $975,000.
