MID CENTURY HOUSE TOURS - Lextopia!

I was able to spend a beautiful fall morning touring several houses in the Moon Hill, and Peacock Farm neighborhoods in Lexington Massachusetts. A rare "house tour day" was arranged by the Lexington Historical Society to conclude their "Lextopia!" exhibit. What a treat to tour private homes of rightfully "house proud" home owners of these mid century gems. My favorite house had the original kitchen cabinets. My favorite room was a master bedroom addition with floor to ceiling windows, and a closet/corridor running behind the bed.  The reasonable scale of the houses, setting in the hilly plots, and the inside>outside connection with large windows and access to decks was impressive.  Pictures were not allowed inside the homes, so I snapped one of a beautifully landscaped backyard.  Great vibe overall -no fences allowed in these neighborhoods, and the home owners and fellow participants were beaming with excitement to be able to tour these homes.
