Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Belmont, Massachusetts

By RetroRuth

This week we have a great house that was sent to us by reader Susan. Thank you, Susan!


This home is located at 55 Juniper Road, Belmont, Massachusetts. It has four bedrooms and four bathrooms and is about 2000 square feet. It was built in 1957 and the asking price is $1,525,000. It is listed by Coldwell Banker, and you can see the listing here. From the listing:

Tranquil grounds enfold this nine room contemporary nestled atop Belmont Hill on 0.48 acres. This residence boasts light filled architecture throughout enhanced by nature’s palette. Featuring a spacious living room with fireplace and built-ins, walls of windows compliment the sundrenched dining room allowing access to lush grounds. Offering a chef’s kitchen, four generous bedrooms including an en-suite master and four full baths. Additional features include an expansive and bright lower level replete with family room, bedroom, full bath and cabinetry. A two car garage with direct access, central air, proximity to the Habitat, conservation land, walking trails, Belmont Center, public transportation and major routes enhance this home.

Solid construction with top quality materials, workmanship, and finishes make this mid-century modern, designed in 1957 by architect Bob Hamilton, a standout. Major systems updated; impeccably landscaped grounds have been lovingly maintained. Close to Mass. Audubon Habitat and other permanently preserved open space.

    What a stunner. Love that glass screen and the pink bath. Overall, a leeetle too much wood for my taste. I’m guessing the panels above and next to some of the windows conceal screened openings for fresh air

    This house seems to have all its original features virtually untouched- the few minor updates I can spot in the pics appear to have been carefully done to not spoil the clean simplicity of the design. I love those ventilation panels- what a great way to keep the expanses of glass free of everything that could obstruct the view!

    Who said “open concept” was a new trend?! The use of lighter woods in the kitchen gives it an airy feeling, and the bathrooms are immaculate just the way they are. Previous occupants apparently loved this home.
