20 Lawrence St
Tucked away on a tranquil side street yet just steps to the centers of the Back Bay, South End, & Bay Village, this unique single family 1st built at the turn of the century as a modest brick rowhouse has been reborn as a mid-century inspired modern home with 4 levels of living, a private garden, & a private roofdeck. Designed by architect Christopher Robinson now of Portland, OR based SunSwallow Design, the open-concept interior is centered around a beautifully engineered steel-framed stair that spans through the levels & is topped by a large pyramid-shaped skylight to bring in natural light from the roof. Simple, elegant style pervades each room. The main elements are natural oak hardwood, black steel, glass, & stone. Look outside to find green in view on all sides with trees surrounding the home. All high end appliances, fittings & fixtures, 2 zone heat/AC, gas FP, wiring for sound, & unassumingly ample storage via custom built-ins everywhere, including a murphy bed in the library.
