Description Change this

This house in Lincoln, Massachusetts, designed by Marcel Breuer and Walter Gropius for the Breuer family.

The site that is level in front and slopes down in the back. The house is wood frame, with steel sash casement windows and vertical tongue-and-groove redwood exterior siding, without gutters or conductors. A stone-floored entry leads to a two-story, south-facing living room. From there, stairs lead down to the dining room and up to the bedrooms. The interior walls and ceilings are plywood panels and 1/4 sawed fir. A stone-floored, screened-in porch faces west.
