Birchwood Terrace

Birchwood Terrace

Brookline, MA

This new home was inspired by the owners’ California roots and time spent living in France, resulting in a beautiful blend of modern aesthetics and sophisticated, rustic charm. Nestled on a private Brookline lot, the home was designed around two bookend courtyards, the garage and parking court on the North, and the bocce court/lawn, patio and indoor pool to the South. 

The indoor pool was a unique design challenge, the full-height glass sliding door required complicated engineering, as well as the vegetated roof with integrated skylights and solar panels.

Inside, the home nestles three bedrooms on the second floor, along with the master suite, his and hers offices, and second “hidden” patio. The first floor hosts the mudroom, kitchen, living room, dining, homework/playroom, and music room. Finishes and materials are contemporary, yet rich in detail. Rooms throughout the home are situated to showcase the views to the surrounding landscape.
