45 Fayerweather Street.
Cambridge, MA


The “Garrett Birkhoff House”, a significant example of “International Style” architecture was designed in 1940 by Walter Bogner, a colleague of Walter Gropius. This unique brick residence offers a thoughtfully designed floor plan and well proportioned spaces, equally suitable for entertaining as well as family living. 45 Fayerweather Street makes a convincing case that good design is timeless. The property has had only two owners since 1940, and has been lovingly maintained. 

The main house has an expansive living room with a wood burning fireplace and walls of glass overlooking the very private, exquisitely landscaped gardens. The dining room also shares wonderful views of the gardens and a pass-through to the eat-in kitchen.  There are 4 bedrooms, a study and 3 full baths; including a large master suite with windows overlooking the gardens, an en-suite bath and French doors leading to an inviting deck. The property includes a charming guest cottage ideal for a home office, studio or au-pair/guest suite. 

Sought after West Cambridge location; perfectly sited on a spacious 18,000+ sf landscaped lot providing ultimate privacy.
