One of the main reasons I came back to Boston this year. I had heard about this historic house from a docent. It is exactly as the architect's wife left it. I like modern simple, midcentury energy efficiency but visited with friends who prefer traditional...More

Just about a thirty minute drive from the Harvard area, this home built in 1936 by a founder of the Bauhaus movement in Germany is maintained beautifully with much of the interior as it appeared during Walter Gropious' lifetime and with mostly original furnishings. If...More

Enjoyed the guided tour very much. The house and the history behind it was interesting. Learned more about Walter Gropius and his life. The grounds around the estate were beautiful and it was interesting to see other houses of the same design dotted about.

This house was built in 1938. It took in account ways to save energy at that time. Very nice visit inside with strict phone rules. Small groups preferable. The land is open to public and encouraged for picnics or outside visits for free. Here are...More

Glad I made the effort to find this hidden gem of a house built in 1938 and still relevant for today. As as architect it was a treat and even for my host, a local and not into modern architecture, it was an unexpected surprise....More

We visited this house over the recent holiday weekend. There is parking by the ticket office/gift shop (in the former garage) and also up by the house. The house tour was wonderful, led by a very knowledgeable gentleman (Robert?) who was a great guide, very...More

The Gropius House is a very unusual place. You should definitely visit it if you have any interest in the Bauhaus style of architecture, or if you just want to see an example of something not at all common in this area. I can't say...More
