Winchester Home of the Week: 46 Lorena Road

Tech Home on market by renowned architect Carl Koch.


This unique property is a rare opportunity to purchase and live in a home designed by renowned American architect Carl Koch. Koch was considered a pioneer in the area of prefabrication technologies and developed his blueprints with a housing system that could easily be assembled, disassembled and reconfigured to accommodate evolving family lifestyles or changing owners. This fabulous Techbuilt model , five bedroom home currently offers oversized spaces and an open floor plan that was originally constructed to allow the removal and/or placement of interior walls, thus giving its owners the convenient flexibility to rearrange their room designs with minimal difficulty.

The distinctiveness of this contemporary is evident immediately from its exterior almost U-shaped fabrication and roof construction. Inside, each room flaunts imaginative details and fabrications that further demonstrates its distinctiveness.

For example, the spacious living room has cathedral wood and beamed ceilings with recessed lighting, a magnificent floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, picture windows, and two staircases leading to the upper level. The dining area shares the flavor of extraordinary architecture with a mix of curved and traditional floor-to-ceiling windows that provide magnificent views of the wooded landscape. The kitchen secures its reputation as the heart of a home nestled within the open floor plan and interactive with multiple rooms with its curved design and cut out walls. The family room claims its own personal touches with a built-in wood entertainment center and French doors.

Even the bedrooms boast innovative prototypes with creative touches such as a sloped ceiling, a wall of floor-to-ceiling built-in drawers and oversized windows.

This home is located on three quarters of an acre of land just steps away from the 2,500 acre Middlesex Fells Reservation. It is also conveniently located near Rte. 93 and minutes from downtown Boston. New residents can easily benefit from both the suburban comforts of Winchester and the excitement and diverse activities of the city. The flexibility of this property stretches way beyond its original construction. The combination of its originality and location make it a advantageous purchase on so many real estate levels.
