Oh my goodness, I’m having palpitations, this is the sweetheart Cape Cod home that architect Royal Barry Wills built for himself and his family in 1920 in Melrose, Mass. Before he went and got all famous and became the #1 influence (in my view) on mid-century homes all across America. This house should go into historic preservation. And – they should restore it inside and out to look just like it did on the magazine cover shown in the listing information — I assume it’s the same house. For sale as of July 2010.
