Take note: this is not your average New England historic home. A far cry from all the crown molding-laden estates that preceded it, this was the dwelling built by Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius when he moved to Massachusetts to teach architecture at Harvard's Graduate School of Design. The family's possessions are still largely in place, including an extensive collection of furniture by fellow great Marcel Breuer.
