Brookline Mid-century Modern House

    This Old House is headed back to Brookline, Massachusetts, for the second half of our 40th season. When we first visited the Boston suburb in 1983, we built a new contemporary style house and outfitted it with state-of-the-art solar energy techniques for its time. This season, we’ll be modernizing a split-level mid-century home for homeowners Sunil and Neha and their 2-year-old daughter.
