West End Walks. 107 Vaughan Street. A modern vision.


Another house I had failed to notice for 30 years. On my last stroll, I turned the corner of Carroll Street and Vaughan and headed south towards Bowdoin Street. From the corner of my eye, I saw the sight above.

Obviously modern but not outrageously so. Worth a closer look.


Very interesting. I like the color and materials. The way it is pushed back on the lot is nice. It seems to reflect the materials and details of the late 19th and early 20th century homes around it whilst proclaiming it’s modernity.
According to the tax records, it was built in 1980. It’s an Acorn house. Acorn is a builder of high-end modular homes based in Acton MA. At just over 2000 square feet, it’s a modest-sized home.

An interesting note, tax records list the owner as an LLC in San Francisco. Here are photos of the house taken in 2009.

    I am the person who updated the home. I bought it from a Doctor’s family after he passed. My wife had just passed away, and this project was my first project after her loss. The lady that bought it from me was Roxanne Quimby, of Burts Bees Products fame. Many of my home designs can be seen around the shores of Sebago Lake. I bought the home so my younger son would be closer to Cheverus High School.

    Hi Steve! Somehow this project floated into my head the other day, and I went looking for some pictures of it… The search led me here! I was so happy to see your comment above, and to know that you still exist somewhere in this world! I hope you are well! I do miss working with on fun projects like this one! VERY good times!
