The Brackett House is a historic house at 276 Summer Avenue in Reading, Massachusetts. The 1.5 story house was built in 1920, and is Reading's best example of Bungalow style architecture. Its most prominent feature is its porch, which wraps around three sides of the house. It is supported by heavy stucco columns, with exposed rafter ends. One side of the porch is screened, while the front is open, and the third side is uncovered, providing a pergola-like environment.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
