Heart of Concord
Built in 1875, this 2,400 square foot house radiates early Victorian charm which we have combined with the warm colors inspired by our time living in Mexico. The furnishings are simple and uncluttered making this a light, comfortable home in the heart of historic Concord. The first floor has a kitchen, family room, dining room, living room, foyer, and full bath. The second floor has a master bedroom, two smaller bedrooms, a full bath, and a home office. The house enjoys a landscaped yard filled with perennials and shade plants, with a private, Japanese style contemplative side garden. The rear yard has a private brick patio with Adirondack chairs and a private screened back porch under lots of shade from tall, leafy mature trees.
Concord is treasured for having conserved so much open space, yet Boston is only a short 30 minutes away. Not just a place of history, but a vibrant, living town, not just an open-air museum.
Here you are steps from everything – literally. Just around the corner is a playground, a library, several churches, an art center, a Starbucks, many restaurants, commuter rail service into Cambridge and Boston, and town services like a post office, bank, book store, and supermarket.
To stay fit you can walk through leafy neighborhoods of stately homes, swim at Walden Pond a mile away, run at the track across the street, jog in the Estabrook Woods, bike on the Minuteman Bike Path, paddle on the Concord River, play tennis on the public courts across the street, or work out at the town’s Beede Swim and Fitness Center, just a short walk away.
You can enjoy the very best of New England small town living, knowing all the culture and excitement of Boston and Cambridge are just thirty minutes away.
Concord is the quintessential New England small town, with its tall white church steeples, and town green at its heart.
Concord was founded in 1635 and its Old North Bridge is the birthplace of the American Revolution. Concord was home to the 19th century transcendentalists, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau, and its Walden Pond is seen as the birthplace of the American conservation movement. Numerous famous American authors found their inspiration here, including Emerson, Thoreau, Nathanial Hawthorne, and Louisa May Alcott, and for them Concord is known as the birthplace of American letters.
