Nestled at the top of Lexington Road’s historic American Mile lies this updated antique colonial. In the heart of Concord Center, this home has been lovingly owned and maintained by the same family for 41 years. A renovation and additions by Concord’s Nashawtuc Architects increased the footprint while keeping the style and aura of the home. The first floor features a kitchen with Kennebec cabinetry, Subzero fridge, and stainless steel appliances. The oversized dining room features a spectacular floor-to-ceiling paned window with views of the gorgeous backyard paradise with patio and pool and the weathervane on the garage. Picture yourself on a snowy evening looking out at the scenic landscape. The living room is anchored by a wood-burning fireplace, the ideal spot to enjoy a casual dinner, and the front-to-back windows invite the light in to make everything bright and sunny. Just off the living room is an office with views of the bird feeders and backyard pool area, and a small sunroom is the place to read and contemplate the outside. The house features wide-board floors, some of wormy chestnut, along with an abundance of built-ins that create ideal storage spaces for books, pictures, and memorabilia from travels. The second floor has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The large primary suite is complete with a wood-burning fireplace, sitting area, bathroom, walk-in closet, and a small deck that overlooks the backyard. The walk-out and finished lower level has custom stone flooring from Ireland and France and a family room featuring another wood-burning fireplace. There is another bedroom and bathroom, perfect for guests or an au-pair. The adjoining pool room with cabinets and an under-the-counter fridge leads right to the hard-scaped patio and swimming area. Summers here are not to be missed! The landscaping is mature and full of treasures all over the property, which includes a large, quiet space behind the garage. From peonies to roses to holly and lenten roses, to special trees of all kinds, each season offers something to pick. And lucky dogs will take the right to roam the fully fenced yard. Don’t miss your chance at this in-town gem, and get ready to be the next steward of this truly one-of-a-kind home in a neighborhood known for its camaraderie.
