About This Old House

Steeped in history & deeply rooted among literary masters is the famed Thoreau-Alcott house. The Thoreau Family purchased this Center property in 1849 and where Henry David Thoreau wrote much of Walden. The 3 floor center-entry Federalist Colonial combines major historical significance w the best modern amenities. Gracious floor-ceiling windows, warm wood floors and nine working fireplaces are among the features that distinguish this wonderful family home. In 1877, the Thoreau’s sold the property to the Alcott’s who added a 2-story west wing addition. Since then, many more updates were added, seamlessly transporting this gem into the 21st century: kitchen renovation, 3-story barn addition hosting 3 car gar & bonus room with striking beams and radiant heat, modern systems and two mudrooms. Impressive .75 a lot has heated Gunite pool, stunning private yard and colorful perennial gardens.To quote HDT: ‘Live the life you have imagined’ in this coveted treasure and own a very special piece of Concord’s remarkable history!
