Concord house description

Nestled in the woods 90 minutes North of Boston (and 20 minutes North of Concord, New Hampshire) this newly renovated 800 square foot (75 sq meter) passive solar 'barn' is ideal for short getaways and longer holiday escapes to explore New England.

Set back from road and very private, the property boasts loads of light and hardwood floors throughout - in addition to a greenhouse for soaking up the sun.

House faces directly onto a garden and spacious country outdoor area for evening drinks and outdoor dining in the warmer months. In the colder months, the winter wonderland surrounds the cottage, while the fireplace, a cup of tea and good book keep you cozy indoors.

Iron, hair dryer, vacuum, TV, DVD/CD player (with iPod speaker hook up)
Basic Cable, Wifi Internet and Land line Telephone (international calls subject to charge)
Trash removal (Wed or Sat/weekly)

          Just North of Concord, New Hampshire, the cottage is located one hour South of the White Mountains and one hour West of the charming New Hampshire/Maine Seacoast.

          The property is a stone’s throw from the Canterbury Shaker Village - a beautiful historic village open for tours, gardening and other talks, fairs and activities throughout the year plus access to 3,000 acres of surrounding walking trails and ponds for the nature enthusiast or cross country skier.

          The Loudon International Raceway, for NASCAR enthusiasts, is a ten minute drive as well.

          Our property makes the perfect home base for exploring locally and a little bit further afield be it the mountains, the sea or getting lost on the windy roads somewhere between one and the other.


          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1980

          About the owner: Greetings - Thank you for taking a look at our property. I have lived in the area since the mid-70's, and as much as I love traveling and seeing the world, I love coming home to the area and the fresh air and open skies of New Hampshire after being away. I grew up in Connecticut and have been a professional in education on many levels since returning from the Peace Corps in Ethiopia in 1973. I currently live on the property up the hill in the main house on the property - don't worry - privacy I appreciate and respect - so you'll only see me to welcome you or when you need assistance with something. I hope you will come enjoy our country retreat. We love the space and think you will too...

          Why the Owner Chose Concord:
          I built the property in 1980 after buying the land from an old local family that owns much of the land in the area. The rolling hills and fields around the house are thanks to this family that have put hundreds of acres in land trust so they cannot be developed. We all get to enjoy the benefits of a gorgeous natural surrounding!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Our daughter lived in New York City for years and loved the escape of coming to the cottage and having all the luxuries of a new space in a very old simple and amazingly fresh surrounding. The old barn got a face lift and all the sudden we were flooded with guests :)
