Home of the Week: 42 Border Road
This beautiful Concord colonial has been under the care of its original owners for over four decades.
Editor's Note: This week begins a slightly different approach to our Home of the Week feature. We'll still highlight a gorgeous local home on the market, but they featured real estate will alternate between Lexington and Concord properties.
Advantageous residential purchases such as this do not appear on the real estate market very often. This fantastic family home has been under the loving care of its original owners for over 40 years and has been meticulously maintained and updated to greatly serve its new title holders for many equally fulfilling years.
Its upgrades include central air conditioning, hardwood floors, a fully renovated kitchen and custom built-ins in the family and living rooms. Its timeless colonial floor plan also offers conveniences, such as first-floor laundry servoces, spacious room dimensions, a fluid blueprint and two-car attached garage.
Border Road is located in the picturesque Thoreau Hills neighborhood consisting of a network of tree-lined interconnected streets conveying a quintessential New England setting. This specific address is sited on a knoll offering stunning views of private woodlands from every room.
Guests are greeted into the home with a welcoming sun-drenched front foyer and sight lines of various rooms and guided directly into the oversized 25 x 13 square foot front-to-back living room with built-in bookcases. The 13 x 11 square foot gourmet eat-in kitchen comes fully equipped with a Thermador gas range and second Thermador oven, a sub-zero refrigerator, Gaggenau dishwasher and new granite countertops. This custom-designed culinary center completely embraces its responsibility as the heart of this home, not only in its design but also with its seamless access to the 23 x 13 square foot family room that includes beautiful cherry built-ins, a sewing closet, built-in desk, gas fireplace and neighboring screened-in porch. The kitchen also conveniently borders the 13 x 11 square foot formal dining area complete with chair rail moldings and paned windows.
An L-shaped staircase provides family privacy from the front foyer and leads to the second level that boasts four bedrooms. The 19 x 13 square foot master suite offers a three-quarter bath and walk-in closet while the three additional bedrooms at 11 x 11 (2) and 11 x 10 square feet supply generous closet space.
The finished lower level can be directly accessed from the garage through a mud room or the front hall and flaunts 700 square feet of living space not included in the total listed dimensions. This versatile room is lined with a Berber-style carpet and would make an ideal home office, recreation or second family room.
Many familial memories have been created within this thoughtfully cared for home and prospective homebuyers have such a unique opportunity to assume the important role as caretaker for a property that has shielded and comforted its original owners for over four decades. An open house is scheduled for this weekend where visitors can view for themselves the good fortune of the Concord real estate market, and ultimately one fortunate family.
