– This home, built at the turn of the century, was pattered after the Longfellow House on Brattle Street in Cambridge. It is situated atop “Authors’ Ridge”, near the homes of Louisa May Alcott and Nathaniel Hawthorne. A winding drive leads to a beautiful view of the façade, a superb example of high Georgian architecture. Its 5.82 acres of lawns and wood-lands, where Thoreau spent many hours, affords complete privacy, yet it is within one mile of Concord’s historic center. This rare offering is easily accessible to Town Center amenities, train to Boston, and Route 2.
Built circa 1900 for Charles Hovey Pepper, a renowned landscape and portrait painter, this impressive historic Colonial with a hip roof has two stories, and a dormered full attic. The yellow clapboards, dentils, pilasters, fan lights, Palladian window, and other architectural details make it a truly beautiful home.
Interior features include crown moldings, wainscoting, hardwood floors, 9 foot ceilings, and elaborate fireplace ornamentation. A 1990’s expansion added right and left wings to the original structure which now boasts 12 rooms, 5+ bedrooms, and 5 ½ baths throughout 7,000 square feet with 5 fireplaces.
Front-to-back living spaces are filled with natural light with glassed walls embracing breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. Refreshed with many recent renovations, the residence offers the best of today’s amenities with historic appointments that bring out the home’s inherent warmth and character.
The property’s orientation is southerly with views of rolling lawns and woodlands. A recent landscaping redesign features a newly-planted front lawn and driveway approach plus a variety of trees and bushes. Located within the American Mile Historical District, the property abuts conservation restricted land and includes a gravel running track. Enjoy a leisurely stroll into Concord Center via sidewalks leading into Town.
Concord is a classic New England town, rich in history located approxi-mately 20 miles northwest of Boston. The commuter rail from Concord’s picturesque town center provides 35-minute service to Boston’s North Station, adjacent to the Financial District.
The Town is celebrated for its strong sense of community and quality of life, which includes excellent public and private schools, a newly-built community pool and fitness center, and area organizations devoted to the arts, theater and music.
Concord’s many historic sites include Old North Bridge, the site of the first battle of the American Revolution, and the homes of Emerson, Thoreau, and the Alcott family.
As a result of generous investments in conservation land and protected open space, the Town offers miles of trails over the lands of Estabrook Woods, Spencer Brook Valley, Thoreau’s Walden Pond and other beau-tiful conservation land throughout the town.
