The Space

A spectacular and rare rental opportunity while this house is on the market. Long or short term rentals are available at the moment.

This New England home is surrounded by brilliant colors reflecting off the Sudbury River, meadows and woodlands abound, and a spot to be enjoyed whatever the season. This is one of the most spectacular spots to see the New England leaves, the winter snows, or the spring colors.

Located in Concord Ma, 20 miles west of Boston and Cambridge it has easy access to schools and other towns and Boston hospitals.
One mile to the train, twenty minutes to Alewife station. This is one of the most beautiful and affluent historic towns in New England. There are so many biking and walking trails, historic sites and the home of Thoreau, Emerson and the Alcotts with near-by Walden Pond. The September issue of Boston Magazine highlights it here: (website hidden)

This estate, sits atop 40 acres adjoining the river and is surrounded by another 40 acres of conservation land behind it .While you experience a quiet area in the midst of nature, it is one mile to the historic Concord, filled with history,private schools, sites, and shopping opportunities.

The "rustic eclectic", 1905 home is perfect for a large family where family reunions or other holiday gatherings become the setting for entertaining and long term living.

Each one of the five bedroom suites is spacious with its own bath and often fireplace. There is about 7,500 sq. ft of living space plus balconies and screen porches, patios etc..

The first floor living area flows easily from a large living area and adjoining screened porch, to a formal dining area, to a large state of the art kitchen where several people at once can cook or hang out and chat.

There is river access and the ability to ride the pontoon or canoes over from the North Bridge Boat House. Walking trails abound. Bikers peddle all over this area and in winter the cross country sking is everywhere.

This is a wonderful comfortable artist's home – a weekend country house and getaway or can be used as a main home with nearby schools and restaurants.

Prices are negotiable depending on length of stay and numbers of people. Looking for the perfect buyer or short term renter who might convert to a long term renter....with proper permitting events are available as well.

Guest Access

Everything any family who lives there would...the joys of a town in the woods with all the conveniences of history and affluence. You enjoy the entire house and all of the 20 acres down to the river and into the woods.

Interaction with Guests

By email and phone quite a bit before they arrive. My caretaker and cleaner are available throughout the stay.

Getting Around

If you are able to get to the train one mile away. It is sidewalk all the way.

Other Things to Note

The town is very clear about rentals being for a minimum of thirty days...so there is as little disruption to the neighborhood as possible. Every effort should be taken to ensure the rental will be quiet with a minimum of activity and an awareness of the neighbors needs as well. Obviously no smoking, no large cars such as buses, loud things like motorcycles etc...things that might be seen as disruptive or loud, fireworks .
