On the Market: An Upscale Farmhouse in Concord
All new everything beautifies this home's rustic bones.
Size: 4,000 square feet
“Upscale farmhouse” may sound like an oxymoron. But taking a peek inside this 19th century dwelling should convince you otherwise. Let’s start with the lighting: A contemporary medley of brass and glass chandeliers (and a bathroom fixture made of glass crystals), recessed lighting, and skylights illuminate two stories of airy living space.
But in true farmhouse fashion, the kitchen is the center of this home. The room sports a six-burner range, Sub-Zero fridge, wine cooler, and apron sink. Plus, a 10-foot island with quartz countertops has built-in shelves to stash cookbooks. Details such as walnut open shelving and a wooden support beam add a dose of rustic charisma, while blue and white Shaker cabinets with brushed brass hardware maintain a modern finish.
Nearly every room boasts an aesthetically interesting element: Vaulted, paneled, and beamed ceilings; bold wallpaper and floral tiles; reclaimed wood sliding barn doors and floor-to-ceiling windows. Beyond the design, a new roof, windows, and electrical system ensure a solid home for years to come.
With all its sparkling renovations, this classic abode offers a decidedly farmhouse feature: a mudroom. Lined with storage cubbies, the practical space leads to a few more useful areas—a two-car garage, workshop, loft, and granite and bluestone patio. And of course, the most pastoral part of it all is the grassy and tree-filled yard the property sits on, almost an acre of bucolic Concord land.
