Video of 895 Old Road to Nine Acre Corner (ORNAC) | Concord, Massachusetts real estate & homes - Concord, Massachusetts is a historic town in Middlesex County. The community was settled early by the English as a frontier outpost of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and was the first interior, non-tidal water town in Massachusetts. The town still retains many well-preserved colonial houses, nine of them on or near the village green and witnesses of the famous Battle of Concord. Just 20 minutes' drive from Boston, the town boasts gorgeous natural and man-made scenery, a bounty of cultural and historic attractions, and some of the best public schools in the state.
895 Old Road to Nine Acre Corner has personality.  Set back off the road on a wooded 2 acre lot, it's beautifully sited in an area of much more expensive homes.

The house is unique, solid and meticulously maintained.   The most striking feature as you wander around this 3400 sq ft home, is the dramatic and luxurious sunken living room and dining room area.  Newly installed hardwood floors are perfect.  The marble fireplace provides a warm focal point.  There are sliders leading to the covered deck and oversized Anderson windows to let you enjoy the views of the natural surroundings.

The vintage kitchen is a retro lover's dream!  Original Thermador oven, The Geneva stainless sink and washboard countertops, and cooktop.  Enjoy your morning coffee, or a light lunch in the breakfast nook.  On a warmer day, head out to the 3 season porch.  This house is built to support the way you live your life.

As for lifestyle, the 2nd floor is amazing space for the reclusive, eccentric or the dramatic!  There's a huge master bedroom with a fireplace and sliders to the deck..  One of the two bathroom suites features a terra cotta spa and cedar walls.  In addition to the walk in closet, there is an adjacent large dressing room.  A 2nd master bathroom, with adjoining walk in closet and an office or exercise or hobby room also abuts a good size greenhouse.. looking for a green thumb.. In the hall, there's actually a mini kitchenette, with a small refrigerator, cooktop and washer/dryer.

The 1st floor bedroom wing may be the perfect setup for extended family, teenagers, or a home office.  There are 3 good size rooms, as well as a full bathroom.  This area of the house has not been updated, and is not shown on the video,- it's value to you is yet to be determined.

895 ORNAC is in a terrific and convenient location. Merely 1.5miles from Route 2, and Emerson Hospital, it's just a short ride in the other direction to Verrill farms and the restaurants and shops at Nine Acre Corner.  It's easy to head over to Route 128 via route 117 from this location.

As you drive into the circle driveway at the end of a long day,  take a deep breath.  Enjoy this retreat, a place of privacy and security.
