Location: Concord, Massachusetts
An exquisite colonial home dating back to 1767 is on the market in Concord, Massachusetts, begging to be brought back to its former glory. Although it’s been lovingly cared for and restored over the years, a few more updates—like a new kitchen—would make this antique gem sparkle.
Known as the Samuel Jones House, the 2,236-square-foot colonial has a storied past according to the listing, and includes a few notable residents like Transcendentalist poet William Ellery Channing and abolitionist Franklin Benjamin Sanborn.
The three-story wood-frame house features original millwork, exposed beams, wide-plank floorboards, window seats, built-in shelving, and wood paneling throughout. There are five spacious bedrooms as well as formal common spaces and attic space—all trimmed in a variety of traditional colors, while the .75-acre lot provides plenty of outdoor enjoyment, including a stable.
Located at 325 Main Street, the home is offered at $1.495 million.
