Erected in the roaring ’20s, this red-brick Colonial is built like a fortress, perched atop Nashawtuc Hill in Concord.
The 6,502-square-foot property at 325 Nashawtuc Road hit the market Jan. 17 for $4,975,000. The home boasts five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms on 2.71 acres.
Though the brick façade and slate roof make for an imposing exterior, white walls and white oak floors throughout create a softer interior.
“When you enter into the front hall, you sort of feel like you are transformed into a different lifestyle,” said the listing agent, Brigitte Senkler of Coldwell Banker Realty. “It’s very elegant.”
The airy entryway opens into the living room. Large bay windows brighten the room, letting light reflect off the light-colored floors and white wainscoting. A wood-burning fireplace sits between two sets of windowed doors that lead to the screened-in porch.
To the right of the entrance, a layered chandelier, a gas fireplace, and detailed woodwork add elegance to the dining room. A door from here opens into the study, which has a long built-in desk and a sitting area with a gas fireplace.
This room connects to the kitchen, which features wood cabinetry, a gas stove, stone countertops, and a dining area. The kitchen shares an open floor plan with the family room, where arched doors lead to a stone terrace.
All of the home’s five bedrooms, including the primary suite, are on the second floor. The primary suite boasts double dressing rooms and a wood-burning fireplace. Each of the bedrooms has white oak floors, and all but one offers an en-suite bathroom. The fourth full bathroom is of the hallway on this floor. There are two more rooms on this level, which the sellers used as a study area and a game room.
The detached three-car garage offers additional living space, with an office, a half bath, and a gym. There’s also a detached two-car garage on the lot.
The extensive grounds with tiered lawns are ideal for those who like to stay active outdoors, with a heated pool.
