Contingent (9 Days)


Perched on a knoll overlooking Ralph Waldo Emerson's Concord home, the Lucy Jackson Brown House was built by Emerson for his wife's Sister, and constructed with the help of his good friend, Henry David Thoreau in 1845. Extensive renovations include a new open-floorplan Chef's Kitchen, renovated Family Room, new baths, mudroom, screened sunroom, new wide-plank oak flooring, and a new wrap around covered porch, all in keeping with the charm and historic character of the original structure, with its high ceilings and period details. A large detached barn with loft opens up a world of opportunity for an additional dwelling unit, private office, recreational room and/or in-law suite. The .88 acre property abuts Philosopher's Park, creating a hard-to-find, serene and private in-town setting. Entertain in the same spaces that were enjoyed by The Emerson's, Thoreau, and The Alcott's. Only a short stroll to restaurants, shops, historical sites, nature trails and the commuter rail to Boston.
