What We Love
About 17 AUBURN STREET

  • The beautifully landscaped gardens are a show-stopping standout in the neighborhood
  • The set-back siting provides peace and quiet
  • The large porch and lawns have ample entertaining space
  • A special antique restoration that maintains historic beauty
  • Concord’s accessibility--one hour from Boston, one hour from the seacoast, and a four-hour drive north to Quebec City or Montreal.

17 Auburn Street. Circa 1840, the home is uniquely recessed back from the street, giving the parcel a rare sense of privacy for a downtown home. The inviting kitchen was refurbished in 2010 and designed by Vintage Kitchens, local Concord heroes of quality cabinetry. It includes double Wolf ovens as well as two Viking cooktops and opens fully onto the warm family room, making the combined spaces ideal for gathering friends and family. Wide pine floors in the dining/family room blend seamlessly into the original cherry wood floors in the formal dining room. Just beyond the dining room, the living room’s enormous period windows keep it flooded in daylight and the same stunning brightness is echoed in the five upstairs bedrooms. Sited on just under an acre, the house’s front and rear lawns are level and broad with verdant gardens that have been maintained with care for decades. With 280 square feet, the screened porch has room to spare for entertaining, and looks onto the backyard, a feature with land enough to host large parties with constructed tents for dancing and refreshment.

Pride of ownership is abundantly evident in both the house and barn, with restorations and structural improvements throughout. The house was completely resided in 2008 with Norway Spruce clapboards. In 2009, the two-car garage—also known as the antique barn with massive storage loft—was given a structural upgrade with stainless steel beams, and the house’s stunning original windows were removed, repaired and re-glazed. Numerous utilities have been upgraded in the last few years.

The home is a stone’s throw from White Park, a child’s haven with playground, baseball, soccer, and city skating pond. Additionally, it’s a short five-minute drive to Concord Hospital, and equally close to bustling Main Street just a mile away.
