6 Edgewood Drive
1,638 sq. ft.
1.2 acre lot
A lovely natural setting just minutes from Concord and the highway!
If you fell out of an airplane onto the front lawn of this home, you'd never believe that all the amenities of Concord--shopping, restaurants, theaters--are just a few minutes up the road.
The 1.2 acre lot is nicely landscaped, features open garden space, a broad patio (part of which can be covered by an awning), a gazebo, and lots of woods for the kids to explore.
There's even an outdoor shower, so you can mow the lawn in your bathing suit and cool off afterwards, or wash off the mud from your boreal adventures.

As you step inside, you'll be surprised at how spacious the breezeway/mudroom is. There's more than enough room for boots, coats, gloves, dog crates, etc. Or just put a few chairs and a table out here and have one more spot to relax.
From the breezeway you enter a roomy eat-in kitchen
With its granite counters, updated cabinets, and stainless steel appliances, this will be favorite gathering spot for friends or family, and you can watch the wildlife out the windows as you dig into your chicken pot pie!
When you're not chowing down or baking cinnamon rolls in the kitchen, you can kick back in the living room and watch the rain or snow out the large bay window. And because the laminate flooring in kitchen and living room is dog-proof, you can invite Bella and Bailey in to curl up next to the wood stove with you.
That wood stove provides a great deal of heat for the home, and it's supplemented by an oil furnace and baseboards, so the costs to heat the home are very modest. The current owners use about 20-30 gallons of oil per month (the hot water heater is off the boiler as well) and 3 cords of wood per year.
First floor half bathroom.
The first floor also includes two of the bedrooms. Although the town lists this as a 4-bedroom home, it is serviced by a 3-bedroom septic system. The first bedroom includes a walk-in shower adjacent to the the half bath, so the closet could be converted to a shower and the room converted to an office or guest room.
Second bedroom on the first floor.
If you head upstairs, you'll be surprised at the size of the other two bedrooms.
The master bedroom is startlingly large for a Cape--it measures almost 20' x 18' and features beautiful mahogany floors, as well as lots of storage under the eaves.
Fourth bedroom, measuring appx. 19' x 10'.
The full bath rounds out the second floor.
Head down to the basement and you'll see that the high ceilings there would allow you to finish even more living space if you wanted.
If you like to tinker, the workshop area will become like a second home, and there's built in shelving and lockable cabinets to keep your tools, chemicals, or antique Christmas decorations safe from kids.
The washer, dryer, and freezer are included in the sale, and the house also features a Culligan reverse osmosis whole-house filter, and a EasyWater no-salt water softening system.
As mentioned, this home is only 2.2 miles to I-89, and another mile or two into Concord, so the location is unbeatable.
It's also just up the street from the McLane Audubon Center (formerly known as the Silk Farm Center) which features exhibits, live animals (including a Bald Eagle, Red-tailed Hawk, Peregrine Falcon, Screech Owl, and Barred Owls), picnic areas, several miles of hiking trails, function rooms, and a Nature Store.
