Amazing Waterview Historic Estate
Where: Concord, Massachusetts
Prepare for goose bumps as you wind up the quarter-mile-long road to this 1905 five-bedroom estate (from $15,900 per month), once the home of Henry David Thoreau. Maybe it’s the fireplace in the dining room. Or the antique wood-burning stove (right next to the modern one). Or the gorgeous grand staircase. Or that you’ll be exchanging vows at a spot situated on 40 acres off the scenic Sudbury River that’s as picturesque on the inside as it is on the outside.
