In the 1800s, wealthy Bostonians chose Lancaster for summer estates. The Parker Family built a stately home on 100+ acres. The last Parker resident, Great Aunt Cornelia, was unable to keep a large home and demolished the main house in the early 1900s, then renovated the property now offered—originally built as the family’s private bowling alley. Today, the brick residence offers half-moon windows, hand carvings, walnut/oak floors and 24+ species of spectacular trees on 3.86 acres. Remaining acreage was donated as conservation land with trails (some horse-friendly), keeping the current residence very private. Until 2019, the home was rented ($1800-$2000/mo). The attached brick carriage house and garage with cobblestone floors need work, but the results (studio, office, guest suite?) could be wonderful. Potential for pool, barn, stables. The property is close to Route 2, I-190, MBTA Fitchburg station. MLS attachment has more pictures, tree species, and recent updates (roof, window, installation of four Mitsubishi mini-splits for heat/a/c.) If you want a project worthy of your investment, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
