Nashawtuc Hill Residence

This 3-acre property in the historic town of Concord merges a new home with surrounding topography and builds upon the neighborhood's historic and aesthetic influences. With ten entrances, the success of place making is rooted in expressing interior and exterior connections. Slabs of antique granite, Ipe decking, and stuccoed concrete risers with bluestone treads are instrumental in shaping the physical and visual experiences of the property. A formal entry walk of reclaimed bluestone and cobble slice through a sculptural grove of transplanted, mature mountain laurels and azaleas, and a new driveway sweeps past the front entrance of the house leading to a parking court. A meadow forms an intermediate zone between the domestic yard and the untamed woodland, and drifts of shrubs and perennials lend texture and scale to the home and outdoor spaces.

What is the color of the roof shingles and shutters? Do you have a picture to show this?

Hello--the roof is actually a natural cedar which has been left to go grey overtime. The shutters are a very dark, forest green/black. If you look through the other images in this set, you should be able to find an image to take with you to a paint store and they could help you source the right color and paint for your home. Good luck!

Hi there--sorry I don't have that information, but you could likely take this photo to any paint store and they could help you match it. Good luck!

what is the name of the ground cover - will it do well in full sun?

This is Pachysandra terminalis--a great groundcover for full shade. It will do well in full sun as long as it receives irrigation.
