The Lawrence Homestead is a centerpiece of the distinguished properties along Farmers Row, which follows an elevated ridge with sweeping western views from Mount Wachusett to Mount Monadnock. The 18th century main block was added to in grand style in the mid-19th century and became an 8,700± sq.ft. mansion, the focal point of the vast gentleman’s farm envisioned by the heir to a fortune created by the Lawrence’s mills. The property includes its key fields to the west, protected in perpetuity and available for use for agriculture or horses. To the south there is potential for an additional building lot or restoration of the historic gardens. The house has been used for many years as faculty housing for Lawrence Academy and Groton School, the beneficiaries of the sale. The grand reception rooms on the ground floor retain full period detail, while the secondary rooms and systems await a new vision or revitalization of the gentleman’s farm. The Lawrence Homestead has been in the family since the 18th century and is being offered to the public for the first time since its beginning.
