PROS This sprawling three-floor townhouse directly overlooks 47 acres of working farmland. Step outside onto private cart paths leading to the Concord Country Club; a bike trail is in the works nearby. The first floor holds a sun-drenched kitchen and living room with vaulted ceilings, dining room, and master suite with full bath and dressing room  —  all with fireplaces. Laundry is in the powder room. Upstairs, two enormous bedrooms have full baths; in the basement are another bedroom, full bath, office, and family room with fireplace. Heated two-car garage is elevated, with storage beneath. Condo fee includes landscaping and exterior maintenance. CONS Layout is a bit labyrinthine, and some rooms feel dated.
