    This is a fascinating house. do you know any of its history? I would love to know it, myself!

    • The Burrage House really is an amazing place… Have you had a chance to see it in person? I do know a little of its history from research online. It was built in the style of a French chateau in 1899 by Albert Cameron Burrage, a Lawyer, Financier, and Amateur Horticulturist who was born in Ashburnham, MA. In recent times, it was once owned by Patriot quarterback Tom Brady, and currently (I believe) is being used as an assisted living facility. You can see a bit of it’s recently restored interior in this short home tour video by Bob Vila: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjOKd2n_vQM
