Lot Size: +/- 88.4 acres
SOLD! Impressive in scale and architecture, The Farm (as it is affectionately known) was custom-built for its only owner and has been in the same family for nearly 30 years – never before offered for sale!
This Georgian Colonial residence located in southern New Hampshire has a regal brick exterior, and brand-new slate roof (with new copper gutters) that sets off a handsome front portico supported by Corinthian columns. Beautiful interior millwork frames fireplaces, doorways and stairs in an elegant, formal style. The grand foyer – complete with two-story iconic columns and a stunning Schonbek crystal chandelier – is graced with a double staircase leading up to a spacious sitting area with breathtaking hillside views of the New England landscape.
The ground-floor entertaining areas are equally stylish, offering custom, inlaid hardwood floors, wood-coffered ceilings, and a generous family recreation area complete with soda fountain, billiards room, indoor pool and spa. The pool, spa and a gorgeous sunroom are bathed in light filtering through the Machin conservatory (a style of entirely glass greenhouse beloved in the United Kingdom for its bow-end roofline) installed by skilled artisans from North Carolina.
Designed for entertaining, the Property has regularly hosted gatherings of up to 300 guests, making it an ideal location for charity galas, weddings or extended family gatherings; it even has a separate, commercial-grade catering kitchen to accommodate special events where guests gather in the Property’s many open spaces, terraces and sitting areas for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
Upstairs, each well-appointed bedroom has an en-suite bath, some with delightful murals by artist John C. Traynor gracing the walls. The master suite is especially lovely, and offers walls of windows, a fireplace, and bathroom with a large, jetted tub set next to a bow window overlooking the grounds. A double vanity, shower, dressing area and his-and-hers walk-in closets complete the suite, which encompasses an entire wing of the upper level. Other rooms include a handsome library, executive office, cheerful sewing room and a fitness center adjacent to the pool. The Property also offers a studio apartment over the attached garage, and a detached, 4-car garage in the style of a traditional red barn.
Groomed walking trails, manicured plantings and lush lawns surround the estate, which also boasts a charming gazebo. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the tennis/basketball court, putting green and pond as well as maintained hiking and ATV trails within the wooded acres of the estate.
Although private, this Property is just minutes from the entertainments to be had at Spofford Lake (including the exclusive Spofford Yacht Club, founded in 1898), Pine Grove Spring golf course and Keene Country Club. Major ski areas are within an hour’s drive and a 15-minute jaunt will take you to Interstate 91, Brattleboro, Vermont or Keene, New Hampshire, where you will find dining, shopping, cultural enrichment and first-rate healthcare. It is also approximately 90 minutes from Hartford, 2 hours from Boston, and 3 hours from New York City; so, weekend trips to some of the most vibrant cities on the east coast are a short drive away.
