Stately colonial (c. 1806) overlooks 46 acres of field, forest, stream and wetland toward horizon-filled landscapes from the Smith River Valley to the White Mountains. The charming two and a half story original structure features a grand living room with brick fireplace, four bedrooms, one and three-quarters baths, and many more rooms…parlor, dining, family. A one-story wing, built in 1987, consists of a modern kitchen, dining area with panoramic mountain views, a full bathroom; and a one-car garage/utility room beneath. Offering a gentle transition from indoor to out is a spacious screened porch that overlooks a bountiful fruit orchard and picturesque farm pond. A 40′ x 50′ two and a half story “bank barn” stands solidly on concrete footings, offers a variety of potential uses and houses a stand-by generator for the property. A conservation easement ensures the natural resource integrity of 43 subject acres and allows forestry and agricultural uses. Latitude is granted via a reserved right to accommodate the subdivision of a three-acre parcel, which could offer a second home site. Aptly named, North Acres is located in the Murray Hill Summer Home District, the region’s only rural historic district as noted in the National Register, where “a narrow paved road lined by stone walls and shaded by trees…crosses a plateau-like terrace on the north slopes of Page Mountain and Dickinson Hill.” Newfound Lake and Wellington State Park are just a short drive away.
