Concord, New Hampshire
The vintage home and its handsome barn, and adjacent outbuildings are clustered into a front corner of the property’s 53.2 acres. This is where “ordinary” ends. The farm’s present owners transformed the house and all outbuildings into incredible, usable living and work spaces.
The center chimney colonial's interior is a delightful blend of natural woods, both rustic and sleek. The main level had an extensive reworking of its floor plan to reflect today’s wants of open space without sacrificing a classic mood and materials of the past.
The 42' kitchen spans nearly the entire length of the ell with warm woods including cherry flooring. The design has distinct workspaces for more than one cook. An AGA cast iron cooker can handle the largest of meals and the Sub-Zero refrigerator is hidden amid the cabinetry. An open area, with raised woodburning fireplace, lends itself to a casual dining space or sitting area.
Rooms in the main part of the house have been transformed into open living spaces with an easy flow. The design lends a clean look to these areas.
Upstairs are two front-to-back en suite bedrooms off a central hall. Both share similar features in the bedchambers; plank walls, exposed beams, and gorgeous fir floors.....The master enjoys a huge bath with antique clawfoot tub and walk-in steam shower. Closets are substantial and offer excellent off-season storage. The second suite is equally attractive. It, too, has an clawfoot tub for and a separate shower. The laundry is conveniently located in a separate room off the hall.
The barn is an amazing structure and will delight the senses around every corner. It has been transformed into a wonderful gathering room and library with a brick-floored service area with a rare Glenwood stove, soapstone sink and hot & cold water.
The barn also has two guest suites, one with a living room with kids’ loft, a bedroom, and full bath - designed inside the confines of the original milk room. The other has a large bedroom, full bath and walk-in closet.
All levels of the barn are useful with a walk-up storage loft overhead and a full concrete basement below with a 4-car garage, one bay being double deep, from here as well.
Another attractive building sits within several steps behind the barn. The center foyer leads to a home theater and an art studio. The theater was a sound studio in the past so the acoustics are great.
A farm workshop with equipment storage is next. At the far end, an Onan diesel generator stands ready to keep the power humming along to all buildings in the event of an outage.
An inviting screened pavilion is the final farm structure. It is expansive and perfect for warm-weather outdoor entertaining. It overlooks the orchard and fields.
Anniversary Farm has 52.3 acres, long road frontage and private well and septic systems, making it a self-sufficient property, if desired. Perhaps to gift a parcel or two to children or other family members. Should you care to plant for hobby or health, soils are good.
