Period home with all the modern amenities… the large open kitchen is well equipped. Laundry room has a full washer and dryer. Adjoined to the family room is a small study with a wood stove which can heat the entire house. A large formal living area is perfect for entertaining or just relaxing after a long day of hiking, shopping, or skiing. And upstairs, all four bedrooms have all the comforts of home. Two of the three bath rooms are upstairs. The master bedroom has a queen size bed in a large, cathedral ceiling room. French doors open to a veranda overlooking the side fenced in yard. Two other rooms have full size beds. The last bedroom has a full size futon and can be converted for use if needed. Three of the four bedrooms have cable TV and clock radios. The entire house enjoys wireless high speed broadband. Off the study, a large three season porch connects to a deck which can be gated or opened into a large fenced in yard; perfect for Fido! In the summer or winter, you can literally walk, or ski to the Whitaker Woods 180 acre conservation property which sports groomed cross country trails in the winter and prohibits motorized vehicle always. Hike, jog, run, and/or ski right from your backdoor. The area is peaceful and highly convenient to everything mountain life can offer.
I first climbed Mount Washington in 1969 with the cub scouts and I was hooked on the area. Since then I have visited this area almost every year since minus a military and relocation jaunt in the late 70's early 80's. I presently work in engineering and love it. As a benefit, I tend to repair / improve things myself and can respond in kind for any guests because we live less than one mile away on the weekends.
I bought this property because it stood vacant for quite a while during the height of the recession and I kept driving by it and it grew on me therefore, I decided to buy it as an investment property. Living less than one mile away, this property made the most sense as an investment seeing I can basically walk over to tend to any issue or assist a tenant.
I love this house because of the period it was built; 1890. I have always like antiques and the thought of times gone by and this house is the perfect place to invoke these feelings. The house has that in/close to town convenience. It also is located perfectly for navigating all of the town’s locales via back roads which is very important during high visitor seasons. The best benefit is it just feels like a home!
