A private road leads you up to Four Winds Farm - which sits upon 7 acres in the middle of a 200+ acre working hay farm. Fields and woods surround the south facing house providing you with an amazing view of Mt. Monadnock. Every room has at least one sliding glass door to take advantage of the beautiful views and making the house bright and airy.
On the 1st floor is a large, fully equipped kitchen leading to a dining room on one side, and living room on the other. The cherry dining table comfortably seats 10. Attached to the kitchen is a laundry room with washer/dryer and a half bath.
The north end of the house has a large family room with a wood burning fireplace, built-in bar & bar table, 52' flatscreen TV with a DVR & DVD player and a leather sectional sofa. A large dvd library is provided.
The south-facing living room has a floor-to-ceiling stone wood burning fireplace, a built-in bookcase filled with books & games and a Bose CD player.
The first floor bedroom wing, which can be closed off by a door in order to provide privacy, consists of a bunk room with 2 sets of bunks, a room with 2 twin beds, and a Queen bedroom. Each bedroom has a sliding glass door facing south and its own outdoor seating. At the end of the hall is a full-size bath with a tub/shower and double sinks. A port-a-crib is available for little ones.
The 2nd floor contains the master wing, consisting of a king-size bedroom, en suite bath with a shower and a separate sitting area with a tv/dvd and sliding door leading to a small balcony overlooking the pool.
A patio runs the full length of the bedroom wing and leads to a large wrap-around deck which has direct access to the living room and kitchen through 4 sliding glass doors. There is a gas grill, and wrought iron tables and chairs to seat 10.
There is a large game room in the finished basement. We have a pool table, ping pong table, foosball, darts and a sitting area.
The brand new 20' x 40' in-ground pool is located on the southwest side, providing you with a beautiful sunset view. The fenced-in pool has its own patio area and lounge chairs. Here there is also a separate hot tub, apple trees, a pear tree and blueberry bushes. Since we are the only house on this hill, it is very peaceful and quiet.
The cul de sac driveway provides plenty of parking, along with a 2 car garage. The large basement has a foosball table and a ping pong table.

We moved to Walpole 22 years ago to raise our 4 kids, and just love the area. It's a fantastic location - in the countryside but only 10 minutes to downtown Keene or Walpole. Tons of great restaurants, movie theaters, and wonderful live shows at the Colonial Theater.
Head North 6 miles, and you're in downtown Walpole - one of the most picturesque NE towns. Here you have the award winning Burdicks Chocolates & Cafe for amazing dinners, Murrays for breakfast & lunch, the town common for summertime band concerts & the weekly farmer's market.
3 great golf courses are within 10 miles, and for winter activities, Okemo and Stratton Mtn are both within an hour's drive - excellent family-friendly downhill ski areas. Grafton Ponds has beautifully maintained cross-country ski trails, and if it's a family sledding outing you're searching for, head 12 miles south to Granite Gorge.
We purchased this home because of the location. Located high on a hill on its own road with amazing views of Mt. Monadnock and the surrounding area, every visitor comments on how incredibly peaceful it feels. And the fact that it's midway between 2 lovely towns - Keene & Walpole, and 6.7 miles to Alyson's Orchard, makes it a wonderful place to stay.
Four Winds is private and peaceful yet within 15 minutes of 2 towns. There is plenty of room for kids to run around. People come with plans to visit attractions, and find they love just hanging around the property and relaxing.
