The perfect place to escape

10-19-16-featured_334_Bennett_St

Dreaming of escaping?

Surrounded by 3,000- and 4,000-foot peaks, a trout-filled babbling brook, open fields for grazing or growing, and the start of the White Mountain National Forest hiking trails, this is an ideal retreat from the pressures of this world.

Rocking on the screened porch as the wind whistles down the mountain tops or sipping a hot drink by one of the five cozy fireplaces make this home the type of property that washes away the stresses of everyday living.

The home, situated on almost 32 acres of field and forest, is composed of a center chimney cape, an ell and a three-story barn. These three historic buildings that date from the 17th and 18th century, were relocated to the current site, connected and rebuilt, combining antique components of the original structures with modern energy efficient construction.

An old-fashioned swimming hole along the Cold River and the town beach on Squam Lake are only minutes away.

Upon arrival at the home, residents and guests are welcomed by mountain views, charming historic architecture, beautifully maintained gardens and the serene sounds of nature. The home has been tastefully decorated and designed by Julie Fergus of American Home Design in Wolfeboro with custom restoration work done by H.B. Bullard.

Modern amenities and additions include a granite faced poured concrete 10 inch foundation, energy-efficient Buderus boiler and hot water heater, ultra-quiet Bosch dishwasher, Thermador 6 burner stove top, dual oven Thermador range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, LED task lighting over kitchen counters and a 6 foot deep soaking bathtub.

Upstairs, the master bedroom features a spacious closet, cozy fireplace and dressing room. The impressive master bath has a custom marble vanity, a 6-foot soaking tub with custom-built beadboard surround with Vermont Danby marble deck and backsplash, and inviting window seats that look out to the fields and mountains.

Perfect for a long hot soak and the end of good hike out the doorstep. There is also a second level laundry area with Miele washer/dryer and office/ study.

Attached to the home is the historic reconstructed, “Bean-Scribner,” 50-by-42 barn that contains a workshop and three bay garage.

No need to go outside in inclement weather to unload groceries, access the workshop or tend to the animals.

The barn offers an enclosed upstairs hayloft, a chicken enclosure with access to an outdoor run and frost-free spigot. The 20-by-20 workshop has 220-volt power, is fully insulated, and has its own dedicated gas furnace.

Other features of the home include a Paul Revere copper roof and copper gutters, 72 solar panels on the barn roof, which power the property and generates a semi-annual payment for power sold to the grid and 24/ 7 backup generator.334 Bennett Street | 31 Acre farm for sale in Sandwich, NH
