Fantastic farm property in need of rehab! Beautiful location, all fields and surrounding farms. Cash buyers only, please. House is late 1700's and needs major updating, but can be lived in while you work on it. Home has functioning heating system, electrical, plumbing etc. Attached barn is in good shape, but there is a large poultry barn on the property that is well on it's way down. If you are looking for a project in a great location, this home may be for you!

    It’s a shame about the poultry barn, looked like a cool building once.

    Is there a difference in “poultry barn” and “chicken house” or is “poultry barn” what they call it in the north?

      I’ve never heard the term “chicken house” growing up in PA. The “poultry barn” was where our farmer neighbors kept their 500 free-rangers at night, and while it was probably as big as this one, it wasn’t nearly so fun-looking. The “chicken coop” was what you’d have in the backyard for just a few chickens, doesn’t even have to be big enough to stand up in. As sad as it is to see this one come down, if someone carefully removes the building, they’ll have a super-fertile place to start a new garden!

        Interesting, chicken house is what we’d call it in the south. It’s the first time I’ve ever heard of “poultry barn” so thought it might be a regional thing.

          ‘Poultry’ should imply that they raised turkeys or other birds besides chickens. I’ve only heard of a chicken house myself (Midwest), but I only remember chickens being raised also, so that would make sense..

    I think the difference is just the size of the building. That poultry house must have been very cool in its day! I picture a multitude of birds!

    In this part of New York, I’ve only heard of chicken coops (small) and chicken houses (larger). Never heard the term poultry barn, not that it sounds odd or anything.

    This is a fun property! I imagine in it’s time it was quite the business.

    The setting of the poultry barn so close to the house must have made for stinky summers back in the day (or maybe it just smelled like money) but one could always get there to care for the birds during the meanest blizzard. This is an amazing house/barn combo that hasn’t been too remuddled and I admire it.

    Take the chicken house down, sell the wood as old reclaimed wood, make enough money to restore the house! Put in a nice Colonial Garden where the chicken house was and you could have a great property for not a lot of money. There are a lot of nice details in this house. This with a little elbow grease could really be a Colonial home. And it is only 25 minutes to Concord and less than an hour to Portsmouth.
