    I got a kick out of the man in suspenders and straw hat. It’s hard to tell, but I don’t believe the appendage with the sliding doors is original to the structure. The gable end of the appendage dies have a 6 over 6 sash up top.

      ?????? what

      • Jason B says: 196 comments

        You have to go to the Google street view to see both the man in suspenders and straw hat, and the old unpainted gable end of the “garage” addition to the original structure. Both items I was talking about are on opposite ends of the house. Also, there is a typo, that word is supposed to be “does” instead of “dies”. This iPhone is horrible about changing what I actually type to a different word, & I don’t always catch it in time.

    Man. It’s endless what you could do here. Spit shine, change the hanging blue light fixture hah, I wouldn’t even do much with the little kitchen and would definitely keep the bathtub, get the fireplace working, whoo hee rescue a few horses, adopt 5 more shelties, I can live happy here.

    The date on this house appears to me closer to the 1850-1860 period. I always had an interest in this particular town because it was founded in 1770 by settlers from Stratford, Connecticut. The area is quite remote and has some of the coldest winter weather in the continental U.S., but there are those of us who would consider that a plus. The mountain scenery is about as unspoiled as you’re likely to find anywhere.

    That piece of property is wonderful, only a little too far north (cold). The house has much original detail. It really just needs someone’s personal touch. I love the Gothic detail in the door panels, and that bathtub is a keeper for sure.

    I would hate to see what the taxes are on it , NH is high …… we used to live in the far northeast of VT. I survived 17 years of VT winters , we had enough and sold our historic jailkeeper’s house and jail attached and moved back to PA.

      Zillow shows taxes $2k…..cheap. Wonder if that is correct, seems really low.

      I used to live in NH. High property taxes are only in the southern areas close to Boston’s urban sprawl and around Hanover/Dartmouth area. NH also has NO state sales tax and NO state income tax!!

    I live about 15 miles south of this place. Rte 3 is a pretty busy road, with lots of truck traffic. Friday night traffic from people going to recreate on weekends is heavy too. Lucky for me we live one street over from Rte 3. It is a great area for fly fishing with the Connecticut River at your backdoor a bonus. It’s not that cold up here by the way.

    Other than wishing for about 1,000 more pictures, this is a gem in many ways. Be nice if the original shutters were stuck away someplace. Most every home has an issue for someone, Route 3 would not be one of mine..
