A rare opportunity to own a piece of Hollis history and restore an untouched, 4 chimney brick-end Colonial. Surrounded by 65 acres of conservation land, this beautifully situated home, on 5 acres, is looking for the love and attention a nearly 200 year old property deserves. All the original features remain, including wide pine floors, wainscoting, full walk up attic with timber peg framing and kitchen fireplace with original Dutch oven, along with 6 additional fireplaces, 3 of which are closed off. Although there is work to be done, the potential is tremendous. There is currently no functioning kitchen, a single bath on 2nd floor, small unheated rooms not included in the overall square footage that can easily be incorporated into main living space. A recent home inspection was completed and reports can be found under the documents tab. Additionally, there will be a new septic design available. A more recently built workshop/garage is in excellent condition and has built in workbenches, ideally set up for woodworking and walk up storage. This home is by no means a tear down! The original owners lived modestly so please be respectful of the many years of memories this home has for the family.

    “Brick end Colonial”? I’m not familiar with that one.

    This is so sweet I just love it. Wallpaper in all rooms but one, beautiful floors etc. Love the out building. I could live here.

    A mee-maw lived here. And Hallmark-style memories ensued.

    Love the history of these old houses. The writing “Benj Wheeler” caught my eye as a genealogist, so I looked him up as Wheeler is an ancstral surname that I research. Benjamin Wheeler, born 1815 Hollis, Hillsborough Co., NH – died 5 Feb 1897 in Hollis. Parents: Amos Wheeler & Mary Rideout. New Hamphire is way too cold for me, but if I was in the market for a house in the north (and 20 years younger) – I’d definitely consider taking on this project. So many possibilities! Satellite dish would take care of the internet issue. Thanks for posting this!

    Bless those owners for living modestly! Nothing of its character was destroyed in the compulsion to be “modern”. Some updating, such as in the kitchen, would go a long way though! The new owner has just gotten a delightful property!
