18th Century – Gilmanton, NH – $889,000

1218 Province Rd, Gilmanton, NH 03237 - For Sale*

Only rarely do homes become available to the market that can be considered truly extraordinary. It is even rarer that such a home could be located in the equally extraordinary location known locally as "Frisky Hill." This is one of those homes. This masterpiece restoration of a classic 18th century center chimney cape, attached ell, and massive 65' x 43' barn artfully blends pristine historic architecture with modern conveniences making this a uniquely livable, comfortable, and completely manageable home. A spectacular, remodeled kitchen with marble countertops and massive fireplace, an updated sumptuous master bath, new "old oak" flooring in the Keeping Room and the requisite modern amenities are adeptly juxtaposed against wide pine floors, hand hewn beams, hand planed paneling, four fireplaces constructed with 18th century bricks, Indian shutters, a "Good Morning Staircase" and original period door hardware. But you may find that it is the setting, the land, and the view that enthralls and captures your heart. It is a timeless, idyllic setting a world apart from the ordinary. This is a retreat from the hectic and everyday stress of life. Only a private viewing of this landmark home can truly reveal all that this remarkable property has to offer. Historic homes have that undeniable warmth, charm, and character that add their own lives to yours in a way that a newly constructed residence never can. You may come to visit for an hour but you may want to stay for a lifetime.
