The Colby Camp
267 Corn Hill Road, Boscawen
A rare offering of 113 acres that have been stewarded by the same family for 4 generations, serving as a family retreat and weekend/holiday get-away. One can only imagine the many good times had here as family and friends would gather to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this fabulous setting.
The cabin was built between 1942 and 1952, and updated with a roof and windows in the 1990’s. It has primarily been used as a family camp for weekends and holidays. Although a little bit rustic, it's quite charming! Measuring just 14’ x 31', it is just about 434 sq/ft with an 18’ x 8‘ screen porch that was added in the 90’s, perfect for morning coffee or evening meals. The cabin features a partial kitchen with room for the dining table, sleeping quarters and generous living room. Primarily heated by a wood stove, there’s also a supplemental gas heater, refrigerator and gas range. The electric and phone lines were brought in underground to keep the setting as natural as possible. There is no well or septic on site, but there is an outhouse.
The barn is a beauty. The 3-level 36' x 32' Post & Beam barn with metal roof was built from a kit designed by Country Carpenters out of Hebron, CT. Currently the first floor is used for entertaining but could easily be modified for horses or livestock. The second floor houses a woodworking shop, and the basement walls are concrete built into the bank creating a great area for tractors and storage.
The sugar shack is a 12' x 24' building that is ready to go for tapping some trees and trying your hand at making your own maple syrup. There is a section perfect to store firewood, and an open porch for the picnic table and even a swing that overlooks one of the open fields.
The land consists of 113 acres of pristine, well-managed woodlands with 1200' of road frontage and a long 800’ private drive, ready to create a beautiful homestead or potential subdivision. Old stone walls delineate what were most likely pastures for sheep back in the day. There are old logging roads that create trails throughout the property for hiking, horses, or hunting. The property has had a forest management plan in place with a good mix of both hard and soft woods and was last selectively cut in 2012. There are a few open acres, but more could easily be cleared to create space for livestock.
The Town of Boscawen has its roots in agriculture and farming. Its residents enjoy living in a small rural community with many recreational opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast. Located nearly in the center of the state, it’s an easy commute east to the seacoast or north to the lakes and mountains.
This is a great property to create a private homestead, use it as a hunting camp, or just a great getaway to enjoy the outdoors. Located on a paved country road just 10 minutes to I-93, 20 minutes to Concord, New Hampshire’s state capital, and under 1 ½ hr. to Boston, MA.
