Olde Town Farm

61 Helena Drive, New Boston

$449,000

Hidden along a quiet, dead-end country road in New Boston in southern New Hampshire, Olde Town Farm offers an array of features for farm, country home and horse lovers.  Whether the home of your dreams for you and your horses and/or smaller livestock or your fabulous, ultimately private weekend getaway from city life, there’s something for everyone here. Run to an award-winning bakery in less than 5 minutes that serves breakfast and lunch and has dinners to go, too!
 
Starting with its 28 acres, there is long frontage along a class 6 road that is shared by a handful of year-round owners.  The land is mostly lightly wooded with cleared areas around the house and barn. There are trails onsite and old dirt roads to explore with the dog or on horseback.  The land is not considered subdividable.
 
A true timberframe, the main portion of the house has everything you’d expect - a blend of natural materials like hardwood flooring, exposed oak frame, and native stone-faced chimney with granite hearth that holds the woodstove. The framing naturally delineates the open-concept living spaces. Adaptable to your lifestyle, the house was designed with living and dining areas spanning the front of the house. The granite-capped and stainless applianced cherry kitchen has an attractive mosaic glass tile backsplash and a big work island with room for meals on the run. A more recent addition with a full basement under added a family room with a gas fireplace. Flip a switch for instant ambiance. A full bath, laundry, and home office (or small spare bedroom as it sits adjacent to a full bath) are located in the back hall where there is direct access to the attached 2-car garage.
 
Upstairs, the generous master bedroom boasts a cathedral ceiling, good closets, and direct access to a hobby room or office space in a very quiet area of the house. Open a door and step out onto the balcony overlooking the living areas. Two smaller bedrooms, one with a fun ladder loft, and a newly remodeled full bath with stone sink and attractive tile complete the second floor.
 
Besides the newer basement under the addition, the original full basement houses the mechanical systems including a Buderus boiler.  From here, walk into the bermed greenhouse, perfect for starting spring seedlings and perhaps growing delicious microgreens all year.  The rear of this basement is also walkout and ready to finish if you need the additional space.  
 
Outside, the improvements were placed on the land for the ultimate in privacy and land could easily be further cleared for more pasture.  Around the house and yard are pockets of bright perennials and a small amount of lawn, keeping yard work to a minimum. An above-ground pool is ready for summer fun.
*** No driveby's please as you have to enter the dooryard to see the house.***
The barn has housed everything from horses to hogs and the attached carriage bays protect the farm equipment from the weather.  Not into animals? Store all your toys here - room for classic cars, a boat and all-season outdoor sports gear. Sweet!
