The Burleigh Farm
220 Burleigh Hill Rd, Sanbornton
Located in central New Hampshire, just five minutes from I-93 at Exit 22, "The Burleigh Farm" was once a two hundred acre farmstead that, over the years through the allocation of portions of land to family members, has been preserved on 29 acres. There are about two acres open for gardening and perhaps smaller livestock, and there is an option to purchase another 6 to 18 acres that abut the property that also offer open fields along the road.
The original 1822 colonial was moved from the roadside to sit further back on the land, and it was renovated down to the timberframe, the only evidence left of its historic past. From the bottom up, to include the foundation and chimneys, it was transformed into a quality and gorgeous four bedroom residence. Stepping inside, warmth and charm is immediately evident with gorgeous wood floors throughout the living areas, two fireplaces, lovely woodwork and detail, cottage-style windows and more. Everything is modern and resonates with the needs of today’s families.
Entering the side door, located in the ell between the house and garage, you will find a large mudroom with tiled floor and built-in cubbies and shelving for storing shoes and everyday paraphernalia. You can also conveniently access a three quarter bath from here. The mudroom leads to a spacious kitchen with granite counter tops, stainless appliances, ample workspace and plentiful cabinetry. A big island as well as a dining area makes sure there is always enough room for family and guests. Off the kitchen is the dining room and enclosed porch. These rooms have banks of windows that look out over fields and woodlands; the natural world is never more than a step away. A spacious living room with handsome fireplace and a charming sitting room with another fireplace flank the attractive center hallway, the more formal entry. Radiant heat plus a woodstove on the first level keep you warm after a crisp day outdoors, whether walking the dogs on your woodland trail or a day on the slopes. The pine floors throughout the house are in beautiful condition, complement the natural woodwork and add to the overall ambiance of the home.
Up the wide wooden staircase, the second floor houses four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Three of the bedrooms enjoy central air. All the bedrooms are good sized, and you’ll love the whimsical “owl” room, with its enchanting mural. The master suite, across the back, is subtly divided into two zones by a short wall to create a space for a desk or reading area.
The lower level of the house is finished with a large game room that currently houses a pool table and ping pong table, as well as a sitting area where you can relax and watch TV. This space is heated by an attractive propane stove and is perfect for a man cave. A bright and very functional laundry room has a huge folding counter and a utility sink. A separate finished room can be used for hobbies or as a quiet 'corner' office.
Above the 30' x 40' carriage barn-style three car garage is a large finished and heated space ready to become an in-law, superb home office for the porfessional, playroom, dance or yoga studio or whatever the need might be. Plumbing is already in place.
The land is lovely with mature plantings that mark the seasons with their individual contributions of color. To the side of the house are about two, open level acres that can be used for livestock or gardens. Conserved land across the road assures no houses will be built in the future.
The house is a country retreat that has been thoughtfully designed and built with quality construction. The natural beauty of wood and light make this a relaxing, beautiful home. For the commuter, quick access to I-93, one of the main arteries in NH, makes our capital city of Concord and Manchester-Boston Regional Airport easily accessible and downtown Nashua is just under an hour!
