About New Hampshire


New Hampshire

New Hampshire is in the New England region and borders Canada. The state was named after the southern English county of Hampshire. New Hampshire ranks 44th in land area, 46th in total area of the 50 states, and 42nd in population.

It became the first post-colonial sovereign nation in the Americas when it broke off from Great Britain in January 1776, and was one of the original thirteen states that founded the United States of America six months later. In June 1788, it became the ninth state to ratify the United States Constitution, bringing that document into effect. New Hampshire was the first U.S. state to have its own state constitution.
It is known internationally for the New Hampshire primary, the first primary in the U.S. presidential election cycle. It has no general sales tax, nor is personal income (other than interest and dividends) taxed at either the state or local level.
Its license plates carry the state motto: "Live Free or Die". The state's nickname, "The Granite State", refers to its geology and its tradition of self-sufficiency.
New Hampshire's major recreational attractions include skiing, snowmobiling and other winter sports, hiking and mountaineering, observing the fall foliage, summer cottages along many lakes and the seacoast. The White Mountain National Forest links the Vermont and Maine portions of the Appalachian Trail.

New Hampshire has approximately 24,000 horses.

Antique Farmhouse in Horse Friendly Temple NH

Temple, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire

This iconic antique Colonial Farmhouse sits just on the edge of the bucolic village of Temple. With four bedrooms and 3.5 baths, the utmost care has been taken to address every detail -- when antique features were missing, the owners sought them out and installed them. The kitchen has been updated but maintains all kinds of charm, from the huge double apron sink to the custom cabinetry with granite countertops and more than ample storage. The floors are wood, the dining area can hold a large table, and two sitting rooms on the front of the house allow for casual and formal living. There are four bedrooms upstairs including the spacious master with a newly renovated bath which includes a claw foot soaking tub and a shower, plus four closets, one of which is a walk-in cedar closet. The other three bedrooms share two more full baths. The laundry is on the second floor as well, but there is also laundry in the basement for "horse laundry." The wraparound porch and deck, plus two stories of screened porches and a patio also allow for all kinds of outdoor living space! Currently a horse property, the attached post-and-beam barn has multiple stalls with a hay loft above and more stalls below, and room to park a vehicle or two if you see fit. There is fenced pasture, plus a run-in, and an invisible dog fence. You'll love the mudroom between the barn and the house with a full sink and more storage than you could ever want!

Sunninghill Farm, an Historic Equestrian Estate in Southern New Hampshire

Lyndeborough, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire

MAKE A REASONABLE OFFER!!! TWO HOMES & CARETAKER'S COTTAGE. Located in the rural community of Lyndeborough, just a quick drive to southern New Hampshire’s east-west Route 101, Sunninghill Farm is an oasis in a hectic world. An equestrian and family compound surrounds the original 1764 saltbox colonial homestead that its 18th century builders expertly perched on a high point of the land. Not only was maximum solar gain necessary for warmth, the long, wide and distant views served to a means to monitor surrounding activities. Everything had a purpose then as it does now. The farm was rediscovered, brought back to vibrant life and recreated where needed by its present owner. Reminiscent of Sturbridge Village, a genuine passion for New England’s early architecture is evident everywhere yet every necessity we demand is found here, generally going completely unnoticed. From the ground up, both historic and replicated buildings sit on concrete foundations with stone facing added, designed to hide this modern and critical structural upgrade. Mechanical and electrical systems to include a standby generator, and water and septic systems are all under 10 years old. The same quality details follow through to the attached barns and impressive 100’ x 200’ indoor arena. ​The location of the farm, in sought-after southern New Hampshire, makes it an easy drive from Boston (1.5 hrs), Hartford (2.25 hrs) and a 4 hour excursion from NYC. Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is a 45 minute drive.
