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.

Reproduction Farmhouse in private country garden setting.

Mont Vernon, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire

Second Wind Farm, built in 1993 in South Mont Vernon, NH is rural in character, yet only 30 minutes to Nashua and Manchester. Only a 5 minute drive to the Milford Oval, and the Souhegan Valley's cultural hub. A small brook divides the 6.4 acres of mostly pasture and thinned forest, finishing in a small pond along a stone wall marking the east boundary. From the 14' x 40' finished basement you walk out through two 9 ' triple sliders to the wide open spaces of the level back yard. The only sign of another home is the top of a chimney 1500 feet away. The view and privacy from the redwood hot tub on the large mahogany deck is astounding. You're surrounded by breathtaking gardens and nature. The 30 x 38 4 car HEATED garage is extra wide and deep with stairs leading to a 750SqFt office with heat and central AC. Storage for up to 350 bales of hay occupies another 33% of the second floor space with a trap door hay chute to the barn aisle below. A Large deck off the back of the hay loft makes loading deliveries a smooth process. Off the Garage is a 30 x 20 shed roof addition with a 10 x 30 aisle with cross-ties and a feed area. Three 10 x 10 stalls can be closed off, but are currently set up as turn outs to a large sacrifice area that is tastefully hidden from the stately front façade of this country colonial reproduction. The custom built and finished open floor plan home has a wood burning fireplace that can be enjoyed from any seat in the Kitchen, Dining, or Living room spaces. An office with a built-in bookcase or an intimate formal dining room, a large laundry room, mud room, and 1/2 bath finish off the first floor. Off the dining area, French Sliders lead to a 10 x 16 screen porch with an ample deck off of that for grilling. With 4 bedrooms and two baths on the second floor - this home was built for expansion - yet not so big that two people would feel lost. We love the 14 x 40 finished basement with a 3/4 bath for sleep-overs. The billiard table, exercise area, big screen TV, and Bar next to the corner brick wall/hearth with a Vermont Castings Wood stove make for a decent man cave as well. Storage space is amazing with a 17 x 40 plywood surfaced attic-truss 3rd floor. When you aren't cultivating early spring veggies or extending the growing season in the fall, there's plenty of room for winter storage of lawn furniture and toys in the 16 x 36 Ft green house. A consistent comment from many who have a chance to sit and enjoy the flow of the floor plan and how the space naturally works - whether on the screen porch enjoying the fragrances and nature, warming by the fire pit in the garden, just reading a book in front of the fireplace, or hovering with guests in the open kitchen area, is ?your home is really comfortable?. We know. We designed it that way. Not to impress with fancy finishes, but to sooth the senses and the soul. Seller Statement is available upon request.
