A classic New England farm featuring an 1894 colonial home, a two-story barn and other outbuildings sitting at the foot of Towne Hill, a prominent knoll with four fields surrounded by over 200 acres of conserved forest. The location is waiting for the next stewards seeking the outdoor, farming lifestyle in a scenic country setting.
Fairmont Farm & Forest in Rindge, New Hampshire sits on a prominent knoll amid a rolling landscape of forests, fields, small lakes and villages that characterize this area known as the Monadnock Region.
The house is an 1894 Colonial that has been modified during the current ownership (since 1968) to include a two-story addition on the west side; an office/study on the east side; and a two-story greenhouse was added to the front of the house. A deck and a screen porch were also added to the north side facing the fields. These additions have enhanced the living space while still being compatible with the historic charm of an antique home.
The 15-room house has approximately 4,767 ft2 of living space including 5 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and 1 half bathroom.
The parcel has approximately 1,760 of frontage on Thomas Road, a paved, town-maintained road with utilities that commences off Route 202 just a few miles to the east.
With the exception of a 15-acre "exclusion area" around the house, barn and outbuildings, the remaining acreage is under a conservation easement with the Monadnock Conservancy.
The property is less than two miles from the Massachusetts border; about 75 miles from Boston, MA; 48 miles from Manchester, NH and 92 miles from Hartford, CT. Locally, the property is only 21 miles from Keene and 12 miles from Peterborough, with a small but eclectic downtown of shops and eateries.
