Property description

This is a special, magical, beautiful property, "Governor's Farm", with an antique Cape & large dairy barn, 2 parcels of land totaling 46.97 ac., of meadows, trees, gardens, forest, flowers, and 970'+/- accessible frontage on the Connecticut River, just 30-35 min. from the Upper Valley centers of Hanover-Dartmouth College, Lebanon-DartmouthHitchcockMedicalCenter, White River Jct.. The property consists of 2 parcels in one deed, on both sides of Rte. 5/Connecticut River Rd.--a 12.87 ac. parcel, which includes the house & barn, on the river side, and the second parcel, on the west side, a parcel of raw land, primarily forested, containing 34.1 ac. The property was once an operating dairy farm. It is spectacular, with extensive, usable, accessible frontage on the River, pastures, orchards, mature hardwoods, a Christmas tree grove, a stream entering the river, hiking trails, etc. The house has potential to be a beautiful antique Cape restoration, w/many original features intact. There is a 19x45 extension, probably once a shed or barn, partially finished, and could easily be incorporated into the year-round living space. The 36x84 dairy barn, built possibly in the '50's, provides additional potential. This would be a great property for grazing animals, a vacation home, small farm, B&B (w/4 bedrooms each having a dedicated bathroom), recreational usage, or any combination of uses. It is felt that there is subdivision potential, as well, on the riverfront parcel, a 5 ac. minimum district.
