The Skinny: Built in 1901 by Boston banking heir E.W. Rollins, Three Rivers Farm is one of the finest, and best preserved, historic mansions to ever hit the market in New Hampshire. Originally set on more than 500 acres bounded by the Cochecho River, Salmons Falls River, and Fresh Creek, the estate was held in the Rollins family for almost 100 years, before being auctioned off in 1998. The subsequent owners have updated 10,000-square-foot brick Georgian "summer cottage," adding a modern kitchen and bathrooms, but have not disturbed the home's historic character, highlighted by "original Grueby tiles and Stickley fixtures." Today the Rollins mansion is offered for $7.9M, with just 42 of the original acres, but an additional 11 acres have been listed separately.
