Location: Alstead, New Hampshire
An opulent 1909 mansion is on the market in Alstead in southern New Hampshire. Built by hotelier and philanthropist Charles N. Vilas, the stately historic residence occupies over 62 acres of land, with the property comprising multiple outbuildings including a barn, stable, and a three-bedroom guesthouse.
The Colonial Revival home features eight bedrooms, nine bathrooms, grand formal rooms like the coffered dining and living rooms, and more, all characterized by gorgeous period architectural details like intricate molding and millwork, as well as marble accents all throughout.
Generously proportioned for entertaining and leisure, the estate calls to mind the halcyon days of balls and the like, which, who’s to say you can’t still throw? Located 30 minutes from Keene and about 45 minutes to Dartmouth, it’s offered at $1.35 million.
