Location: Greenland, New Hampshire
The Thomas Ayres Homestead is a circa-1737 property in Greenland, New Hampshire, that has been well-maintained and updated for modern living, with many original details and outbuildings.
The 3,336-square-foot two-story residence boasts four huge bedrooms, three baths, formal living and dining rooms, a spacious country kitchen, sun room, and more, all imbued with historic architectural elements like exposed beams, wide-plank hardwood floors, gunstock corners, seven wood-burning fireplaces, millwork, and built-in storage.
In addition to the main house, the 2.35-acre lot comprises many opportunities for expanded living: a 980-square-foot, two-bedroom carriage house; 1,100-square-foot lofted ice house; and a massive three-story “Yankee” barn. Not to mention the verdant grounds.
And, according to the listing, legend has it that Paul Revere made a pit stop here on his way to Portsmouth. Located at 47 Park Avenue, it’s offered at just under $700,000. Have a look.
