Location: Plainfield, New Hampshire
City dwellers sometimes imagine that they have to head to the American west to find property with wide open spaces, but this affordable three-bedroom, three-bath home in New Hampshire proves them wrong. Set on a jaw-dropping 122 acres, the center chimney colonial was originally constructed in 1790 and has been meticulously renovated throughout.
The rooms are spacious and sunny, with multiple living and dining areas in the charming eat-in kitchen, casual sitting room, traditional library, and living room with a formal fireplace. The sleeping areas are conveniently located upstairs; three light-filled bedrooms feature original wooden beams and an extra bunk room and loft area help sleep a crowd.
Outside, a three-car garage stores all your gear and a barn provides a picture-perfect building for the rolling fields and trees. It all adds up to a remote retreat but you’re actually not far from civilization; Manchester—New Hampshire’s most populous city—is about one hour and 15 minutes away.
If a historic house on 122 acres sounds like your idea of heaven, 373 Stage Road is on the market now for $775,000.
