Located in Epsom, New Hampshire, a small town a little over an hour north of Boston, this four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath house catches your eye from the road. The bright purple Victorian Painted Lady was constructed in 1890 by Charles Sumner Hall, a local businessman. When Hall purchased the property it came with an existing barn, and he added the house onto the barn to make a long and expansive front facade.

A renovation in 2010 added the home’s signature color with five different shades of purple. Inside, you’ll find tin ceilings on the first floor, restored wood floors, and several fireplaces. Each bedroom has its own ensuite bath, and the kitchen features a large island with light green accents.

The house most recently served as a residence with an attached Airbnb and boutique shop in the heated barn space, and the listing also sits on 3.78 acres. Interested? 1740 Dover Road is on the market now for $435,000.
