Listed by Kristin Claire of LandVest, Inc./New Hampshire

Hope Farm has a rich history, spectacular views of Mt. Kearsarge, and is surrounded by over 5,000 acres of protected land. The Federal-period house sits on the north side of Walker Brook Rd. on 108 acres, with roughly 68 acres of mature woodlands behind the house and 40 acres across the road with fields, a pond, and frontage on two year-round brooks. The clapboard and brick 4,600-square-foot house includes 10 fireplaces, 5 bedrooms, including a first- floor master suite. There is a large renovated kitchen with center island, dining and sitting areas, an inviting library with custom cherry shelving, living room, dining room with butler's pantry, large great room for entertaining and gathering, 1 -2 offices, and another large room above the two-bay attached garage. The Hope family purchased the farm in the 1950s and devoted decades to the care and restoration of the building, including replacing the many fireplaces with modern tile-line chimneys and adding the kitchen, garage, and great room. A master carpenter created the many striking wooden built-ins and extensive trim work, including paneling, mantles, and carvings. In addition to installing thermopane windows, redesigning the kitchen, and updating the utility systems, the current owners have reinvigorated the farm with several large gardens, dozens of fruit trees, and the introduction of Hereford cattle, Romney sheep, and NH Red chickens. Close to New London, Mt. Sunapee Resort and half-way between Concord & Hanover.
