211 Bible Hill Road | Francestown, New Hampshire real estate & homes

http;// - The grey fox stands for a moment in the middle of the lawn as if to say, "admire me!"
And he is indeed admirable and has chosen the property to our south as his home among
several abutting and conserved pieces of mostly open fields. Our six and one-half acres
seems so much larger.

Our Acorn style home sits on the top of the hill, with a long stately driveway that leads
to it. Newly painted inside, and with outside staining in process, the cathedral living
space and shiny countertops blend well into the openly designed kitchen. Huge windows
throughout the home let in plenty of sun and warmth. A cozy New England fireplace in
the living area makes a great place to snuggle up and read a book while surrounded by
nature... this is a property for lovers of the outdoors, for those that seek a quieter way
of living with nature's bounty all around and visible
from the home's inside and outside tranquility.

Our ownership of part of the old Francestown Soapstone quarry gives us a magnificent
place to swim from our dock in the refreshing, sixty to eighty foot deep spring fed clear
water! If you have not experienced swimming in a NH quarry then you are in for a treat!
From up above the quarry wall we enjoy summertime and the quarry splendor from
within the fully screened gazebo which is viewable from the house. In the seventeenth
and eighteenth centuries, this high-quality soapstone quarry was Francestown's raison
d'etre, until it was overtaken by natural springs in 1890. Two seasonal streams and three
interlocking pools empty into the quarry pond. These snake through granite walks and
stairs, woodlands and flower beds adorned with myrtle. Once a part of the still famous
Francestown walking garden tour, this property is easily within range of restoration to its
rightful place as one of the town's most precious garden properties! When in summer
drought, an in-ground irrigation system allows a draw from the quarry to fill the sculpted
hollows outlined by myrtle and granite stone!

The home has spaces arranged to good use with windows on the South and West sides
to take advantage of the sun, and a sun porch on the West side overlooking the gardens
and woods. The basement is nicely finished in part and offers walkout access over a
slate walksway to the large stone boulder with its old steel piling
still sticking out from yesteryear.

There is a master bedroom on the first floor with adjoining bath or on the second floor,
also with adjoining bath, depending on one's preference. The guest room is more than
ample. A two car garage is accessed directly from the undercover porch with sitting
swing and is attached to the house. Behind the garage is an attached woodshed with
cement floor. The roof is recent too!

Look at the Maple out of the dining room window, the blueberry bushes, the Rainier
Grape vines, the cherry, peach and plum trees...honeysuckle draws hummingbirds galore
in summer and the tall pine backdrop brings woodpeckers and owls of many varieties.
Deer, fox, moose and mink are some of the inhabitants of these woods.

Take a snowshoe walk around the property and see the tracks of that grey fox around the
back of the garage...take a hot bath in your tub and watch through the large window as
the snowflakes fall. The road is lightly travelled, but it is paved and town maintained and
that is good. Meet your human neighbors with their conserved fields of sheep and say
hi to them or greet them in the village store or at town meetings or community suppers.
This is it, this is Francestown, NH where everything good
in a small New England town can be yours for the seasons.

If your hoping to land on a side street, have walking distance to a park, pond, and public transit - make sure to schedule your appointment today!

The beauty of the Columbine neighborhood is having Turner's Pond which is the perfect spot for feeding the ducks. The neighbors love the walkability to Pierce Middle School, Glover Elementary school and Milton Academy. And of course, having the Blue Hill Reservation in Milton, the highest point in Norfolk County, afford all kinds of hiking, skiing and recreational activities.

One of our favorite features though is Milton Village with a coffee shop, bakery, wine and cheese shop, dry cleaners, a good old fashioned barber shop, and Tino's famous pizza. A seasonal farmer's market is the perfect spot to pickup that fresh, local produce.

Not to mention one of Milton's trolley stops and the Neponset River bike bath - all just down the street from this Columbine classic.

142 East Emerson | Melrose, Massachusetts Victorian real estate - Sometimes two forces meet and the outcome is pure perfection. This property, which garnered a lot of attention in its state of disrepair in 2001, met the current owners and the result has birthed an architectural experience and one of the finest restorations Metro Boston has ever known.

Its late 19th Century elegance was completely renewed but more importantly, the current owners created the ideal, high-end kitchen and baths for living in the 21st Century while being mindful of the architectural history. This home carries a mystique and amazing attraction to those who discover it.

Named for the dripping details of the columns, porches, balustrade and moldings that decorate the exterior like frosting, the "Wedding Cake House" has a sister in Kennebunk, Maine, which is considered one of the most photographed homes in the country, but the locals know that our Wedding Cake House is, well, more sensuous, though perhaps less renowned.

To say that the exterior curb appeal is exquisite feels like an understatement, but it is important to note that the owners stress that this is a very livable house. Truly no expense has been spared in the complete restoration of this Neoclassical Revival. We should note that there is over 5000 sq/ft of living space -- 4 floors, 14 rooms, 5--‐6 bedrooms, 7 Fireplaces, a 3 car garage, 4 full and 1 half baths on a nearly 3/4 acre lot.

It goes without saying that all of the systems and updates have been done, but the devil is in the details, from the refinishing of all of the original brass hardware and fixtures to the careful restoration of both murals and the exquisite woodwork.

When you walk through the vestibule into the grand entrance there is a dessert buffet of panoramic views from the ornate, gold leaf--‐touched music room, to the impressive foyer with it's hand-- painting and opulent details, to the multi--‐level staircase with two Juliet balconies, to the living room decked out in all natural woodwork of American Chestnut.

Every nuance and fixture has been carefully selected and finish work dresses every corner.

The study with the fox hunt murals transports visitors to the English country side.

In fact, every room in this stately home has its own story and experience. The current owners are ardent cooks, and the kitchen reflects their talents with Wolf, Sub--‐Zero and Bosch appliances paired with custom cabinetry, granite and moldings that are appropriate for this inviting space.

Wine connoisseurs will love not only the Sub--‐Zero wine chiller in the kitchen that properly stores red and white wines at separate temperatures but the dedicated wine cellar on the lower level with temperature and humidity control.

This home has been featured in various media outlets from television programs like Chronicle, to print media in Boston Magazine, Boston Globe and local papers. Noise has been made that it would be an ideal Governor's Mansion, as the perfect entertaining home, close to Boston. Why the Governor could walk to the train from this pristine East Side Country Club neighborhood.

Melrose is the second smallest city in the Commonwealth after Newburyport. It's a secret gem, a walkable city with many neighborhoods near great public transportation (3 train stops with 13-15 minutes commutes to North Station) and also boasts proximity to major highways, yet allows children to walk to their ballet classes, ball games, library and activities. With the walking trails of the Fells Reservation, private and public golf courses, and the amazing programs, sports and daycare of our YMCA, there is much to offer people of all ages. Okay, maybe not as rural as Mayberry, but the wonderful community events and emphasis on schools really bonds those of us lucky enough to call Melrose our hometown. There is a lot going on here in Melrose; from the annual Arts Festival showcasing local fine arts talent, to the Melrose Community Symphony Orchestra led by Keith Lockhart's back up conductor and a beloved figure in Melrose, Melrose offers a vibrant downtown of trendy restaurants and values educating our children. You can't beat the combination of architectural significance, community warmth and compelling real estate value.

The town center is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and Hollis boasts one of the top school systems in the state of New Hampshire and has some of the highest SAT scores in the entire country.
