Details for 136 Main Street, Francestown NH 03043

Introducing The Betsy Searle Place! Listed in the New Hampshire State Register of Historic Places, this Federal-style brick-ender, although not unique in Francestown, is representative of a small group of buildings of this typology. Possessing integrity of location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, association, and feeling, the interiors of this historic home have evolved, minimally and strategically, over the years, creating a stylistic dialog between the past and present. The owners throughout the years paid homage to the original incarnation while allowing for the seamless incorporation of modern conveniences, finishes, personal design, and necessary enhancements. Although there are isolated 20th-century modifications in the ell section, the main dwelling has been untainted by alterations. Maintaining many original, refined details, from the wide-plank Tamarack Pine flooring, kitchen cabinetry, paneled doors, and wood-burning fireplaces, to the gabled roof, clapboard and brick exterior, and traditional red barn, The Betsy Searle Place is now yours to call home. Upon entering, the grand foyer, parlor/sitting room, living room, formal dining room, kitchen, and half-bath grace the first floor. Upstairs you will find four bedrooms and three bathrooms, including the primary bedroom with an ensuite bath. A beautifully designed, multi-level patio is perfectly located between the home and the barn, paving the way to the backyard and abutting forest. The barn is currently used as a storage space, but is positioned for conversion to a studio or office with access to the second-floor loft. This home remains true to its historical relevance and present-day stewards, bringing together the Federal-style with modernity to create a home equally inviting, comfortable, and evocative. Offered fully furnished at an escalated price. The house and barn sits on .40 acres. A non-contiguous, separate 3.00-acre lot is included in the sale.
