Details for 86 Walker Brook Road, Danbury NH 03230

Hope Farm in Danbury 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 proudly 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 sizeable year-round brooks. The clapboard and brick house of approximately 4,600 square feet includes 10 fireplaces, 5 bedrooms, including a master with ensuite bath and dressing room. 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 the 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. Located half way between Concord and Hanover and 15 minutes to New London, 30 minutes to Mt. Sunapee Ski Resort.
