An amazing horse property -- and fabulous home

Open house today, Oct. 28, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

Picturesque, peaceful and practical, the handsome Arts & Crafts home set on 20 acres at the end of a cul-de-sac neighborhood in a rural corner of Hampton Falls is also an amazing horse property complete with three paddocks, working barn, breathtaking vistas of vibrant woodlands and even a boat dock on Grapevine Run.

Custom built only eight years ago in the executive neighborhood, the beautiful home was designed to blend effortlessly into its natural surroundings and to provide the homeowners magnificent views of the paddocks, woodlands and acres and acres of conservation land abutting the property.

Lovely landscaping including tulip trees, flowering shrubs, granite steps, paved walkways and perennials enhance the attractive visual charm of the home and complement the natural beauty of the surrounding woodlands.

The home has exquisite details with a welcoming mahogany farmer’s porch, splendid array of custom designed arched windows, a three-bay garage featuring arched doors with specially-designed windows that repeat the custom Arts & Crafts window theme.

For horse lovers a beautiful and thoughtfully designed two-story, three-stall barn is a real pleasure.

The large barn has been designed so that the homeowner does not have to go outside to reach the barn in wet weather, with plenty of tack storage within easy access, a very efficient feed storage area and loft attached to the garage.

This highly efficient space is in impeccable condition, ready for new occupants.

Stepping inside the home is a visually spectacular experience.

The soaring two-and-a-half story great room has a wall of distinctive windows that frame a panoramic view of the paddocks and peaceful woodlands in splendid colors of red, orange and gold.

While the great room is a soaring space it is well balanced with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, an open bridge connecting the upstairs bedrooms and the warmth of the honey-toned natural woodwork and hardwood floors.
