This beautiful estate property sits atop Packard Hill with stunning views to Mt Monadnock that could be re-established. The 1750 Salt Box home, reported to be the oldest in Ashburnham, is the antique centerpiece of this quiet New England retreat. It has 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, wide pine floors, five fireplaces, and a uniquely open dining and living room configuration for a home of its era. The estate is 39 acres and also has a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, caretaker’s Cape style house located near the main home. In addition, there is an 850 square foot, 1 bedroom, 1 bath three-season cabin with a screened in porch located in the interior of the property. The property is permanently protected, with 3 building envelopes established in which the buildings can be renovated or entirely recreated. Additional outbuildings for farming or equestrian uses can be created. Much of the directly adjacent acreage is also protected, insuring the entire landscape will remain largely intact.
