Our Time Here... And Passing On This Torcb
In 2011, my family and I stumbled upon this property by happenstance... 84 Nelson Hill Road South, abandoned for more than seven years, was breathtakingly beautiful as it stood regally amidst the field at the crest of the hill. Like a quiet queen in a long slumber... waiting to be wakened. I love architecture and the details of fine craftsmanship which provide such character to a home. Everything about this place was magical... its charm and understated elegance a nod to another era.
And the porches... oh how every house needs a front porch, yes? From there we could sit on Adirondack chairs and watch kids and dogs frolic, or enjoy drinks with neighbors who would become dear friends; we could breathe in the golden sun set over the mountains on the western horizon; listen for thunderstorms rolling in from the sleeping porch out back, and close our eyes to the sound of crickets singing to the night stars. Birds and dragonflies and wildlife was everywhere... and this all has been nothing less than entirely enchanting. For us, and the family, friends, neighbors and community we've been fortunate enough to share it with.
We collaborated with fine craftsmen who continued the story we felt was important to honor. A crumbling chimney rebuilt, walls taken down to update the electrical and heating systems, moldings labeled, removed, painted
and returned, a kitchen renovated to capitalize on the views, and to resonate with the style of the house... complete with soapstone countertops to match the large original sink in the basement. We added a breezeway and barn, designed by renowned New Hampshire landscape architect, George Matarazzo. And stonewalls and a walkway. We planted hydrangeas and hostas and berry bushes. And sunflowers. The dandelions that opened as the sun crossed the lawn added to the charm of this place. Everything seemed to come to life here... an invitation to the joy of nature and gratitude itself.
We worked to reclaim fields that had become overgrown, and had the chance to raise chickens of various breeds. We sped down sledding hills, grown ups and kids alike laughing hysterically, and we snowshoed on the endless trails with our dogs, leash-less and running free. We trekked and mountain biked and snowmobiled from our driveway... an endless network of trails reaching out from this property and far beyond.
We shared dinner with neighbors, and watched fireflies light up the fields in July. We cozied in as we watched snow fall and blanket the trees and earth outside, sipped hot cocoa with heaping mounds of whipped cream, enjoyed the warmth of fireplaces, and reveled in the coziness of this place. If there is a heaven on
earth, surely it existed right here. We marveled at our good fortune to live in a place that had become so much more than the Sutton Victorian on the hill... this place that had gathered us and others to it became... "home."
Children and families grow, time moves forward, seasons change.
It is in this place that we welcome you here to explore and discover... for some, this transition might be a transaction. I would prefer to think of it more as a transformation... This is a special place we hope to pass on to those who will enjoy it as we have. The gift of home and land to care for and cherish, to celebrate experiences and memories and times with... and to continue on the story of this place in the ways that call most to you, honoring the torch carried by each one of us before.
Come visit.... explore... discover.
This place welcomes you, and so do we.
