Kingston, New Hampshire

$750,000 / Early American Colonial
Lynne Bartlett Merrill The Merrill Bartlett Group
A once in a lifetime find, this unspoiled, 1776, antique colonial in NH's sixth oldest town, has been maintained in near original condition by two families, the Peaslee/Bartlett family for the first 186 years and the Kalman family for sixty years. Historic details include wide pine plank floors, wall paneling, and wainscoting; mantle pieces, trim, cabinetry, and exposed brick. Once known as the Peaslee Tavern, this home has a ballroom with an original, continuous built-in plain wooden bench, where dances were held, militia was trained and circuit court sessions were convened, according to the Town of Kingston History Book. Opposite the double front doors, in a niche beside the stairway, is the sliding window from which ale was dispensed. This room has an open area under the staircase where the barrels and glasses sat. Seven fireplaces, five bedrooms, formal living and dining rooms, and a wide covered porch add to the charm of bygone days. Modern comforts include a nine year old boiler, newer roof, updated electrical, 2.5 baths. This home is waiting for the next owner to add updates while preserving history. The adjacent 100 acre parcel is also available for sale to the new owner.
