An Historic Hanover Estate

There is no doubt that Hanover, New Hampshire is a wonderful place to live, sited amidst the incredible natural beauty of the Upper Connecticut River Valley, and affording easy access to myriad recreational and cultural opportunities, all within minutes of a world-class medical center. 26 Occom Ridge is arguably Hanover's most unique historic residence, and very rarely do such extraordinary properties come on the market.

The house is located in the northwest corner of Hanover's downtown residential district in an enclave of other fine properties. With over four acres of land, this property is the largest parcel in prestigious Occom Ridge.

26 Occom Ridge presents an opportunity to enjoy an historic and well preserved home built on a grand scale. Expanded and slightly reconfigured over the years, this fine residence offers nine bedrooms, nine fireplaces and extensive communal space on the ground floor.

The large formal living room is well suited to entertaining and has a beautifully carved mantelpiece surrounding the fireplace.

Adjacent to the living room is a converted and enclosed four-season porch with a large stone hearth fireplace. An expansive covered porch faces Occom Pond and provides a commanding perch from which to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings year-round.

The elegant dining room, while capable of  hosting large gatherings, feels intimate enough for a small group.

The wood-panelled study offers a quiet retreat.

In the center of the house is a bright and spacious foyer with a soaring ceiling.

The second floor offers four bedrooms, two with attached sitting rooms. The third floor offers four additional bedrooms and a full bath.

A private driveway and a beautifully landscaped approach befits this impressive property. Surrounding the residence is a rolling lawn with fieldstone walkways and stone walls, a privately sited and heated, in-ground pool and a gazebo. A large and lovely, uninterrupted expanse of land reaches from the residence to the approximately 290 feet of direct frontage on the Connecticut River. The property also includes a detached, four-car garage.

This is a truly a glorious setting crowned with an exceptional residence. For more information contact Rick Higgerson by email. Additional photographs and details here.
