We are blessed to have many antique homes here in New England. They capture a stillness that existed once long ago and give you a sense of stepping back in time.
It looked to have an original cape with an ell off the back, which was common with the old farmhouses. A traditional stone wall with granite posts frame the entrance into the property.
The barn fits the plot perfectly with its large sliding doors, crowning cupola and cobblestone driveway.
This beauty was just past the first farm. It is currently listed for sale here. It is known as the 'Farley Garrison House - Circa 1665'. According to the listing, the house came from Billerica, Massachusetts and was carefully dismantled and reconstructed on this parcel of land in New Hampshire.
Several other buildings were also moved and rebuilt on the property including this pole barn and corn crib.
The traditional saltbox home is surrounded by rock walls and fields a plenty. The large center chimney was a common feature in these old homes.
The back yard touts another special piece of architecture.
As if the home, barn and water tower weren't enough, they also rebuilt a one room schoolhouse from the 1700's on the parcel.
While the buildings on both these properties are not original to the land, there reconstruction was done so meticulously that you would never know that to be the case. They have become part of the land they stand on - solidly built with a rich history and a story to tell for future generations.
