Located on a knoll with 25+/ acres, this historic hill farm built by John Tenny in 1774, is one of the most cherished and iconic locations in all of Hanover. With commanding 75-mile views across, down and up the Connecticut River Valley, this 4-bedroom 2-bathroom post & beam cape with free-standing barn has been owned by the same family and used as their summer residence since 1959. Inside nothing is new or fancy and for most, year-round living will require substantial upgrades. But for those who seek a summer gateway; a historic restoration or ownership of one of the finest parcels in Hanover that is zoned rural residence and is not conserved, it doesn’t get any better. Features include: hand-hewn post & beam timber frames (main cape is 40’6” x 30’ with 24’6” x 22’5” wing), both 1.5 stories; 3 wood‐burning fireplaces; wide-pine floors; separate 30’6” x 25’6” post & beam barn with interior porch; a gently sloping meadow suitable for farming flanked by tall white pines; additional woodlands below with several interior and boundary-lined stone walls. All located near the base of Moose Mountain, steps away from a prolific trail network, including the Appalachian Trail and only 8 miles from Dartmouth College.
