Blackberry Hill Farm is a rare opportunity to own one of the most serene and bucolic landscapes in the Upper Valley. Located at the end of a mile-long country lane on 221+/- acres, the property encompasses both sides of the road. Lush meadows flanked by large oaks and stone walls surround a charming 5-bedroom gambrel home, a 3-bedroom gambrel guest cottage, a 32' x 42' post & beam party barn, an additional 20' x 30' post & beam barn, a detached 3-car garage, equipment shed and well house. With stunning views of Sunday Mountain and Mt. Cube to the east and long-range southerly views over Strawberry Hill to Holt's Ledge and Moose Mountain beyond, you do not see another house anywhere adding to its special quality. Approximately 40 acres over five contiguous fields are actively hayed by a local dairy farmer or used as pasture. A smaller sixth meadow planted in clover supports wildlife. The balance of the land is forest with an extensive trail network well suited for recreation and timber management. If you seek a rewarding land-based lifestyle surrounded by natural beauty with views and privacy, southern exposure, star-lit nights and day-long sunlight in every season, with a wonderful home, guest house and barns just 25 minutes from Hanover and Dartmouth College, this is a perfect opportunity.
