For only the second time in over 70 years, one of the most iconic estates in Northern New England is coming on the market. The Hinckley House (1822) is one of the seven Ridge Homes gracing the center of the town of Orford, New Hampshire. The estate has approximately 2.7 acres of land and has expansive front and back lawns. The front lawn has a magnificent lone pine. The home has been extensively renovated by the current owners, while maintaining the architectural integrity of the home. The two formal second floor front bedrooms of the mansion are adorned with original American Folk Art from the early Federal Period. Rufus Porter and his nephew Jonathan Poor painted folk art murals on all four walls of both the North and South bedrooms. The house has spaces both formal and informal, with five+ bedrooms, four bathrooms, gracious living and dining rooms, original moldings and high ceilings. The stunning spiral staircase that graces the front entry harkens to a time of elegance and a slower pace of life. In the 1890s the first floor of the barn was converted to a dance hall with a stunning old growth fir wood floor. The current owners have converted this beautiful space to a game room with a pool table and bar. Whether as a primary or secondary residence, or an amazing bed and breakfast or inn, the Hinckley House is a truly amazing offering in the town of Orford, New Hampshire, just 20 minutes from downtown Hanover, New Hampshire, and Dartmouth College.
