The timeless village of Walpole lies on the western boundary of New Hampshire, on the banks of the Connecticut River and where Louisa May Alcott penned her children's novel; Under the Lilacs. With it's verdant Village green, Sunday Band Concerts, period homes, gardens and squares, no wonder people are drawn to it's history, charm and elegance. Now take yourself back in time to the splendor of garden parties, music and a plenitude of space for family, friends, dinner guests and frolic. Holding much history in it's walls, this is one of the last grand ladies in the area awaiting your thoughtful and ardent restoration. Built in 1787, this twenty-six room sprawling mansion is in Greek Revival architecture. The circular driveway and four towering columns gracing the portico, welcome you to the home once known as Major J. Britton's Estate. The spacious entry invites you into the main stair case that leads to eight bedrooms, many with fireplaces. The library features a handsome fireplace and walls lined with shelves that once kept many old leather bound books in order. A Pair of leaded glass doors open into the Grand Ball Room that once entertained many evening parties throughout the years. Original woodwork can be found throughout the home. Balcony's overlook the lush gardens with views to the Vermont mountains. A one of a kind property in a very special part of the Monadnock Region.
