This is definitely a dream property! Can you imagine owning this?! Whippoorwill Farm was built in 1780. It is located on 80 acres in Temple, New Hampshire. In 1958 the current owner wanted to protect the land and house for generations to come. They turned 70 acres into a sanctuary which is now called the Sargent Wildlife Sanctuary. The home has an attached barn for those cold New Hampshire winters. There are wide planked floors, exposed beams, wood walls and ceilings, and a hand carved staircase. The home has granite hearths, raised paneling and wainscoting. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,376 square feet. $325,000

From the Zillow listing:


Whippoorwill Farm is in search of its next steward. Could it be you? In 1958, the current owner fell in love with this c.1780 Antique Cape Farmhouse and surrounding forest and fields and sought to protect it for generations. As a result, this historic property includes the privately owned Sargent Wildlife Sanctuary where the natural environment remains untouched. The 70-acre sanctuary, with densely wooded areas, is alive with songbirds and is a safe haven habitat for wildlife. The Humane Society of Wildlife Land Trust has promised to protect the land in conservation forever. The home and attached barn are full of charm of yesteryear’s, however, they both are in need of care and repair and most likely require CASH buyer. Authentic period features are intact. The home is graced with wide plank flooring, exposed beamed ceilings, four fireplaces with either brick or granite hearths, gunstock corner posts, raised paneling, wainscoting and much more. The 80 acres is made up of three parcels – two of the parcels are in conservation and the third is the homestead that sits on 11-acres with open meadows (once used for grazing horses), apple trees, an old corn crib and views of Kidder Mountain and is excluded from conservation. It is an incredibly serene setting and a special property. The property is being sold “as-is” with the buyer responsible for all due diligence. Closing to occur after January 5th. Offers due by WED 10/28/20 @ 11:00am.
