Location

1.5 miles above lake on former 19th century sheep farm, on dirt road.

Privacy and quiet makes this an excellent location for writers and artists. Hiking right out the door with deer and turkeys for company.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Phyllis and Mitch are contented new arrivals to the Plymouth/Newfound area. Mitch Manseau is an inveterate hiker of many decades, retired Air Force officer and active in local town government. If your interest is hiking, you've got an experienced, trained AMC hike leader built in! Now he adds taming the fields with his Kubota tractor, and selectively cutting wood for the house's exterior wood boiler. Phyllis Rockwell processes wool and creates clothing from recycled fabrics, gardens, and sings with the internationally-touring NH Friendship Chorus.

Why the Owner Chose Newfound Lake:
Mitch and Phyllis were looking for acreage with or without a building attached for many months. When this property became available, Mitch's comment upon seeing the house was, 'Where's a match?' (Please ask to see the original photos.) Reason prevailed, and a 10 month redevelopment followed by a wonderful home occurred. The Coop was the last Big Project, which we think you'll grow to love also.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Unique benefits? Just look around! Be as active as you wish: you can partake in the busy life of the lake, or reconstitute your soul in the peace of the farm.
