Hanover house description

Located near the heart of the Dartmouth College campus, 26 Occom Ridge is Hanover's premier residential rental property. With nine bedrooms and over four acres of land overlooking Occom Pond, as well as 290 feet of frontage on the Connecticut River, this estate is situated on the largest privately owned parcel of land in the prestigious area surrounding Occom Pond.

A private driveway and a beautifully landscaped approach befits this impressive property with a local view to Dartmouth’s Baker Tower. Surrounding the residence is a rolling lawn with fieldstone walkways and stone walls, a privately sited and heated, in-ground pool and a gazebo. In the winter, enjoy the use of a beautifully maintained private skating rink on the property (see pictures!).


26 Occom Ridge presents an opportunity to enjoy an historic and well preserved home built on a grand scale. Expanded and slightly reconfigured over the years, this regal manor-like residence offers nine bedrooms, nine fireplaces and extensive communal space on the ground floor.

The large living room with a fireplace, the dining room, also with fireplace, the library/billiard room and the converted and enclosed four-season porch/mudroom with a large stone hearth fireplace are the main gathering areas on the first floor. An expansive covered porch faces Occom Pond and provides a commanding perch from which to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings year-round. An entry foyer with 14 foot ceilings, a mud room, an eat-in kitchen, breakfast room and a large study with a half bath complete the main level.

The second floor offers a large tv room/playroom, five bedrooms, one with attached sitting room and pull out couch, and three full bathrooms. The third floor offers four additional bedrooms and a full bath.
