Owner info

Year Purchased: 1957

About the owner: The house has been in the Freeland Family for almost 60 years. Now the three sisters (Joan, Susan, & Carole) own it and provide loving care.

Why the Owner Chose Easton, NH, USA:
The house is charming both inside and out. Built during the Civil War, the original house was tiny. Over the years other rooms were added including a second floor bathroom. A barn and picket fence were added then later removed.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The front porch has an uninterrupted, sweeping mountain view. The area is peaceful and abounds with birds and wildlife. The home remains a quiet, comfortable get-away for those who want to relax. The nights are dark and, on a clear night, the sky is flooded with stars and you can see the Milky Way!
