Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: My husband was born and raised in Keene and I have lived here for 24 years. Our blended family consists of six children and two grandchildren. We now winter in Florida and our son manages the property during that time. We spend the summer months either here at our home or visiting family. We decided we wanted to share the beauty and tranquility our home and property have to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Keene, NY, USA:
Although we lived in Keene, we spent many weekends on this property at our 'camp' that we built on it in 1998. The more time we spent up here the more we didn't want to leave. We built our new home on the property adjacent to our 'camp' so we could enjoy the beauty and privacy this property offers. The camp became our guest cottage for family and friends, which is now being shared for your enjoyment, (as a separate rental unit). We have spent a lot of time improving the property around our home and take great pride in all we've done. We love everything about our home and the property. We have built several raised bed gardens and enjoy spending the time growing the many vegetables and fruits we love when we are home during the summer months.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy our 52+ acres that surround the property. A breathtaking panoramic view of the high peaks overlooking the valley south towards Giant, Noonmark and Dix Mtns. Certainly one of the best views in town!
