Beautiful executive four-bedroom home of 4,000 square feet on two levels, furnished with many antiques and oriental rugs. The main level includes a recently renovated gourmet kitchen with adjoining breakfast area that opens to a large two-level deck. The master bedroom suite on this floor includes a tiled bathroom and large dressing room with many closets. The large guest bedroom, also on this level, opens into its own private bathroom. The formal dining room and spacious living room both have picture windows looking out through the woods and golf course beyond, with a fireplace in the living room. The deck is ideal for meals or entertaining, peaceful with a nice view and visits by deer and birds. This entire level is flooded with natural light from the many windows. On the lower level are two additional bedrooms with another complete bathroom. On this level the game room includes a pool table and dart board, and the spacious family room, with its picture window and full bookshelves, is ideal for casual entertaining or relaxing. The house works well with kids downstairs, adults upstairs. The private 1.5 acre grounds are attractive and provide direct access to walking trails, cross-country skiing, and practice golf holes. This four-season location is great in winter (skiing, snowshoeing out the back door), spring (hiking, kayaking), summer (swimming, boating), and autumn (the fall foliage is famous) . The Ivy League member Dartmouth College is one mile away and provides a constant flow of sporting contests, cultural events and entertainment. Regular lawn work and snow plowing are provided. We are non smokers and do not permit smoking in the house.

Elegant, spacious, extremely clean home very convenient location to Dartmouth
Just had a great stay with our family for a 30th reunion. Lovely home and lovely owners!!! The best place we have ever stayed for reunion!!
Thank you. It was our pleasure.
So glad you had a good time.
Bob and Brigid's house is great for anyone wishing to visit picture perfect Hanover, NH, home of Dartmouth College. In our case it was for a Dartmouth reunion and we could not have asked for a better place to stay with our friends for the festivities on campus. The house is less than a mile from the heart of the campus an easy bike ride or walk. The house is on a private wooded lot that offers natural beauty and privacy and a great place for a barbecue. The inside is spacious with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. We had three couples one with two children which fit the layout perfectly. The interior is decorated beautifully with many reminders that you are at Dartmouth. I am looking forward to the next reunion and will keep my fingers crossed that Bob and Brigid will let us stay there again!
Warm, gracious, comfortable.
We had a wonderful stay over Dartmouth graduation weekend. This house was ideal for our family and a perfect location for the many events on campus. The back porch was lovely for morning coffee and we loved the trail behind the house for beautiful walks and jogs. Really an ideal setting for our last full weekend in Hanover as Dartmouth parents! Thank you to the very accomodating Murphys who made the experience special; from the welcome basket of goodies in the frig to the little touches throughout the house, we couldn’t have been more pleased.
Terrific House Walking Distance to Hanover
Terrific house within walking distance to downtown Hanover. The house is in a very quiet neighborhood and has spacious rooms. The owners are terrific and keep the house in great shape. We had a great time.
Perfect Home for a Family Gathering
We stayed at Bob and Brigid's home during a family wedding and had a wonderful stay. The house is large with several bathrooms and different places to relax so even though lots of people were staying at the house we didn't feel like were on top of each other at all.
The location is excellent - a quick drive to campus or 15 min walk. Bob and Brigid were extremely welcoming - checking in several times to make sure all was well at the house and sending positive vibes for sunshine on the wedding day. :)
We especially enjoyed the Dartmouth room downstairs - many of us are alums and it was so fun to see the memorabilia from Dartmouth's history.
We would happily stay here again for future Hanover events. Thank you so much to Bob and Brigid for sharing their home!
I took my entire family to Dartmouth Parents Weekend. Arrive at the house, punched in the garage code and drove right in. The house is immaculate and has everything you need including a great pool table, a very cute groundhog running around the yard and the piéce de résistance, a fabulous record collection. We were rocking out at 8am every morning. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Looking forward to returning to this well appointed home.
