Upton Pond a 1,318+/- acre property in southwestern New Hampshire has been assembled over 50 years and carefully managed by the same family as a private retreat. The centerpiece of the property is the 9.8 acre pond, a clear, clean, spring fed body of water approximately 8 to 12 feet deep and excellent for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and ice skating.
The main house was built in 1989 overlooking the pond, using only the finest materials including mahogany and teak windows, mahogany interior trim and a cedar clad exterior. This residence has been thoughtfully designed and oriented to allow for minimal maintenance, ease of use, maximum solar exposure, and water and mountain views. The home has approximately 4,100 square feet of living space consisting of 9 rooms with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.
Additional structures include a post and beam barn originally built in 1776, with improvements and restoration in 1968, currently used for equipment and tool storage but could easily be modified for horses. A charming pond-side cabin, seasonal with 8’ porch, includes a large fieldstone fireplace, separate woodstove, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, and loft. A seasonal A-frame sits on a point of land on the opposite side of the pond. At the entrance to the property is a two-car garage as well as a large, two-story structure containing an additional 2-car garage as well as 3 apartments ideal for a caretaker or guests.
Of the 1,318.70 acres 906.50 acres are conserved and located primarily in the central and southern portion of the property. Within the conserved land there are three 5 acre building envelopes. The non-conserved lands total 412.20 and located primarily in the northern portion of the property. There is a Forestry Management Plan in place. There is also an extensive system of trails for hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, or equestrian pursuits.
