My Notes

Historic Cornish Colony former home of landscape architect, Ellen Biddle Shipman and playwright Louis Shipman. Original cape style section built in 1790 and later addition designed with Charles Platt influence in the early 1900's. This elegant country home boasts newly updated kitchen with high end appliances including six burner propane stove, warming oven and built in custom propane fireplace . Six fireplaces in the main house. Some molding and mantels thought to be hand carved by original owner, Charles Gilkey, master carver. Formal perennial statue garden perfect for summer evenings listening to the gentle running water from cement coy pond visible from outdoor brick patio. Also has a 1,200 sq.ft. Carriage house rented for $700 / month for the past 16 years. Trout brook runs through the back yard. This home has many additional features including "secret room," Maxfield Parrish window latches, locally salvaged woodworking, interesting history and much much more.
Great lay-out for entertaining inside and out.
Also has a large 3,400 sq.ft. basement with 3 ground level doors to the outside and two interior stairs to the first floor.
Invisible dog fence covers entire 6 acres of property.
Excellent school system and community! Close to Kimball Union Academy.

What I love about the home

Very unique former estate of Ellen and Louis Shipman and part of the Cornish Art Colony. Elegant country living close to excellent schools, Dartmouth College and Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, skiing, kayaking and many cultural opportunities. This home offers it all! We have loved it over the last 17 years and would be thrilled to have a new owner who appreciates all this special property has to offer.

Market guide

Zillow predicts New Hampshire home values will increase 2.2% next year. Among 03781 homes, this home is valued 132.9% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 12% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 03781, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 11.9% greater than in Plainfield, and 39.4% lower than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 03781 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Plainfield.
