NH’s Most Expensive Listing Is a 58-Acre Estate

Located in New Hampshire, 4 Dancer’s Image Lane is comprised of five individual properties located between Atlantic Avenue, Little River, and the Little River Salt Marsh. Surrounded by pastoral grounds, the property takes advantage of its extraordinary location, which provides ocean views, river and marsh frontage, and extensive conservation land. The rambling property bestows equestrian, agricultural, farm, aquatic, and rural opportunities while providing private jet access just 20 minutes away and easy access to Boston.

The 7,551 square foot family residence is a modern interpretation of the classic New England coastal home. There is a 3.69-acre-lot around it, offering more privacy, and securing the nature of the entire property. There are antique limestone floor tiles in the open concept kitchen/family room and adjacent four-season sunroom. The warm sunroom anchored by a floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace offers nearly 360º views of the property. The sunroom houses an outdoor kitchen with a built-in grill, sink, and refrigeration.

The kitchen’s European style with multiple finishes and countertop materials gives it a timeless look. The kitchen opens to a large family area which includes two seating areas and an informal dining space overlooking the adjacent marshes. Additional “furniture” pieces mirror antiques while housing modern appliances. Going down a winding stone stair is a lower-level wine cellar with available space for storage.

The first floor includes a formal dining room with a limestone fireplace, a butler’s pantry with mahogany cabinetry and marble countertops, a music room, two offices, a large laundry room, and two baths. There is a centrally located elevator to access all floors. The master suite includes floor-to-ceiling windows, a luxurious bathroom, and a shower with a vintage tub. It features two custom-built closets with abundant storage. Behind the fireplace, a private staircase leads to a loft sitting area and a small hallway connecting it to the upstairs bedrooms.

A curved and paneled main staircase leads to the second and third floor that feature two en-suite bedrooms; one with a workplace, and a third guest room near a hallway bath with tub and shower. Also on this floor is an exercise room, complete with a sauna. The third floor showcases an entertainment/media room with a kitchenette and offers astounding views of the Atlantic Ocean.

 

CARRIAGE HOUSE AND GUEST HOUSE

A smaller shingle-style house shares the driveway with the main house. Inside, it offers a kitchen and sitting area, a bath, and, through a French door entrance, a warm and spacious bedroom. There is a 2+ car garage at the lower level with a separate entrance to the guest house.

The 2,609 square foot, 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom New England-style guest home has been upgraded and well maintained. Behind it, there is a 6,120 square foot storage building offering substantial space for antique cars or other special collections, landscape equipment, and other storage.

SHEEP BARN AND RUNNYMEDE FARM

There are two parcels of conservation land intended to preserve the natural habitat of this salt marsh area. Along a footpath, there is a sheep barn. It has a new foundation, a new septic system servicing its half bath and sheep pens, and a new metal roof. Approximately 9 acres of this property include electrified fencing for livestock grazing.

The 4080 square-foot Runnymede Farm and 3000 sq. ft. caretaker residence include expansive pens, a riding/jumping arena, and other high-end equestrian amenities. The barn comprises 12 stalls, a central hay drop, a bathing bay, a heated tack room, office, kitchen, and two 1/2 baths. There is an outdoor kitchen and fire pit. Additionally, infrastructure upgrades provide for a potential indoor riding ring or a potential estate lot.
