Property Description

HILLSIDE- An exquisite Federal estate designed by renowned architect & landscape designer Charles Platt. Part of the Cornish Colony, Hillside was home to famed novelist Winston Churchill. The property is immediately appealing as you enter the front gates. The spaces are elegant and welcoming as you come around the circular driveway and take in the incredible grounds. The current owners have done significant updates to restore the whole property to an authentic but modernized state. The formal gardens are enchanting. Hillside sits with wonderful southern exposure and there are ample areas to gather inside and out. The interiors are comfortable and elegant. The whole house has been updated but keeping the stunning original woodwork, paneling, french doors, natural light and functional layout. There are 5 bedrooms in total, one of which is a grand master suite at the rear of the home taking in views of the gardens. The property has 17 acres and is a nice mix of open fields and woodlands. The charming barn has also been updated and could house animals once again. Hillside is just outside of Plainfield Village and near the Cornish Town line. It is centrally located to take in the best of the Dartmouth Lake Sunapee Region. Shopping is minutes away, and nearby the bustling college town of Hanover, and historic Woodstock, VT. This area is steeped in history, also minutes from Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site. Live the grand life you've always wanted.
