1830 Elijah Haven Homeplace
1830 Elijah Haven Homeplace is an exceptional and very private 36 acre gentleman's farm, beautifully situated at the end of a town-maintained private road in scenic Ashburnham, MA in the Heart of New England. The buildings and compound make the perfect primary or second home. This quintessential New England farmstead is also ideal as an equestrian property, retreat or eco/arts/conference center. It has been an income property with an established track record as well. In the rolling hills near prestigious Cushing Academy and Wachusett Mountain, the compound and grounds simultaneously impress and sooth with their unique and peaceful vibe, abundant nature, comfort, peace and easy city access. Boston is just over an hour away via highway. When Robert Frost penned prose about the natural beauty of New England, this haven may just have been his inspiration. The orientation of the fully-restored 19th century antique farm cottage with patio/deck; 700 sq. ft. post and beam converted barn with 14' ceilings; 800 sq. ft. post and beam carriage house/garage with loft; and post and beam auxiliary building capture the yesteryear warmth associated with Currier and Ives. The current owners from New York City lovingly restored the entire property over 2 decades, sensitively blending modern conveniences and landscaping with traditional elements. The carriage house/garage is set on a large lawn adjacent to a perennial wave garden. Nestled behind a knoll, in a small apple orchard near a stone wall and stream, there is also a 400 sq. ft. post and beam structure, originally used as a "luxe" coup for the owners' exotic chicken flock. For you, it could also be a secluded summer house or a sunny artist studio. Total indoor building area on the property exceeds 3,000 sq. feet. The grounds? Expansive and always blooming in season. The surrounding landscape offers a serene, park-like ambiance. Extensive lush lawns, tasteful and abundant gardens and ornamental plantings consort with ancient stone walls, stately sugar maples, oaks, birches, beeches and lush evergreens. A small stream traverses the property with a stone bridge. The owners have an approved pond plan in hand. It is picture-perfect for enjoyment as a tranquil individual, family or group retreat. (An additional 20 or 44 acres is also available, offering even more elbow room and adding abutting conservation land, providing perpetual protection and ensured access to thousands of acres of recreational possibilities plus hundreds of feet of road frontage.) This is a special, one-of-a-kind property. Haven Homeplace is idyllic, picturesque and definitely worth a "visualization tour" soon.
