Property of the Week: Chocorua classic with potential

Right in the center of picturesque Chocorua Village, you will find this 1860s home just waiting for your ideas. As you approach the house, located at 1499 Chocorua Road in Tamworth, you will enjoy its setting behind the split rail fence and post lanterns. This home, on the banks of the Chocorua River, has been utilized as an inn, as well as a family home.



There is a large living room with a fireplace, family-style kitchen, lovely dining room and an office/study in the main part of the house, all with many of the original features of the 1860s. The four large, sunny bedrooms are located on the second floor, some with views of the historic, wooden dam that was once the source of power for the old mill that fostered the village.

At the rear of the house is a large gathering room (22 by 30 feet) that is crying for use as a retail shop or cafe. This room has a woodstove and enjoys the view of the Chocorua Dam and Park across the river.

Other uses for this building are numerous, such as a combined office and residence, multiple office space with room for a shared receptionist, more than one living unit, hobby and craft shop, or whatever commercial or residential use you can image.

This is listed for $215,000 with Peg Huddleston at Lloyd and Day Real Estate, Inc. She can be reached at (603) 323-7803.
