This historical 1892 renovated home located at 49 Neighbors Row in North Conway is nestled on a quiet, dead end road with access to Whitaker Woods.
The property offers three levels of living space soaring over 40 feet with custom features, including a floor to ceiling expansive library; beautiful mezzanine with a wood burning fireplace; wrap around porch; outdoor kitchen/screen house with deck; and five bedrooms with a master en suite with a stone bath and radiant heat in the floor
The first floor is open bringing together dining, living, library and mezzanine areas. French doors from the dining area and library invite you to relax on the wrap around porch.
There's a 10 foot-by-14-foot tool shed and a two-car garage with storage above.
You could create a second master en suite on the opposite wing that already has its own private staircase. Warm hardwood floors, three fireplaces, and an upscale man-cave that showcases the home's turret and skillful build are found as you explore.
Across the yard is access to Whitaker Woods with trails to the school, Stonehurst Manor, Memorial Hospital and North Conway Village. Those same trails become a network of groomed cross-country skiing trails in winter. All this on a town-maintained road with only four other homes on the street and town water and sewer.
49 Neighbors Row was originally part of the Bigelow summer estate. The 500-acre original estate was a working farm that stretched across what is now Route 16/White Mountain Highway and down to the Saco River.
The home expresses the architecture of this late Victorian era which in New England included the use of ship blanks as ship carpenters were also house carpenters. This has proudly been displayed behind custom glass on the third-floor turret where curved hull planks were used. The home was built by shipbuilders from the Bath area of Maine and Portsmouth, who used shipbuilding techniques and materials after they were displaced by iron workers making boats out of metal.
