Location, location, location! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a riverfront home in which you can swim, cross-country ski on 150 kilometers of Jackson cross country ski trails, hike, and golf - out your front door. This architecturally designed 4,752 square foot home, which sits on 2.5 acres atop the Jackson Falls, with the living room, greenhouse off the kitchen and dining area, the intimate fireplaced living room, and lovely upper-level bedroom all south facing, is a peaceful oasis that abuts the Eagle Mountain Golf Course, conservation land, the federally designated Wild and Scenic Wildcat River and is also within walking distance to Jackson Village. Imagine yourself in the outdoor hot tub on this home’s 65-foot deck with the river gurgling beneath your feet. A few of the luxury features of this home are a 230 square foot recently remodeled master bath overlooking the river, a cedar shake roof, two-story granite stone fireplace and heated floors, ample closet systems, including a cedar closet, European designed kitchen by Old World Kitchens of Portland, and private office/guest suite above the two-car garage with bath. Come visit this home that best incorporates New Hampshire’s scenic beauty with the finest indoor living. You’re not just buying a beautiful home, but a lifestyle!
This beautiful home, set at the top of Jackson Falls, is surrounded by history and nature. Enjoy beautiful river and mountain views and relax on the banks of the Wildcat, a federally designated Wild and Scenic River. That designation, along with the White Mountain National Forest and the town’s River Conservation District protect the river and its watershed. Directly across from the house on the other side of the river is the 62 acre Old Pinkham Farm Easement which was permanently-preserved in late 2014. The land was transferred to the Jackson Ski Touring Foundation with an easement held by the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust to ensure the permanent protection of open space and habitat land. An easement to the Jackson Ski Touring Foundation brings you the benefit of the Eagle Mountain Fields cross-country ski trail meandering by your home; you can jump right on to the trail. That easement comes with annual ski passes to the expansive and nationally known 150 km trail system.
Walking up from Jackson Falls on the right, you’ll see the Valley Cross Road Bridge (also known as Fairview Bridge), an historic truss steeled-frame bridge. It was originally built down in the village around 1910 and moved to its present location in the 1930s. If you walk just a few hundred yards up Valley Cross Road you find the Jackson Tennis Club. Jackson Falls was the focus of recreational activity in the 19th and 20th centuries and it still is today. In the heyday of Wentworth Hall, outdoor luncheons were served at the Wentworth Hall Solarium. The hotel itself was very formal and if you wanted to relax in less formal attire, it was an afternoon at the Falls. You can see remains of the walkways, and decks of the Solarium. Today, people visit the Falls to sunbathe, picnic, walk, and photograph the rushing water. Jackson Village was known as a center for landscape painters of the White Mountain School of Art. Today, Erik Koeppel continues that tradition and you can see his beautiful paintings in the Jackson Historical Society’s Museum of White Mountain Art down the road after the Wentworth Castle.
