Priced far below appraised value. Originally built in 1730 and enlarged in the 1780s, Fairbourne is an elegant, private estate being offered for the first time in seventy years.

The setting is well off the road and includes mature trees, perennial gardens, a spring-fed pond, and spring house.All the warmth and charm of this pre-Revolutionary house has been preserved including original white pine, random-width flooring, five fireplaces, deep window sills, and antique hardware. The house is full of natural light, and every window and door offers a beautiful view. On the first floor is a beautiful country kitchen with new stainless appliances and Corian counter tops and washer and dryer hookup.
