28 School Street || $465,000 || Sold


Built circa 1795 by Ross Coon, a self-proclaimed physician and minister more famously remembered as having been a tavern-keeper “who kept a good bar,” this Federal Period home sits proudly on the village green in Haverhill Corner, New Hampshire. The Ross Coon Tavern is now a fully restored three-bedroom two-bath private residence, faithfully preserving period details that blend seamlessly with the conveniences of modern amenities and updated systems. Crossing the threshold into the home from the spacious sunroom entrance, one is immediately transported back in time. From the historical color palette, to the 12 over 12 windows with antique wavy glass, to the curved pulpit staircase, the interior presents a wealth of preserved period details. Other historic features include wide pine flooring, five working Rumford fireplaces, and antique door hardware throughout. The center of the home is the large country kitchen and pantry equipped with custom hand-planed cabinetry by The Kennebec Company, honed granite sinks and countertops, and a full-size four-oven classic AGA cooker. Modern amenities include authentic reproduction lighting fixtures and Sub-Zero appliances. Sited on a three-acre parcel of mostly open land and taking full advantage of its southern exposure, the home offers an abundance of natural light in a setting which is remarkably private given its village location. Professionally landscaped, the lot includes established perennial gardens, a stone patio, and hay field.
