What $499,900 Buys You in New Hampshire: White Birch Farm

The original c. 1800 clapboard has been added onto over the years.

This 81.5-acre spread in the rural town of Langdon encompasses hayfields, pastures, stands of pines and sugar maples, and a spring-fed pond—all laid out on a drivable trail system.

The 2,746-square-foot clapboard farmhouse, which dates to around 1800, offers three bedrooms, two baths, and an attached two-car garage with a pair of unfinished rooms on the second level. In addition to a striking 36-by-62-foot barn, outbuildings include several lean-to equipment sheds and a heated workshop that’s even larger than the main residence.

The Provenance

The current owner, now in his mid-80s, used to raise Black Baldy cattle on the farm’s pastures, ran a wholesale greenhouse-supply business from the barn, and repaired music boxes professionally in the workshop.

The 1950s barn received a new metal roof in 2012.

The springfed pond provides water for irrigation.

Caveat Emptor

The place comes with a couple of humans attached: A nearby dairy farmer currently maintains the 11 acres of hay under a “gentleman’s agreement,” and a local cabinetmaker rents the 2,784-square-foot workshop. The upside: The latter deal is month-to-month and provides enough rental income to cover annual taxes and insurance for the entire property. Lastly, though the home is in move-in condition, its décor and appliances could use updating.
