Sunninghill Farm – a sprawling, 287-acre historic equestrian estate in New Hampshire’s forested rolling hills just 60 miles from Boston, will be offered at auction with no reserve July 21, 2015, by Heritage Luxury Real Estate Auctions. This historic family estate, rich with unique features for horse lovers, has been painstakingly and meticulously updated for the 21st Century following a $7.5+ million, four-year restoration.
The estate amply accommodates a large family within the 9 bedrooms on-site, plus plenty of open space to pursue one’s outdoor desires. Built in 1751, the historic main residence offers four bedrooms and six fireplaces; while a restored, 1700s, four-bedroom guesthouse includes an extra full apartment on the lower level. Other outbuildings build on the inherent charm of the estate and include the pool house, designed as a rustic New England Sugar style house, a rustic log cabin and a world-class show jumping facility. An ice skating pond and an infinity edge saline swimming pool provide postcard perfect relaxation only 60 miles from Boston. The estate can also be easily maintained and overseen by the homestead’s caretaker from the onsite caretaker’s cottage.
Sunninghill Farm is a standout among all New England estates acreage in its well-appointed and high-end equestrian facilities, including a heated, nine-stall, restored, 1700s Chestnut barn originally from Massachusetts. A derby field, outdoor arena, paddocks with run-in sheds, trails, and grazing fields, are all within close proximity to scenic nearby lakes and rivers. A heated, indoor, 100-foot by 200-foot area – the largest of its kind in New England – offers year-round training opportunities for the stable.
