226 Wilton Rd, Peterborough

Majestically sited at the gateway of the Monadnock region, the Historic Wilson Tavern has been lovingly preserved and meticulously updated, maintaining antique character while embracing modern amenities. Originally built in 1797 complete with a widow's walk, it is situated on an 80-acre lot with stunning landscaping and lush, irrigated lawns. This home boasts over 7,000 square feet of living space, and the newer addition flows seamlessly into the old, with wide pine floors throughout the first level. The custom cherry kitchen is generously appointed and complemented by an enormous island, a walk-in pantry, and a cozy gas fireplace -- one of 11 fireplaces throughout the home. The step-down living room brings the outside in with three walls of windows and overlooks the wading pool with a fountain and amazing gardens. Warmer weather months extend the living space to the columned screened porch. There are five bedrooms on the second floor, along with a media room and an office; you can choose from two master suites. A total of eight bathrooms are all elegantly appointed. Yet another structure currently serves as an office, but could easily be a luxurious guest suite, with a gorgeous 3/4 bath already in place. Need more space? There is an oversized three-car garage with built-ins and a second floor for storage. As you would expect, the systems of this one of a kind home have been impeccably maintained and include a whole-house automatic generator and an alarm system.
