An exceptionally maintained historic home in Manchester, New Hampshire has been reduced to $839,000. The landmark Victorian Italianate manor is nestled in the heart of the Museum District and sited on a 0.26 acre property across the street from Wagner Park. Thomas Russell Hubbard, farmer turned businessman, built the four-storey wood frame residence in 1867 on an entire city block of land that he had purchased in 1864. The nearly 5,000 square foot residence has been lovingly maintained for 152 years by only four owners, including former Manchester mayor David Varney and music teachers George and Sophie Gerassi. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988. The interior highlights wonderful entertaining rooms such as an east & west parlour with extensive mouldings, hardwood floors and fireplaces, a chef’s kitchen with butler’s pantry and large formal dining room with bay window. The interiors showcase high quality woodwork throughout with elegant period details such as marble fireplace surrounds. As you ascend into the residence you find a collection of five bedrooms and five bathrooms before reaching the fourth floor tower adorned with arched windows. When the residence was originally built in 1867, many of the rooms enjoyed views to the west, over the Merrimack River to the nearby hills, the property also included a carriage house that was demolished when the land was subdivided. The 0.26 acre property also comes landscaped with a collection of beautiful plants such as Miss Kim Lilacs and flowering Crabapple Trees. The Hubbard-Varney Mansion is on the market for $839,000 with Cheryl Zarella with Coldwell Banker.
