Hidden 13 Acre Estate with Coastal Cape Cod, Shingle-Style Home and Barn

3R Birnum Woods Road

Stratham, New Hampshire

Online-only Bidding Ends: Wednesday, June 14th at 1:00 p.m.

This expansive property offers total solitude with the home and barn strategically placed in the center of the acreage to offer a tranquil and secluded setting. The only connection to the world is the eight-hundred-foot winding driveway, adorned with perfectly spaced maple trees. Once you reach the home site you will find a custom-built 3,703 sq.ft. Coastal Cape Cod, shingle-style home with cedar shakes, natural stone siding, architectural columns, and Pennsylvanian maple flooring. As you enter the home, you first step into the two-story, circular foyer featuring a winding staircase and a wall of glass blocks that draws in the natural light. Continue to the main living area with a wood-burning Rumford fireplace, and further to the eat-in chef’s kitchen. The kitchen includes premium SieMatic white oak cabinets, Sheldon slate countertops, cabinet match Sub-Zero refrigerator and an exclusive La Cornue Chateau series handcrafted French range, one of the finest ranges money can buy. The kitchen opens into a four-season solarium with matching Sheldon slate flooring that looks out onto the flower gardens and flowering trees. The grounds are manicured, including the woods beyond which have been groomed, leaving just the mature trees. Also on the first floor is a temperature-controlled wine room, pantry with cabinet match Sub-Zero freezer, and a first-floor bedroom suite with a full bathroom. The second floor is open to the first with a balcony that overlooks the living area below. There are built-in cabinets to display artwork and your personal library. There are two, bedroom suites on the second floor which include the primary suite with a clawfoot soaking tub, marble tile walk-in shower, and bonus room for yoga or extra storage.

In addition to the three-car garage, there is an enviable boat/RV/car barn with interior dimensions of 66’L x 27’W x 16’H. The design is in keeping with the home, including the cedar shakes and natural stone siding. This structure was built to house a 60’ sailboat meaning the automatic drive-in door opens to a staggering 14’ tall by 15’5” wide. The barn is finished and heated, and includes a catwalk, exhaust fan, first and second-floor office or storage space, and covered outdoor storage measuring 54’ x 13’. The property includes a 35-kw standby Kohler generator which creates more than enough energy to power the entire estate.

Property Viewing: Tuesday, May 30th through Thursday, June 1st, and Monday, June 5th through Friday, June 9th by appointment only.
