"History is the witness that testifies to the passing of time: it illumines reality, vitalizes memory, provides guidance in daily life and brings us tidings of antiquity". (Cicero-106BC-43BC). The history of this unique Holderness home cannot be overstated. This was the original "Shepard Farm", which has been traced back to the family of Alan Shepard, the N.H. astronaut. The current owners have a local history all their own, which lends to the mystique of this wonderful property. The 3 BR antique cape sits on 7.6 acres of fields and woodlands, and the barn on an adjoining 1.13 acre parcel, all of which lends to the charm and graciousness of this marvelous country estate. From here you are within walking distance to "Piper Cove", and a private waterfront community on Big Squam Lake, with your own private boathouse, bathhouse, and shared sandy beach. Put this all together, and this property will definitely bring you the "tidings of antiquity" with the "guidance for your daily life".
