About this property

This fantastic Adirondack home is bursting with charm and history, and located near the Harris Center for Conservation Education, Nubanusit Lake, and other beautiful historic Hancock homes. Built in 1916 for L. Vernon Briggs, a prominent Boston psychiatrist and pioneer of mental asylum reform, it was later acquired by Ambassador Joseph Grew. Grew was the American ambassador to Japan at the time of the air attack on Pearl Harbor. A long-time Metropolitan Opera star, Jarmila Novotna, stayed there one summer. You can enjoy views of stunning Mount Monadnock from the porch as well as from the two bedrooms on the west end of the house. Amazing details can be found in every room: the kitchen boasts a majestic 1930's cast-iron cook stove; the front staircase has oak tree trunks as newel posts and oak limbs and branches as banisters; there's a passive solar greenhouse with a brick floor; the mud room has a floor of Italian terracotta tiles; the kitchen has a beautiful cork floor; numerous built-ins; and an impressive two-sided fireplace divides the bright living and dining rooms. This would make a wonderful full-time family home or grand vacation property.
