Shaker Brook Farm is a unique estate for sale located in the town of Marlborough in the Mount Monadnock region of South Western New Hampshire. It is located on 73.3 acres of gently rolling hills consisting of woods, a running brook with crystal clear potable water, a naturally-fed 1/2 acre wildlife pond, landscaped gardens and sweeping lawns.

For the truly discerning buyer...Shaker Brook Farm offers the rare opportunity to own a vast expanse of land combining both traditional and modern construction. In this country setting, one may experience a sophisticated level of gracious living and entertaining, the delights of simple country living, and unusual privacy.

Cozy and historic, Shaker Brook Farm was the home and creation of Bernard M. Barenholtz, a co-founder of Creative Playthings and a noted collector of antique toys and American Folk Art. Owned by Bill & Peggy Heyman since 1993, it housed their extensive antique pressing iron collection until 2008 and currently houses their collection of miniature toy cookstoves and European country antiques.

At the center of the property is a cluster of three exceptional, but very different structures.

Click here for details of the Main House The Main House is a center chimney Colonial built about 1792 and since then impeccably preserved and maintained.

Click here for details of the Guest Cottage/Office The detached Barn, Guest Cottage or Office with its illuminated cupola was built around 1895. It was relocated to its present site in 1977 and converted to a self-contained residence which had been home to the estate's caretakers until 1993. Then it became a guest Cottage (2 bedrooms, Living/dining room, full bath & kitchen) for the new owners, Bill & Peggy Heyman...and finally in 2001, it became the home of Supreme Audio, a supplier of sound systems to gyms nationwide.

Click here for details of the Breezeway connecting the Main House with the Gallery The main house is connected to the gallery via a glass enclosed Breezeway.

Click here for details of the Gallery The third structure the Gallery, was built in 1978. While displaying a traditional octagonal Shaker barn exterior that blends with the surroundings, its interior reveals a contemporary multipurpose gallery designed originally to display the Barenholtz collection of antique toys and American folk art. The Gallery, with its illuminated octagonal cupola, also houses a luxurious master living suite with a balcony office or display space and storage areas. Workshop in basement and enclosed 2 1/2 car garage.

This property could be a wonderful destination fund-raising events, special parties or perhaps a B&B. It would also be perfect for a family who home schools. Great for entertaining! This building has comfortably hosted more than a dozen fund-raising concerts by the Apple Hill String Quartet, with dinner, for audiences of 70 attendees.

Shaker Brook Farm is bisected by Old Troy Road off Route 101 between the towns of Marlborough and Troy. Because it is in New Hampshire, the property and its owners will enjoy preferential tax treatment (no sales or personal income taxes) not available in neighboring states. The property's close proximity to both the Vermont and Massachusetts borders place it in a convenient location.
