This home is truly one of a kind; starting with its history, rooted in the sale of the land from its famous former owner, Robert Frost (hence its nickname, “Holden Frost House”), to its interior, which features chateau-like features and an amazing living room that resembles a ballroom from the grand palaces of yore, to its spectacular setting with glorious views of the Presidential and Kinsman Ranges and through Franconia Notch, including the fabled peaks of Mount Washington, Mount Lafayette, and Cannon. And if that weren’t enough, the home features not only a large hot tub, but also an outdoor pool – a rare find in the White Mountains! Soak in the view, swim, roast marshmallows on the fire pit, relax in Air Conditioned grandeur – come experience this one of a kind White Mountains Vacation! This home will make you feel like royalty!
