Comments:

"The Willard House": Built by Stedman Willard in 1840 on land he purchased from Samuel Morey two years earlier, this represents the last of the homes to be built on the area known as "The Ridge" in Orford, NH. Sited for its classic lines, with two chimneys on either side of the structure, this simplified Greek Revival home has evolved into one of the areas most stately properties. High ceilings, original wood floors, detailed moldings, and formal spaces hearken to a time of elegance and a slower pace of life. This 16-room expanse has six bedrooms and five full baths, a large and functional kitchen, and a lovely family room at the back of the ell that serves as the hub of the less formal spaces. The front stairway ascends to a gentle curve at the second floor, perhaps in tribute to other homes on the Ridge with a similar detail. The wide, pillared front porch, added just after 1905, is just the place to relax and take in the peaceful scenery. The grounds are exquisite, with lush gardens, mature trees, walkways, expansive lawns, and a wonderful barn. In the same family for over 80 years, this home is an opportunity to own a piece of history in one of the regions most significant architectural developments. Professor Hugh Morrison, architectural authority and retired professor of architecture at Dartmouth College, has said of the houses on the ridge: "As a row and counting the setting, this is the finest group of Federal-style houses in the United States."
