WINDACRE BY THE MOUNTAIN. In 1913, Samuel Dacre Bush acquired a magnificent 1876 New Hampshire farm house, which would become the Homestead of the Bush Mansion. Although Samuel Bush made his fortune as a cotton merchant, he was better known as a patron of the arts and an adept gambler. Often, he would enjoy an evening of cards, with friends cheering his good luck; hence the name Win-Dacre became his nickname. Samuel Bush frequently hosted notable American painters like John Singer Sargent, Edmund Tarbell, Charles Woodbury, Frank Benson and Charles Curtis Allen. In 1993, Robert and Leigh Doody purchased the property and embarked on an exciting and lengthy journey to restore this grand 18,000 square foot home. Situated on 84.5 acres and located at the end of a private lane, Windacre offers breathtaking vistas of Mt. Monadnock. Throughout the estate, meticulous attention to old world craftsmanship is clearly evident, only utilizing the finest building materials, including exotic hardwoods from distant countries. However, the dream of completely restoring Windacre will now pass to a new owner. This property is ideal for an elegant corporate retreat, upscale inn/B&B, high-end rehab facility, or artist compound (several cabins can be added). Plumbing for a 22 zone heating system (no boiler) and 13 bathrooms, have been expertly installed. A new owner will be able to continue the construction, exploring their own artistic vision
