Envision a "post card-picturesque" New Hampshire neighborhood made up of charming capes, stately saltboxes, and hip-roofed colonials. Experience a "new-old world" development devoted to quality over quantity footage, simple craftsmanship over mass production motif, and traditional over trendy architecture. Discover Olde Colony, a community of faithfully reproduced 18th century homes, at New Boston. Differentiated by paint color, architectural details, and landscaping, each home is crafted to compliment and blend beautifully into the replicated period of Olde Colony. Admire the traits of these traditional homes, compliments of their historical lineage￿the raw beauty of hemlock siding, the coziness of a masonary Rumford fireplace, the character of wide pine flooring, the detail of raised panel wainscoting and walls, and the nature of hand hued ceiling beams. Appreciate not inheriting the financial and labor intensive commitment of their ancestral relatives. It does not take long to travel back in time; Olde Colony, nestled into the northeast nook of Joe English Hill among acres of rolling pine knolls and graced with spectacular views of Mount Uncanoonuc, is a convenient 15 minutes from major highways. Bring the warmth and charm of yesteryear into your life. Reserve your place in history at Olde Colony.
