About the neighbourhood
The Artist's House is on a quiet country road nestled against a large area of unbroken forest, and on a hillside that faces Ragged Mountain. Kearsarge Mountain can be seen in the distance from the nearby roads, and there are easily followed trails to the summit in two nearby state parks. The local roads serve as good walking trails as traffic is generally light.

A stream at the bottom of the hill leads to a waterfall 1.5 miles upstream. There are three bodies of water in the neighborhood, and kayaks or canoes can be hired. There is a town beach on the largest lake, and several golf courses and ski areas within a 30 minutes drive. The bicycle trail that follows the old railway is easily accessed from the house.

The house is located between the villages of Andover and East Andover...
