185 Three Rivers Farm Road, Dover, New Hampshire

This meticulously restored 3 story Georgian mansion, done in an Arts & Crafts architecture, sits on 18.9+/- waterfront acres. The home has 10,000+/- square feet, containing 8 bedrooms and is improved with stunning period features that have been brought back with precise 
restoration. In addition to the main residence, the additional improvements include a waterside dock and a cabin (on a mini island), the original restored 36’ x 110’ 3 story post and beam barn with 3 different living quarters, a brick four car garage with living quarters, a one bedroom Guest House by the water’s edge, and an in ground heated pool.

The History of the “Cottage” at Three Rivers Farm revolves around one man’s vision to have a magnificent Summer Compound for his family and for entertaining. That man was Edward Warren Rollins, son of Edward H. Rollins who was a United States Senator and Congressman, as well as the founder of The First National Bank of Concord, among other prominent positions. Edward enlisted the renowned Boston architectural firm of Chapman and Frazer to design a residence that suited this fabulous location. Three Rivers refers to the confluence of the mighty Piscataqua River as it joins the Cocheco and Salmon Falls Rivers. At the time, the family owned all the surrounding acreage. Built in 1901, this one of a kind home retains the elegance of Georgian Revival architecture, with an abundance of Arts and Crafts influence and details. The entire property has been painstakingly restored and brought back to its original,  authentic standard while embracing modern features.

Situated near the banks of the river, with over a half of a mile of owned water frontage, this property offers a very private setting. Across the river, the property benefits from an eternal easement that protects the shorefront from development and provides wonderful, natural forested views.  As you approach this home from the long, tree lined driveway, you get a glimpse of the magnificence of this setting.

  1. I think the taxes will exceed the asking price in a couple of years.
