THE OAKS- On the market in its entirety for the first time in over 30 years, this elegant historic property was the family estate of artist Maxfield Parrish from 1898 to 1966. It is made up of a main house, the renovated studio building, and a guest house. The Oaks sits on a lovely 45 acres near Plainfield Village and the Cornish, NH town line. True to its name, the property's winding drive is dotted with magnificent oak trees punctuating the landscape. It culminates with a grand majestic oak that may be one of the oldest in the state and forms a large courtyard on which all three buildings front. There are numerous features still in tact on the property that were the direct inspiration for many of Parrish's paintings including archways, reflecting pools, mature landscaping, and the dramatic view of Mount Ascutney to the south. There is an inspiring magic to the property both inside and out. The studio was renovated & restored by the owner architect keeping many of Parrish's original features such as the coffered ceiling, archways, and abundant light. The Oaks would be perfect continuing as a family compound, or reimagined as it once was as a famous country inn, or utilized as an event/ creative/ educational/ artistic space.
