Introducing the historic Senator Bell Farm, a 120-acre, turn-key equestrian hunter/jumper, boarding, training and show facility located in the picturesque town of Chester NH. The Bell family settled in this area in the 1700s, becoming a prominent influence in the state of NH and beyond, producing a US Senator, a NH Senator and 3 NH Governors. US Sen. Samuel Bell purchased the farm in 1813 and retired here twenty years later. It continues today as a prestigious equestrian community and a significant part of Chester's history. Included on the farm is a lovely, updated, 4-bedroom residence (c.1880) with an attached, 2-story in-law apartment, fenced yard and in-ground pool. The farm operation offers 40 stalls throughout 4 barns, a 70'x160' indoor arena, 3 large turnout fields, 11 individual paddocks with wood fencing, 3 large outdoor riding/show rings, show-quality jumps and a large open meadow with a pond and miles of trails for hacking. For the outdoor enthusiast, the farm is a beautiful setting for activities including cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing and swimming. Further, there is a barn apartment for a manager, a many areas for events and two large, metal equipment buildings (2500 sf each). The farm hosts NSHA Pleasure show series and their own Hunter show series. Whether you choose to continue the facility as a business, or steward your own gentleman's farm, Senator Bell Farm will indeed fulfill your dreams. Paradise found!
