We are pleased to feature a chat with one of our current sellers in Lisbon, NH. Our property owners at 5 Riverside Avenue
have owned this multi-family property for a couple of years now, and now offer this in-town charming property that could easily be converted to a single-family, live-in-one-and rent-another and have someone else pay your mortgage. Or add to your investment portfolio and have frontage on the Ammonoosuc River
To get a sense of what is like to live in Lisbon, NH
, we asked a few questions:
At this time, you feel the time is right to leave the beautiful Lisbon community. What led you to this decision?
Well, we aren't actually leaving because we own another home just down the road! We purchased Riverside Avenue as an investment property just after we purchased the other one. Jenn grew up in Lisbon and walked or drove past the house more times than she can count. Despite that, she had never been inside and it was fun to check out what the century-old home had to offer. The location is so convenient to the Lisbon Regional School
and Lions Community Field
. We've decided to sell the home to be able to have more time to focus on the other property we own in town.
Why is it great to live in Lisbon, NH? What did you enjoy about the area?
You're always bound to run into someone you know whether you're in Lisbon at a sporting event/game, having dinner in Littleton or getting ice cream near Woodsville. The small-town, New England charm is always evident and it's such a beautiful area to live.
Where do you shop and dine in the White Mountains and why do you enjoy those places?
There are some great restaurants in Littleton, NH, and we particularly love going down by the river and hanging out at those places. Lisbon has a new Thai restaurant called Thai Kitchen in Lisbon and they are getting some great reviews! There are some great breweries now in the area with such great atmospheres and, of course, great beer! For shopping, I always make sure to visit Pentimento's
when I'm in town.
Here are some links to area eateries and breweries we enjoy:
The Little Grille
Lisbon Village Pizza
in downtown Lisbon
Slick's Ice Cream
Schilling Beer Company
Rek-Lis Brewing Company
Iron Furnace Brewery
What do you look forward to the most when you come to your home in Lisbon?
Because our main home is in Northern Virginia where it's a much different pace of life, we love coming up to Lisbon where it just feels like life slows down for us in the quiet small town. There is access to so many outdoor activities in the area and it's so nice to see even locals take advantage of it all and appreciate it. We enjoy Franconia Notch State Park
—swimming at Echo Lake, walking through The Basin.We enjoy going over toward Crawford Notch and checking out Bretton Woods and in Vermont, we enjoy the Kingdom Trails in East Burke, VT
What events can you recommend to people coming into the community?
The Lisbon Lilac Festival
is a must with a parade, rides, music and food over Memorial Day weekend. If there are sports events/games going on at the community field, we enjoy walking down and watching the hometown teams.
What tips would you give to new people coming into the community?
Get involved in the community by joining adult soccer or softball leagues or other activities. Get your morning coffee from Du-Ez Convenience Store. Get outside and take advantage of living in the White Mountains! If you do any of that, you'll quickly meet new people.
What were the favorite features of your home?
Given the age of the home, we loved many of the older features of the home, particularly the woodwork and curved wall upstairs. It has great storage areas and a very large yard. As previously mentioned, its location is great and convenient to so many things.
