Seaview Farm, a historic circa 1808 center-chimney Cape Cod on 50 acres retaining many of its original features including three working fireplaces, wide pine floors, exposed hand-hewn beams, built-ins, hardware and woodwork. Once profiled in Yankee Magazine by Jake Chapline, it was named Seaview Farm because in the 1800s there was an unobstructed view of Portsmouth harbor, some 30 miles away. Forests have since reclaimed pastures and this sturdy cape is the only remaining building of 12 homes, a schoolhouse and a mill that once made up Farmington's District 2. Seaview is off the grid. There is no electricity; just the remnants of a solar power system. There is no indoor plumbing; just a 2-seat outhouse. Water is available from a spring and dug wells. It is accessed via a very rough class VI road. This historic property offers an opportunity for homesteaders to create a new chapter in Seaview's long history. It could also be used as a weekend get-away. The 50 acres feature rolling hills, gentle upland, a brook and 2 miles of finely weathered stone walls. It includes a network of trails ideal for hiking, snowmobiling and horseback riding. It's a short hike to Blue Job Mountain. Now in Current Use with an active forest management plan.
