Maple syrup enthusiasts, here's your chance to own a certified tree farm only 18 miles west of Manchester. Timberinghill, as it's known, commands the second-highest price per acre and second-highest property taxes in our slide show. But it offers fruit trees, sugar maple trees for syrup and enough room for a starter Christmas tree farm. There's also a horse pasture, a pond and plenty of trails. This property has a New England-style barn that's currently set up for sheep, alpaca or cattle. The main home is a colonial farmhouse, a late 18th-century beauty surrounded by open land. It has well-maintained pine floors and two fireplaces. You'll also find a detached garage with three bays (one for a tractor) and a rustic summer cottage with a half bath, perfect for an art studio. The cottage features a covered porch for cool summer nights. The farm is bordered by conserved land, so you won't have to worry about development.
