You never know what to expect when working with REO properties.

Yes, that is a trap door located on the inside of the front door. The pit is about 9 feet deep. This Windham NH area home was part of Searles Castle. Built around 1905, this home was originally the guest house. It had it all. Complete with a stone wall surrounding it. Secret stairways and this pit. The home quite the history as noted here.

 

 

It is not exactly clear when they started breaking up the 175 acre property and selling off buildings and lots. In 1991 they began to renovate the castle itself. In 2001 the sisters hired someone to manage weddings and events at the castle and courtyard. Many buildings that were sold off all become residential homes. 

 

You may be wondering how i ended up at this home almost falling in this pit.?

 

Working in the bank owned segment of real estate, the owners left this home and the bank is taking it back. Part of my REO duties is conducting valuations of property. Now it is a good thing i noticed this pit when looking in the door and opted for a side door entry without a pit.

 

Back then could have been used as a security measure from invaders. Today the liability to keep away solicitors may be high. However a still interesting feature for me to share with you. 

 

My infamous closing: All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. By using a philosophy, which is simple, to provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process, I can help you find your dream home or sell your property. Your agent can stand behind you and assist with obstacles such as this.
