Merrill Road, Candia
Rockingham County, Merrill Road, Candia, New Hampshire
This 13.9-acre property has 50’ of road frontage, so a variance would be required to build on it. It also has lumber value as it has never been timbered. This lot could also be subdivided into 3-4 building lots. The property is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood and would be the perfect setting to build your dream home. Also, a great recreational lot with a pond and beaver dam on site!
Candia, first settled in 1748 as part of Chester, the town was originally called Charmingfare, probably because of its many parades, which are bridle paths winding through pleasant scenery. It was separated from Chester and named Candia in 1763 by Governor Benning Wentworth, possibly in memory of his sea travels as a Portsmouth trader following his graduation from Harvard in 1715. Candia was the name of the principal city of Crete, the largest of the Greek islands. Candia was the birthplace of poet, journalist, and publisher Sam Walter Foss.
Area attractions include the Rockingham Recreational Trail (9.6 miles) – brings at least two superlatives to mind: it’s one of New Hampshire’s longest rail-trails at just more than 28 miles, and it begins in Manchester, the state’s largest city. Travelers will find lakes and forests here, as well as former mill towns where they can stock up, relax, or visit historic buildings and relics left over from the railroad days. The Boston and Maine Railroad was the last to run trains on the Portsmouth Branch between Newfields and Manchester, selling the corridor to the state in 1988. The oldest railway section dates to about 1850 and was built by the Portsmouth and Concord Railroad. Succeeding railroads finished other sections of the Portsmouth Branch to Manchester in the early 1860s. The eastern section of the branch from Newfields to Portsmouth is still in service, while service to Epping, Raymond, Candia, Auburn, and Manchester ended in 1982. The first 2 miles of trail in Manchester are scheduled for paving by the end of 2018, while gravel or crushed rock covers the rest. There are few at-grade road intersections east of town, as the old railbed passes beneath the roads. Some of these underpasses have low ceilings, however, as the bottom of the culverts are planked with wood, so cyclists and equestrians should be prepared to dismount. In winter cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and dogsledding are permitted.
