15 Mount Saint Marys Way, Apt 215, Hooksett, NH
Condo in NH 1907 Former Mansion ~ under $40,000
I’m not into condos, but I thought this listing interesting. The exterior and interior common rooms of this circa 1907 historic structure are quite spectacular. The condo itself, however, is very disappointing. It has been stripped of its soul. They could have uncovered a brick wall, installed bulkier trim, or at least outfitted the kitchen with cupboards more in keeping with the era of the building.
The building was a Roman Catholic college for women until 1978. Before that it was the privately owned mansion of the Galt family. As per Wikipedia: “The campus of Mount Saint Mary was dominated by Mercy Hall, a five-level (one below ground, four above ground) former mansion featuring white Italian marble as well as mahogany and oak interiors purchased in 1909 by the Sisters of Mercy from the prominent Galt family. The already existing Mount Saint Mary Academy, a preparatory school for girls, was relocated here, ultimately transitioning into college status in 1934. Throughout the existence of the school, this building housed nearly all academic and administrative facilities as well as several auditoriums, a ballroom, a chapel, a dining hall, a gymnasium, and dormitory rooms for resident students.”
Here’s what the realtor has to say. “Welcome home to the marble foyer, grand stair cases, and joys of entertaining friends and family in the large game room attached to a Grand Ball Room. Enjoy open concept living, vaulted ceilings, new paint and new carpets in this bright and spacious loft-like garden style apartment with lovely views. Take one of the two elevators to this sunny second level (2th floor) Condo located in the gorgeous Mount Saint Mary’s building with 1 bedroom and 1 bath in 535 square feet. Small Pets allowed, no dogs – sorry. Condo fee includes heating, cooling (AC), building maintenance, landscaping, trash removal and snow removal.”
