You won’t want to leave Journey's End Road at Scobie Pond. After the workweek hustle and bustle of the city, spend long weekends at home on this quiet lake surrounded by nature. Swim off the town beach and jump off the raft, fish for bass, sail, canoe, or kayak in this peaceful setting. In winter, ice fish or cross country ski over the frozen lake. This 6.9 acre parcel, ready for your family’s dream house, is land with a history and is likely subdividable. Only two owners have held this scenic property since it passed out of the Shattuck family. Ruth Shattuck sold "the summer playground" in 1966. She was a descendant of Edmund Shattuck, whose father came to Francestown in 1798. In the book Frances’ Town by John R. Schott, he describes the beginning of NH tourism in the Monadnock Region, and mentions this lakefront property, "Among the facilities to cater to this group was a summer playground developed by the Shattucks on Haunted Lake, which had a bowling alley, picnic tables, and boating facilities for the fun and frolic of local residents as well as the seasonal visitor." This rectangular parcel abuts approximately 68 acres of permanently-protected conservation land, the Moulton Memorial Forest. Animals thrive here; loons, ring neck geese, grosbeaks, purple finches, blue herons, king fishers, hummingbirds, otters, minks, fox, raccoons, bobcats, deer, owls, and others. "Shattuck’s Acres" convey the promise of land with character and lifestyle enjoyment.
