Before buying, they looked at no fewer than 30 properties in the Littleton, Bethlehem, Easton, Franconia, and Sugar Hill areas. What convinced them to decide on this particular place? “The crystal doorknobs did it for me,” Len laughed, and Joan agreed. But now, with their children and nine grandchildren living elsewhere, a house with four corner bedrooms (including a master bedroom with fireplace and sleeping porch), three bathrooms, a separate guest suite with bedroom and bathroom, a pantry, a full attic and cellar, a sitting room, and a study, besides the living room, dining room, and kitchen — 3,700 square feet in all — is more house than they need.

“After all these years here, won’t it be sad to leave Bethlehem?” we asked as we worked our way into a second scone.

“It’ll be sad to give up this beautiful home of ours,” Len, now retired, replied, “but we have no intention of leaving. We have our eye on a condominium just down the street.” Guess that alone says quite a lot about New Hampshire’s little town of Bethlehem. Happy holidays, everyone.

    Is the heat electric or gas and how much are the monthly heating bills?

    How much are the real estate taxes?

    The price is not high based on the square footage and the number of bedrooms, guest bedroom, size of the veranda,etc.!

    Houses in our are are much more expensive and not as much square footage!

    It’s not the asking price — it’s the property taxes. They are ridiculously high in NH and Bethlehem is way up there.
