The Thomas Russell Hubbard House is a testament to historical luxury and taste.  Built in 1867, this Italianate Villa, offers a level of quality and splendor not often seen.  Luxurious rooms offering arch shaped hardwood doors revealing intricate designs as light plays across them.  Classic marble fireplaces adorned with elaborate mantles anchor beautiful public and private spaces as elegant chandeliers illuminate stunning millwork and design. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Hubbard Varney Mansion as it’s affectionately known, is said to “possess symbolic, stylistic, and technical sophistication and stands as one of the best examples of its architectural type within its region” by the NH State preservation department.

This elegant home features 5 bedrooms including 4 suites with private baths, an upscale “chefs” kitchen with stainless appliances and beautiful quartz counters. The distinctive formal library features a wooden Eastlake style mantlepiece with pieced fireboard incised with the initials DBV, for David B Varney, a former Mayor of Manchester.  

The home is situated on the property to enjoy breath taking mountain, city and river views all from from the captivating fourth floor cupola.

Significance

The Thomas Russell Hubbard House possesses integrity of location, design, materials, workmanship, feeling, and association. The dwelling retains a portion of its integrity of setting, although subdivision of its original city-block sized lot has reduced the extent of the building’s original landscaping. The house meets National Register Criterion C, displaying the distinctive characteristics of the Italian Villa dwelling as codified by Andrew Jackson Downing and as embodied in a number of similar dwellings standing in the neighborhood, the city, and the region. Neither the house nor it’s setting represents an exception to National Register criteria.

As the home of an intelligent and self-made craftsman, the Hubbard House symbolizes the uprightness and stature of its owner and displays the artistic taste and skilled craftsmanship with which that owner had established his local reputation. The house possesses symbolic, stylistic, and technical sophistication and stands as one of the best examples of its architectural type within its region. Remaining almost unaltered from the time of its original construction in 1867, the Hubbard House has a period of significance extending from that date to 1937.
