    Castle in the Clouds

    A mountaintop New Hampshire estate known as "Castle in the Clouds" has been named to the National Register of Historic Places.

    The nearly 5,300-acre estate in the Ossipee Mountains was originally owned by shoe manufacturer Thomas Plant. Called Lucknow, it offers 75-mile views across Lake Winnipesaukee and to mountains. Plant oversaw the construction of several buildings from 1913 to 1914.

    Its features include a clay tile roof with a gray and salmon stone veneer; carved woodwork; Italian marble fireplace surrounds; oak-paneled walls; a plaster ceiling with relief wisteria flowers, leaves, and vines; and seven skylights. The front entrance is sheltered by a second-story gable-roofed porch.

    There's a two-mile entry drive and driveway with stone posts and retaining walls, gardens, and 40 miles of mountain roads and bridle paths.
