Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My wife and I have been renting out the lake house continuously since we finished the complete renovation of the property

Why the Owner Chose Hillsborough:
The panoramic lake view is incredible all year round, whether sunny, raining or snowing. The house is located near the end of a private dead end road so is secluded, away from traffic, with a wooded mountain behind the property .The water is clean and is not polluted with millfoil

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The area is extremely beautiful, and generally uncrowded. The Monadnock Region, 'is the road less traveled' compared to other vacation areas of NH. The beautiful and secluded private setting were the key reasons why we bought the house.
