Year Purchased: 1984

About: Hi,I am John English.I would like to share a memory with you.I remember as a child vacationing with my family at my Uncles home in Lake Winnipesaukee, NH. Those weeks spent in an extended family environment were such a special time with the best of memories! With those memories in mind I embarked upon building a home that would allow me to duplicate the type of atmosphere I grew up with.We constructed and developed the site for multiple families to share and enjoy. Areas large enough to enjoy together ,and yet with ample space to retreat to and enjoy private quieter times. My kids,who are now 33-21 all remember their childhood vacations there in the same way I did.As young adults they are continuing that tradition as well, living with close family friends,relatives and grandparents(me!!)

Why Athens:
I was lucky enough to find the property our home is built on, 2.5 acres of undeveloped pristine waterfront at great value.The house and beach are positioned to enjoy the beautiful sunsets.Our home is located on a peninsula with a 180 degree vista of water. 800' of shoreline to sun yourself as if you were in Bermuda or shade yourself under the majestic trees of a New England Forest.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The time spent here can not be duplicated on a family afternoon visit,which is what most of us are restricted to.We have decided to make our home available for other families and close friends to have the special times we have been blessed with all our lives. Our home is not a business it is our own special personal space and we hope that you feel the warm peacefulness and family reflecting time there that we have.
