              This brand new multi-million dollar home is on the 'gold coast' of exclusive Governor's Island. Enjoy everything the New Hampshire Lakes Region has to offer from this conveniently located yet private estate.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: We are a family of 5 who have enjoyed the lakes region for over 10 years. We are fortunate enough to own two beautiful homes on Governor's Island and would like to share one of them with you.

              Why the Owner Chose Gilford:
              When Governor's Island was first developed back in the 1920's this property was Lot 9 one of the first ten properties chosen due to its superior location and its breathtaking views. In 2010 this property became the catalyst for the repeal and state wide banning of a zoning ordinance called Involuntary Lot Merging. As such the property has been named LIBERTY HOUSE.

              The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
              This house was the second house we built on Governor's Island and as engineers we made sure we did everything right the second time! The open floor plan, amazing views and inviting waterfront make this home unforgettable. Everything in this house is brand new. In the wintertime the snow covered lake and clear views are almost startling and the summer time is just paradise. Come see for yourself!
