Have you had your fill of dowdy, musty rentals? Do you appreciate the aesthetics of a truly beautiful home with quality furnishings and all the amenities, in a gorgeous setting? Then you've come to the right place.
We fell in love with this stunning wooded, lakefront lot and worked with an architect to design a custom home that would do it justice. The result is this 4-bedroom, 3.5 bath home whose bedrooms ALL face the lake, and whose great room will instantly relax you -- it's that serene and beautiful, with its full wall of windows overlooking the pond.
Relax on the screen porch, on the patio, or on the master bedroom's balcony -- the views are glorious in every direction, no matter where you choose to hang out. Or jump off the private dock into the crisp, refreshing waters of our tranquil no-motorcraft pond. Three kayaks, a canoe and a floating dock with built-in sunbathing chaises are yours to enjoy. If you want your kids to make friends, just walk up the road to one of two sandy, shared neighborhood beaches, one of which has a basketball court.
Our home, dubbed 'Lakehouse Heaven,' is in Madison, just outside North Conway -- which offers all the restaurants you could ask for, plus tax-free shopping (take your pick: outlets, handcrafts, antiques, or all three), mini-golf, movies, summer stock theater, and nightlife. And better yet, we are right in the heart of the glorious White Mountains, offering hiking, biking, rock climbing, paddling, secluded swimming holes, plus numerous ski resorts offering summer fun in the form of mountain slides, zip lines, and more.
This house is well suited to sharing by two families, since 2 bedrooms are on the first floor and 2 are on the second, with custom-tiled bathrooms both upstairs and down. There are queen size beds in the upstairs master bedroom and in one of the downstairs bedrooms. The second downstairs bedroom has a pair of twin beds, and the final upstairs bedroom has a double bed plus a twin bed. There is a twin-size daybed in the loft and a finished walkout basement with twin-size LL Bean sleeper chair and two twin-size mattresses “disguised” as wall hangings.
The loft also offers a comfortable desk, for those who need to get work done while on vacation. (Wi-fi is provided.) The Master Bedroom boasts a private balcony with views of the pond and the hills beyond.
A full laundry room and walkout basement rec room add to the home's family-friendly appeal. The kitchen is a cook's dream, with high-end stainless appliances, the quietest Bosch dishwasher on the market, and a layout designed for multiple cooks. Or treat yourselves to dinner out, at a wide variety of nearby restaurants.
This house will not disappoint -- except when the time comes to leave!!
