About the Property
Modern 4-bedroom Cape, 100' lakefront with 30' dock.
Nestled on the south-western side of Rattlesnake Island is this modern four bedroom Cape. The house features 1700 sq ft of living space and hardwood floors throughout.
The first floor has two bedrooms, each with a queen-size bed and private balcony. On the third floor are two additional bedrooms; one with standard twin beds that can be configured as a king if preferred, the other with a daybed with a pop-up trundle. The upstairs bedrooms overlook the living room.
The open plan of the second floor affords everyone their own space, while allowing them to be together at the same time. The living room furniture is soft and inviting. The separate dining room is spacious and bright. There are four sliding glass doors that lead from the living room to the wrap-around deck, maximizing as much of the lakefront views as possible. The deck has a full-size outdoor dining table with umbrella, or take advantage of the screened-in porch instead.
The fully-equipped galley kitchen has a full-size refrigerator, electric oven and stove, and dishwasher. Together with the gas grill on the deck, you'll have all the tools you need for cooking.
At the lake level, enjoy diving and swimming from the aluminum dock where the water depth is 30 feet. Sunbathe on the dock, or relax with a book on the shaded lakeside deck.
Please be aware that this home is situated on the side of a steep incline. There are 50 steps from the dock to the house, and the lake is 30' deep at its shore. For this reason, the house may not be suitable for people who have difficulty with stairs or have small children.
The house is on a non-bridged island, so it is necessary for you to bring a boat to be used for all transportation.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

The property is located on a non-bridged island, so bringing your own boat is necessary. Lake Winnipesaukee and the towns surrounding the lake offer many options for dining and recreation accessible by boat. Towns such as Wolfeboro, Alton, Meredith, and Laconia provide public tie-ups for easy accessibility to the area's dining and attractions.
Year Purchased: 2015
Why the Owner Chose Alton, NH, USA:
In the summer of 2014, we spent a week in a rented home on a near-by island in Lake Winnipesaukee. While we had been renting lakeside properties for years, this location was exceptional. We loved the clear, fresh water of the lake, the serenity that came with being on an island, and the variety of things to do that were boat-accessible when we wanted a break from the island. The location was so exceptional that we decided we needed to find a an island place of our own! We called a realtor and fell in love with this house on our last day of vacation. The rest, as they say, is history.
