This 2013 home is a craftsman’s masterpiece throughout. It was brilliantly designed for practicality and convenience with large, westerly-facing windows that maximize the enjoyment of New Hampshire’s beautiful mountains. Friends and family entering through the front door will marvel at how the natural light illuminates the entire space from front to back. With the entry open wide to the living room beyond, and with a wall of windows as the focal point, french doors lead to the expansive deck. Other features are beautiful hardwood floors, soaring cathedral ceilings, built-ins, and wood ceilings and accent walls that give the space depth, interest, contrast, and warmth.
The traditional New England exterior contrasts with the comfortable and casual open living space to include the kitchen, dining area, and living room. The kitchen is a chef’s dream with quartz countertops, raised panel cabinetry, and a large pantry. The windowed dining area has direct access to the deck and affords a view of the mountains, too. For formal entertaining and holiday meals, the dining room is steps from the kitchen in a quiet corner of the house. It features hardwood floors, wainscoting, and crown molding. A spacious office with built-ins is separated from the rest of the home by french doors.
Tucked away on the far end of the home’s first level, the master bedroom boasts a wood-rimmed tray ceiling, a large walk-in closet, and a built-in window seat. Its bath features a double vanity, beautifully tiled shower and soaking tub where you can enjoy the mountain views at the end of the day.
Designed for those who spend lots of time outdoors, the mudroom/side foyer with direct access to the heated, 3 car garage. It has a large coat closet, a laundry room with a utility sink, a bench to sit and take off your boots, and a guest half-bath. Another well-designed feature located in this area is the full-size stairway that leads to the walk-out basement for easy access. The basement has been set up and plumbed for an in-law if desired.
Upstairs, the second story views are even better from the railed bridge with a continuation of hardwood flooring that lends itself to become the family's art gallery. At one end is a lovely and roomy loft whose space would make a quiet sitting room, reading or writer's nook. There is a carpeted bedroom at each end that shares the full hall bath.
