4 Season Resort Living in your Own Home!
This week’s Featured Home is an impeccable contemporary in Gilford with majestic views of Lake Winnipesaukee and the mountains beyond.
Floor to ceiling windows, sliding doors, and many decks afford breathtaking views that bring the “outside in” from sunrise to sunset into this sprawling 3100 sq ft home. This meticulously maintained 8 room custom contemporary boasts breathtaking views from all levels.
The modern kitchen will take your breath away with its sprawling views of Lake Winnipesaukee, the islands, and mountain ranges. There’s an entire wall and ceiling of windows, with a glass door walkout leading to one of the many trek decks, spanning the entire length of the house, with clear views to the very end of Meredith Bay. Both the kitchen and decks are excellent for entertaining, and enjoying the 4 season views and starry nights.
Still on the main floor is a large yet cozy family room with hard wood floors and a large brick raised fireplace with tastefully built in shelving on either side. Enjoy a crackling fire while viewing the lake and mountain views out of the windows and sliding glass door that leads to the bi-level trek deck, extending to the kitchen deck. This provides even more flow for large group entertaining.
A hallway with windows and yet another large side deck, leads to a full tiled bath, and a spacious mud room that connects with the 2 car heated garage. Even the garage windows have beautiful views. The mud room is a great place for skis, boots and coats when coming in from skiing.
A stairway leads to the huge, heated, partially finished basement, which is plumbed for a full bath and was built and designed for a potential apartment. A full wall of twelve windows opens to the gardens and lake and mountain views.
Off of the home’s main entrance is a grand stairwell that leads directly up to the double door master bedroom suite on the 2nd floor. Open to the doors to the magnificent room with cathedral ceiling and skylights. This grand master features hardwood floors, windows to the ceiling, and a glass slider opening to a third floor trek deck, expanding the views even higher.
The attached master bathroom provides additional privacy with 2 steps and double doors, opening to a contemporary style bathroom with cathedral ceiling, windows over the large counter with double sinks, mirrored walls and cabinets, and a glass walk-in shower. A luxurious Jacuzzi bathtub surrounded by intricate tiles is the focal point of the room. The walk-in closet is well-designed for maximum functionality and storage.
A bright windowed hallway leads to a full tiled bath with a cathedral ceiling and skylight. Also in the hall are two additional third floor bedrooms that are bright and airy with large windows and beautiful views. One bedroom, views the gardens and natural side of the house, while the other views the lake and mountains, with a cathedral ceiling and skylight.
Outside, the meticulously landscaped lot with manicured gardens is quiet and serene, adjacent to protected conservation land, giving the allure of a private resort.
The property is mainly flat with a large side yard, and abuts an extensive trail system for hiking, cross country skiing or snowshoeing. Gunstock Recreation and Ski area is just minutes away, as is the Gilford Beach and Gilford public boat launch.
