On the Market: A Waterfront Retreat on Lake Winnipesaukee
We're not sure what the best part of this home is: the mountain views, the private sugar sand beach, or the smart home technology found inside.

We’re approaching the season when a good chunk of Massachusetts spends their Friday afternoons sitting in traffic on the Bourne or Sagamore Bridge to get to their summer retreats on the Cape. Why not skip the traffic and find a getaway up north? This home on Lake Winnipesaukee offers the same sand and sun you’ll find on the Bay State’s best beaches, but in a quiet mountain setting away from the crowds. And it comes equipped with eco-friendly home features that’ll win over the heart of any environmentalist.
Built in 2016, this custom Adirondack-style house was custom crafted with the utmost care to create a home that’s both luxurious and eco-conscious, perfect for nature lovers likely drawn to this wooded escape. A gated entrance opens up to a pervious paver driveway. Inside, smart technology makes the home both state-of-the-art and environmentally friendly. The new owners will delight in the smart window and door solar shades, Wi-fi equipped thermostats and sprinkles, and smart air handlers that keep the house climate-controlled and the yard looking fresh without wasting resources.
You can enjoy your manicured lawn from a large patio off the back of the house that overlooks your very own mini beach. According to the listing agent, the sugar sand stretch found in this backyard gets southern sun exposure. On summer days, you can soak up the rays, go boating, or swim. Views of the lake on three sides and of the mountains to the north create a beautiful backdrop for hosting summertime parties and cookouts. Be sure to get out there in the evenings, when you can enjoy unobstructed views of sunsets on the water.
No expense was spared when it comes to this home’s interior design as well. In the heart is a chef’s kitchen with granite countertops and backsplashes. A Sub-Zero fridge, wine cooler, and Wolf gas cook top make the space equivalent to one you’d find in a restaurant. A main living space with matte finished oak floors, coffered ceilings, and a stone gas fireplace creates an equally luxe space to relax. And lest you think this home is only good for summer, a heated sunroom will convince you otherwise. Between that and the first-floor main bedroom suite with a rainfall shower and soaking tub, you may decide to make “vacation” year-round and never leave this home.
