This unique Mountain House sits on 25 acres and is located one mile off US Highway, Route 3. We are about 165 miles to downtown Boston and 115 miles from the Manchester, N.H. airport. This custom built 2000 square foot home has one of the finest southern views of any house in the region. On a sunny day you can see as far away as Cannon Moutain, or as close as Martin Meadow Pond, where you can be in your kayak in five minutes from the house. Martin Meadow Pond also offers some of the best fishing of any small lake or pond within 20 miles.
If you love to hike or just nature walk, you don't even have to get in your car and drive. Don't be surprised if while on that walk you see a moose feeding in the fields down the road from us. Bird lovers will also be in heaven by the abundance of numbers and variety of species that love to hangout in our hardwood forest. If you enjoy skiing, Bretton Woods Ski Resort is only a 20 minute drive from the house; and only 10 minutes further is Cannon Mountain. If you love to snowmobile there are numerous places to choose from within a short ten minute drive.
Most of all, if you love the outdoors in a private setting and still only have to drive ten minutes to the grocery store, then you will love our place.
I grew up spending most of my life in the South. I manage a family business but, my position can best be summed up as a property manager.
My wife and I really knew nothing about the New England area. It wasn't until we were invited by friends to visit Northern New Hampshire in 2005 that I realized I had been missing out on a wonderful area. The area blew me away with its natural beauty that I had never experienced in the flatlands of Florida.
In 2006 we bought some raw land with the intention of building on our own 80 acre subdivision. Before we built our road, our realtor alerted us to this mountain house on 25 acres with beautiful Southern views. It was an easy decision to go forward to making this house a family retreat during the harsh summers in Florida.
Location, location, location. We love to be isolated but, also love to be close enough to get to the grocery store and other shopping in ten minutes. Being very close to some great fishing and kayaking ponds is important. When we want to go sking we are only 18 miles from Bretton Woods. If we are in the mood to go hiking, we have numerous places to go within 10-25 minutes.
