About Dave Rice
I started coming to Lake Winnipesaukee as a kid during family vacations, so I have a long, close connection to the area. I'm a custom home builder and remodeler and truly love seeing people have a great experience in the spaces I build.
Dave Rice purchased this house in 2012
Why Dave Rice chose Gilford
I bought this property in 2012 and did a complete tear down of the previous home. Having previously done 9 houses, I built this home for myself, so it has tons of amenities and creature comforts. The location is ideal with a ski resort 2 minutes away and the 'Big Lake' 4 minutes away. It was hard work getting some of the trees down, but the view from every room was worth it!
What makes this house unique
There are so many unique benefits of this house! It's all brand new, from the solid, well-built, (crown moldings to the radiant heat floors),home itself to all the furnishings. I situated the house so that there are views of the 'Big Lake' from every room. The large deck overlooks the lake and has a gas grill & fire pit. Both the deck and inside have abundant seating - perfect for entertaining. The Sonos sound system (inside & out) enhances any mood. It's a great place to relax with a special someone or a large group - the house is a luxury experience in so many ways and during all four seasons!
The kids (and the young at heart) will have a blast playing air hockey and ping pong on the basement level and no worries about disturbing those upstairs.
Your rental comes with access to a private dock & launch at another home I own/rent on the lake with space for a 26 ft. boat and a jet ski. Enjoy everything the mountain and the lake have to offer!
