Lovely single family home with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Living room is sunken with gas fireplace and is open to Kitchen. There is a covered porch off of kitchen. The kitchen was completely updated in Spring 2012 with light cherry cabinets, Quartz solid surface counters, and stainless steel appliances, All three rooms have panoramic unobstructed views across the valley to the mountains to include from left to right - White Horse Ledge, Cathedral Ledge, Humphrey Ledge, Mount Washington, Black Mountain Range, Mount Bartlett, Mt. Kearsarge North, Black Cap (Cranmore Mountain).
This is a great place for people to both stay at home and enjoy the views while others go off shopping at the outlet stores (less than a mile away), or hiking (pick a mountain), or skiing.
The skiing mountains to choose from include Cranmore, Attitash, King Pine, Shawnee Peak, Black Mountain, Bretton Woods and Wildcat. A great feature during the winter months is the driveway is level and there is an attached two car garage so you don't slip and slide back to the rental! There is a mudroom and laundry area are off kitchen leading into two car garage. Master suite with views of Mount Kearsarge from your queen bed - 3/4 bath off of master. 1 bedroom has bunk beds and another has a single bed with trundle bed. There is a queen bed in the den that also has a fireplace. 1.5 miles from the old village of North Conway.
Carl and I live on the seacoast of New Hampshire and enjoy hiking, skiing, and sight seeing in the white mountains with our three children. Carl is an oceanographer with NOAA and I am a Realtor and reservist in the Coast Guard. When we are not on the Seacoast, we are either travelling to my parents on Cape Cod or heading up to the White Mountains.
Over the years we have rented homes on homeaway. In fact, we rented them in the White Mountains and while the homes were wonderful, we always wanted to be a little bit closer to the down town. This property has that and more.
Being just down the street from the outlet malls and under two miles from the Village of North Conway was wonderful and met our location needs, but to also have unobstructed panoramic views, and a quiet neighborhood were too much to pass up.
So as you can see, we bought the place for location...the condition was lacking! The house was a wonderful executive ranch with grand foyer and a two car garage, but it was dated. When we purchased the property, we rolled up our sleeves, did some work ourselves, and called a number of contractors :-)
The home now has mostly oak floors, two of three updated baths and all repainted walls. It has new drywall in some rooms, and new windows in others. We replaced the furnace and hot water tank and we moved the kitchen from what is now the Den to what was the dining room so that the house was more in tune with a family in the 21st century.
I hope you choose our home and enjoy it as much as we do. Whenever we have a chance to travel up north and sit on the covered porch, we sit there, looking at the views, and contemplate on how lucky we are to live in New England.
