Nestled in Bean Cove on Squam Lake, this 5,200-square-foot Adirondack home sits on 11 acres at the tip of a peninsula with spectacular views down Moultonborough Bay. The house has a grandfathered foot print just 10 feet from the water offering views of the lake from every room.
Built in 2003 using all organic materials including hand-hewn hemlock beams, cedar trees from Canada and local granite, this award winning home was featured in Ralph Kylloe's book Adirondack Home. The house has the feel of a classic Adirondack camp but the energy efficiency and state-of-the art systems to make year- round use problem free.
There are three bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms, another full bath with sauna, a bunkroom that sleeps six and an office that feels like it is perched over the lake which could be a forth bedroom. The master bedroom has a granite fireplace, screened porch, and the master bath features a 6-foot soaking tub with jets, a slate shower and built-in his and her wardrobes. The other bedrooms both open to a lakeside porch and have sleeping lofts. The kitchen is part of the Great Room and opens to a dining area and living room area with cathedral ceilings and a floor-to-ceiling granite fireplace.
There are outdoor decks and porches on the entire lakeside of the home with access from each room including an ingenious touch of triple hung custom windows that drop down into the walls to literally open the house to the lake. The entire 1,035' of shoreline is accessible with two west-facing docks which provide all day sun. Both docks are constructed from Palope wood, a Brazilian hardwood that lasts for 80 years. The grounds feature a lean-to with heat and electricity, a large granite cooking grill, an outdoor hot shower, a stone fire pit and a generator shed with firewood storage.
