This 6,363-square-foot residence is on a site with exquisite mountain views. The architect took advantage of this with sitting as well as exterior and interior spaces that are designed to “open up” the home to the mountains beyond. Highlights of the Douglas fir, timber-framed home include expansive decks; covered and screened porches; a large patio area with an outdoor fieldstone; a porte cochère; a seven-foot-high granite boulder serving as the center point for the driveway turnaround.
A landscape design featuring indigenous plants and trees to prevent erosion; an open plan interior with a two-story native stone fireplace anchoring the great room; a balcony reading room; a master bedroom suite; custom-stained cherry floors; a climate-controlled wine storage room; and sustainable design elements and systems throughout, allowing the home to exceed New Hampshire’s Energy Star requirements.
