The Lake House is built into the hillside in three living levels: the main level (entered from under the porte cochere linking the house and the garage) follows the open-living concept of Two-Family Guest House; the Upper level (entered from the flower and vegetable gardens and exercise room which sits on top of the porte cochere); and, the Lower Level with access to the lower level patio, gardens, beach and boathouse. All three levels are connected by a spiral wormy chestnut staircase, with wrought iron railings by Mike Connolly, and a small 4 person elevator. The 3,000+ foot, 3 story Art Studio (serviced with a second elevator – this one is a 3,000 pound industrial type) shares the site with the Main House, with a two car attached Garage and garden/crafts, firewood rooms, and with a Boathouse. The home and the Main Level revolve around an over-the-top kitchen by Zarse Custom Cabinets. The Kitchen is the meal-driven hub of the Lake House. It is surrounded by a TV and reading area, a dining area, a two story, balconied living room with another of the Larry Smart fireplaces (two stories on the main floor, and one more story below), a two person family office, a walk-in pantry, and a powder room. Also on this level is the master bedroom suite with includes a master bath, a laundry room, and a double walk-in closet. The kitchen, the living room and the master bedroom all open on to a partially covered wraparound porch with direct southern exposures of Jockey Cove, the Broads, the Islands and the White Mountains. The Upper Level includes a state of the art exercise room, a library and reading area, two guest bedroom suites and a walk out balcony reachable from the library and one of the guest suites. | Key Features - · 200 feet of waterfront with raised sand beach and granite steps to sandy bottom of the Lake. · Approximately 6000 feet of quality construction including extraordinary wood inlays, cherry moldings and straight grained fir beams and doors · Wormy chestnut floors throughout the house reclaimed from 200 year old barn raised in Ohio · 3000+ square foot Arts Studio with industrial elevator · Oversized, 2 car attached garage with extra space for gardening supplies, flower arranging, firewood storage, golf clubs, and extra food storage · Lite Touch Smarthouse electrical system throughout the property for remote control from anywhere within the house or within cell phone reach · Crestron Smarthouse controls throughout for heat, air conditioning, entertainment and even windows · 1500 square feet of Ipe decking wrapping around the front and side of the house and on the Upper Level Deck · Custom wrought iron and stonework both inside and outside the house Waterfront Features · Southern exposure from 200+ feet of waterfront · Oversized two bay boathouse with custom mahogany closets throughout · Mahogany Dock · Lakeside lawn · Lakeside patio · Perched beach with granite steps and wrought iron railing to sandy bottom
