"Luxury camping" is how an early client of mine described his new Winnipesaukee home. That feeling which he and his family experience through the subtle interaction of the home's architecture and the forest environment. The imaginative design features incorporating oversize timbers, roughly dressed limbs, peeled bark sheathing, branch work patterns on porch railings and imaginative woodland furniture.
These features encompass the "Adirondack Style", dating back to the 1880s in upstate New York and now found from the Rocky Mountain West to our own New Hampshire Lakes Region.The sweeping verandas, wide staircases and overlarge windows invite the homeowner to become part of the natural setting and provide a sense of new adventure each day. I encourage you to consider embracing a truly unique lifestyle, one which will be treasured by each family member all of their days. The unmistakable style allows nooks and corners of the home to become personalized while sleeping and napping porches allow the experience of becoming part of the natural activities of lake life. Late at night owl hoots, early morning loon calls and afternoon breezes are among everyone's favorites.
In the lakes region there are several builders specializing in Adirondack style homes and examples of their work abound. Their creativity imparts a never to be forgotten sense of discovery to those searching for a unique second home experience. After all every man and woman carries in their mind the image of the ideal place, the one true home. For myself I'll take a secluded Adirondack style home nestled into the shoreline of Lake Winnipesaukee or one of the other beautiful lakes in New Hampshire.
