From the first time the family of five crossed the bridge on to Governor’s Island in Lake Winnipesaukee they knew it was the perfect place to build the year-round home they longed for. Patience and perseverance paid off when they found a spectacular waterfront parcel with amazing views, a long waterfront edge and perfect solar orientation.

The six-bedroom house was made for entertaining.  The open concept of the living, dining, and kitchen, all with views to the water, allows for large gatherings of friends and family. 

The kitchen showcases a coffered ceiling, a multi-functional island with a built-in banquette with seating for six, and an alcove office space for planning daily activities.

It was important for family and friends to feel welcomed in the home. A guest suite, accessed by a private stair, was created over the 3-car garage. The comfortable space features a sitting area, a bunkroom for kids, a bedroom for adults, separate bathrooms and a dressing closet – making for a relaxing retreat, whether it be for a weekend or an extended stay.
