Do you want a lake house? I do!

These clients came to me when they were ready to tear down their old lake house and rebuild a year-round residence in preparation for retirement. It’s actually pretty common that as people retire from their jobs in Massachusetts, they like to move to our Tax-Free state of New Hampshire. The lakes region offers a win-win environment of seasonal camps that are ready to be rebuilt.

We had to stay on the existing footprint, but we were allowed to pour a new foundation on three walls. What can I say, towns come up with the craziest rules but we have to play the game.

We ended up being able to build a three-bedroom, two-bath house with a master bedroom on the first floor so that they can age-in-place gracefully. There is a fantastic three to four season room off the living room and a massive deck in order to enjoy the view of the water and beautiful fall foliage.

By taking advantage of spectacular views and able to have all the water toys currently on the market, this couple is living the sweet life in their new lake house!
