SUMMERTIME AND THE LIVIN IS EASY...A WATERFRONT RETREAT ON THE BANKS OF THE MERRIMACK RIVER! A mid-century home exquisitely enhanced and substantially enlarged...the personal residence of a pre-eminent New Hampshire builder. From the moment you enter this iconic neighborhood, you sense the spirit of community. Drive past pristine properties with manicured yards and arrive at a Craftsman-inspired masterpiece with copper and stone accents. Pass under a portico with barrel-ceiling into the foyer. Turn the corner and prepare to be mesmerized by the view! Imagine preparing meals in the chef s kitchen, chatting with friends at the enormous island and over their shoulders, through huge windows, watching the river go by. An expansive great room with vaulted ceiling and reclaimed beams flows seamlessly into open space for dining. Spend chilly evenings in the two-story family room, warmed by the floor-to-ceiling, stone fireplace. Spanning the the back of the house are a deck and patio. Gather around the fire-pit and while away the hours as the river flows gently by. At day s end, ascend the stairs, peek into two generous bedrooms before retiring to a world-class master suite with spa-like bathroom, walk-in closet and adjoining loft with windows that frame the moonlit water and twinkling stars. A partially finished basement offers future expansion possibilities. A shed is the ideal place for your hobbies or better yet...hop on your boat and let the adventure begin! PARADISE FOUND!
