The homeowners purchased this beautiful 4,800 SQFT Gilford NH lakefront home and wanted to make it work well for their family and lifestyle. As the home was 20+ years old, the goal of this project was to completely renovate the interior and exterior. An open concept design was planned to improve the flow on the first floor.
The Success Story
The entire exterior of this home was updated with durable, low maintenance products. Tando Beachhouse Shake Siding complements the evergreen aluminum fascia and soffits. TIVA PVC decking and Key-Link Fencing black cable railings transform this lakeside deck. Custom painted TruExterior exterior trim around the windows and entry doors match the fascia and soffits.
Previously, when you walked through the front door there was an obstructed view of Lake Winnipesaukee. This was due to a loft that covered half of the living space. We removed the loft area and completely re-framed the gable wall. Now, when you enter the home, all you see is a dramatic view of the lake.
The kitchen was completely redesigned with a new layout. The slate blue Viking range and wall oven are a favorite of the client. Along with the Cambria quartz countertops.
Additionally, a screened porch was built off the kitchen. This provides a wonderful outdoor entertaining space. Especially, during the buggy season in NH!
The expansive deck on this home was built with TIVADEK Chestnut PVC decking. Key-Link cable railings give the deck a clean, modern look without sacrificing the 180 degree lake views.
Karndean Luxury Vinyl Plank, a waterproof, durable and resilient flooring, was used throughout the lower level including the bathrooms. Vinyl plank is a great choice for high traffic areas. Especially, where friends and family are coming in and out of the house from the lake and the yard.
On the lower level there was an existing guest bathroom, with unfinished space behind the bedroom. To maximize the space, we opted to add an en suite bathroom to create a full guest suite.
The last stop on our lower level tour are the two home offices. Due to remote work, the professional homeowners both wanted custom spaces. Collaborating with Decorative Interiors, we designed and built two unique spaces fitting each homeowner’s personality and style.
