Video of 60 Ruppert Rd | Moultonborough, New Hampshire waterfront real estate & homes
http://www.NicoleWatkins.com - Nestled on a level lot at the end of a paved road with a long cobblestone lined driveway, this NH waterfront property has many unique features that have to be seen to be appreciated. The careful siting and abutting woodlands of this finely detailed craftsman style home affords unusual privacy. Located on Kona's Gold Coast, this sandy bottom cove at 60 Ruppert Road is ideal for swimming and the gentle, natural sugar sand waterfront is ideal for easy access in and out of Lake Winnipesaukee.
A charming separate guest studio is sited along the cobblestone driveway for privacy and its own lake view. The guest studio has radiant heat, ¾ bath, kitchenette, and its own attached garage. Though less formal, the architecture and finish of the guest studio is informed by that of the main home with a distinct mission influence. A manicured lawn and gardens create a colorful park like setting for both the main home and guest studio.
The main home's angled front entry has extra deep closets and leads to an entertaining area with a wet bar that serves as a transition room from arriving. The entertaining area opens to the living room with a vaulted ceiling and floor-to-ceiling fireplace with carved wood niches to display collectibles. The floor to ceiling Pella windows provide panoramic water views with beautiful sunsets. The upscale fan blends with the simple yet elegant mission style of the home. Thoughtful placement of the corner fireplace allows people gathered in the living room to enjoy views of both the fireplace and the lake at the same time. The warm, red birch floors are present throughout the entire first level and are a perfect complement to the austere lines of this mission influenced house. With only slight exception throughout the house, including the dining room, there are no views of the neighbors due to the careful siting of the house and the placement of the windows. The deep window sills in the dining room allow plant lovers to display plants easily in the windows. The pull down screens in the Pella windows allow the easiest transition from windows to screens. The dining room has a barrel ceiling that matches the curve of the top windows, while large windows on two sides of the dining room give you the feeling of dining right on the lake!
The kitchen has granite countertops with ample room for cooking and top of the line double ovens with warming drawer. The cabinets are custom to within 1". The cabinetry includes cabinets made specifically for lids, trays, spice storage, coffee, and just about anything you would want in a kitchen. Satin nickel fixtures dazzle against the warm red birch wood and best of all, don't show smudges. The walk-in pantry has 11 feet of counter space and additional cabinets with under cabinet lighting.
The master suite on the main level has 2 closets in the hall leading to the master bedroom and private sun porch. The forest on one side provides privacy and wilderness beauty, while the 4 season sun room brings in views of the lake. In the master bath, double vanities are situated for maximum privacy. The compartmentalized toilet has a large linen closet. The granite of the countertops matches the exterior trim of the Roman shower, which has marble tile on the interior.
The sun room brings in the west, slightly southwest sunlight. Sun bounces off the bead board ceiling and the slate light fixtures and again the siting of the home paired with the unique location of the lot, gives you exquisite privacy.
An office, powder room and laundry room complete the first floor living space. The calm beauty of the home is felt in all of these rooms.
Upstairs the sleeping loft trundle beds is perfect for overflow company. The upstairs loft is divided by the wide stairwell. An office space allows a view over the loft to the lake beyond and and also opens to a TV lounge. The woodlands bedroom looks over the woods as the name suggests and has an ensuite bath with a Scandanavian lounge style shower with a tilt back seat. The fixtures are allo Kohler and the pump style faucet in the woodlands bath is set in a special, molded sink that has the same Scandanavian flavor as the shower.
The lakeside bedroom has lovely lake views and has a bath that is ensuite and also shared with the sleeping lounge. A small craft room off the main office completes the upstairs finished lving space. A 580 square foot nearly finished room awaits the final touches to become a game room or family room of your dreams.
