Nature's splendor surrounds New Hampshire lakefront home

Imagine owning your own lakefront retreat where your vacation never ends! The spacious, contemporary home at 56 North Broad Bay Road in Freedom, N.H., is nestled along the shores of Broad Bay, directly off Lake Ossipee, so you can enjoy swimming, fishing, boating or just relaxing along the sandy shore.

This pristine home boasts 100 feet of lake frontage and features three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including two fantastic master bedroom suites. It also has an abundance of entertaining space, both inside and outside, and an attached two-car garage, which is a necessity during New England winters.

Upon arriving at the home, residents and guests are greeted by the splendor of nature and lovely landscaping. Mature trees provide a beautiful backdrop to the home, while vegetation and wildflowers are plentiful.

Inside, the family room is the first of many spots for entertaining year-round. It features a fieldstone hearth and soapstone-surround wood stove and a gorgeous vaulted wood ceiling that leads up to the loft space.

The large, open-concept kitchen features lovely wood cabinetry, an abundance of counter space and sleek black appliances. It’s open to the dining room, which also has vaulted ceilings. It’s a great spot to enjoy meals with family and friends.

A glassed-in three-season porch, just off the living room, offers stunning views of the surrounding White Mountains and the sunset over Broad Bay.

And, you have your choice of master bedrooms — one downstairs and one upstairs, as well as an additional guest room that is spacious and bright. The home also has a first-floor laundry area and a walkout basement.

Back outside, there are so many additional features as well. There is a large deck for outdoor entertaining and summer barbecues, a heated boathouse on the water with electricity and a dock. The property also has newly landscaped paver walls and a retaining wall along the beach.
