Located on the banks of Lake Winnipesaukee in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, this resort-like lodge is an elegant lakeside retreat with a rustic tone. The south facing 20,000-plus-square-foot home on Tips Cove includes a timber frame main house and a boathouse.
The Adirondack style home designed by Battle Architects and built by Wood & Clay strikes a balance between natural materials and artisanal craftsmanship. Gable roofs are supported by rock pillars and dramatic curved trusses.
The exterior material palette is natural and is comprised of river rock, skirl siding, red cedar shingles and Douglas fir timber frame. The interior material palette is warm and offers a medley of wood species such as butternut, oak, hickory, birch bark, cherry, Douglas fir, and mahogany.
Although the property is grand in scale, intimate spaces throughout the home take full advantage of the serene setting. The veranda overlooking the water and the light-filled double height great room are oriented to enjoy the lake view.
