The owner of this mountain-side home requested plenty of space to accommodate visits by children and grandchildren, yet have a cozy feel for a quiet weekend for two. The northerly view of Franconia Notch is a spectacular panorama, but the south light, especially in winter, could not be shaded out. A dumbwaiter guarantees tidiness, bringing wood up to the Rumsford fireplace. A double kitchen lets grand-kids join in the cooking and baking. The turret-tower brings southern light into the north-facing kitchen. Structural concrete floor in the garage makes space below for a wine cellar, emergency generator and snowmobile storage below. Finishes are mostly custom, including 2¼ Alder wood doors (7-4 tall), Alder cabinetry, inlaid rustic slate in the foyer, maple helical stair and curved main stair. The hot-tub on the enclosed deck enjoys a gas fireplace and pyramid skylight. 2×10 wall studs were used to easily withstand the harsh wind conditions on this high mountainside site. The small roadside façade tucks this large home into a neighborhood of more modest homes.
