NEW HAMPSHIRE COTTAGE FOR SALE
Lakeside Retreat on Perkins Pond
in Sunapee, New Hampshire
Are you dreaming of owning a New Hampshire cottage, either for weekend getaways… or to call home?
Do your dreams include a lake, perennial gardens, a deck, beautiful views, woods, solitude, stone paths and stone walls, as well as
a comfy cottage?
If so, your dreams can come true…
Warmth and charm abound in this year-round welcoming retreat on Perkins Pond in Sunapee, New Hampshire. (Did you see Oprah’s interview of Steven Tyler at his home in Sunapee, NH?) Nestled in a rural, wooded setting, this property offers 96’ of lake-frontage for you to experience the allure of Perkins Pond (a hidden gem of a lake), and enjoy everything the lake has to offer:tranquility, excellent fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing and more… The area surrounding the cove is home to loons and ducks, with the call of the loons adding to the allure of this magical spot.
While the home is not large (just under 900 square feet), the main living areas are more than ample: there is a large eat-in kitchen (240 sq. ft.) and a living room of just less than 300 square feet. Both rooms have beautiful lake views. But… it’s on the large wraparound deck or the inviting, south-facing porch (with a window-wall facing the lake) where you will spend your time during 3 seasons of the year.
In addition to the closed-in porch, rooms in the home include the kitchen, living room, a mud room, full bath with tub and shower, and 2 bedroom: the master bedroom accommodates a queen-size bed and has a full closet the width of an entire wall; the smaller bedroom has a trundle bed.
The property consists of over an acre of land. The yard just in front of the cottage is planted with mature perennials. The back yard boasts perennial gardens, a stone path and an over-sized outbuilding. This outbuilding is currently used for storage, but its use is limited only by your imagination.
A large grassy area ambles down to the lakefront and the private sandy beach, the perfect place to launch your kayak or canoe. Enjoy swimming, kayaking, boating and fishing in the summer, and ice skating, ice fishing and snowmobiling in the winter.
Located only 3 miles from Sunapee harbor and less than 15 minutes to Mt. Sunapee, this property is a bit off the beaten path, while at the same time close to everything. Shopping in nearby New London is less than 15 minutes away. It’s a 30-minute drive to Hanover/Lebanon and 40 minutes to Concord.
