Property of the Week: The perfect home for the active lifestyle

If you seek panoramic mountain views and sunshine, 25 North Ledge Road in Bartlett is the place to be.

On a 3.26-acre lot, a stone's throw from the National Forest, this beautiful home has hosted many family gatherings. Designed for entertaining and comfort, the home boasts a large great room, a separate family room for a game of pool, a movie night or just time to look at the stars. With another separate enclosed porch that the family set up as a game room, there is room to spread. You can accommodate the extended family or your ski team!

With a central location in the Mount Washington Valley only minutes to Jackson Village and Story Land, this North Ledge home is close to downhill and cross country skiing, hiking in the nearby White Mountain National Forest, biking, kayaking, golfing and shopping in nearby North Conway.

The spacious kitchen has plenty of room for multiple chefs, abundant storage, a separate menu planner/desk area and a huge island with room to seat six hungry guests. Chefs will love the convenience of pull out shelves, double ovens, the bar sink in the island, the greenhouse window over the sink and best of all, the wide open views.

Off the kitchen is the entry from the attached three-car garage, a huge plus year-round, but a boon in our White Mountain winters. It provides room for vehicle storage, winter toys and direct dry access into the house. The entry doubles as a mud room/laundry room with yet more cabinet storage, a sink and coat closet.

Add the powder room for guests and it's the perfect design for the active lifestyle we live here in the Mount Washington Valley. Speaking of guests, there is also an oversized lovely foyer to welcome guests in from the front farmer's porch.

The southerly facing house was designed to take advantage of the mountain views from each living area and the bedrooms. Designed for one-level living, the house boasts a main level master suite with more beautiful views and a large master bath with a double vanity, large whirlpool tub, shower and large walk-in closet. It's your own private retreat when you decide to go to bed early and leave the night owls to enjoy a good movie.

The wide-open great room is highlighted by a large granite fireplace made with granite taken from the property. Enjoy the stunning views of Cranmore and Attitash Ski Areas, a spacious dining area with a built-in china cabinet with glass front upper cabinets for display and stemware storage and a patio door to the deck. On sunny days the solar gain is like money in the bank!

The walk-out lower level, features three bedrooms, an office and a den with sliders to a patio for star gazing or sun bathing. Every room has a huge mountain view. The lower level also has 1 full bath, a ¾ bath and a half bath.

Two large hall closets offer great storage or they can function as owners closets if you decide to rent. The location, views, size and privacy are prized by homeowners and vacation renters as well. This makes a great full-time or vacation home and if you're looking for a rental property, this one has it all.
