Later this month we are thrilled to begin construction on a new mountainside timber frame home in the White Mountains region of New Hampshire, a popular destination area for second homeowners due to its four seasons of recreational opportunities, such as skiing, hiking, and biking. Some popular destinations in the region include the Flume, Mount Washington, Clark’s Trading Post, Bretton Woods, Loon Mountain, Cannon Mountain and so many more!
Our clients inquired last year after seeing our standard model for the Mountainside timber frame on our website and chose it as their base plan, customizing it with entertaining family and friends in mind. It is sure to be the ultimate ski home floor plan, with 6,200 square feet of living space and, to maximize space, additional living space in the finished basement. This mountainside timber frame home will surely be a beauty!
The exterior of the timber frame home features a combination of vertical and horizontal lap siding and a stone veneer accent on the lower level of the home. To maximize views of the nearby mountains, they planned an extensive wall of windows, without grilles, to ensure an unobstructed view. And an entry porch and a back deck expand the living space to the outdoors.
Check out this amazing timber frame floor plan below.
Now onto the fun part – the layout of this timber frame house! On the first floor the spacious floor plan of 2,567 square feet offers dual entrance options, via mudroom or by covered porch into the foyer. There’s a significant wow-effect upon entering through the foyer with the vaulted ceilings, and then, to the right is a large 26’X20′ great room and a 21’X15′ dining room. Both of these spaces have vaulted ceilings, with beautiful exposed wood beams, making the space feel even bigger than it is. The dining room opens into a large kitchen equipped with an island bar that seats up to 6, and a built-in desk area. What a great place to enjoy breakfast with the family while preparing a weekend brunch.
To the right of the kitchen is a powder room, laundry room, and a spacious master bedroom suite. The hallway in this wing of the house also leads to the mudroom and garage, likely the primary entrance for the homeowners.
Off the dining room and laundry room is a deck that will house a grill and hot tub. What ski house couldn’t use a hot tub, right?
The second floor is 1,235 square feet with 3 guest bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a hallway that looks down upon the lower living space – a perfect set up for family and friends staying for the weekend.
As noted above, this house includes a finished walkout basement space. Measuring at 2,420 square feet, there is a sizeable game room, large enough to include a pool table, air hockey game, darts, and a foosball table, and a large family room with an entertainment center, and even a ski room equipped with coat hooks and a helmet rack. What a great spot for family and friends of all ages to gather. There are also two guest bedrooms and a bathroom located in the basement, expanding the available sleeping space.
