Lake Access In All 4 Seasons! 830 US Route 3 Holderness
Having options can be overwhelming, but when it comes to living in the Northeast, having options is key. You want to enjoy all four seasons to the best of your ability and what better way to do that than in a home that is within minutes of where you want to be, at all times, in all seasons. Enter Twin Pines, a throwback to yesteryear with its Main Street shotgun style and more options than you can shake a stick at. The story of this home includes a life as the local post office, where it would churn out the mail, and load it into a charming wooden boat to be delivered to all the island properties on Squam Lake. Yes, the same Squam Lake that was the setting of the film “On Golden Pond“. That movie is one of the reasons this area is so loved, and who wouldn’t love a slice of heaven that can be enjoyed all year round?!
Aside from summer fun on the lake, you can find folks exploring by ski, dogsled and snowmobile in the winter too. Plus with the advent of the fat tire bike you can see folks pedaling along as well in the colder months. As a vacation destination you will have wonderful rental potential all year; being within walking distance to restaurants and shops. The Squam Lakes Natural Science Center and the Squam Lakes Association are just up the road, plus the town library and gas station are a stones throw – but no throwing stones here, only skipping rocks. If you wish to rent the property out it is very easy to find, and your guests will love the charm and location.
The driveway cuts in close to the house and places you between the home and the garage, where you are able to store your toys, whether water or otherwise. Past owners have stored their snowmobiles in there, allowing easy access down the lane to the ice covered lake and off into the winter wonderland that is New Hampshire in February. Its also a great place to store your kayaks, or maybe store supplies for the Main Street shop you have located in the front of the house. The location would be perfect for that – there is a sidewalk across the street with great walking traffic in the high tourist town.
The attic, or loft. was recently finished adding prime living space with views of the lake from both ends. In summers past a theater troupe has taken over the space during their stint showcasing their talent in summer theater productions. Did you know that the Little Church Theater is also within walking distance of Twin Pines? Offering an array of performances throughout the warmer months, this gem of a venue puts on some of the best shows in the area.
If you’re looking for additional culture and more Main Street flare, you’re only five minutes from Plymouth, home to Plymouth State University. Here you will find a quaint Main Street, complete with a common decorated for all occasions, shops, restaurants, music venues and lots of history. The Silver Center for the Arts offers a year round schedule of events, from book readings to dance troupes, plus a yearly winter production worthy of a Tony complete with a star studded cast of locals and the occasional professional actor. The long standing Chase Street Market, host of Cafe Monte Alto and Biedermans Deli & Pub is a staple, as well as the place to purchase your bus ticket to Boston on Concord Coach Lines.
There is simply more to experience and see here in the Squam Area than I could possibly convey, so you’ll have to experience it for yourself! Come with an open mind, meet the people, fall in love with the area and jump right in with this lovely home at 830 US Route 3 Holderness NH. Call (603) 210-4444 today for a private showing!
