The Fanciest Boathouse on Cool Houses Daily

Photo by: Zillow This three-bay boathouse features the same fine craftsmanship as the rest of the Arts and Crafts-style estate, set on 2,349 feet on frontage on Lake Winnipesaukee.

You know you’re living in luxury when your boathouse is as nice as most people’s entire homes. Built in 2006 by a top Microsoft executive, this Arts and Crafts-style estate features a three-slip boathouse with a stone exterior, an elegantly curving roofline and a secluded wooded setting. That’s just a preview of the high-end design found throughout the rest of the home.

Set on 58 acres with 2,349 feet of frontage on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire, the estate offers a whopping 17,000 square feet of living space, including a 30-foot great room, an indoor spa, a 15-seat theater and a wine cellar. The home was constructed with incredible attention to detail; stone masons were on site for more than two years, handling each rock five or six times before setting it in its final place, while the curved railings and moldings were hand-chiseled to match the angles of the walls.

Guests of the estate get to enjoy their very own wing, complete with a kitchen, a living area, three bedrooms and an elevator. In 2007, then-French President Nicolas Sarkozy vacationed here for three weeks, so the home has been Secret Service certified. You can’t say that about too many properties!
