The above is a Yankee Barn home that is located on Lake Champlain but they call it the Sunapee Cottage. Lake Sunapee is in New Hampshire and it’s a crystal clear lake. Yankee Barn builders are located in Grantham which is close to Lake Sunapee. This would be a dream home to have on Lake Sunapee.
It’s an open beam type home and just beautiful.
I like the U shape of the kitchen and the island. The open concept for the dining room and great room is nice and then there is even a pantry and a nice size laundry room. The master bedroom is on the first floor.
The second floor is nice with 2 bedrooms and an office, plus storage.
To me, this would be a dream summer home that would stay in the family for ever and ever passed down through generations. An investment worth gold that would only increase in value if carefully maintained.
My other dream home, the Yankee Barn home called the Craftsbuy cottage, would be more affordable and the taxes would be less if it wasn’t on a lake front. It would be nice to have close to a lake and then the taxes would be less. Location is everything on the value of the house. If it was near walking trails, close to shopping and a place where you could earn a decent income.
A private, spring fed pond like the one above would be kind of nice.
To have a kitchen, dining room and then the French doors to a pagoda with the outdoor table like above would be like the most awesome dream.
Then the indoor dining room is awesome.
I like the dining room with the chandelier and the built in cabinets.
On this idea, they did the pagoda on the side of the house off the kitchen. And the whole area is a patio. I love it.
Just a few ideas on what would be dream material.
