THE Race Mountain house
High on the slopes of Mount Race, this spacious 4-bedroom villa offers sweeping east-facing views. In the early hours, the house floods with morning light and sunrises are spectacular. The inviting, creative design invokes a true sense of retreat. The open floor plan centers on a great room, with cathedral ceilings, large fireplace, sunken seating area, and generous windows facing the eastern views. The well-appointed kitchen easily accommodates the hustle and bustle of preparing meals for large gatherings.
Special touches are sprinkled throughout the house, from the family-heirloom Steinway baby grand piano to the stylishly recycled copper chandelier above the dining table. Perhaps best of all, climb a ladder, treehouse-style, from the airy common area on the second floor to reach the loft. Wall-to-wall cushions invite cuddling, movie watching, or the creation of an imaginary kid’s fort. Two decks, one on each level, and a screened porch provide space to entertain in the fresh air or to look out at the stars.
The house comfortably sleeps 15 people and many of the Race Brook Lodge amenities, including the outdoor swimming pool, are available for Mountain House guests to share. Guests also have access to the beautiful surrounding land and hiking trails.
