Owners' Perspective: Why we love 5361 Peninsula Rd

Why We Love 5361 Peninsula Rd.
This house is truly a "home". It is a nature lover's dream. Every window has a spectacular view- a lovely lake on one side, woods on two sides, and a view of Song Mountain (ski resort) on fourth side. There are gardens in the front and side with flowers blooming each season. The change of seasons is great to watch, with bright green in the spring and soft oranges in the fall. Even though the ceilings soar, it still feels intimate and cozy, especially on a rainy or snowy day. We've added a room with three walls of windows, updated kitchen (custom cabinets and granite counters), finished basement, propane gas stove in living room with fieldstone mantle and beautiful landscaping. I've never loved a "home" as much as this one, and will be sad to leave.
From the road, the house is rather modest looking; from the lake it reminds me of a Swiss chalet, with its many windows and peaked roofs. The living room is comfortable and warm looking, with its cathedral ceiling and Norwegian gas stove nestled in its fieldstone alcove. I enjoy playing pool in the finished rec-room downstairs, which is adjacent to my well-lighted, rather spacious wood shop. My favorite past-time, however, is puttering around outdoors, trimming trees (Blue Spruce, Austrian Pines, Ash and Oak trees) and mowing the lawn (1.5 acres). On summer evenings I thoroughly enjoy sitting with my wife on the beach, talking together and listening to the many birds singing their goodnight songs. We also enjoy having dinner together in the "sitting room" while we gaze at the lake through windows on the north side, or the woods through windows on the east, or the front lawn through windows on the south. We love the beauty and the quiet serenity we have here; the noisiest sounds are those of the Canada geese on their way south in the Autumn.
