About This Listing
Location is close to several ski areas North Conway NH one of them, restaurants, Stone Mountain Art Center, Saco River Canoeing, Kayaking and hiking, skiing, snowmobiling. Fishing is popular in winter and summer. The serene forest like yard is on a quiet pond.
This home is not your usual type place that a builder put together for profit. I began my trade as a carpenter and woodworker 43 years ago and have run my General contracting and remodeling company for almost as many years. It was with great pleasure that I started building this house for myself after many years of my main obligation being that of managing my company.
This home to me was a way to express myself and put to task all the things and idea's that I had contemplated over the years
Wireless internet password is in the book. Kayak & canoes may be used only when wearing life jackets.
The best thing about this house is, that although it is not very far from all the amenities we are used to, it offers an atmosphere where you can get away from the stressful life most of us live. Many times we have come here with the intentions of doing something or going somewhere and have decided to just stay put and enjoy our home. It's a place where you can get lost in yourself, it is quiet, peaceful, rain or shine it always seems to be a place to go and reconnect with yourself and your family.
Sorry no public transportation but taxi's are available from Fryeburg and North Conway. Courtesy vehicle may be available for those who may fly into fryeburg airport (KIZG) from Brice and Christine.
PLEASE no smoking inside. Read the information book regarding the tv operation. Remove your shoes on the soft pine floors and be gentle on the porcelain sinks & floor, & granite counters. Do not use the front door. Thanks.
The house is first class. It's spacious, light and Brice did a wonderful job building the details. We all noted that we need to make it back when the weather is warm and stay for a longer period of time.
What a great week! The house was lovely and we really appreciated the high quality detailing and construction (we're both architects). Great kitchen with everything one could need. Brice was so generous with his warm welcome and tour of the house. The location was quiet and secluded, great for quiet evenings by the fire after a day of skiing, and large enough that our party of 5 with two children were very comfortable. What a bonus that the pond flash-froze when we were there and we could skate on such beautiful ice! A truly memorable week and my children are already asking to return. Thanks.
We went for a 2-day trip in White Mountain and we voted that the house was the best part of the entire trip! The house was amazing - large, clean, well designed, impressive decorations. We had a wonderful time barbecue and relax and star gazing by the lake - the view was absolutely breathtaking! Brice and Christine were the kindest in the world, introduced the features of the house and prepared everything (including food in the fridge). We are already preparing to have another vacation there!!
It is apparent that a lot of thought and care went into building this quietly grand and yet, peaceful home.
The living area and one bedroom is located on the ground floor and each of the remaining two bedrooms on the top floor is accessed by a set of stairs at different entry points.
The house is very clean, comfortable, well maintained and offers not only modern, top of the range amenities, but the coffee and some supplies in the fridge add a nice touch.
It is set by the water offering gorgeous views, especially first thing in the morning. We welcomed the peaceful tranquility in the middle of our busy road trip. Local amenities, eg convenience store, eateries are a short drive away.
We didn't meet Christine in person, but found Brice to be very hospitable, and willing to help in any way he can. He gave good tips on what was around and worth a visit. His cheerful and friendly manner put us at ease as soon as we met. He even had a cheery fire happening in the fire pit outside. What a warm welcome ;)
If we find ourselves visiting the area again, we will be looking you up.
Thanks for sharing your lovely house, Brice and Christine.
The house was absolutely pitch perfect! It was clean and comfortable; the backyard had a wonderful view where we spent a considerable amount of time taking pictures! We wish we could have utilized the canoes and kayaks, but provides us another excuse to go back. Everything we could have asked for in a weekend getaway!
This is a very nice house, all of my friends love it, it has a beautiful view,
Wonderful experience! The house is beautiful and quite comfortable, as is the property. We particularly enjoyed sitting out in the hammock chairs in the gazebo. Brice was a wonderful host as well - we wound up getting in quite late due to traffic, but he met us in the wee hours of the morning with a smile and the grand tour. A+ - very much recommended.

About the Host, Brice And Christine
I am a renovation contractor and have had my business in the Boston area for 35 years. I started building this house in Brownfield Maine about nine years ago and have enjoyed the privilege of being able to utilize my skills and create something for my family and myself. It was a long difficult task but it has been extremely rewarding to see the end result. I am hoping to be able to share this beautiful home with new friends along with my family. When I was a kid my mother brought my sister and myself to the White Mountain area often so this region has been a large part of my childhood. I enjoy all the outdoor activities available here and I try to take advantage of most of them. This winter has been the best in years for skiing and snowmobiling (finally). In the summer we like to jet ski on the pond and canoe.
