Creating a new old house incoprporates the comforts of a modern home with the character elements of an old home. At 76 Veasey Shore Road Meredith, NH also known as "Fenway House" the Seller worked with Frank Demoree, an Effingham, NH custom home builder to develop the character of her new old house, which was finished in 2006, but looks as if it might have been on its beautiful site on Lake Winnipesaukee forever.
Some of the people who have toured Fenway House on Lake Winnipesaukee, immediately recognize it as being based on a new old house in Russell Versaci's "The New Old House. A Classic home for Modern Living published by Taunton Press.
76 Veasey Shore Road is sited on a sprawling 5 plus acre lot with 237 feet of meandering waterfront that includes waterfront in a cove immediately to the right of 'Hornets Nest Point" a jutting peninsula and rock formation that can be found on Lake Winnipesaukee charts in a part of the lake where crystal clear waterfront and long lake and mountain views are two of the predominant features.
The expansive water views and meandering shoreline are the perfect setting for the new old house that is sited here. The shingle style home has a sprawling floor plan, well suited to entertaining and relaxed summer living. The shingle style house itself is a freestyle mix of details. The first floor at 76 Veasey Shore Road has coffered ceilings and wainscoting with thick trim detail and thick custom made railings for the wide stairway with hickory floors that leads to the second floor. Five major columns support the high ceiling of the open concept first floor, which still has intimate spaces for guests or family to gather. Everything in the home at 76 Veasey Shore has character that is thick and rich..... deep and warm, inviting and compelling and well suited to the Lake Winnipesaukee shorefront on which the home is sited.
One of the pieces the Seller of 76 Veasey Shore Road, Meredith used to add the finishing touches to the Master Bedroom of this Frank Demoree built home, is an art nouveau mantel for the Master Suite's gas fireplace. The graceful and striking antique mantel comes from a raised mansion in Delaware.The hand painted and hand glazed Cerullian blue fish tiles on the mantel are juxtaposed to the mantel's blonde oak wood. The fish theme is carried throughout the home, and includes, fish tiles in one of the bathrooms. In the Master Bedroom, a custom book case is built around the antique mantel to cover the entire wall with a gallery shelf at the top. The hearth is travertine marble and weighs about nine hundred pounds.For a 10 page color brochure on the beautiful details of this unique home at 76 Veasey Shore Road, Meredith, NH, contact Nicole Watkins, Exclusive Listing Agent at (603) 707-7575.
