Landscape can make the home special...Photo Gallery

Like many in the Real Estate profession I have seen spectacular homes and others that it would be cruel to confine prisoners too.

But rarely am I overly impressed with a landscape job.

Prepare to be wowed by these photos.

This is the stone stair case leading to the ski slopes, the master plan calls for use of natural material, and these huge stones were incorporated in to the landscape to access the Loon Mountain Ski Slopes from this house.

Another set of stairs that lead to the front door, and a massive retaining wall was required to build on this sloping site. The home owners wanted the best view they could get and that means getting to the top of the land.

It not all hard-scape the native plants , shrubs, flowers and mulch soften the stone and smell nice too.

Natural stone walkways add to the rustic feel of this new slope side home, and the irrigation system will keep the plants green and fragrant through the growing season.

The stone support collums and use of stone capping on the foundation walls blends the landscape with the decidely Adirondack Style Ski Home.

The finished home, is dramatic but at the same time fits in nice with the wooded surroundings. Thanks to Doug Weeman of Andrews Construction, in Campton New Hampshire for the tour, and for allowing me to post these photos.

There are many beautiful homes being built at South Peak Resot, on Loon Mountain and this is a fine example of the quality and care being taken to have a slope side home look natural for the setting.
