A quick glance at this rugged-yet-elegant home reveals its meticulous attention to detail, its artful mix of sophisticated touches and a very rustic flavor. Set on two pristine acres in the exclusive Mount Washington Valley resort area in Intervale, New Hampshire, the custom log home not only affords breathtaking mountain views, you can hear the romantic whistle of the local tour train in the distance.
Though hailed as top-notch ski country, the owners wanted to create a place that would enable them to enjoy this magical area through every season. A referral led them to Wisconsin-based Golden Eagle Log Homes and to Richard Leavitt of Leavitt Contracting in Fryeburg, Maine, who happens to own a log home of his own.
“I met with the couple from the beginning stages,” recalls Richard. “I served as both their general contractor and builder, but I also helped them choose a design that would be best suited for a sloping lot and would allow them to gain maximum exposure.”
