New Hampshire Home July-August 2023 - 29

FROM THE EDITOR
Down by the Water
IN AN EARLIER ISSUE, I shared in this space that a highlight of my childhood summers
was spending time at our rustic family cabin on Wheelwright Pond in Lee. My sisters and I
would rush to greet our cousins, and all of us would take turns rowing our dinghy across the
small lake or, if a motor boat was available, try our hand at water-skiing. Dinner out at Yokun's
Restaurant in Portsmouth was always a treat, followed by nearby fireworks if it happened to be
Fourth of July weekend. Rye Beach was another favorite destination, but only on really hot days
when the frigid ocean water brought relief.
When I was in college, I had a summer job waitressing at a modest restaurant on the strip in
Hampton Beach. Sleep deprived from having way too much fun on my nights off, I remember
grudgingly serving eggs and pancakes to early-rising families, as I chomped at the bit to race
onto the beach and work on my tan.
Decades have passed, and now I find myself logistically able to appreciate a New Hampshire
summer once again, in part through the eyes of those fortunate to have a residence near one of
its many lakes or 18-mile-long seacoast. The homes in this issue range from cozy to commanding,
but they all have one thing in common: proximity to the water.
" It's a magical place where we get to enjoy the area's natural beauty and also a sense of
togetherness, " says the homeowner of " Evergreen, " a house that's become a multigenerational
gathering spot on Lake Winnipesaukee (page 76). It's a sentiment echoed by legions of families
who have ties to the 72-square-mile lake or one of its many smaller cousins. These pristine bodies
of fresh water draw people to their serenity and the simple rhythm of life they foster; people
like Diane and Tom Sullivan, who purchased a cottage on Lake Sunapee that cried out for TLC,
and which, with Bonin Architects and Bennett Builders, they gave it in spades (page 88).
Those I know who have houses near the ocean wax poetic about the sound of the surf and the
sheer awesomeness of its endless horizon. You'd be hard pressed to find a more amazing vista
than the one Samantha and Joe Faro enjoy from their palatial home in Seabrook (page 64). TMS
Architects' large conservatory expansion of the house provides 270-degree water views of the
ocean, the Hampton River inlet and the bay. And if you can turn your gaze away from the water,
amenities include an outdoor kitchen and dining area, sitting area, hot tub, infinity-edge pool,
large outdoor gas fire pit, and numerous fire sconces and bowls.
Wherever your summer plans take you-to a lake, the ocean or just your own backyard-I
wish you pleasant days in the company of family and friends.
