Fulfilling a Dream on Golden Pond

SQUAM LAKE, NH

The clients have enjoyed a long family history on Squam lake and wished to create a year-round home which would preserve as much of the surrounding natural beauty as possible. The Bensonwood team provided design and construction to comply with rigorous lake front and site requirements while also fulfilling an ambitious program of client desires. Bensonwood’s design team collaborated with the clients on every aspect of their home, assuring that it would harmonize with the surroundings while creating the tranquil and high quality living space the clients desired. Bensonwood’s project managers, craftspeople and site supervisors implemented all aspects of construction from permitting and ground breaking to final coordination of local subcontractors.
