From the Zillow listing:


ELY LAKEHOUSE- Elegant, spectacularly renovated home with water access and stunning views of Lake Fairlee. The house sits on nearly 3 acres on the southwestern corner of the lake overlooking a protected loon sanctuary. Lake Fairlee itself is a perfect size at 544 acres of tranquil water and hosts some of the better-known summer camps in the region. Formerly owned by Ely Goddard– founder of the local Ely Copper Mines– the house was moved to its current location in the early 1900s and has been carefully renovated from top to bottom over the past several years. The interiors are warm and sophisticated with high ceilings on both levels and radiant heating on the first floor. Beautiful cherry and black walnut flooring throughout with butternut paneling. The kitchen is spacious and features modern custom cabinetry, a large central island with ample seating, and premium appliances. Entertain guests in the formal dining room off the great room or cozy up to the central tiled fireplace on chilly nights. With 5 well-appointed bedrooms on the second level– all of which flank a magical central circular hall with rose glass ceiling– there is plenty of room for family and friends. Take in views of the water, landscaped and wooded grounds, and timber-frame barns from a lovely wraparound balcony on the second floor. Easy access to the property from the interstate- a short ride to Dartmouth College, and the rest of the Upper Valley. Twilight photos are virtually enhanced. Showings start 6/25.
