More than just vacation homes, present-day log cabins represent an attractive option as a first home, with standards of comfort which you won't ever want to leave.
Today we are going to explore a custom-built log home known as South Carolina 2310AR. It was designed and constructed by esteemed builders Golden Eagle Log Homes and is a wonderful representation of the standards which can be achieved when building with wood. Attractive on the outside, incredible on the inside - with a few secrets which you will love to discover.
Located in New Hampshire, this beautiful log construction effortlessly blends into the woodland surroundings and captures sweeping panoramic views of the White Mountains.
This inviting cabin houses three bedrooms and three bathrooms over 2,310 square feet (214.6 square meters). It's the perfect living space for a family or as a weekend retreat for a party of adults.
This custom log home is built over two stories, with a parking garage on the lower level and a great panoramic vista from the upper floor.
Set in two acres of pristine wilderness, this custom-built home has a unique and brilliant floor plan. Let's step inside and take a look...
Immediately upon entering we were blown away by the high-quality use of wood throughout the home. It has many individual features, giving the home a character of its own with a rugged elegance.
The dramatic great room is finished with an exquisite use of high-quality materials. The open plan living room, kitchen and dining room is a majesty of wood and stone - stunning!
The great room’s soaring cathedral ceiling and large windows draw in plenty of natural light and serve breathtaking views in every season. The 22-foot (6.7-meter) fireplace is a rugged anchor to this tastefully decorated living room.
The open plan great room has the kitchen at the back. The soaring cultured-stone cooker hood bookends this room perfectly - acting as a visual counterweight to the fireplace directly opposite.
The kitchen countertops are finished with a vivid Brazilian granite. The beautiful natural veining in the material adds a brilliance when contrasted with the wood.
This high-quality kitchen is finished with extra-tall custom alder cabinetry, gourmet appliances, and a rustic copper sink.
The attached dining area has a quirky cylindrical shape, which gives every guest a taste of the bountiful woodlands outside.
Log homes are often about peace and quiet, and a reclusive place to relax can often bring the rejuvenating feeling of living amongst nature. This custom cabin's four seasons room is the perfect place to read and reflect.
The main living level of the house hosts two of the bedrooms. They both have walk-in closets, the main bedroom benefiting from direct access to the master bathroom and the peaceful deck area.
The second bedroom is spacious, finished with attractive rugged furniture. Do you see the ladder? It is the key to this room's secret...
The second bedroom benefits from a sleeping loft, meaning the house could comfortably sleep four adult couples!
The quality of fixtures and fittings in the bathroom are evident, with attractive materials creating an inviting and relaxing space. We love the way the use of wood creates an arch to the large tub. Check out that view!
In the basement of this custom log home lies another of the floor plan's secrets: a gorgeous octagonal game room. What a fantastic addition to a log home and the perfect place for fun evenings with your party in your wooden retreat.
The basement also hosts a second living room. This less formal space is ideal for cozy evenings with the family, the low roof making it an easier room to heat for those fresher winter days.
The final secret of this custom floor plan is a stunning wine cellar which captures the essence of the whole house: the perfect rustic-yet-chic homelife.
