At this rustic townhouse at 38 Tall Pines Way in Conway, N.H., the most fervent skiers can make sure they savor each day full of fresh powder.

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom property is “exactly what you think of when you think ‘ski house,’” said listing agent Linda Pinkham, of Pinkham Real Estate. There are five skiing mountains near the Conway home — Mount Cranmore, Attitash, Wildcat, Black Mountain, and King Pine — and more within a 30-minute drive, Pinkham said.

The 2,298-square-foot home hit the market Dec. 28 for $459,000, a rare find in an era where ski country homes have been flying off the market at an unprecedented rate. 

The exterior of the home has gray, vertical boards. There is an upper and a lower deck, and light pours out of the multiple windows.

The home opens into a small foyer, with a mudroom to the right and a full bathroom with a standalone shower slightly farther down the hall. Beyond the entryway, the living room gives the first floor the rustic, ski-house feel with a wood-paneled wall, wood floors, and a wood-burning, fieldstone fireplace with a pellet stove. Sliding glass doors open onto a private deck, and natural light cascades into the room from a skylight built into the cathedral ceiling. 

A bathroom with a tile floor has light, cream-colored walls, a standalone shower on the right side, and a toilet and wooden vanity with a sink against the back wall.

The kitchen, which shares an open floor plan with the living room, adds a contemporary touch to the home’s woodsy style, with new laminate flooring, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops. The peninsula and dinette provide plenty of space to sit down for a warm meal after a long day on the slopes. More sliding glass doors in this room let out onto a smaller deck.

Two wooden bar stools are set up at the kitchen peninsula in the foreground. A black cabinet set sits next to the stainless steel refrigerator. To the right of that, there’s a window over the sink. Wood cabinets hang from the walls over the countertops.

A wood table with six chairs set up around it sits at the center of the room. Pine trees are visible through the clear, sliding glass doors on the right side of the room. The living room is visible in the background.

Upstairs, a spacious landing serves as a sitting room, where yet another set of sliding glass doors opens onto an upper deck. Two bedrooms are located to the back of this level, each with wall-to-wall carpet, a closet, and a large window that looks out to the heavily wooded yard. There’s also another full bathroom on this floor. 

A blue couch is set up facing a large, flat-screen TV. There’s a set of sliding glass doors that let out onto the upper deck. There’s a spiral staircase in the foreground.

The bedroom has a carpet and light blue walls. There’s bunk bed with a double bed on the bottom, and there are two wooden dressers– one in the foreground and one against the back wall.

The carpeted bedroom has a bed and a frilled pillow, with a metal footboard. There are two wood dresser drawers with a large window in between.

A combination shower/bathtub sits on the left side of the bathroom with a shower curtain decorated with moose and bears. A toilet and a wooden vanity with a sink are set up to the right of the shower.

A spiral staircase leads up to a roomy third bedroom, which has a built-in desk along one wall, wall-to-wall carpet flooring, and a skylight. 

The fourth floor bedroom has slanted ceilings and wall-to-wall carpeting. There’s a skylight over a large bed, and a wood desk attached to the opposite wall.

The finished, walk-out basement is home to the family room, which opens into another room the sellers used as a fourth bedroom. The rooms were previously separated by a wall, Pinkham said, before the previous owners decided to tear it down and create a more open space. Sliding glass doors at the back of this room open into the yard.

A green couch sits in front of a wood coffee table, and next to a white, cushioned reclining chair. The basement bedroom is visible in the background.

Light streams into the basement bedroom from sliding glass doors against the back wall. There are two sets of bunk beds set up back-to-back on one side of the room, and a desk with a rolling chair and a computer set up on the other side.

The basement also houses a full bathroom with a combination shower/bathtub, a washer and dryer, and a utility room set up with a work bench where residents can tinker with their skis. There’s also a one-car garage and a paved driveway.

Although the community and the home seem ready-made for the avid skier, there’s still plenty to do in the warmer months.  

“We’re actually busier with vacationers during spring, summer, and fall than in the winter because people come here also to hike and fish and enjoy the rivers and swim,” Pinkham said.

In the winter, however? “It’s ski central,” Pinkham said.
