The Clearbrook section of the town of Lincoln, NH was developed in concept as a mountainside village and constructed with architecture and landscaping suitable for its natural setting in the White Mountains. Structures, roads, pathways, utility services, landscaping and plantings are to be designed for minimum intrusion into the mountain environment. The 246 townhouse units with approximately one mile of roadways were built between 1980 and 1989. Except for 26 single units, all are townhouses connected in clusters of 2 or 3. Nearly all are regarded as getaway retreats by the owners, who are mainly residents of MA (69%), NH (10%), CT (13%) and RI (2-3%). Clearbrook is bounded on the north and east by the White Mountain National Forest, the Kancamagus Highway on the south, and Clearbrook stream on the east, which separates it from the similar the Village of Loon Mountain.
