Lake Winnipesaukee, the heart of New Hampshire's Lakes Region

 

Lake Winnipesaukee is the largest lake in New Hampshire at over 44,000 acres and 200 feet deep surrounded by mountain vistas and the best that Mother Nature can provide. It encompasses the towns of Alton, Gilford, Laconia, Meredith, Center Harbor, Moultonborough, Tuftonboro and Wolfeboro. Each town has its own amenities and personality, all connected by the natural splendor of "The Big Lake".  
   You will find some of the most valuable waterfront homes in the State on the 180 miles of shoreline, though by comparison to properties in surrounding states,

A NH Waterfront Estate for the price of a Bathroom in Manhattan

 

$88 million for a Penthouse?

Yes, a Russian Billionaire's 22 year old daughter purchased Citigroup Chairman & CEO #SandyWeill's lavish Central Park West penthouse.  It is a modest 6,744 square foot Condo overlooking Central Park. That is an astounding $13,048 per square foot. When you walk out the front gate, you have the same experiences enjoyed by all New Yorkers, rich or poor, including traffic, dirt, noise, homeless people, tourists, and celebrities--24/7.  As they say, the Citi never Sleeps.
    I lived in Manhattan for 15 years before moving to New Hampshire. 20+ years ago parking my car cost $350/month which got scratched and dented. I was in advertising primarily working with Living Advertising Legend #JerryDellaFemina. -- a well known respected award winning creative advertising agency filled with wonderful creative loons. There is nothing like the adrenaline of the New York City. Ultimately I had to get out of the city to relax. So I came to New Hampshire--bought a lake house for the price of a closet. My tensions went down, my quality of life went up--the real loons are actually on my lake.
    By comparison, for the price of just the master bathroom at #15CentralParkWest, you could own an entire waterfront estate with three buildings and a rare 2-bay boat house on the 44,000 acre Lake #Winnipesaukee in the Lakes Region of NH. Im talking about the historic #Winneconnett at 70 Sinclair Lane in #Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. Built in 1910 by the Sinclair family of the famed #Sinclair&Valentine Specialty Ink company based in New York City during a time when the #IndustrialAge was making life very busy.
    Even then, like now, this estate was the quintessential place to #GetAwayFromItAll while having all the amenities of keeping up with your business no matter where in the world it is. You can land your private jet to Laconia just over 30 minutes away.
    You will find some of the most valuable and beautiful waterfront homes in New Hampshire on the 180 miles of pristine shoreline. Compared to properties in surrounding states of Maine, Massachusettes, and Vermont, the value is clear.

At a price tag of under $4.5 million, may seem like a lot. But is it really. With over 3.6 private acres and over 175 feet of exceptional frontage  on Lake Winnipesaukee, a rare over-the-water 2-bay boat house.  Add a fully furnished 18-room 7,500+ square foot, 6 bedroom, 5 bath estate with 4.5 car garage and Office with artist studio, and separate exercise building complete with an indoor golf practice net. #Winneconnett on Lake Winnipesaukee is an  estate with the perfect blend of executive home, family home, lake home, surrounded by the best Mother Nature can provide.

The Price to Pay for the Highest Quality of Life is Far Less in NH

The Price to Pay for the Highest Quality of Life is  Far Less in NH

Having lived in #NewYorkCity, Connecticut and Boston I had a different opinion of New Hampshire before ever stepping foot in the State. People I knew called it #NewHampster or #CowHampshire. After all the population was a fraction of what is in those states and seemed to be in the boonies and just so far north. It didn't take long before realizing it was nothing less than beautiful with over 1300 lakes, Lake Winnipesaukee, a pristine 44,000 acre lake in the Lakes Region made famous by the film #OnGoldenPond staring #KatherynHepburn with Jane and Henry Fonda written by local talent #ErnestThompson. The "Big Lake" is surrounded by the majestic White Mountains. You see, I was paying $2000 a month for an apartment in Boston with no High speed internet access,
Then I discovered the real wealth of New Hampshire in Wolfeboro. Rich in History as Americas's Oldest Resort" and Rich in Natural Beauty and some of the most beautiful waterfront estates for about 25-50%  of what would be fetched in the Hamptons in NY or the Massachusetts and Connecticut seacoast--and without the traffic.
