Oligotrophic Lake Homes in Belknap County

"OLIGO – Oligotrophic lakes are usually contain a low level of nutrients and as a result do not support nuisance algal blooms or extensive rooted plant growths. Aesthetically, these lakes are the best of the three ratings and include most of the larger, deeper lakes. From a technical standpoint a Oligotrophic lake is actually considered a "younger lake" because time has not taken a toll on its clean state by filling up with sediment. Now all lakes in NH were pretty much the same age however many factors will age a lake including the depth, water floor, sand and human activity. 

Here are homes listed on Oligotrophic Lakes. 

 

OTHER LAKE CLASSIFICATIONS

MESO – Mesotrophic is intermediate between an oligotrophic and eutrophic water body. Most lakes in NH are in this class. It does not in any way mean it isn't clean. You may find it to be more tea colored which has more to do with iron in the water which is found in Granite--afterall we are in the Granite State. Algal production is moderate. Phosphorus input and water clarity are also intermediate compared to the other two lake ratings. Fish love these lakes for sure. If the lake is abused it eventually may move into the eutrophic category 

"EUTRO – Eutrophic lakes are characterized by a higher levels of algae or "weeds" or aquatic plants, which indicates that the system may be receiving an overabundance of phosphorus. Water clarity is usually dramatically reduced during algal blooms. These bodies of water tend to be weedier, shallower with mucky bottoms.

All the clichés apply here. Move in ready, turnkey, no deferred maintenance, breathtaking views, no expense spared, family compound, sugar sand beach, fabulous boathouse, heated indoor pool and sauna. Let's start with the 4 car garage with rubber coin floor. A new stone facade with overhang was added for water diversion. Above is a 2 bedroom, full kitchen, 3/4 bath space that has been totally redone. Luxury plank flooring, fresh paint, new appliances including a gas range and quartz counters. A mini split for heating and cooling, new bath fixtures. The main log home has recently been painstakingly hand sanded and stained. Inside the warmth and charm of a log home brings that homey comfortable feeling. The ample granite counters along with a gas range are a recipe for great creations from the “chef”. In the living area, the gas stove creates more warmth for this inviting space. There are 3 mini splits and central a/c, so depending on the season, heating and cooling is as seamless as the seasons themselves. In the lower level is a pellet stove, wet bar, a bathroom and utility room complete with washer and dryer, new Bosch furnace and water softener system. From this lower level is access down one more level to the indoor heated pool and sauna. You can also access the pool from outside if you are coming up from the lake or boathouse. Oh...did we mention there is an historic 100+ year old 5 bay boathouse? Alongside the boathouse is the walk-in sandy beach.
