Lake Winnipesaukee

Dan Coons of ILEX Wetlands Consultants Discusses the Possibilities for Development at 88 Kingwood Road, Wolfeboro, NH

New Hampshire Wetlands Regulations
An Issue Many Waterfront Owners Have Questions Regarding

On October 16th 11 AM -1 PM Dan Coons of ILEX Wetlands Consultants, will give a talk in Wolfeboro, NH at 88 Kingswood Road.  Dan will discuss wetlands regulations and possibilities of future development at this 10+ acre Winnipesaukee waterfront parcel on Kingswood Road. 

 ILEX Wetlands Consultants is an environmental consulting firm in the New Hampshire Lakes Region providing services throughout the state. Their purpose is to "balance and serve the needs of both ecosystems and development while doing so in both a cost effective and beneficial manner."

 Dan Coons also serves as the Conservation Commissioner in the town of Wolfeboro. This event will be open to real estate agents and the public at this location near downtown Wolfeboro.

88 Kingwood Road on Winnipesaukee offers a variety of possibilities for development that Dan will discuss. This slightly sloping to level shoreline waterfront parcel is just south of downtown Wolfeboro, down the hill from the Kingwood Golf Course.  This dead-end, private road of sixteen multi-million-dollar waterfront properties is conveniently located so you can walk, bike, or boat to the center of town in minutes.  Kingswood Golf course is and 18-hole golf course is 2-minute golf cart ride away from the roughed in driveway of 88 kingwood Road.

This private, residential  lot at 88 Kingswood Road offers  200+ foot waterfrontage on a large cove perfect for swimming, water skiing or just enjoying the commanding lake & mountain views. A perched beach is possible (subject to State of NH and Town of Wolfeboro approvals). A dock permit already in place.  There is potential to develop it as a horse property and/or build tennis courts.  There is room for a pool, beach volley ball, as well as room for house, garage, and barn.

Multiple house concepts are available or design your own. This estate size parcel is offered well below the towns assessed value of $1,378,800. The lot has been recently cleared and marked so you can begin the building of your dream house.  This is a great opportunity to professionally landscape an elegant setting with privacy and amazing mountain and Lake Winnipesaukee views.  

A glimpse at the real estate market will show a shortage of Wolfeboro Winnipesaukee listings. This event with Dan Coons will allow agents, and property owners to get a better understanding of this property and wetlands regulations in New Hampshire.

Contact Nicole Watkins at 603-707-7575 for information about this event.

The Beautiful Wildlife Near 125 Windermere

Bald Eagle About to Fly Near 125 Windermere Road, Moultonborough, NH

An inviting neighborhood for wildlife and a protected bay with long views are some of the features home owners in the Windermere Association enjoy.  The Bald Eagle pictured here prefers the quiet and wooded areas around the Windermere Association. 

Flying from a tall tree on Winnipesaukee, the Bald Eagle is a stunning site!

While Eagles and Loons provide some of the most beautiful sites and sounds on Lake Winnipesaukee, the Loon Preservation Committee needs support to help keep Lake Winnipesaukee a home for these rare birds.

Slowing down for Loons when boating will help keep these birds a part of our NH history.

The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services Fact Sheets have information on how to help keep Winnipesaukee clean.

If boating regulations, including speed limits are followed, this will go a long way to help keep wildlife safe on Winnipesaukee.  

2 loons ride the large weekend waves on Winnipesaukee.

Common courtesy for other boaters and and respect for the lake is critical in the long term survival of the lake.  With extraordinary warm weather and low gas prices the lake has been more inviting to boaters this summer.  By educating ourselves on practices to keep the lake clean, we can keep the lake beautiful for future generations.

In an election year, why not ask your candidates what they intend to do to help keep NH's lakes clean?  

The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services and the New Hampshire Lakes Management and Protection Program  need very strong support from the legislature to do their job well and to keep our New Hampshire lakes and ponds healthy.  


Water conservation is a related issue that is especially important in drought years, such as 2016. Water Conservation Practice Fact Sheets can be found on the NH DES website regarding water conservation. The Fact Sheets WD-DWGB-26-18 - WD-DWGB-26-23 are especially helpful for homeowners.  Arsenic and bacteria levels can change in years that parts of drinking wells that are usually submerged become dry.  Ask your water or well company for information on water testing.

 

 

 

 

 

Rocco's Pick of the Week: Tuftonboro NH Open House on Labour Day

Rocco and his Best Friend Make 58 Eaglemere Road, a Winnipesaukee Waterfront Home in Tuftonboro,

Their Winnipesaukee Pick of the Week!

Visit Labour Day Weekend Open Houses

September 3rd and September 4th 10 AM - 12 PM

at 58 Eaglemere Road, Tuftonboro, NH.

Gunnison's prairie dogs of the U.S. and Mexico are said to have their own sophisticated language including adjectives, nouns, verbs, and all the nuances of lanugage. This is according to Dr. Slobodchikoff's videotaped studies as written in Temple Grandin's book, "Animals in Translation". It is surmised that the prairie dogs' language grew as a survival mechanism from many years of being prey.

Winnipesaukee dogs are considerably more coddled.  My dog, Rocco gets the cutest toys from WinniPaws boutique pet store in Wolfeboro, and need not worry about procuring his next meal, much less being someone's next meal.  The concept of being prey is foreign to him.  The concept of a boat ride to a beautiful property is his pinnacle of excitement.

Boating by by beautiful 58 Eaglemere Road is especially picturesque at sunset and, as pictured below, at Twilight, coincidentally referred to as the hour between wolf and dog.

Rocoo boating by 58 Eagelmere, is inspired by its beauty.

While Rocco is clearly at his most philosophical and erudite self while boating by Winnipesaukee's 58 Eaglemere Road, we can not guarantee that all human beings will have such exceptional intuition and perception. If they are similarly inspired to be their best at this exceptional Winnipesaukee home, Rocco and I will attribute that to great taste!
