128 Veasey Shore Offers an Experience of Winnipesaukee Now and Then.

Today, 128 Veasey Shore offers a singular amalgam of beauty.  With a bygone era appeal, the 1928 refurbished boathouse has a relaxed atmosphere.   The camp style living quarters lure you in if the words you want to hear are "You are at the Lake!"

The antique Winnipesaukee boathouse rooms include bedrooms , kitchenette, 3/4 bath, and a vaulted great room with a floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace, all with a natural wood finish.

Panoramic lake views are seen through the large windows alongside the boathouse.  A porch with fireplace built over the water is a perfect place to watch the sunset ribbons splash the sky above Beaver Island in the evenings.

Adirondack Flavor from Boathouse Matches Elements of Main Home.

The split log siding exterior of the boathouse matches the split log siding of the expansive lower level porch of the main home.

The 2003 built home is sited on 2 plus acres.

Built by a premier builder, the home offers 6 bedrooms, including 4 ensuite bedrooms upstairs.  A dramatic entry way with lake views and alternate entrances from the attached garage and side door of the porch make living easy year round.

The first floor master suite, Chef's kitchen with panoramic lake views, walk-in pantry, office/library, living room, dining room, and den are on the first floor.

A media room,  family room, bedroom, and large office/laundry room with a lovely lake view are on the lower level.  An over sized utility room has double doors for lawn vehicles.

Additional room above the garage is ready to be finished to suit a buyer's need or whim.

76 Veasey Shore - The Hour between Dog and Wolf Still Shows this Property as Unambiguously Lovely

[gallery columns="4" ids="1705,1706,1707,1708,1709"]

New Twilight Photos of 76 Veasey Shore Road, Meredith

The" hour between dog and wolf" comes from the French phrase "entre chien et loup".  It refers to a certain time of day that the lighting is shifting, making it difficult to discern between dog and wolf, friend or foe.

October itself is a month of shifting, when all the colors of Fall can come and go quickly. When the wind can obliterate the colors overnight and the new day can seem like a new world more than a new month.

The excitement in the ever-changing days of October is one of the aspects I love about New Hampshire and Lake Winnipesaukee.  A property like 76 Veasey Shore, Meredith NH, which has expansive lake and mountain views and ponds surrounded by gardens and woodlands is a serene world almost unto itself and a perfect spot to enjoy the ever-shifting days of Fall in New Hampshire.

The photos of 76 Veasey Shore taken at twilight, when many trees are already losing their leaves, is a type of moody beauty not always used to market Winnipesaukee Lake Homes for Sale, but the seasons are one of the reasons New Hampshire is magnificent and these photos celebrate it.

The elements of New Hampshire celebrate the mystery and potential for change in everything in our world.

Come enjoy the beauty of the elements at 76 Veasey Shore on October 12th 11AM-2PM.

As a preview, view the twilight photos of 76 Veasey Shore on the 76 Veasey Twilight Photos Link.

The Core Team of Winnipesaukee Experts from Lakes Region Realty Group is Still Here

How Can Buyers Find a Real Estate Agent in the Deluge of Agents on the Internet?

 

I've had potential buyers, who are new to the Lakes Region tell me that it is hard to know how to pick an agent because "there a zillion real estate agents to chose from."  Unfortunately, any agent can chose to call  him or herself a Winnipesaukee waterfront expert, or a specialist in new construction, luxury homes, or any other sort of home for that matter.  Given this reality of the internet age,  it is difficult to sort through pages of information posted on the internet to find the agent that best suits you.

Are looking for the Winnipesaukee insiders?

Are you looking for real estate agents who have been selling primarily Winnipesaukee homes for a decade or more?

Even at our own firm, since the merger, people looking to find the Lakes Region Realty Group agents with whom they worked, now need to look for us under our new sign at the Berkshire Hathaway Verani Realty Moultonborough Office.
Conveniently, we remain in our 2 Lakes Region locations, including the main office, 60 Whittier Highway (Route 25), Moultonborough, NH Unit #3.  If it is more convenient to make an appointment in Meredith, NH, call to make an appointment at  our 290 Daniel Webster Highway, Meredith office.  For your convenience whether traveling by car or boat, we are directly across from the Meredith Town Docks.

We Can Discuss with you Your Lake Region Real Estate Needs & Match you with a Real Estate Specialist.

 

Our core team of agents, who have been experts and the ultimate insiders for Winnipesaukee waterfront real estate for decades continue to grow as a team.  Our ability to communicate with each other and share valuable information that benefits our clients and customers is invaluable.
Even during our "down time" we are discussing real estate.  We discuss what the ideal property would be for our buyer customers and clients.  Often these "relaxed" conversations lead to insights and pathways that lead our customers to homes that they love.  These conversations help to sell our seller clients' homes.
Without the sort of entrainment*, real estate knowledge, ability to listen to one another, compassion, and hard-earned mutual respect, we would just be a group of individuals who call ourselves real estate agents. We have been selling many properties this year in Alton, Wolfeboro, Gilford, Meredith NH and other towns as well as in the town of Moultonborough.  Finding you the home or Lakes Region property that best suits you is our mission.
Our team can advise you, whether you are looking for camps and lakefront cottages, or luxury homes for sale.  If you seek view properties or residential homes for sale in the Lakes Region its environs, we can help you by matching you with an individual or team well suited to your real estate needs.
If you want to work with an agent who has sold extensively  in a particular community such as Windward Harbor or Suissevale, we are happy to provide you with his or her extensive real estate resumes upon request.

Sale and Merger offers Network for Referrals.

At our firm, since the sale and merger, there are hundreds of agents who are part of our new firm, extending through Andover Massachusetts, Southern New Hampshire and the New Hampshire Lakes Region.
We have the benefit of that new extensive referral network.  but our agents who have been selling primarily Winnipesaukee homes for decades are still here at our Moultonborough NH office.
Our broker/sales manager and former sales manager are also both still here. They have provided a wealth of information to our office for decades.  Their combined knowledge and experience with developing subdivisions and building Winnipesaukee waterfront luxury homes as well as decades of transacting real estate is a resource we are able to connect with throughout the day in our office.  They and our agents have also compiled a library of language  for use in complex transactions. Our network of experts who can help you with surveys, engineering, home inspections, and other due diligence, work well together after years of experience working on Winnipesaukee waterfront transactions.
Call to ask questions about market activity in the niche of the market that interests you.  We're always happy to help.
New branding.  Same Core Team. Look for our sign at 60 Whittier Highway Moultonborough, NH.  Please call Nicole to make an appointment.

What Secrets Does Windermere Hold?

What Secrets Does Windermere Hold?

Windermere is a road poised at the end of Long Island.  Windermere Estates is the last named and gated neighborhood on this bridged island, known as Long Island. "Windermere Estates" leans against the widest part of Winnipesaukee. 

Dramatic lake and mountain views and serenity that comes from the surrounding woodlands and large expanse of lake.

The geography of the land at the end Windermere Estates is the shape of a mouth open and calling across the lake.  The name Windermere itself has the sound of a call or a beckon.  And for very good reason.  There is much about this part of the lake that is unique and wondrous.

The 107 Windermere Road Virtual Tour

shows the proximity to the lake of the main home, allowing for spectacular views.

Windermere Beach

Windermere Beach

Rather than recount what I consider magnificent about this part of the lake, I invite those interested in viewing my 107 Windermere listing, to tour this part of the lake by boat with me.  Why Not Experience Windermere for Yourself?

Ideal Winnipesaukee Offering at 107 Windermere

Privacy and the Potential for Many Waterfront Amenities.

Not only does 107 Windermere Road, Moultonborough offer spectacular beauty in one of Winnipesaukee's most classic and peaceful lakefront neighborhoods, this waterfront property has been reduced to $1,000,000 this past week. You have to tour first hand this part of the lake to appreciate this value.
The rectangular shaped parcel, 107 Windermere, is ideal. The waterfront is crystal clear and the angle of the shoreline gives you wonderful, pristine views in all directions. The roadside location of 107 Windermere is right across the street from a much larger parcel of land owned by Windermere Association.   Privacy and quality resonate in every aspect of this New Hampshire lake location.

2.2 Acre Land Parcel has 300 Feet of Waterfront and "Grandfathered" Proximity to the Lake.

This level, 2.2 acre lot has a long, sprawling 3 bedroom ranch home at water's edge.   Experience the sight of long lake and mountain views from this lot and you'll understand the lure of Long Island and its environs.  Rarely are such beautiful views right at your doorstep.   The sound of lapping water is just outside your windows.

3 Bedroom Home and 1 Bedroom Cottage are Currently on the Property.

The 3 bedrooms, living room, large den, and kitchen all have Lake Winnipesaukee's shoreline a few feet...or even less...outside the window.  Just a short ride on your jet ski can take you directly across the lake to Gilford NH amenities. Meredith and Center Harbor Bays are also just minutes away.  Why deal with road traffic when a boat ride can take you where you want to go?

Plenty of Room for an Extended Family to recreate at 107 Windermere Road.

Enjoy views past Ragged Island all the way across the lake to Rattlesnake Island.  This is an ideal  land parcel for a new construction home.  If privacy, central lake location, and end-of-Long-Island tranquility sound appealing, please call me to tour this property and this lake location.
107 Windermere's 300 ft. of waterfront is plenty of room for perched beach, large docking system, fire pit etc., subject to state and local permits.
This property might have particular appeal to those who would value a large guest cottage as part of their Winnipesaukee lake home.
Although the current guest cottage needs to be rebuilt, a grandfathered full guest cottage with kitchen, screen porch, living room, and kitchen of this size is rare on a single lot of record in Moultonborough.
