Moultonborough New Hampshire

So Far a Good Year for Lake Winnipesaukee Home Sales on the Northern Side of the Lake.

Lakes Region Sunrise

While there are 37 Lake Winnipesaukee homes offered at $3,000,000 or more currently on the market, 10 of them are in Gilford, NH.  9 of these Lake Winnipesaukee homes for sale for $3,000,000 or more are in Wolfeboro.  Only 12 of them are in Meredith and Moultonborough where most of the Winnipesaukee home sales in this price range are happening.

Of these remaining waterfront homes, Hornet's Nest Point is the only estate on the Northern Shores of Lake Winnipesaukee, that features newer construction, 8 or more acres directly on the lake, and a Lake Winnipesaukee water view. (The Lake Winnipesaukee view is breathtaking). The fact that this luxury estate home has just had a $1,000,000 price reduction puts it in or below the price range of many much older homes and many homes without boathouses and sand beaches around Lake Winnipesaukee. This large distinctive parcel that includes 2 waterfront lots has views to the South, North, and East for the benefits of all day sun.

Luxury Lake Winnipesaukee Market

While the Lake Winnipesaukee high end market may appear to have many homes to chose from, the truth is that for individual buyers, it is often very, very difficult to find the home that suits their many needs, wants, and prerequisites as far as house style, location, design, exposure, and landscape. Despite the magnificence of Lake Winnipesaukee and the wonderful lifestyle that is offered to those living in the Lakes Region, high end Buyers will not buy a home until they find their irresistible home at the right price.

Lakes Region Sunrise

As August is usually the beginning of the prime season for selling high end waterfront homes, the upcoming months will be important for both the Buyers and Sellers of high end Winnipesaukee waterfront homes, as well as for the real estate agents of these lakefront properties. With 4 Lake Winnipesaukee land sales of $600,000 or more so far this year, and one of them at a nearly $3,000,000 selling price, we see that there certainly are people who are deciding to build rather than buy the existing homes offered. (There are, of course, "teardowns" that have been bought with the intention to build in the next few years as well).

Latest Luxury Sales

In this "Buyer's market" 27 Lake Winnipesaukee homes have sold for more than $1,000,000 so far this year. 4 of the 27 Lake Winnipesaukee homes that have sold so far this year were listed at $2,995,000 or more. (These 4 sold for between $2,900,000 and $4,325,000). 2 were Moultonborough sales. 1 was a Meredith sale. 1 was a Gilford sale.  5 of the 6 highest price home sales have been in Meredith and Moultonborough. (The highest price Lake Winnipesaukee waterfront land sale was in Alton for $2,900,000.) As far as Lake Winnipesaukee home sales, it has been a good year for the northern side of Lake Winnipesaukee so far this year.

When is a Ten Minute Drive Worth Your Time?

It is a challenge sometimes to get real estate clients to look at Lake Winnipesaukee property at the end of Moultonborough Neck Road. Once they arrive at a lakefront property off Moultonborough Neck Road though, they are often enthralled. The estate lots, the privacy, and the long lake views across "the broads" can give you a sense of peacefulness and fill you with rapture. Being ten minutes farther from Church Landing or a golf course isn't prohibitive to people who fall in love with Moultonborough Neck Road waterfront property. In the words of people who've purchased lakefront property off Moultonborough Neck....... "When did a 10 minute drive ever kill you?"

I currently have two listings in Windermere Estates at the end of Moultonbrough Neck and Long Island. Both listings are very private and located across the street from a Windermere Estates owned forest.  As more people who are moving to the Lakes Region seem to be looking for estate size lots and privacy these Winderemere, Lake Winnipesaukee estate lots should be of increasing interest to buyers. The location in the center of Lake Winnipesaukee is highly desirable for those who enjoy traveling by boat to the most popular Lake Winnipesaukee shored towns.  If you are looking for privacy and expansive long, lake and mountain views in a quiet bay, make sure you take a look at 107 Windermere Road and 115 Windermere Road in Moultonborough, NH.  If both of these properties are purchased you would own 535 ft. of linear Lake Winnipesaukee  waterfront and more than 3.6 acres directly on lake Winnipesaukee, and a sandy beach.  Isn't all this a good reason to add 10-15 minutes to your drive to your Lake Winnipesaukee dream home? Rarely do 2 neighboring NH Lake Winnipesaukee estate lots come on the market. If you know someone in the market for a large lakefront estate property, make sure you mention 107 Windermere and 115 Windermere Estates Road.

Winnipesaukee Waterfront 2012 and 2013.  A Comparison of 2 Beginnings.

 

Taking a look back how the Winnipesaukee waterfront market started in 2012 and comparing it to the beginning of 2013, we may see just a slightly slower start to the strong pulse of the market this year.  This probably shouldn't be a surprise given that many people were waiting to hear a resolution to the looming fiscal cliff scenario at the end of 2012.

3  Lake Winnipesaukee Homes with Owned Waterfront Have Sold So Far in 2013.

 

Looking back at the very beginning of 2013, for the period from January 1, 2013 to February 17, 2013, only 3  Lake Winnipesaukee homes with owned waterfront have sold.  The average number of days on market for these Winnipesaukee home sales was 303. The average selling price for them was $586,667. The highest selling price during this time period was 85 Pinnacle park in Meredith for $640,000.

In 2012, by comparison, 9 homes with Owned Waterfront on Lake Winnipesaukee Sold in the Same Time period.

 

In 2012, by comparison, 9 homes with owned waterfront on Lake Winnipesaukee sold for the same time period, January 1st through February 17th.  The average number of days on market for these January and February sales in 2012 was 229.  The average selling price was $897,778.  The highest selling price during this time period in 2012 was 312 Edgewater Drive, which sold for $2,500,000.
 
As there are currently 10 Winnipesaukee homes with owned waterfront  pending or contingent according to the Northern New England Real Estate Network, as of today, February 17, 2013, we may have a shot at ending February 2013 with approximately the same number of sales and the same, or higher, average selling price than in 2012 for this time period.  
The 2 highest listing prices for contingent and pending Winnipesaukee waterfront home sales, as of today, are the$4,200,000 listing price for the contingent sale on Roberts Cove Road in Alton and the $2,500,000 listing price for 34 Boathouse Road in Moultonborough. The only Winnipesaukee real estate listing contingent or pending between with a listing price $1,300,000 and $2,500,000 is 134 Black Point in Alton, which is listed for $1,550,000.  The lowest listing price for contingent and pending sales is $575,000 for 121 Pinnacle Park Road in Meredith. The average contingent selling price for the 10 Winnipesaukee waterfront contingent and pending sales is $1,644,500.

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.
