There were just four sales on Lake Winnipesaukee in May 2011 but that does equal last May’s tally although the average sales price was lower at just $1.053 million compared to an average of $1.727 last May. Last May there were three sales over a million, one of which came in at $3.9 million helping to boost that average.

The least expensive sale on Winnipesaukee last month was at 20 Railroad Ave in Alton. This is an updated two bedroom, 744 square foot seasonal camp sitting on a .16 acre lot with 40’ of waterfront. The big selling feature here is that this small cottage has really big, panoramic views from the large deck. This lakeside retreat was listed at $429,000, reduced to $389,000, and sold for $355,000 after 266 days on the market. The current tax assessment for is Alton waterfront is $401,500.

Another completely renovated waterfront home at 177 Kingswood Road in Wolfeboro also attracted a new buyer. This 1980 vintage, 3,400 square foot, three bedroom, five bath contemporary home was put on a new foundation and stripped right down to the studs. The only thing reused were the beautiful fir floors. Everything else is new-inside and out. The home features a custom kitchen with beautiful cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, a lakeside living room with gas fireplace, a family room in the walk out basement, and three bedrooms all with private baths. The home sits on a level one acre lot with southern exposure and gorgeous views. There is 119’ of frontage, a sandy beach, and a forty foot dock for the new owners to enjoy now that summer is finally here. This home was on the market for 305 days starting at a list price of $1.995 million, with several price reductions down to $1.595, with an offer accepted at $1.47 million. The current tax assessment for this property is $1.352 million.

The largest sale for the month was at 112 Hopewell Road in Alton. This is a 3,192 square foot, four bedroom, three bath, classic lake home with a large wrap-around porch that is perfect for telling tales on. The home was built in 1999 on a 2.18 acre lot on Roberts Cove that offers great privacy, westerly views, stunning sunsets, 296’ of frontage, plus a U-shaped dock with breakwater. The tale of the sale on this home is a long one. It was first offered in December 2005 at $3.9 million, in October 2006 for $2.995 million, in 2008 for $3.1 mil, and in 2010 for $1.6 as a short sale. This year it was listed for $1.595 million and found a buyer at $1.5 mil after 168 days. The listing doesn’t say that it was a short sale, but the fact that it was under contract for only 39 days before closing would mean that it wasn’t. It probably just felt that way to the seller…The property is current assessed at $1,46,200.

Over on Winnisquam there were five sales which is actually a banner month for this lake! That puts the tally for the first five months up to fifteen sales compared to ten for the same period last year. Three of the five sales occurred on Leighton Ave in Laconia which is a little unusual. The largest sale was at 140 Leighton Ave North in Laconia. This Japanese influenced contemporary home built in 1980 has 1,580 square feet of living space, three bedrooms, two baths, a massive stone fireplace in the living room, a sauna, and a newly remodeled kitchen with granite countertops, cherry cabinets, and Jenn–Air appliances. The home literally is on the water as the decks actually overhang the lake. You can imagine how great the views are! The house sits on a .85 acre lot with 369 feet of frontage. There is even a Japanese Tea House straddling a babbling brook that is accessed by a small bridge. Kind of makes you want to watch a rerun of Karate Kid. It was a bit of a struggle to get this property sold. It was listed originally in 2009 and 2010 at $799,000 and at $749,900 this year. It was reduced to $649,000 with a deal accepted at $605,000 after a total of 977 days on the market. The current tax assessment on this property is $645,200. I bet the former owner was happy to finally say “Sayōnara” to this one…

Right now there are about 275 waterfront properties available on Winnipesaukee and 27 on Winnisquam from as little as $189,000 to just over $10 million with lots of deals in between. Maybe you can find your own great deal on the water this summer!
