Default Anyone familiar with this property/land?

I am guessing that this end of the lake is not desirable or there is a groth problem in the water judging from the overhead pictures, but the price doesn't seem bad for 10 acres with water front. Anyone familiar with the area? Spetic is already installed as well.

The provided map shows a location not on Lake Winnipesaukee. When looking up Fox Hollow, it shows a street in the middle of Lee's Pond and Winnipesaukee. Given the length of the dock and rough location guess, it's in a section just north of Hanson Cove, where our camp is. If it's where I'm thinking, we've kayaked it often. Very serene, only one or two homes in the area, but loaded with water plants. My sense is that the length of dock is required to get a boat in there without tangling up. In fact, thinking about it, I can only think of three homes up there, and one of them appears abandoned.

So, if it's where I think, it's a super peaceful and beautiful location, but the water quality would make it much less usable than other places. My guess is that there are limitations to what an owner could do to change that.

Check the Moultonborough GIS tax maps and there is a 10.04 acre lot on Fox Hollow with frontage on Lees Mills section of the lake. Ownership is shown as James and Margaret Maynard. Interesting part of lake at very close to the end of Fox Hollow. Not sure of water depth since it is tucked in away from the channel.

The overhead pictures show the actual waterfront and much of the 10 acres, which is conservation land (wetlands that cannot be built on). The area that can be built on and septic system appear to be close to the road (Fox Hollow) and set back from the Lake with the conservation land limiting options lakeside. I think the dock is on association land at the end of Fox Hollow because no dock is allowed on conservation land. The lot has been on the market for several years with different brokers.

That's the one.
Here is the GIS map showing the location:

That's in Lee's Mills. Looks like the driveway may be a ROW rather than coming off Fox Hollow? I'd also be interested in the conservation land quality and what it would take to get to building site to water.

I would think that it would be a ROW off Fox Hollow Rd.
I wouldn't take that piece of land if they offered it to me for free.

That water front is shallow and mucky and it mostly protected wetlands. I have walked that property before and I agree if it was for free I would walk away from it.

Lets face it, after 3+ years on the market at that low price someone would have grabbed it long ago and "Mc-Mansion'd" it already if it was a decent plot with lake frontage

Default Donation?

Is there a conservation group that would take it? I know some don't have the manpower to manage small parcels.

Sounds like it is already effectively being conserved in it not being used & possibly not usable. Maybe the seller will donate it for a tax deduction and get it formally protected.

Last summer we took a look at it from the water. The area is very peaceful as water is shallow, unsuitable for fast boat traffic, and navigation is tricky . We were able get to the dock with our pontoon boat with last summerís high water. House and lot are lovely. So whatís the problem? The lot does not have access to a public road, so a right of way would have to be negotiated if road access were needed. Itís like an island property with difficult to impossible water access.

So there's not even a ROW at present? Ca-razy asking price for that sitch.

Default Row?

The map posted earlier looks like it has a ROW, but certainly not very wide. There are old subdivided lots that have only 10' ROW. Very rare for a planning Board to allow subdivision of a lot that creates a landlocked parcel.

You must have been looking at a neighboring home. There is no house on the lot, only a septic system. There are limited options to build a house and a well would be needed. There is a shared driveway to Fox Hollow Road.

I think this is a different property very near the one we saw, which did have a nearly finished house. I canít find that listing now. This one is listed as pending per Realtor.com, so someone has plans for it.

It will be interesting to see if the sale closes. The property presumably shows best this time of year because the wetlands are frozen and walkable.
