700 Feet of Private Shoreline on 6 Acres with a 2 Bay Boathouse.


You have a vast variety of homes on the lakes.  One example is an icon on Lake Winnipesaukee with 700 feet of shoreline, a boathouse and 6 acres of land for $3.7 million. Homes on the major lakes are priced from $600,000 to $10 million. The ideal estate has a sandy beach, sunsets, and room for the whole gang.
