Bow Lakefront Property  Buyers Guide

Send me a note and I will send you information on a lake you maybe interested in!

Bow Lake Real Estate Bow Lake is located in the southern tier of NH  located in Rockingham and Strafford Counties. The lake is 1160 acres and has 7 named islands, Bennett Island, Loon Island, Long Island, Beech Island,  Pine Island,  Rye Island and York Island. Bennett Island has a nesting Bald Eagle that has been coming back year after year and several resident Loon families on the lake.  If you are looking for a deep water oligotrophic lake in the mid section of the state this is it.  Bow Lake is an easy commute to Concord, Manchester or Portsmouth for those lakefront buyers who want it all. Gunstock Ski Area is about 45 minutes away and you will find plenty of Golf and Hiking trails minutes from the lake.  Towns around the lake include Strafford and Northwood.

Homes when available on Bow Lake range in price from $410,000 for a seasonal cottage to the $900,000 range for a year round luxury home.  Be careful when you are looking at Bow Lake property online, some of the homes appear on the lake but are in back ponds that may or may not be connected to the main lake.  Call us for help.

Should I Buy a Lakefront Lot? I want to Build My Dream Waterfront Home?

Lake Winnipesaukee Real Estate for sale, Alton NH

I would look for an existing cottage you can remove.

We get calls all the time from buyers looking for a lakefront lot to purchase to build their dream lakefront home. I almost feel I should tell you they really almost don't exist. The lot you are picturing when you call is level, has sunsets, a sandy walk in beach, on 1 acre or more with 100 feet of frontage with a open water view of mountains in the background. Maybe if we jump into the $750,000 plus range I might come up with that lot, realty says maybe no! The NH DES has rules in place to make your dream lot almost an impossible dream. Take a quick read at the most asked questions at the Department of Environmental Services. http://des.nh.gov/organization/divisions/water/wetlands/cspa/categories/faq.htm  If you are lucky enough to find a lot with a sandy beach can you clear the vegetation to enjoy it, or clear trees to see the lake? I was over at Lake Sunapee looking at a level, wooded 2 acre lot with 200 feet of shoreline last week. Sounds good so far, well the shoreline was rocky with a 6 foot drop down to the lake at the water edge, tons of trees to contend with to open up the view and the lot was over $1.5 million. On the other side of the Lake a listing similar in price with a cottage on it had over 200 feet of sandy shoreline, mountain views and sunsets. With the shoreline rules many options that a new home would have on a vacant lot are grandfathered with an existing home on the lot. The view 90% of the time is already there and you can build on the same footprint and go up a level or move the home back to build a larger home. The old timers did not break any rules when they built their dream homes, there were no rules to follow. A couple of cottage listings I just viewed would fit this perfectly. ( Example ) Bow Lake is 1100 acres, the home had a level lot, sandy beach, views, 1.2 acres of land, 1300 square foot cottage for $410,000 or a Seasonal Cottage on Winnisquam for $349,000. These are building lots that I would build on. You have the views and most of rules are grandfathered to make the permitting go smoothly. Most available land lots on the water in this price range are steep sloping lots with impossible shorelines to develop. Why don't you just call us?
