Record Sale on Lake Winnipesaukee

Posted by Amanda Nickerson — March 2, 2010

High End Home sales on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire have been gaining momentum since August 2009, showing an upward trend since the financial market meltdown in the Fall of 2008. Statistics from the Northern New England Real Estate Network indicated there were a total of 77 properties sold on Lake Winnipesaukee in 2009; 26 of those waterfront sales sold for over $1-million dollars. In the last half of 2009, approximately 20 of the 26 million dollar waterfront sales sold, showing a substantial improvement in the market.


In November of 2009, Roche Realty Group, Inc. made a record sale of the highest recorded sale on Lake Winnipesaukee at a price of $7,800,000.00. The listing and sale of this property was made from the combined efforts of John Goodhue, PK Zyla and Nancy Williams. According the John Goodhue, the listing agent of this spectacular property, “the property included 8.3 acres with 1,500ft of sandy shorefront on Meredith Bay. The property also included a remarkable stone boathouse, a primary residence and a beautiful stone and wrought iron wall surrounding the compound”. PK Zyla and Nancy Williams also commented “this was one of the finest parcels of land on Lake Winnipesaukee, with a huge sugar sand beach and offered dramatic sunsets”.


Roche Realty Group, Inc. officials indicated the 26 waterfront sales, well in excess of $1 million this year is the best indicator of strong optimism for the Lakes Region’s economy. Winnipesaukee is a nationally known drawing card for the region, with its 72sq. miles of water, 274 islands and almost 625 billion gallons of crystal clear water.
