List of the day
Location: Wolfeboro, New Hampshire
The price: 8.9 million US dollars
This beachfront holiday complex is located in the most important resort town Wolfeboro, New Hampshire has a lake house and guest house with views of Lake Winnipesaukee and the Belknap Mountains.
“The craftsmanship of the house and the amenities of the lot make it stand out,” said listing agent Adam Dow. “The stonework alone is worth between $1.7 million and $1.9 million, and the house is positioned so you can see the afternoon sun and sunsets.”
Properties like this one, on the two-mile stretch of Sewall Road, “which is one of the oldest in the city and a road to live on,” Mr. Dow said, don’t come on the market often. “These are generational properties – people don’t sell, they buy properties next door and stay.”
The sellers bought a bigger house in a nearby town, he added.

Sitting on nearly an acre, the residences of the two adjoining properties total 12,211 square feet. The lake house has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and two half baths, and the guest house, which is called the barn in homage to its architecture, has four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
Located on a sandy beach, the lake house is designed for indoor/outdoor living and entertaining. There is a terrace, outdoor kitchen and lawn at the water’s edge, as well as a large indoor kitchen. The main dining area opens to an attached three-season porch that is equipped with a built-in barbecue grill. The second floor, which includes the master suite, has a private patio with hurricane shutters and a cupola.
Other lake house features include a heated driveway and walkway, a whole house sound system with outdoor speakers, an elevator, and a whole house humidity control and air purification system.
The four-bedroom guest house has a large private dock with a double jet ski lift and room for at least four boats, a cedar roof, a bluestone rear patio, heated floors and a so-called “secret garden” with a fenced yard, screened porch and fire pit. Other features include reclaimed oak floors, a game room, and a great room with a floor-to-ceiling fireplace.
Billing itself as America’s oldest summer resort, Wolfeboro is home to just 6,400 full-time residents.
In addition to the beaches and lake, the city offers a variety of cultural attractions, including the Clark Museum Complex, the Libby Museum, the Wright World War II Museum, and the New Hampshire Boat Museum.
