Country charm on Lake Opechee
Located in a small, desirable Laconia neighborhood, this Nantucket style cape offers gracious living on peaceful Lake Opechee with 1.3 acres of privacy. Only 8 other residences make up this neighborhood, with the lot sizes averaging 1.5 acres. Each residence shares access to a lovely private beach.
The town of Laconia is centrally located and offers easy access to 4 seasons of recreation, shopping, and dining out.
Measuring 1.9 miles long and .7 miles wide, Lake Opechee is one of the smaller lakes in region, with 426 acres. It is boater-friendly, however it is much quieter and more peaceful then some of the larger lakes that attract high tourism in the summer months. Taking that into consideration, Opechee is a perfect lake for waterskiing, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, etc. The maximum depth is approx. 65’ and there are 5.9 miles of shoreline. Paugus Bay flows into Lake Opechee at the Lakeport Dam, and Opechee flows into Lake Winnisquam in downtown Laconia.
The 2,191 sqft. residence was built in 1951 by a local lumber company on elevated, dry and level land, with 244’ of waterfront. Many upgrades have been made to the property in the years following. 7’6” ceilings, an energy efficient design and country charm are the benchmarks of this property, which is in excellent, turn-key condition.
The home has 3 bedrooms (one on the 1st floor and 2 on the second), 2 full baths (one on each level) and a 2 car detached garage. The spacious Master bedroom is located on the second floor and measures 18 x 14.8 ft.
Recent upgrades include updated heating and central air conditioning systems, beautifully refinished oak floors, fresh interior paint, cedar shake siding, insulation, Anderson windows, and new roofing.
Classic country charm shines in the woodwork, rustic hardware, stunning floors and the many built-ins throughout the home. Lake views can be seen from many rooms, including the screened porch.
A flagstone walkway gradually leads to the shore, patio and concrete landing area. The association beach next door is fantastic in the summer months!
There is plenty of opportunity for expansion of this home, including a concrete, unfinished basement. With lovely curb appeal set back from the road, this is a fine home and an incredible opportunity to purchase a lake home in NH’s beautiful Lakes Region.
