144 Springfield Point Road, Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, United States, 03894
A world-class lakefront estate with incredible amenities, a spectacular 18,500 square foot main house and 600 feet of waterfront has sold for $7,752,466 in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. The property was developed in 2005 and had sat on the market since December 2012 for as much as $13,600,000. Designed by TMS Architects and described as being Shingle-Style with Arts and Crafts elements, the substantial residence was designed to blend in with its surroundings. According to TMS Architects, “By building on only a small portion of the forested acreage, the vast majority of the land is preserved in its natural state and unaffected by development. The interior holds true to the natural inspiration by using an abundance of natural wood such as red oak and mahogany to appoint the interior spaces, creating a warm and cozy feeling in the main living spaces within the house.”
The handsome front door reveals the open living area with handcrafted mahogany and cherry, four-story curved staircase, a 30 foot stone living room fireplace, commercial chef’s kitchen, a banquet sized dining room with coffered ceiling and twin butlers pantries. The comfortable four-season room offers a fireplace, indoor grill and adjacent hot tub room in the cupola. Enjoying views over Lake Winnipesaukee, Harmony Island as well as the ski slopes of Gunstock Mountain Resort, the property also includes an elevated beach, four-slip boat dock and swim float, a three-bay mahogany boathouse with boat lifts, a 36-foot x 50-foot two storey barn and an FAA approved heliport. There is more than 18,500 square feet of space with thirty-seven rooms, eight bedrooms, eleven bathrooms, eight fireplaces, two elevators and an exceptional guest wing. It had recently been on the market for $10,888,000 before selling for $7,752,466.
