If you believe size matters, then you are going to love this home on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee in Alton, New Hampshire.
Alton Bay, NH, is known for its beautiful water views and idyllic New England settings. It's also known for having the largest single-family home in the Granite State.
The Longview Estate, at 144 Hopewell Road, which according to the original listing by LandVest sold for over $5 million, boasts 10 acres of pristine land on the tip of Clay Point, overlooking the majestic Lake Winnipesaukee, and featuring magnificent views of the mountains and the lake.
The peninsula estate is noted on angi.com as one of the largest residential homes in the country, with over 38,000 square feet of living space.
The luxurious residence features 7 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, and a two-story ballroom with a fireplace and double staircase. In addition, there is a pub, billiards room, movie theater, library, 15 fireplaces, and a pool with a waterfall.
With 4 en-suite guest rooms, the new owner will have plenty of room for guests. The 3-bay stone boathouse has a gathering place above, while the lower house level is a wonder with a gym, sauna, theater, dining room, and kitchen.
There are two apartments on the property, above each of the two 4-bay garages.
Do you want to hear more? Ok, there is a registered helipad on the property and an adorable stone guest house. Entertaining is not a problem on this massive estate.
The main house was built in 2003, and the property was recently purchased for a bargain price of $5.6 million. That's quite a difference from the original asking price of over $9 million, but hey, when you live like a king or queen, what does a few million dollars matter?
Let's have a look.
