Watch Anthony discuss 3 homes for sale in Newbury:
[toggle_content title=”Anthony Shows 3 Homes for Sale in Newbury NH”] We are on the slopes and it’s time to go on the market with Anthony Lamacchia of McGeough and Lamacchia Realty John is off again this week.
Well as I said last week someone has to work
And he is the one doing it luckily he’s not the only one sick
Yeah I’m getting better I don’t feel as bad as I sound
This is your area by the way you love skiing up here
I love skiing at Sunapee I’ve come here more than any other mountain it’s a lot of fun snow’s always good and it’s great during the week especially
Well I think we should toast to Sunapee!
Fine by me
All right cheers, that’s good. With that being said let’s talk about the market up here because we’ve got some really nice really high end places to look at
We do. Newbury New Hampshire- a great town, obviously Lake Sunapee and Mount Sunapee is the big deal around here. Lake Sunapee’s got 7 beaches, 3 lighthouses, and all these properties that we’re going to talk about are actually on the lake
That’s where Steven Tyler grew up right? Didn’t his grandparents live here?
I’m not sure.
Yeah his grandparents had a place up here on the lake I believe.
Ok, well average home price for this town is actually $350,000 but like last week we’re going to talk about properties on the higher end.
Oh when you see the views on these places, the first one right off the bat.
Very nice homes, first one is on Bay Point Road, it’s on for $1.3 milliion it’s a 3 bedroom 4 bathrooms, a lot of cathedral ceilings, stone fireplace, again, it’s right on the water, a really nice home, on for $1.3 million so might be one you’d want to buy.
Yeah except the President and the Governor got their hands in my pockets at the moment. Otherwise I’d be in!
Maybe one of these other ones let’s try again
When we get to the third one then you really got my attention.
Third one is real nice but this one is too it’s 50 Highland Ave on for $1.6 million the front picture does it absolutely no justice, it’s a 5000 square foot home, real tall cathedral ceilings again, full glass looking out to the lake which is gorgeous, a dock for 2 boats
Which is nice.
Absolutely, deck sitting right there so you can look out on the water.
3 and a half baths on this one I like too because if you’ve got a place like this and you’ve got the boats you’re bringing people up and they don’t need to be using Daddy’s bathroom.
Maybe after drinking. All right last but not least, this is the one I think you’ll like.
By the way after drinking you’re referencing my hot chocolate in the snifter, I assume
Yes, 29 Lakewood Manor Road on for $1.9 million this house is awesome, cathedral ceilings much more than normal it has over 20 foot ceilings,
It’s like Notre Dame cathedral
Again lakefront, this one has beautiful appliances, sub zero, red birch floors, I thought that was interesting, so it has all the regular things you hear about you know, the special appliances, the hardwood floors, all that stuff but it also has interesting things like I said 2 fireplaces, red birch floors, and extra tall ceilings, so a really nice home, stone fireplace,
Tell us about the area, what is it you like about Sunapee in particular that keeps you coming back?
You know I don’t want to mention other ski resorts, but a lot of them get too crowded, this place has a good crowd but it’s not so much that it’s overwhelming, the snow’s great here always here, all the time, go up and down all day and have a good time
And it’s an hour and a half from Boston. It literally is.
Yes I left at about 6 this morning, and I was here about 7:35.
So nice place and I’m going to go out and probably go down about a handful of times and that’s about it for today because I’m not feeling good.
That reminds me, you should have another sip of a hot beverage. Hey by the way how about the fact that I went through the whole interview without mentioning your wife’s gazpacho?
It’s ok, you can mention her.
That’s just for Chris Wallace,
Oh and quickly, website address, if people want to look at these properties or any other properties?
MLRealtyNE.com, Anthony it’s great to see you as always.[/toggle_content]
