The entry level sale for the month was at 16 Pleasure Lane in the Balmoral community in Moultonborough. The property is located on Middle Brook which provides affordable and direct access to Winnipesaukee. This two-bedroom home was built in 1990 and has 1,664 square feet of recently remodeled living space.

The home sits on a quarter acre lot with 70’ of frontage with two docks. It was listed at $499,000 and sold for $470,000 after 53 days on the market.
The median price point sale was at 1 Littlest Mud Island in Wolfeboro. This property is very special; it is the entire 1.9-acre island with a main lodge, two smaller cabins, and a two-bay boathouse. The main lodge was built in 1953 while the cabins were constructed in 2011. The main lodge has that rustic feel with wood floors, pine walls, exposed rafters, and a large brick fireplace. There are seven bedrooms between the three structures so there is plenty of room for guests. Recent updates include new metal roofs on the lodge and boathouse, new underground electric lines, and a ten-bedroom septic system. The interior of the island is selectively cleared providing walking trails and space for outside activities. The 1,320 feet of shoreline provides amazing sunrise and sunset views. Sounds like it is pretty close to paradise to me. This property was listed at $1.2 million and sold for $1.05 million after 154 days on the market.
