I remember a time when you could not find a home in Gilford for under $200K!
At 45 Brigham Street in Laconia you’ll find a 1,730 square foot raised ranch that was built in 2006 on a .85 acre lot at the very end of the street.

The main level has an open concept living and an eat-in kitchen area that sports stainless steel appliances and nice cabinetry. There’s a one car garage under and workshop area. The low maintenance vinyl exterior coupled with a small yard will ensure you spend more time in the man cave or out hunting and foraging. This home is priced at $199,000.
Finally, up at 229 Chestnut Drive in Gilford, there is an immaculate, 1,820 square foot, three bedroom, two bath cape with awesome Winnipesaukee views.

Upstairs is a loft/office area and a huge unfinished bonus room. The basement provides ample storage or future expansion possibilities. There’s really no lawn to mow so this low maintenance yard will free up your time so you can enjoy the beach. This home is priced well below the tax assessed value of $229,620 at $199,900.
