Longview, the most significant residential real estate offering ever to come to market in New Hampshire, has been listed for sale through Christie’s International Real Estate at a staggering $49 million. One of the most exclusive properties anywhere in New England, the estate is situated on 16.56 acres on New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee with the likes of Mitt Romney and other wealthy denizens inhabiting more modest mansions nearby.
With 1,594 feet of water frontage, the property includes two impressive mansions built in 2000-2004 that total over 63,000 square feet of elegant living space. Longview also comes with a 7,655-square-foot reproduction post-and-beam barn with a soaring stone fireplace that seems perfect for throwing lavish parties, an infinity pool with adjoining grotto, tennis court, and a grass helicopter pad.
Privacy is guaranteed with a secure, gated entrance leading to a long drive that winds through nearly six acres of manicured lawns and artful landscaping. Three garage wings with a total of 11 bays can house a collection of up to 22 cars. Other features of the posh property include two stone boathouses, multiple docks, a stone amphitheater and cottage, and a unique tea house at the water's edge.
The interior of the residences features marble flooring, custom woodwork, carved fireplace mantels, crystal chandeliers, and paneled libraries in the classic English country house-style. There's even a two-story ballroom with a large fireplace and access to terraces for entertaining.
