Historic “Stonehenge of Wolfeboro” located in the “Oldest Summer Resort in America”
One of the exciting things about being a Realtor is when you have the opportunity to list and promote a very unique property. Every property has characteristics that make it unique, but it is the rare property that epitomizes what the term “unique” stands for in real estate.
“Stonehenge of Wolfeboro”
We have just listed such a property, historic “Stonehenge of Wolfeboro” located in the “Oldest Summer Resort in America”. This summer home was built in 1907 by Isaac F. Baker as a private retreat by the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. The home was named after the famous prehistoric observatory Stonehenge located in the English county of Wiltshire. When originally built in 1907, “Stonehenge of Wolfeboro” had a 360 degree view of the countryside which included South Wolfeboro Bay on Lake Winnipesaukee. The massive stone columns surrounding the house and the stone steps into the “Great Room” speak of a time gone by.
