PROS This former ranch, built in 1992, offers 100 feet of shoreline with a 32-foot dock and views of Big Beaver Island, Mount Chocorua, and the Ossipee Mountains. The owners added a second floor and a two-car detached garage with a workshop on top. The master suite is on the home’s first floor. The kitchen has stainless appliances and a pantry, and a bead-board-clad closet under the entryway stairs houses a washer and dryer. A door in the family room opens to a large, pretty slate patio and a flat expanse of grass with steps down to the water. CONS The second floor does not have a bathroom, and the driveway is shared.

PROS It’s no surprise that a home once owned by a founder of Harvey Industries is awash in windows — 32 in the family room alone. They let you take in the view of the property’s 125 feet of shoreline and deep-water dock. The first-floor master suite features a soaking tub and deck, while the kitchen has maple floors and cabinets, Corian counters, and a stainless double oven. The family room in the walkout basement adds more than 600 feet of living space. The home, built in 1995, is part of the private Lakeside at Winnipesaukee community, which for $183 a month affords access to the tennis courts and a beach and covers maintenance of common areas. CONS The color scheme in the master bath may not appeal to some.
