Romeo Lacasse, developer of Willow Pond at Long Bay in Laconia on Lake Winnipesaukee announced the final home sale in this planned community. Joseph MacDonald and Steven Welch of Roche Realty Group, Inc., with offices in Laconia and Meredith, were the exclusive agents in the sale of all 26 homes. Willow Pond at Long Bay is surrounded by three spring fed ponds and abuts the NH State Forest and also has deeded access to Lake Winnipesaukee with two sandy beaches, a private pool, tennis courts and boat club on Winnipesaukee. Romeo Lacasse and his partners, Robert and Ralph Meisner are very proud of their accomplishments at Willow Pond. They commented that “this professionally planned and architecturally designed community of single family cape-style homes blend beautifully around the several ponds overlooking Winnipesaukee”.
Steve Welch and Joe MacDonald commented “considering we marketed this new community of fine homes during such a downturn in the real estate market we did well by selling all 26 homes, Willow Pond is now completely all sold out!”
The homes included 3-4 bedrooms, 3 baths with a 2-car attached garage. They ranged in size from 1,775-3,400 sq.ft. The prices generally ranged from approx. $325,000-$410,000. A large number of the homes were purchased as vacation properties and semi-retirement residences.
Frank Roche, President of Roche Realty Group indicated that the developers of Willow Pond are in the final stages of completing another fine community in Laconia called “Nature’s View at Paugus Bay” a 51-lot subdivision off Elm Street in Laconia, overlooking Paugus Bay. Roche Realty Group again, is the exclusive marketing agent for these affordable new homes. Nature’s View features 3-styles of homes with master bedrooms on the first floor that start at $219,900 and go to $239,900. Both Welch and MacDonald are the exclusive marketing agents and only have 13 remaining premium lots available.
With all the positive national articles coming out on real estate we see the year 2013 as being a great year for the completion of this fine community.
