---- — Weirs Beach Village in Laconia, N.H., is an amazing community of new single-family homes with great amenities. Set in the heart of the famed Weirs Beach area on Lake Winnipesaukee, it is just a short walk to the Mount Washington boat dock and only 10 minutes from the Gunstock Ski area.

Billed as “a community for all reasons with a location for all seasons,” these homes are designed for carefree, year-round living and are stylish, efficient and well constructed. And, starting at $169,900, they’re affordable, too!

Several different floor plans make it possible to personalize and put the finishing touches on your dream home. What makes these new homes so special is that they are an amazing value, attractive, well planned, and in one New England’s most desirable locations. It is rare to find affordable new construction so perfectly situated near the beach, mountains and year-round attractions of the Lakes Region.

The picture-perfect homes are pure pleasure, with loads of windows that bathe their interiors in natural light, and the inviting four-seasons rooms frame the natural beauty of the neighborhood, bonding the homes to the fabulous Winnipesaukee region’s landscape. An open-floor plan and spacious kitchens are designed for a contemporary lifestyle that makes entertaining and everyday living equally comfortable. The mudrooms, optional loft areas and garages offer great conveniences.

With a brand new home, buyers can choose the finishing touches and appliances, cabinetry and flooring to ensure the space fits their lifestyle. Homes have the added benefit of city water and sewer, so there is less worry for homeowners who want to spend part of the year in a warmer climate.

No need to mow! The homeowners association cares for the mowing of the common space and all yards. For those who like to garden, each home has a yard so you can create your own garden and happy place to sit on your hammock and enjoy. The community is canine-friendly so Fido is welcome, too.

The new, highly efficient homes at Weirs Beach Village are all about lifestyle. The community includes a beautiful clubhouse for gatherings and new outdoor pool for residents and guests. Boating, swimming, fishing and snowmobiling are just minutes away.

Anyone who has ever vacationed near Weirs Beach knows that the Lake Winnipesaukee area has been a year-round mecca for sports enthusiasts for over a century. A prized four-season destination, this highly desirable region also offers popular winter sports options, with extensive snowmobiling trails out your front door and ice fishing, along with great downhill and cross country skiing at nearby Gunstock.

For those who want to relax, the area offers a wide range of outstanding restaurants, spas and entertainment, most within easy walking or driving distance. The ever-popular outlet shopping centers of Tilton are just a short drive from this new community.

The unique new Weirs Beach Village community offers the charm of living in classic New England-style homes in an area well known for its scenic beauty, year-round outdoor fun and cultural attractions at a price that is truly affordable. Designed for owners of all ages, these delightful new homes would work well for empty-nesters who may plan to downsize to a condominium in Florida but also want an affordable home in New England where they can stay close to family and enjoy the timeless joy of the region without the hassles of maintenance.

For first-time buyers who desire a carefree home with easy access to the recreational pleasures of the Lakes Region, this is a wonderful opportunity to become a homeowner.

The New Homes Division of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Verani Realty is marketing the community, with prices that start at an amazing $169,900.
