New Hampshire is home to America’s most famous mountain – Mount Washington, where the earth’s highest winds (up to 231 miles per hour) are regularly recorded on its 6,288-foot summit. The mountain was first scaled by European settlers in 1642 and the nation’s first hiking trail was constructed up its flank in 1819. That route was followed by a coach road, now the world-renowned Mount Washington Auto Road, in 1861 and the Mount Washington Cog Railway in 1869.
Luckily for most land buyers seeking privacy access to rural New Hampshire property is not quite so easy for the general public. Most of that land is forested – only neighboring Maine has a higher percentage of timberland. Some of the state’s most rustic and affordable property lies north of the fabled White Mountains in the Great North Woods where less than one in twenty New Hampshirites reside.
New Hampshire has the shortest seacoast in America – only 18 miles. What passes for population centers in the state are clustered within an hour’s drive of the Atlantic Ocean in this southeastern region of the Granite State known as the Seacoast. Some of that ocean water is used to cool the reactors of the Seabrook Station Nuclear Plant near Portsmouth that cranks out 30% of the state’s power.
Inland water sports enthusiasts head for Lake Winnipesaukee, the state’s largest, with 72 square miles of surface water. Boaters can explore its 253 islands. Winter brings ice fishing and ice boat racing and snow sports in New Hampshire’s popular ski areas.
There is no sales tax in New Hampshire and no personal income tax so the taxman won’t come a-knocking until that down payment is placed on a piece of Granite State property.
