This incredible waterfront compound is located at 142 & 144 Hopewell Road in Alton, NH and is situated on over 16 acres of land overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee with 1,594 feet of water frontage. It is owned by Bob Bahre, who is the former owner of New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Bob Bahre, who rescued the Oxford Plains Speedway in Maine in the 1960s, parlayed his investments in auto racing, banking and real estate into purchasing Bryar Motorsports Park in Loudon in 1989, which a year later opened as the New Hampshire International Speedway. In 2008 Bahre sold the track to Bruton Smith of Speedway Motorsports for $340 million in a cash deal.
