What a gem! We're selling our house to pay for our son's special-ed schooling for kids with Asperger's Syndrome and other NLD disorders. This charming well-built house is situated on 5 very private acres on a wooded hill. Only one neighbor's house is visible across the valley miles away. There are closer neighbors, but the house is just tucked down the hill out of sight. If you like to make noise, go ahead. We had an annual band party for ten years & rocked the mountain all night long with nary a complaint! Within 5 minutes from the house you can be swimming or boating in one of the clearest, cleanest lakes in the USA, or shopping & dining downtown. Close to many other lakes, rivers, falls, ski areas, hiking, mountains, and other outdoor recreational activities. There are snowshoe trails on the property also. The view is to the west over Mt. Cardigan & Firescrew, so the sunsets are fabulous all year long.
If you enjoy entertaining, there are two new cedar decks, one at the back entrance & one on the south side at the large yard. A gardener's delight, the grounds are beautifully landscaped and perennial flower beds surround the house. There is also a brick patio at the front of the house with a fire pit to the side. Perfect for enjoying a campfire on a fall evening. The patio leads to a screened room that houses the Hot Springs Hot Tub.
The back deck leads into the house at & an entry hall with laundry & coat closet. Then directly into the kitchen which features Maple Cabinets & Green Glass pulls, stylish laminate counters & a tile back splash. The kitchen comes with a refrigerator & gas stove w/ a brand new microwave above w/ fan. An Atrium door leads to the screened porch which overlooks the mountains. It is one of our favorite places to enjoy a cup of coffee! Also off the kitchen is the bathroom which includes a linen closet & lots of storage in the sink vanity and mirrored cabinet. Both kitchen & bath have new, fresh coats of paint & a new flooring. Featured throughout the entire house is 6" wide floorboard & wide pine window trim with custom designed rosettes.
The living room & dining room feature Australian Cypress hardwood floors. The LR has cathedral ceilings & there are exposed beams in both. An archway from the LR leads to the DR which has a big bay window w/ views that capture your attention. You can spend many hours just watching the sunsets & the skies change. Good for the soul for sure. From the DR you can access the side deck which is a great place to BBQ & soak up some vitamin D! From the DR, a set of stairs leads downstairs to a bedroom, large walk-in storage closet, the hot tub room & basement.
In the LR is a staircase w/ custom designed wrought iron railing that leads to the loft upstairs - perfect for an office, reading or even a guest day bed. It's been used as an artist's studio & office. The loft overlooks the LR & leads to the large master bedroom. The bedroom has a new, fresh coat of paint also in a neutral buff tone and new closet doors. It features a line of triple windows looking to the views. Plans are being drawn-up to add a bath. It also has ample storage with a closet & built in cubbies. This bedroom, the LR and the porch all have beautiful V-groove pine ceilings.
There is also a large outdoor storage shed that can double as a guest cottage in the summer & fall in addition to another small out-building. Another attractive feature is the brook that runs the entire length of the property during winter, spring and after rains.
Perfect for vacations or year-round residence. Kids love this house!! This owner-built home has been well loved and taken care of. Don't miss out on this truly unique property and one time opportunity to own a piece of heaven on earth!
