Year-round country getaway privately situated on over 2 acres of woodland and open fields with a meandering stream and mature cottage garden. Perfect spot for the outdoor enthusiast, culture-seeker or those looking to get away from it all and just relax.
The great room with vaulted ceiling, wideboard pine floors and wood-burning stone fireplace has a wall of glass doors that opens to the deck with views of surrounding countryside -- this is the gathering area and the place to be if you are cooking, eating or just hanging out talking, listening to music or watching a movie. The kitchen contains everything you could possibly want for preparing gourmet meals and hardy country breakfasts. Basic spices, condiments and accoutrements provided. The dining table comfortably seats six.
In the wintertime, a blazing fire is a must and is also used to toast marshmallows for s'mores. There is plenty of firewood and kindling stored under the deck for guests to use. The snow transforms the landscape and it is a wonderful time to take a walk along the babbling brook or a jaunt around the property via cross-country skis or snow shoes. There are 2 pairs of women's x-country skis and a pr of snow shoes for guests to use.
In summertime, the activity shifts outdoors to one of the two large decks, the lawn, garden and expansive woods. There are numerous seating/napping and dining areas on the deck and property. The front deck, off of the great room, is the more shady of the two. It holds the outdoor dining table, umbrella and chairs, large charcoal grill, 4 rocking chairs and 2 chaise lounges. The back deck, off of the master bedroom is always sunny.
There are 4 chaise lounges and a big umbrella and it over looks my backyard and wildflower garden. A favorite napping place is the hammock strung between 2 trees in the shade. New this year is a firepit and chairs that overlook the babbling brook.
Comfortably accommodates UP TO 6 people. The sun-filled master suite with queen-sized bed and country pine furniture, has its own attached full bath and glass sliding doors that open to a newly built large deck surrounded by lawn and gardens. A large second bedroom with two twin beds and a third bedroom with a twin trundle bed (twin bed expands to be a king or two separate twin beds) share a full hallway bath.
