Description

Wooded Get-Away with Pond. Situated atop a knoll with 10.10 acres of surrounding forest cupped around a 6 acre pond. Contemporary - Cape Two Story home offers the ultimate in privacy and quiet, yet is less than 1.5 miles from the center of town. Nine rooms, 3 large bedrooms, 3.5 Baths. Property has approx. 1100 feet of frontage on Carp Pond filled with hungry Bass! This unusual home was built in 1990 when the original 1940 home was dismantled. It features a 21 foot high cathedral ceiling in the Living Room, Barrel Dormer ceiling in the Master Bedroom and Heptagon shaped Breakfast area. Off the Family Room is a ADA compliant full bath with roll in shower, 36 inch pocket door, roll under sink and can be accessed via upper driveway and ramp to rear deck (potential In-Law). Home of a NYT best selling author, the Library/Study has built-in book shelves on two walls. Wrap around covered porch, deck and patio areas - great for outside entertaining. Home has solar panels on one section of the roof. Note on total heated square footage: House plans show exterior footprint as 3,501 sq. ft. Interior measured by laser Matterport System at 3211 sq. ft. This is different than the Town records.Across the pond is a remote and rustic pagoda writers studio with wood stove set on a cliff with full views of the pond and home - The perfect escape.Nature Lovers, fisher folks, even hunters. No place like this for one great price.
