Lovely single-floor plan home situated in a park-like setting on 2.5 acres surrounded by a beautiful brook on one side and the Ausable River to the front! There are wonderful mountain views from the front deck, dining room and large enclosed sun room.
The original portion of the home was built in 1930 and greatly enlarged in 1989. The home has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The master bedroom conveniently includes one of the full baths. The other full bath, located off the living room, has been tastefully updated. As you enter the home, you’ll find a large, deep walk-in closet to your left for your coats and other items you’d like to store inside. The spacious dining room, with lots of windows, is to your right. The living room is just past and open to the dining room. There’s a gorgeous stone fireplace with gas logs in the living room. The master bedroom is located at the rear of the living room. There is also a very large bedroom on the opposite side of the living room. The spacious kitchen is to the back of the home and has lots of cabinets and all appliances including a new propane range/oven, dishwasher, new refrigerator and a microwave. You can look out the window to the lovely woods beyond the house while standing at the kitchen sink. The enclosed porch/sun room is conveniently located just off the kitchen so you can easily enjoy summer-time meals there or as just a place to relax.
There are numerous outbuildings including a one car attached garage, a roomy storage shed and an additional 2 car detached garage. The furnace and water softener are only five years old. The concrete septic tank was pumped and inspected in 2013. There is a large area just below the house which has two sides comprised of cross ties with steps leading down and was previously used for an above-ground pool. This area has many possibilities…perhaps a garden area or a nice location for a fire ring!
This property is located in an ideal location and setting. It’s very quiet with very little traffic yet only a few miles from Keene. All the roads are town roads and are plowed in the winter so there is easy access year-round. Lovely Walton Brook forms one boundary with approximately 570’ of water frontage. Although the house sits back away from the road, the soothing sounds of the brook can be heard at the house as well as the sound of the river flowing past across Gristmill Road which goes by in front of the house. The owner has confirmed with the Town of Keene that a small/tiny house with a small septic could be built on the 1 acre lot included in the sale and across Molly Nye Lane where Walton Brook comes down and joins the river. APA approval would need to be obtained.
Keene is within a two minute drive where you’ll find cute shops, markets and restaurants. Also only a 5 minute drive away is Keene Valley with its great trailheads for hiking/snowshoeing in the High Peaks as well as additional shopping and restaurants. The quaint village of Lake Placid with its fine restaurants and Olympic venues is a 20 minute drive. Skiing at Whiteface Mountain is also close by. International airports at Albany, New York, Burlington, Vermont and Montreal, Canada are all within a two hour drive.
