This fabulous property has it all and truly lacks nothing!! 53.50± acres of beautiful flat to rolling terrain in a private setting with great mountain views is just the beginning. Additionally, the property is bordered by the Giant Mountain Wilderness and has over 700′ +/- of brook frontage on Slide Brook. Slide Brook is a large year-round brook suitable for fishing. If you’re looking for a property which could eventually become a family compound, there are even two additional buildings sites!
The home itself has 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths and a total of 3,091 square feet. It features a wonderful layout and is definitely one-floor living at its best. The main living area, consisting of the living room, dining area and kitchen, is centered in the heart of the home. The kitchen is large and open with stainless steel appliances plus lots of counter space and opens to the dining area which has a wall of windows making it very light and bright. The living room is also very spacious and is conveniently open to the dining area and kitchen. There’s a nice fireplace with handy gas logs. Lovely French doors on either side of the fireplace open out onto a beautiful sunroom.
All the bedrooms are also quite spacious and laid out conveniently with two on either side of the main living area. An additional room is located just behind the living room and could be an office or a 5th bedroom. The master bedroom suite includes a large bath with a jetted tub and separate shower plus a huge walk-in closet. This bedroom can be accessed through either the sunroom or the hall. The second bedroom is also located on this side of the home with a full bath just outside of the door. The roomy third and fourth bedrooms are situated on the other side of the main living area with a large full bathroom in between.
Another huge advantage to the home is the 3 car attached garage. What could be better in the winter or on a rainy day than to just pull into the garage, walk up two steps and into your laundry/mud room which is only steps away from the kitchen? The full basement (3,000 sq. feet) is accessed through the laundry room. Steps lead down to a massive mostly unfinished space which is perfect for ping-pong, darts, lifting weights, etc. There is one finished room which is an informal den area. Additionally there is another partitioned off space which is an enormous work room. Although heat to the home is supplied by an efficient oil furnace located in the basement, the economical wood boiler located outside is a great option.
Also outside are numerous sheds of all sizes…large, medium and small!! There’s a convenient dog pen with a shed attached too. Plus a wonderful fire pit surrounded by Adirondack chairs and a backdrop of birch trees and pines. The setting is park-like and couldn’t be more beautiful with open spaces, garden spots and aromatic large pines.
