This well maintained 1920’s-30’s seasonal camp is surrounded by 4.3± acres of lawns and woodlands. There is a lovely lawn with a path down to and along Spruce Hill Brook, which runs year round and winds through the property for over 1000 feet. In the southeast corner of the property is a 0.4 acre legal building lot which was added to the seller’s ownership in 2009. It formerly housed a trailer and has its own driveway. A wetland in the southwestern part of the property is a haven for birds and includes a small pond. The lawns surrounding the camp are large and level enough for croquet or badminton games and the southern exposure is ideal for vegetable and flower gardens. A working outhouse is nearby. A garage, woodshed and sheds at the edge of the lawn provide storage space.
The one story camp was the site of ‘Aunt Dora’s speakeasy’ back in the early years, but was later converted to a camp. By 1969 it had grown to a three bedroom camp with a large ‘stand-up’ attic with potential to be improved for additional rooms. The cozy living room is at the front of the camp and has a large fireplace. Walls there and in the rest of the camp are natural wood or paneling. Floors are hardwood in the living room and bedrooms. The kitchen dining area is 20’ x 14’ overall, with vintage linoleum floors, sink and electric stove. Thermopane windows have replaced the old windows and there is insulation in the attic, as well as in the walls of one bedroom and the north and west walls of the dining room. The camp is heated with baseboard electric heat. The sellers currently do not have internet, but can easily be attainable. Water for the camp still comes from the brook, pumped uphill by equipment housed in an insulated utility shed just outside the kitchen door. Owners bring jugs of water for drinking. A septic system was installed in 1991and has a 1000 gallon tank and a 600 gallon auxiliary. There was a new roof 13 years ago and the chimney was repointed in 2012. Beneath the house is a 2 foot crawl space with a trap door in the bathroom floor so that one can see that the crawlspace is dry. The dining room and 3rd bedroom, which is currently used as a study, was added in 1969 on a poured slab.
Included in the price of the camp are most of the furnishings, including beds, dressers, dining table, couch, etc. Tools are negotiable.
