This stunning Adirondack log home was designed by Cedar Knoll Log Homes and built with high-quality logs milled from a locally owned 4th generation lumber company in 2008. The 3 bedroom, 2 bath home sits on 1.79± acres off of quiet Bell Meadow Way in Keene and has 1,762± square feet of convenient living space. Located on a mostly wooded lot, the owners have cleared a fabulous mountain view which can be seen and enjoyed from the large wrap-around deck and also from the interior of the home in dining area and great room.
The home has a wonderful floor plan. The great room is two stories with knotty pine ceilings, flat interior log walls, oak hardwood flooring with in-floor radiant heat and a stone fireplace complete with an intricately carved, beautiful mantle and an efficient woodstove. The Pella sliding doors let in lots of natural light and contributes to the open and airy feel of the home. The kitchen has oak hardwood flooring too, Kraftmaid cabinets, beautiful new granite counters, propane stove and a two-tiered breakfast bar. Adjacent to the kitchen is the nice-sized dining area with an antler chandelier. Access to a lovely screened-in porch is just off the dining area.
Down the hall from the main living area are two spacious bedrooms each with large closets. The beautiful oak hardwood flooring continues into the two guest rooms. A full bath is located outside the two bedrooms and has tile flooring, knotty pine walls, a shower/tub combination and a unique clear glass bowl sink. Also located in the hall is a linen closet and the basement door.
Stairs lead up to a large loft space which overlooks the living room and is ideal as an office/study area with plenty of space for bookshelves. The spacious master bedroom suite is also on this level and is accessed through French doors creating a nice, private room. There is also a walk-in closet and a full bath with double sinks. There are lovely views to the backyard and woods beyond.
Recent additions to the property are an extensive driveway improvement and parking space expansion, convenient two-car garage, septic re-design and re-location, new backup generator, deck and railing expansion, stunningly beautiful and professionally landscaped yard, lovely fire pit area and an attractively fenced-in ½ acre of land perfect for dogs.
