    Description

    Looking for something different? Check out this custom built and lovingly maintained New England style Cape Ann home, offering three bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. You can tell as you drive up onto the dyed macadam circular drive with custom style garage doors, this is a property that's dearly loved. Located down a quiet country road near Lake Nockamixon, this home and it's environment will speak to a select few who enjoy living in a natural setting. The specimen plantings blend beautifully with boulders throughout the landscape as well as the stone walking paths that meander throughout the yard. The owners take great pride in the property being an Audubon Certified Backyard Habitat as well as it being a birders paradise! In addition, a water feature located next to the patio incorporates two ponds, one with a waterfall spilling over the rocks in a constant recycling of water, offering a soothing gurgling sound. Many migrating birds have made this a stop along their way...a favorite memory of the homeowners is a scarlet tanager, rose breasted grosbeak and a Baltimore oriole all taking a bath in the water fall at the same time. Truly a delight to experience. This property just oozes tranquility. Once inside, you'll find a free flowing floor plan starting with a custom built gourmet 'Cooks' Kitchen complete with a hammered copper farm sink, granite counter tops, built in stainless steel appliances and refrigerator, custom made lighting, antique glass panels in the cabinets, gas cooking, hardwood floors, an island in the center plus an eat in bar area. The Family Room is located next to the Kitchen and has an antique brick wood burning fireplace and hearth (gas available) and hardwood floors. A passive solar Solarium off the Family Room invokes the feel of the outside being invited in, while adding an additional warm and welcoming living space. Dining Room is right around the corner from the Family Room and has entrances on both sides. Centrally located on this main floor is a bonus room that's currently being used as an Office, and offers wonderful views of the landscape and woods. Make it a Library, a Playroom, Exercise room or whatever you wish. A half Bath is located next to the Office and a main floor Laundry/Mud Room with storage cabinets leads you to an over sized 2 car Garage complete with pull down stairs wide enough to easily handle things being stored up in the attic. Back inside, the U shaped stairs to the Second Floor is located behind the fireplace and showcases a brick wall for added character. Once upstairs, you'll find an Owner's Suite with a large walk in closet complete with built in organizers and bureau plus a spacious Owner's Bath. More use of the brick in the bath adds a natural element, along with a skylight bringing in abundant natural light. Double sinks, updated shower and natural looking floors make this a true compliment to the home. A center hall cedar closet runs approximately 12 feet long and allows lots of storage options for everyone. Two additional Bedrooms offer good closets and multiple windows, plus an updated hall Bath complete the Second Floor. The basement is set up for utilities and storage. Over sized outdoor shed provides ample room to store your things so you don't clog up your garage. You'll appreciate the paver patio located outside the Solarium giving you an opportunity to enjoy the natural landscaping, wildlife wandering through, the birds, and general peacefulness of the property. This home will be the retreat you can't wait to come home to.
