This charming home was built as a retirement home and is quietly nestled between the tall white pines. The house and barn were completely detailed with white pine trees carefully cut, dried and milled from the site. A large, native cobble fieldstone fireplace adds that extra snug feeling to the living space. A convenient wood box can be loaded from the outside to make things simpler and cleaner. There’s a small arched opening fireplace on the screened in porch to help take the chill off and extend the season. A large covered porch is perfect for watching the beautiful sunsets. Long-term guests are quite comfortable and able to tend to themselves with their own fireplace, kitchen and separate living space.
The barn is the perfect place for the owner to display and work on his cars and boats. The main bay is designed for two 30-foot boats to be stored side by side. The sixteen-foot high, weather tight double doors make getting the boats in and out safe and easy. There’s a year-round heated workshop, wine cellar and loft for displaying memorabilia. Truly a great guy space!
The cedar shingle and board and batten exterior complement the nicely landscaped grounds and terraces.
