We loved the look of this lodge-style home with covered front porch when we saw it for the first time. With level lawn to the front and side, the property dips in the back into substantial woodland. Around the rear of the house there are two connected decks, accessible from numerous rooms, which provide loads of space from which to barbecue, hang out, and drink in the amazing distant views. The exterior is a combination of full log and pine board, and the three front gables bathe the house in natural light.
From the entrance foyer, where there is a handy powder room just off to the right, the artfully executed central staircase links the main floor to two large (16 x 24') bedrooms with shared full bath (with tub/shower) upstairs, and to the large, unfinished walk-out basement downstairs.
The great room boasts a two story stone fireplace and towering windows that look out the back of the house, maximizing the exposure to the views. There are two exterior access points out to the deck. This space flows into the dining area, by a sliding glass door, and to the kitchen with its cooktop in the center island/breakfast bar. A one car garage is easily accessed directly from the kitchen.
On the other side of the house, a generously proportioned ground floor master suite which enjoys access to the deck, includes a bathroom with shower, and large walk-in closet. The washer and dryer are cleverly camouflaged in a double bi-fold door closet just outside this room.
An additional six acre lot is available (see details in sidebar).
This property is just a few short miles to town and to the Delaware River.
