This property is very conveniently located five miles from sought-after Livingston Manor and just a couple miles from dining and summertime live music. But even better, the crystal clear waters of Sand Pond, where there is deeded use for boating, swimming and fishing, is a mere stroll out the door.
Passing from the pretty covered front porch into the house, this center hall colonial presents the living room to the right and the kitchen to the left. The house itself is spacious, with numerous “public” rooms. There is a woodstove in the living room, and the space runs all the way to the back of the house. There is a formal dining room which then connects to the kitchen, but also provides access through glass sliders to the wonderful screened porch with skylights.
The eat-in kitchen features a large island/breakfast bar, gas stovetop as well as separate gas range, and an abundance of cabinetry. It’s large enough for another small dining table at the far end.
There is a large bedroom on the ground floor, with two roomy closets. It utilizes the bathroom with shower that’s just across the hall. Nearby a separate laundry room makes that task a breeze.
Upstairs the master bedroom is en suite, and that bathroom features a sunken jetted tub with shower. The two other bedrooms upstairs use a bathroom along that hallway that includes a tub/shower.
The basement is largely finished and presents a very comfortable hang-out space with glass sliders to the back of the house, not to mention a very nice half bath. The systems are neatly tucked away in a utility room off this open space. The house in general has quite a lot of closet and storage areas.
At the rear of the house is a sprawling deck, and there are a couple of access points, one of which is from that sunny screened porch. There is a hot tub with a view over the grounds, a large lounge area and an enclosed outdoor shower, all up on the deck. The rear of the house is completely private, with woodland stretching back from the edge of the lawn.
From the house it’s a 3 minute walk to grab your kayak or canoe, which you can leave down at the water’s edge, and take to the lake. It’s remarkably unspoiled and sparsely trafficked, making it a most peaceful, body of water. The initial wading is quite shallow, handy for small children, but eventually deepens, making for a delightful swim out to the float.
