This quintessentially rustic Adirondack home fulfills your need for privacy in every season, without sacrificing modern conveniences. Set hundreds of feet off a quiet road on 8 private acres, you’ll never need curtains again. Solidly built, and lovingly maintained by one family, this house is move-in ready for year-round or seasonal enjoyment.
First Floor: The covered front porch just might be your favorite room in the house. At nearly 300 square feet, there’s room for outdoor living and entertaining. Inside, the efficient Cape Cod layout begins at the entry facing the central staircase with hardwood treads and a coat closet and opens to the living room with multi-dimensional windows great for natural light and a cross breeze.
Throughout this floor you’ll find hardwood floors and knotty pine walls and ceilings that add to the rustic character, as does a fieldstone covered chimney with mantle accent. A Pella slider opens to the spacious side deck and divides the living area from the open dining room with a ceiling fan and again, windows on both sides to let the natural setting in. It easily accommodates a large table as well as sideboards and connects to the kitchen.
The kitchen looks out onto the backyard with a window perfectly set over the sink. There’s ample cabinet and counter space with a breakfast bar for casual meals, stainless steel Kenmore appliances, and tile flooring. It leads to the open mudroom with coat closet (or pantry), side-by-side laundry area, and a door to the backyard with grilling deck.
Here, you’ll find a door to the first floor washroom which also connects to the bedroom as a proper first-floor master ensuite bathroom. It’s well-appointed with tile flooring, updated fixtures, a granite-topped vanity and a tiled shower with a framed glass door. The Master Bedroom has a lovely view of the front porch, windows on both walls, two spacious closets, and a glass door to the foyer.
Upstairs: The landing features wainscot on the sheetrocked walls, prefinished maple hardwood flooring, and a large linen closet. The bedrooms are comparably-sized each with the same hardwood floors, wainscot and large closets. One bedroom has a built in desk and shelves as well. A dormer on the rear roof houses the cheery, updated main bathroom which features tile flooring, a newer vanity with granite top, a tub/shower unit and a bright white wainscot on the walls.
Mechanicals: In Fall and Winter, this home is heated primarily with an efficient coal stove in the basement but there are electric baseboards throughout for supplemental heat, and there is an electric water heater. There is plenty of water from the 356’ drilled well and there’s a standard septic system with leach field, plus a dry well for gray water. An automatic sump pump installed two years ago, easily keeps the basement dry. It has poured concrete walls and stairs to a Bilco door. The home has DSL internet/phone and satellite TV.
Exterior: The home is sided in clear cedar with Sikkens stain and has a metal roof and Hurd windows throughout. There is plenty of yard space on each side of the home with raised beds for gardening and perennial gardens. Completely surrounded by woods, you’ll appreciate the quiet and incredible privacy with no other homes in site. A large shed complements the home for additional storage of lawn equipment.
