Three-night minimum stay required at this house on five acres of mature woods with boulders and a stream. It is a custom-designed home with all the fixtures, colors and details chosen by the artistic owner. It was just completed in March 2013.
The steep gables make it look like a ‘storybook’ house from the outside, while on the the inside they form a high vaulted ceiling making a star shape above the loft. The olive green color makes the house blend in with nature and it looks like it has always been there.
The house is Cottage and Arts & Crafts slyle, but also includes Victorian and contemporary elements. Many windows and a large screened porch look out on a private wooded view with many boulders scattered about. The pillars of the front porch are trees that were cut from the land.
The main floor consists of an open kitchen/livingroom space with a gas log fireplace. The ceiling of the kitchen and entryway is paneled with oak boards from the trees cut from the site. There is a master bedroom with queen size bed and entrance into the shared bathroom. The other bedroom has a day bed with trundle and a desk. The floors are 5 inch Chestnut Oak boards.
Upstairs is a loft, bathroom and bedroom with queen size bed. In the loft is a built-in desk, Wi-Fi and a wireless printer. Cell phone service is not good, but there is a land line with unlimited long distance.
This is a cozy home for those who desire to be away from the hustle and bustle of town. There is central air and heat and ceiling fans in every room. There is a 40′ flat screen TV with satellite and a bluray disc player. There is an iPod dock with speakers and radio and a small boom box for playing CD’s with radio.
There is a lovely stream which forms one border of the property just a few minutes walk from the house, either through the woods or on the road. It is a steep walk, but fine for anyone in shape. There is a flagstone patio which fits into the rocks that surround it, and a campfire area.
