A country setting in a cul-de-sac neighborhood, within walking distance to Vesey Park and the public beach on Pleasant Lake!
This spacious home, built in 1975, was renovated a few years ago, and combines open living spaces, large bedrooms, and a private, wooded setting.
The front door leads to a staircase up to the main level, where you'll find a large kitchen with granite countertops and new stainless steel appliances, as well as a skylight to bring in natural light. There are plenty of cabinets, as well as a walk-in pantry.
The vaulted ceiling, accomplished in warm wood, provides an open feeling to the kitchen and the adjoining dining/living room area.
Just off the kitchen (next to the refrigerator) is a 14 x 12 screen porch, plus a deck, so dining al fresco is always an option.
The dining area is roomy enough for a large table as well as a sitting area.
The main level also includes the four bedrooms--two at each end of the house, including a master bedroom with two double closets and a full bath. The other three bedrooms are all the same large size (13 x 12), and also have double closets, so no one gets shortchanged.
The main level also includes another full bath with a convenient laundry area.
Head down the stairs from the main level back to the entry, and you'll come to one of the seven wonders of the world--or at least one of the great features of this home...
...the Family Room.
You pick the adjective!
You could fit a pool table, a ping pong table, a TV and gaming system, a snack bar, and plenty of cushy furniture in this space.
The stone hearth for the wood stove is a natural focal point for the room (the wood stove, however, is not conveying with the property).
A wood stove would provide a secondary heat source, since the house features an oil furnace with three-zone forced hot water system.
Just off the family room you'll find a convenient half-bath, and beyond is an extra room that could serve as a mudroom, a craft room, or an office.
This is a good place to discuss storage. Although the house is on a slab, beyond the mudroom/office you'll find about 280 square feet of unfinished space (currently used as a man cave) that serves the purpose of a basement. And because of the design of the ceiling on the upper level, you have two attic spaces. Combined with the large closets, storage under the screen porch, and the upper level of the barn, you'll have to buy extra junk to fill up all the storage space this home offers!
It's easy to enjoy the lovely setting of this home--just step from the kitchen out to your screen porch or the deck, which is the perfect spot to view the changing colors in the Fall and listen to the birds in the Spring.
Another great feature of this home is the newer 3-stall barn, which features water and electricty, plenty of storage overhead, a carport large enough for a boat or trailer, and a 12-foot overhang on the rear to provide shelter for horses or storage for snowmobiles, four-wheelers, and other toys.
The barn opens to a sizable corral, and you're just a short drive away from horse-friendly Bear Brook State Park, which has 10,000 acres and 40 miles of trails.
This cul-de-sac neighborhood is also within walking distance of the town beach at Vesey Park on Pleasant Lake, which is open from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm in the warmer months, with lifeguards on duty.
The location also affords easy access to Portsmouth to the east or Concord to the west.
