Unique opportunity to escape the rat race & live in tranquility. Imagine coming home to 30 acres of natural beauty & absolute privacy! This comfortable home is spacious, bright & airy. The house has been loved & expanded over the years. Big windows & glass doors bring the outside in. Nature abounds in this diverse woodland with flowing brooks. Mature gardens give color all season, designed for minimal care. Why live where there is noise, traffic, & loud neighbors? This property gives you freedom from that. Step out the door for coffee by the brook in your bathrobe, no one will see you! Let your pets roam freely & your kids play in the woods or catch frogs by the stream. Cook up a storm on the 6 burner Viking gas range with new granite counters, & room to have a large gathering. In winter cuddle up to the stone fireplace or go to the heated oversize garage for a project. A total of 4 bedrooms & 2 baths + bonus room for guests/laundry/office. The spacious master is bright & secluded with attached library & deck. If this amount of land & privacy seems right for you then you have to see this! This home is a rare find on the market with this amount of untouched land & won't be available long. So many options for property use. Make an appointment & come see for yourself. The surprisingly low property taxes reflect the 490 Forest Exemption & may be lower than you are paying now! Close to commuter corridors, great restaurants, craft beer pubs, & shopping. Don't miss this one!
