Enjoy the quiet lifestyle from this exceptional home located on the Conncecticut River that overlooks the valley. There’s a detached garage, a 52′ x 49′ barn and a great old blacksmith shop tucked in the trees. There’s a paved driveway, beautiful stone retaining wall and the pretty landscaping includes trees, shrubs and perennials. There’s a one bedroom apartment (an in-law apartment) and that could easily be reconfigured back into the entire home. The large eat-in kitchen includes a wood burning cook stove on a hearth and an efficient layout that allows everyone to gather with the cook. The master suite includes a dressing area and an exercise room. The bathroom has a whirlpool tub and separate shower. There’s a home office with separate entrance. This property includes 35 acres on the east side of RT 102, open fields that front the Connecticut River. (There’s an additional 157 acres available on the west side of RT 102).
Directions: From Canaan go south on RT 102 for 8 miles. Go beyond the Colebrook Bridge for approximately 3/4 mile, house off RT 102 on the left. See sign. Can’t see the house from the road.
- The kitchen is a cook’s delight: a Jenn-Air down draft cook top, or use that wood stove to simmer the stew. Off the dining area there’s a glass slider that leads onto the full back deck with those great river views.
- At the top of the stairs there’s an area that’s perfect for the computer and homework. There’s a room currently being used for crafts, but could easily be another bedroom.
- This home has a first floor office situated at one end of the house with it’s own entrance, perfect for that home business.
- There is an in-law apartment that consists of a large open kitchen/living area that includes glass sliders that open out to the rear deck. There’s one bedroom and a custom built bathroom.
The basement has access either from the inside or from the bulkhead. This is where the oil fired FHW heating system is located. This home also has an automatic propane generator in case the power goes out.
