The house and land are wonderfully private, but not isolated. Friendly, respectful and interesting
neighbors are close by. There is ready access to town affairs, population
centers and the interstate highway. The house itself is unusual, snug and
comfortable. It is extremely efficient to heat and simple to maintain. It is
warm in winter and quite cool and airy during the hottest summer days. The
surrounding countryside is handsome and varied. The land is steep and wooded,
and it abuts a very large uninhabited area of forest and field, which in turn
abuts the town’s 1,200 acre Brushwood Community Forest. As a result wildlife is nearby and plentiful,
hiking opportunities are immediate and the birding is excellent. This is a
wonderful country home and location for a single person or couple who love the
The first and second floors are large, open spaces that can
be arranged and used in a variety of ways. I have used the first floor as a
combined dining room/living room and the second floor as a bedroom on one side
of the stairway and an office space on the other side. I have used the finished
living area in the basement as a combined bedroom/guest room and work area.
