Request Info on This Listing* | More Listings
Oh my goodness, this home is just spectacular! Nestled into a mostly wooded 10.9 acres, this home is designed and positioned to take the best advantage of the wonderful tidal water views. The large, energy efficient windows allow the views in, and keep the UV Sunrays and weather out. Sit on your raised screened porch with Travertine Tile flooring and enjoy many meals or relax after work, while admiring: the water and the wildlife, including eagles, ducks, geese and deer. Both, my team and the sellers vote, hands down, that this is their favorite location in the home – and there are plenty of amazing locations from which to have chosen. Aside from the spectacular scenery from within, there are walking, hiking and cross-country ski trails traversing the wooded areas and accessing the waters edge. Along the way there are hidden seats, and swings for resting and appreciating the peace and quiet and the beauty of nature. Even though you can ONLY see water from 3 sides of the home when tide is high, the natural view of the trees, give you lovely view from the front of the home as well. Inside the home is an environmentally friendly “green” home, with Geothermal Heat, Superb Insulation, unbelievably low energy bills, specialty windows, and an abundance of natural materials. The kitchen features, top of the line Stainless Steel Appliances, Tile flooring, painted Maple cabinets, Tile Back Splash, and ample Granite counter tops.
