Both houses, each with its own separate two-car garage, are hidden well off a town-maintained road. Sculpted gardens throughout the compound area include mature herbs and perennials. A focal stone patio with firepit, provides electric and water ready to easily add any additional features. Enjoy the peaceful views of the changing seasons from every window of both houses. In this natural park-like setting, a stream with waterfalls runs past the main house, cascading over 800’ down to the Genegantslet Creek below. There are easy to walk trails meandering through a forest of hardwoods and hemlocks. With over one-third of a mile of frontage to the middle of stream, there are several nice deep clear pools for great fishing and swimming. Huge mature oaks produce an abundance of acorn mast, and heavily used deer runs stretch along the river by these oaks. On the back end of the property, additional easy to access trails wind throughout, and plateaus in the terrain provide places where the deer come in, feed and bed. Nicely managed timber of a mixed variety could produce additional high value future timber cuts. Abundant wildlife here, includes whitetail deer, wild turkey, ruffed grouse, pheasant, songbirds as well as small game.
