The paved driveway is lined by a series of large mature spruce trees and leads over Terwilliger Creek. Complete privacy awaits as you pull up to the house which can’t be seen from the road. The large 5-bedroom, 2.5-bath home features an updated kitchen and baths and character throughout with tons of storage and room to stretch out. The “Side Gable Colonial” has been expanded over the years to provide additional living space perfect for family- gatherings. There is a covered breezeway between the large garage and the house. As you enter the house you are greeted by a spectacular sitting room with full windows that provide incredible light. The high vaulted ceiling includes box beams. Sit in the sun, read a book or just gather with family for a quiet evening in front of the fireplace. A dutch door opens to the eat-in kitchen which was remodeled just 7 years ago.

There are 2 tillable fields that are the perfect location for hobby farming or pastures for goats, cows or horses. The terrain runs uphill from the house with a series of flat benches. There is roughly 30 acres of timber with oak, maple, cherry, ash and hemlock trees. Throughout the property there are also a number of apple trees. There are multiple trails throughout the property and with some light clearing they could be cleaned up and expanded to provide excellent hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing, horse-back or ATV riding. Hunters take notice, this property sets up very well for deer, turkey and other small game. Heavy sign was seen throughout the property and multiple deer were witnessed while taking photos. There is an overgrown pasture in the middle of the timber that is level and could provide an incredible location for a food plot. There are numerous stand locations that provide good access and take advantage of the natural terrain. The pond was once stocked and could be the ultimate fishing hole. Cast your line from the small dock, dangle your feet in the water or jump in for a refreshing summer swim. The pond overlooks the primary field and the views of the Adirondacks in the distance.
