The concrete in the basement is extra thick. This home has not one but three distinct heating systems ensuring the highest in energy efficiency every day! There are two separate furnaces that run the forced air system. One is oil fired and the other is wood fired. You can use the wood furnace on a daily bases if you wish or simply turn on the oil furnace is you’re away for the day or on vacation. There are also two mini-split heat pumps providing economical heating in winter and refreshing air conditioning in warm summer months. So with three distinct systems the choice of heating is yours! There is also a generator hookup installed and ready to go.
We’ve left one of the best features of this property to the last, the vast park-like setting and exquisite landscaping which encompasses approximately five acres of the property. There is a scenic man-made, clay-lined pond (with resident turtle) in front of the house adding so much to the curb appeal of the property. The pond is surrounded with mature deciduous trees, moss and grass covered grounds that are so attractive it would be a photographers dream setting. This is the perfect setting for your own private picnic area. Over 20 acres of the property is wooded with mature trees and it can be subdivided after purchase if you wish.
