Overview:

Located on a rise of land, behind the cliffs above the Gulf, the property forms a wind break in a hillside bowl, in which the cluster of buildings simply belong. Tastefully landscaped around the attractive home, the decks provide raised areas to enjoy the sun all year round. Entry on the upper floor is into a comfortable sun room that is protected from winter winds by sealed double pained windows. The views from either the front or back is of mountains or the Gulf, and surrounds the home with splendid perspectives. The three bedrooms reflect taste and comfort, the master having a shared fireplace with the living room, while the other two have a bath between them. A large family room below doubles as an exercise area and pleasant entertainment room. The large triple garage offers a spectrum of possibilities with its roomy interior, high doors, and 10 foot insulated walls with wood stove. A home for comfort and spaces, the outdoors being a perfect setting.

Comments:

GENERAL: An unusually adaptable, large garage provides a broad spectrum of possibilities, while the comfortable open home is compact enough for easier housework, but allows plenty of space for everyone in the family. The water source has a softener attached. The driveway is a right-of-way from the Old Cabot Trail.

Besides providing splendid perspectives, the placements of the home and garage were carefully engineered to direct water drainage away from both buildings. Water drainage is also directed away from the septic system.

The lower level is a very pleasant area; spacious and bathed in natural light from a number of windows. The 14' x 4' cold storage room is an added bonus. There is also roughed in plumbing for a kitchen or wet bar area.

INCLUSIONS: One of the inclusions is a Parabody 425 Multi Station Gym Work Out machine in excellent condition. Work out functions include Leg Press Leg Extension, Leg Curl, Inner/Outer Thigh, Lat Pull, Triceps, Biceps, Mid Row, Chest, Shoulder and more. It's all set up and ready for use in the rec room:

GARAGE: This is no ordinary garage. It is triple, measures 30' x 40' feet, is electrified, has insulated 6" walls and is heated with a wood stove. Additionally, one of the bay doors is oversized with a 9' height clearance., allowing for storage of larger vehicles.
