Furnished lake-front cottage in turn-key condition with 155 feet of owned shoreline on the west side of Lake Morey with views up, down and across the lake. Located 10+/- feet from the lake the property included an elevated 28' x 8' lakeside deck, a second 20' x 12' ground-level deck, detached 2-car garage, paved driveway, paved walk ways, aluminum dock with deep water access and swimming raft. On the first level are two bedrooms with full bathroom in between and the kitchen/living area. Below is a full walk-out finished basement with full bathroom and large multi-purpose room with a separate double-door entrance leading directly to the lower deck and dock. Town records indicate this is a two-bedroom residence. The septic is self-contained and requires annual pumping. The residence was completely rebuilt with a new detached garage in 1994 following a fire. The property is ideal as is, but also offers a valuable opportunity to expand by trading one type of impervious surface for another under the guidelines of Vermont's 2015 Shoreline Protection Act. For example, the garage area, currently assessed for only $14,000 could potentially be redeveloped as residential space - subject to septic and local permitting. And by taking away some of the areas covered with black-top, even more space could be used for residential expansion. In short, this offering includes both the option to expand, which because of the Shoreline Protection Act, will likely increase in value over time, as well as a turn-key residence that can be purchased and enjoyed right now. Views across the lake are to the forested hillside Morey Mountain, 148 acres of which was recently purchased by the Lake Morey Foundation and conserved from development by donating this special wilderness area to the Upper Valley Land Trust.
