Tucked among gardens and mature trees on a knoll set back from the road, this expanded and remodeled contemporary home, has a feeling of being one with the natural world with its large picture windows overlooking an estate-like setting on 127.5 acres. Of the two lots of record 74.5 acres are unrestricted with 53 acres in conservation. Quality and attention to detail are evident throughout the 4-bedroom home with hand-dipped cedar shingle siding, all new Thermopane tinted windows, custom cherry cabinetry and beautiful birch, hickory and fir floors.  An open concept central core includes the well-equipped kitchen with center island and soapstone counters, breakfast nook, large dining area, and living room highlighted by a cherry paneled brick fireplace, and double picture windows to watch the sunsets. Off the main core is a spacious Master bedroom with walk-in closet, full bathroom in cherry and slate, southern pine vaulted ceiling and built-in shelving and cabinetry.

The opposite end of the house features a bedroom/study with full bathroom, and a large laundry room with utility sink, butcher block counters and cabinets. A four-season porch is centered between the dining and living areas with access to the back yard. About 100’ of IPE decking runs around the back of the house and includes open areas with built-in benches and two covered porches at either end.  The light filled second floor offers two bedrooms, attic storage and a full bath.

Entry to the house is via an inviting enclosed front porch with, bead board wainscot, slate floors, and wood ceiling as well as entry from the two-car garage with its full-sized attic storage above. The entire house is heated and cooled by a geothermal system. An 18 x 20 barn can accommodate two horses or storage. Organic hay fields, woodlands, stonewalls, perennial gardens, and a brook comprise the property which is located on a quiet mile-long tree-lined cul-de-sac with only six residences and over 200 acres of conservation land. Downtown Peterborough, a cultural hub is just 3-miles away.
