Have you always wanted to live in a home tucked deep in the woods? Enjoy peaceful lake views and access? Be surrounded by 100’s of acres of protected forest with miles of marked trails? YOU'VE FOUND IT. This home is truly an oasis, your own personal sanctuary. Completely surrounded by 588 acres of Timberland Preserve and built into a gentle hillside, this sun-filled, 2-level contemporary home is laid out to take advantage of its setting. Best views are from the upper level, so that's where the main living areas are, starting with living room featuring a dramatic wall of windows which frames the wooded hillside sloping to the lake below. Soaring ceilings create a sense of spaciousness and well-being in here. A cozy dining area adjoins this space and the kitchen is conveniently located just beyond, with newer stainless appliances and access to a newly rebuilt screened porch. A short hall leads to 2 bedrooms and full bath. The larger bedroom has lake views - with its size, it would make a great master. Another sunny bedroom has wonderfully private forest views. The lower level features a family room with wall of windows also overlooking hillside and lake, and has a wood stove and built-ins. A 2nd full bath is on this level along with a 3rd bedroom. This room is spacious and sports a sunroom with separate exterior access, making it ideal for an in-law suite, 2nd master, or home office. Multiple outdoor living spaces. WHOLE HOUSE GENERATOR. Only 10 mins from downtown Guilford.
