Step into this warm and inviting 3 bedroom, 2 bath contemporary Cape built with green construction techniques and you'll feel like you are living off the grid in the mountains of Vermont! Located on a quiet residential road just minutes from the center of town on a gorgeous 1.6 acre lot. Cross the babbling Gulf Stream brook and enjoy hiking, birding & serenity on over 500 acres of the Whitaker Woods/McCann Farm preserved by the N. CT Land Trust & the CT State Forest. State of the art, energy efficient construction with double-walled roof/exterior wall framing & insulation, triple-glazed casement windows with double low E coating, insulated Thermomass foundation, solar hot water and a rooftop solar array which produces power in excess of consumption! The first floor features a bright open floor plan with kitchen/dining room, an office, large living room w/wood stove overlooking the nature preserve plus an enclosed porch leading to a deck and terraced gardens. There are hardwood floors throughout, a 2nd floor deck off the master and 3rd bedrooms, a 2nd floor laundry and a family room in the walk-out lower level. This home is naturally cool in the summer and warm in the winter due to its south facing orientation and 2' roof overhang. A Mitsubishi ductless split AC/Heat pump system was installed in 2016 for additional cooling power. Park your vehicles in the 2 bay traditional 22' x 36' timber-frame garage/barn with storage loft, workshop plus an attached lean-to.
