1940s English Stone Cottage on 5+ acres
This unique home is a rare blend of old world craftsmanship with modern conveniences.
Its warm, rustic charm and beautiful secluded property make Black Pond House an ideal weekend retreat for relaxing and entertaining or to enjoy year-round.
It is solidly built of stone, selected wide chestnut planks and exposed oak posts and beams. It features 3 stone fireplaces, an open kitchen and family room with walkout to brick patio and deck overlooking a large pond, creek and waterfall. It was featured in the April 1952 Good Housekeeping magazine for its charm and design.
Black Pond House has recently been updated to provide modern amenities - new kitchen cabinetry, gourmet kitchen appliances with 6-burner gas stove, radiant floor heating under Italian ceramic tile in kitchen, laundry room and baths. Central A/C, monitored alarm system and electrical and plumbing have been brought up to code.
It's quiet, peaceful, warm in winter and cool in summer.
Black Pond House is named for the pond it overlooks. The pond is approximately 1/4 acre and is fed by a natural forest creek. It supports a thriving ecosystem of small native fish and a few resident ducks, frogs, turtles and an occasional heron. Wildlife abounds in the surrounding woods.
