Property Description

What a great cottage/small house. Post and Beam frame by Tom Musco of Royalston Oak; absolutely a work of art. Stress skin panels for high efficiency, natural cedar shakes for beauty and low maintenance. First floor completely open 32 x 17 except for the full bath in the back corner. Spiral staircase to 2/3 loft above providing private sleeping space. Full 3 bedroom septic and artesian well. Solar panels on south side of roof and a high tech control system to keep the batteries charged. YES, this house is off the grid. Lot is almost 1,000 ft deep with 360 ft of frontage, VERY private. And it backs up to TTOR reservation land that contains the Nichewaug Ridge Trail that goes from the Swift River just to the south, to Carter Hill. Just a fabulous trail for walking, XC skiing or mountain biking. Swift River with great fishing and swimming is a very short walk away. Extensive additional trails begin down by the river at the Steel Bridge. A fabulous, year round country retreat or sm home. This homes sits a short walk from the junction of 3 of the best trails in Central MA, let me show them to you.
