10-acre property an outdoor oasis
FEATURED HOME: A pond, a brook, views of Monadnock, and lots and lots of space
Sandwiched between pristine Dublin Lake and the iconic Mount Monadnock is a 10-acre property encompassing three living spaces and the security of seclusion. A small pond lies down a hill in the backyard beside an open field and gardens. The sound of a nearby babbling brook complements the breathtaking views of the property.
The primary residence, built in 2000, begins with cathedral ceilings in the opening foyer. Rows of windows showcase the southerly views of Mt. Monadnock while providing natural lighting. The open floor plan includes a spacious kitchen with updated appliances as well as a central vacuuming system. Both formal and informal living and dining spaces are included, the latter including dentil molding and a raised panel fireplace. There are two bedrooms and one master suite, all with gorgeous views of the natural surroundings.
The master suite showcases a generous window peering up at Mount Monadnock. The suite includes a walk-in closet and jacuzzi for her, and a large closet and private washing space for him, with a shared shower. A small office space is also attached to the master suite.
For functionality, a large mudroom with washer and dryer flanks the two-car garage. Across the hall lies the entrance to the lower level of the house. The lower level includes two bedrooms with a shared bath, a large sitting room, and formal spaces for living and dining. Game room and exercise rooms are also present; both spaces could be used for storage.
The second building, erected in 1974, is a barn that has been converted to a welcoming guest house. The views of Monadnock are present in all three of the home’s bedrooms. A massive fireplace in the living room brings a homey feeling to the downstairs living space. New windows, heating system, and insulation assure that the house will be protected from the elements come winter. The guest house also includes a full basement, perfect for storage or finishing if desired.
The final building on the property is a one bedroom cottage at 880 square feet. Inside is the one bedroom and two and three quarter baths. The cottage has a wood frame and asphalt shingling, constructed in 1974.
A step down to the back gardens and field tie the three buildings on the ten acres together. The gardens have been diligently maintained over the years and lend added beauty to a backyard that already boasts a view of Monadnock. The small pond is rich with wildlife and plants, and there is a clear-cut area located just beyond its tree line. The field is accessible by a path and has the ability for the future residents to have further gardening area.
The property is located at 21 Old Marlborough Road in Dublin, and is currently on the market for $995,000. The Dublin Lake Golf Course and public boat launch are just steps away.
