This completely private and stunningly sited property features the Big Three in the world of real estate desirability: views, a water feature, and backed by state land. In addition to this trifecta, there is a generously-sized, architect-designed custom-built and turnkey house with many eco-conscious features. The well-constructed and well-apportioned house uses an eco-friendly geothermal system for its energy at a minimal cost. There is all the hiking you want -- and who needs a swimming pool when you have this deep and drop-dead gorgeous pond -- perfect after a long hike through the 47+acre parcel and the state land you seemingly own attached to it. But of course there is plenty of room to build an inground pool should you want that do that as well. And after a day of skiing at Belleayre or beyond, just slip into the hot tub. The house features generously-sized rooms, including a two-story great room with a soaring wood-burning fireplace, a custom-rustic chandelier, and lots of windows giving way to the mountains outside. In most rooms in this home nature and the outside is never visually far away. Entertaining is easy and almost a must: the up-to-the-minute kitchen includes Wolf cooking appliances and is open to the great room; the dining room itself can easily fit a table for, say, twelve. In the lower level is a media/games space with plenty of room to sprawl and relax by the wood-burning stove, or indulge your competitive nature over a game of pool. With the master bedroom on the main level, there is plenty of sleeping space in three additional bedrooms on the second floor and a large room for either office or studio use -- or even an additional bedroom. If that's not enough, there is more living space if you convert the walk-in attic, and don't forget the additional room on the lower level that could serve as yet another bedroom. The combinations and permutations in this home are many indeed. In addition to the three attached garages, there is an additional garage down by the pond. Perfect for the auto enthusiast or other hobbyist. Additional spots to relax and enjoy your surroundings include the smaller pond with seasonal stream complete with screened-in gazebo. All electric around the house is underground, so there is nothing to spoil your constant view of the pond, the woods, or the mountains. At the end of the day it is of course the visual richness of the land and its seclusion, with a rock-solid home in which you are free to ramble as well that calls.

Mortage Calculator

This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
