Constructed as a modest cottage in the late 1980's this home was developed in 2004 to include a fabulous light filled great room, studio with cork floors, and a functional mudroom and heated garage below. The great room has a cathedral ceiling and is light filled even on the darkest days. The studio can be entered through French doors from either the great room or the dining room and is a functional space. There is porch accessed from the studio. A bright kitchen with an adjacent dining room, two bedrooms and bath complete the first floor. Upstairs is a generous landing, that could be used as an office or quiet reading area, and a large bedroom with full bathroom. Working from home would not be an issue because the internet is EC Fiber. Another deck is off of the kitchen that looks out to beautiful perennial gardens. The home is located close to Silver Lake in Barnard, about 20 minutes from Woodstock, and a quick drive to I 89 through Bethel.
