This wonderful center chimney antique cape sits on over 16 private acres with frontage on Cummings Pond, a very quiet spot to fish, canoe or kayak from your brand new dock. The 4 bedroom house with three and a half baths was built in 1775 and has been extremely well maintained, with many recent updates. Spacious kitchen with two sinks, commercial Viking range and dishwasher, two fireplaces with skylights and radiant floor heat. This well designed kitchen has plenty of windows and a beautiful walk out patio that both enjoy stunning views of Mt. Monadnock and mature landscaping with gorgeous granite walls. The master bedroom with full tiled bath are on the first floor just down the hall from the kitchen and there are three bedrooms and a full bath on the second floor. In the main house, the first floor has a large living room and dining room with wide pine floors and many quality ‘built-ins’. A newer three season porch off the living room gets lots of sun and looks over the pond in one direction and the peak of Monadnock in the other. Updated systems include a new boiler, water filtration, security system, full house generator, 200 amp electrical service, a drilled artesian well and newer septic system. The garage is currently set up as a woodworking shop and has a room above for storage or recreation. Located at the end of town maintained road, this exceptional property is very tranquil, yet convenient to Jaffrey, Peterborough, Rindge or Keene.
