You hear it all the time, “Everyone needs a getaway”, or something along those lines. In real estate it’s the most basic of clichés. But behind every cliché lies a deep truth. Everyone really does “need a getaway”.
We need the chance to get outside and breath clean air, to expand our personal space bubble outward, beyond the reach of our arms in a T-Rex position, out to epic proportions!
You need a place to do the slightly odd stuff that you really don’t want anyone else to know you do! Do you feel the yearning? You must sing show tunes! You must spend hours making origami vegetables! You must find the perfect acorn and gild into craft perfection! Let’s find you a place to do.
When it comes to the location of a getaway, privacy with good proximity to fun seems to be the sweet spot. As for interior spaces, some people yearn for a rustic feel that will allow them to drop out of the modern world, others yearn for modern indulgences. Maybe in your heart of hearts you’d like to have the choice between the two - based on the whim of a moment. There are many places in life where you “can’t have it all”. But if you’re looking for all of this in a getaway location, you’re in luck.
523 Mitchell Hollow Road in Windham hits the sweet spot when it comes to location. Set on nearly 2 acres of land with pretty mountain views and a babbling stream running along the boundary line there’s plenty of space to expand that personal space bubble, without having to wrestle with maintaining a larger parcel. Hop in your car or on your bike and head into the Village of Windham with its adorable antique shops, restaurants, golf course, and, of course, skiing.
The exterior of the house is unassuming, and marries perfectly with the landscape. Inside though, you’ll find some surprises. Old-fashioned charm and modern style are around every corner. The grand living room has gleaming hardwood floors, a comforting woodstove, and a coffered ceiling for when you want to relax in high style. The inviting kitchen has stainless steel appliances and a sun-drenched eat-in breakfast nook for intimate chats over coffee or hours of “crosswording”. The formal dining room is steps away from the kitchen and perfect for large gatherings. Also on the first floor are 2 large bedrooms and a renovated full bath.
The sunroom and family room will speak to your more rustic side, and have access to the rear deck for enjoying the outdoors. Upstairs are three additional bedrooms and a renovated full bath. If you really take advantage of the lifestyle this home can provide you’re going to end up accumulating some toys (YES). Appropriately there’s a 2 car attached garage with a tremendous storage area above and a workshop area behind. There’s also a full basement.
Whether you’re a sportsman, craftsman, adventurer, artist, or just want a place for you and all the people you love to getaway, you’ll likely find what you’re looking for just a few minutes outside the Village of Windham on Mitchell Hollow Road.
