A "woods' house" high in the hills of Lyme, surrounded by trees and meadow, in the area known as "Hardscrabble", this custom-built post and beam structure (Outback Post and Beam) would be a great home for a small family, artist, writer, or anyone seeking a beautiful, peaceful spot surrounded by nature. Trout Brook runs across the land, and there are views East and West of surrounding hills. The interior is open, with a tall window-wall facing the woods, much custom carpentry, and offers a relaxed lifestyle. Some finish work remains to be done. Property also includes a detached studio/guest cabin, small 1-car garage/barn, work shed, concrete slab intended for a shop-barn which was never built (24'x50' + 20'x20'), porch, patio and deck. A 3rd floor loft area could be used for sleeping quarters or quiet spot. Water currently supplied by long-serving dug well, but a drilled well is available. This property is a gem, and, needs to be seen to be appreciated. NOTES: 1. This property has been enrolled in Current Use, but the recently completed survey shows less acreage than necessary to be eligible for CU, so that status will need to be addressed. 2. The property is accessed by an "old road", which also provides a non-exclusive ROW access (the only) to the property behind. It is not clear from deeds seen what the ownership of the "old road" is--further research would be needed.
