This custom builder's home is sure to impress with its attention to detail and potential income opportunity. Designed for a balance of privacy and neighborliness, this duplex has only a minimal shared wall along the front entryways and stairwells. With both units featuring open, sun-filled first floors; front and back porches; full basements; first floor bathrooms; exposed brick chimneys; birch wood floors; and direct access from the backyard to trails winding through 70+ acres of conservation woods and fields, this home is a MUST SEE! Located within Two Echo Cohousing Community, a financially healthy and resident-managed homeowners association, this home comes with the added benefit of friendly neighbors, community gardens, and a community building with a full kitchen, large multi-purpose room, and guest room.
Enter the first unit from the welcoming front porch into the spacious mudroom with airlock. You’ll find a sunny and attractive open floor plan on the first floor with a kitchen with a large pass-through to the dining area, a woodstove, radiant floor heating, a screened-in porch, and views of the forest. There are also a first floor office and a bathroom with laundry. Upstairs there are a master bedroom with a walk-in closet, two additional bedrooms, a full bathroom with double sinks, and a central family/multi-purpose area, all with cast iron baseboards throughout. The third level attic and full basement provide ample additional space for storage and hobbies. The backyard shed is perfect for tools or chickens, and the mature berry bushes are full of fruit in the summer. A total of 1940 square feet in this first unit provides plenty of space for a growing family.
The second unit, totaling 1140 square feet, could be used for additional family members or as an income-producing rental. Currently, it is a rental with excellent rental history and a responsible, caring tenant. The first floor has an open concept design with a kitchen, a dining area with an exposed brick chimney, a living room, and an adjoining 1/2 bathroom. There are two bedrooms upstairs with a full bath with tub. A full basement provides generous storage or hobby space. The shared front and back porches provide places for neighbors to meet while the modest side deck allows for privacy.
