Why build your dream Adirondack-style log home when you can buy the perfect one already completed and ready to move into!! This fabulous log home is not only ideal itself but so are the setting, location and views. Situated on 4.72± private acres with wonderful mountain views plus approximately 100’± of lovely Cascade Brook forming one boundary, all makes this the perfect Adirondack property. It’s ideal for either year-round, full-time living or simply use it as an amazing getaway home.
The log home has approximately 2,470± square feet with a super layout and large rooms throughout. The first level consists of an open, yet cozy great room with cathedral ceilings and a woodstove, nice-sized modern kitchen with pantry and a breakfast area looking out to the view, a foyer, an open dining room with more views, a full bath, guest bedroom, handy laundry room and an office space. Located off the dining room is a huge deck where you can enjoy those great mountain views while dining out or just relaxing with a good book. Steps from the deck lead down to a large yard.
Birch and wide-plank pine floors run throughout the home. A more recently built two-car attached garage with great finished room above is located just off the laundry room on the main level. The room above the garage could be used as an additional space for guests or as another bedroom.
The second level is accessed by stairs at the far end of the great room. At the top of the stairs you’ll find a large loft area which would could be used as a study, office, sleeping area or an additional living space. There’s another full bath on this level and the large, bright and airy master bedroom.
The basement level was originally where the two-car garage was located and this area could be used as a garage again if needed. After building the newer two-car garage, the owner converted the basement space into a large workshop on one side and uses the other side for storage. There is also a separate, self-contained, large closet which is great for additional storage uses.
Access to the property is conveniently located just off Route 73 and is halfway between Keene and Lake Placid!

The quaint village of Lake Placid with its fine restaurants and Olympic venues is located in the opposite direction on Route 73 by turning left from Owls Head Lane and is only a 10 minute drive in that direction.
