Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I own a Travel Agency for 30 years and love to travel. I really have been fortunate to see the world but I believe the most beautiful spot is this cottage which I live four doors away from-it is hard to describe the new lease on life you obtain after a week of being on the water and going to sleep after the most beautiful sunsets over the Berkshire Mountains. I am also a licensed realtor with the State of CT to sell and list properties

Why the Owner Chose Winchester Center:
It is in the best location of the lake with beautiful sunsets on your very private dock. Views from the great room are spectacular overlooking the lake. There is a vacant lot next door to you to add to the privacy. You are 240 feet off the road which is great for safety and serenity.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Stationary dock that does not bob with lake motion. Open kitchen and great room overlooking the lake. Extremely private for a lake house. Private deck overlooking dock with gas grill.
