Property description

Our charming, historic home was built in 1939 and while having been updated, it retains its original vintage feel. Stepping through the front door, you enter the pine paneled living room with its beautiful stone fireplace. The sofa and loveseat beckons family game playing in the summer and cozying up to the fire in the fall and winter. The kitchen, with its built-in pantry, corner cabinet and glass front cabinets, is fully equipped for all your cooking needs. Stepping out of the kitchen, you find yourself in a screened-in porch with table and chairs and 2 rocking chairs...the perfect spot for a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening while enjoying the lake view across the street. Off the porch is a gas grill for year around barbecues.
Steps from the living area is a large office with built-in desk, bookshelves, flat screen television and a queen sleeper sofa. Also on the first floor is a full bath with tub/ shower and a bedroom with 2 twin beds.
Up the beautiful pine staircase you will find 2 large bedrooms with cathedral ceilings and a full bath with shower. One bedroom has a king bed and the other has a queen bed. Both bedrooms offer plenty of storage and closet space. Also on the second floor is a laundry with full size washer and dryer.
There is a one car garage detached garage on the property and a full unfinished basement with plenty of storage.
Our home sits on a corner lot and the 1/3 acre property is beautifully landscaped with perennial gardens, lawn, flowering trees and even a wishing well. It is a lovely spot to sit and enjoy the summer breezes with a glass of lemonade.
Directly across the street is the Birch Groves Community Association Clubhouse, beach and docks. Full access to the Club is available to our renters for no charge.
Summers are spectacular at Candlewood Lake, but fall, winter and spring are also exceptional. Fall foliage, wine tours, pumpkin and apple picking and fall festivals abound in the area. Winter brings ice skating, snowmobiling, cross county skiing and downhill skiing. Mohawk Mountain in Cornwall Ct. is a 30 minute drive from New Milford. And of course, spring brings the budding trees, flowers and singing birds back to the area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are a retired couple living on the west coast of Florida. While raising our daughters in Westchester County, New York, we spent many wonderful summers on Candlewood Lake. Missing the Northeast and lake living, we purchased our home with the intent of spending summers and fall away from the heat of Florida. When not enjoying our lake home with our children and grandchildren, we offer it to others to enjoy as well.
