The front door opens to a foyer which leads to rooms on the main floor with large double-pane windows looking out to the magnificent vistas of Middleboro Lake. The open floor plan makes entertaining both enjoyable for guests and hosts alike. The high-paneled ceilings (with over four-inches in thickness of high-quality insulation) give the house an airiness that is refreshing and full of natural light.

A hardwood floor covers the kitchen and the adjoining dining room. There is a second kitchen on the lower level with a stainless steel sink, microwave, new (2017) refrigerator, and granite-countertops, and attractive work cabinets that adjoins the large Family Room which is paneled and carpeted from wall-to-wall.

Wildlife are abundant on and around the lake, including resident family of swans, ducks, a great many song birds, a red fox, several nests of squirrels, an otter, numerous Canadian geese (in season), and Sandhill Cranes who come up from Florida each summer and fall. Lake Middleboro limits water craft to no more power than an electric motor, is of some 21 acres, has a depth of 42 feet, is swimmable, has great fishing, and, in winter, freezes over to form wonderful venues for ice skating, hockey, and ice-fishing; it is accessible from this home’s private dock. One unique feature of the house is that it is paneled with decorative, solid cedar planks as a veneer to the all-brick structure, and the large cedar garage doors were custom made for this house.
