This truly unique property with direct access to trails on the 2,500 acre Crommet Creek watershed is only minutes from downtown Durham on one of NH's most scenic roads. The house blends seamlessly into the wooded setting with an interior which has the look and feel of a country lodge, with oak floors and natural wood beams. The open concept first floor flows from the modern kitchen through an informal dining area towards a sunken living/family room with magnificent stone fireplace. Also on the first floor are a formal dining room, a den/office, laundry room, 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths. Upstairs, the newly renovated master bedroom has hardwood floors and balcony with 240 degree views of the pond and gardens. With its elegant bathroom and huge walk-in closet, this space will be your own peaceful sanctuary. A large office & bonus room (possible "media" room) complete the 2nd floor. Step out back to the stone patio and firepit overlooking the spring-fed pond, a magnet for wildlife & ideal for winter ice-skating. On summer days, dive into the inground gunite saltwater pool surrounded by perennial gardens and enjoy the new pool house with floor to ceiling glass doors, a modern gas fireplace and potential sauna. The property also includes a brand-new natural wood 2-stall barn with attached garage and potential in-law apartment above. Imagine the wonderful lifestyle! All this minutes from UNH, Pease and major highways, and Boston only 1 hour away. Oyster River School District.
