Now is your chance to live in beautiful Amherst NH! Nestled in the woods just down the road from 600 acres of town conservation land and trails as well as the Peabody Environmental Center, this lovely home is set on over 2 picturesque acres with flat back yard surrounded by woods and fronted by a pretty stone wall. Loved and maintained by the current owners for 30 years, you will love the functional kitchen with large peninsula and lots of storage that works well with the welcoming family room that centers on a stunning reclaimed brick fireplace and newer Jotul(r) wood stove. Wide pine floors carry you to a bright formal living room and on to the well-sized dining room with large bay window overlooking the postcard-worthy backyard. Upstairs is a large primary suite with 3/4 bath along with 3 other large bedrooms, all with beautiful wood floors and serviced by a tidy full sized bathroom, just the right size for happy bath nights! The red, "every-man's-dream barn" offers loads of additional storage space for vehicles and "toys" and even more heated living space upstairs--perfect for hangout space, office or guests. 7 mo old roof, newer Andersen 400 windows and insulated vinyl siding, lovely wide-pine floors and brand new garage doors--too many updates to list! In addition to the top-rated schools, quick access to commuting routes, shopping and hiking, you will love the magical backyard, peaceful morning stillness and regular visits from all manner of fauna. Come see for yourself!
