Set beside an idyllic pond on the sought-after South side of Carlsle, this spacious country house stands on 4.34 acres. Privacy is assured by the setting and the scenic drive that curves past a sunny meadow. Both the large living room and the family room have fireplaces and water views. A renovated kitchen is at the center, and a sunny office opens to its own deck. The first floor master suite has an excellent dressing room and French doors to a water-view deck. Fresh paint and refinished floors add to the appeal. Upstairs are three generous bedrooms, one with private stairs, and each with en suite bath. The well cared for grounds include open lawn, flowering perennial beds, shady trees and gleaming pond, home to ducks, geese and turtles. The owners have used their pond for fishing, canoeing and ice skating parties. Close to some of the state's finest schools, this property offers a rare combination of privacy, handsome architecture and the natural beauty of a waterside setting.
