About 45 Harrington Road
You don’t have to sacrifice comfort, size or style in order to lower your carbon footprint.This home was mindfully planned in every detail. The home is set back from the road in the middle of the 7 acre lot to afford complete privacy.
The home was painstakingly sited to maximize solar gain not only to warm the house in the winter through the large south facing windows but also for the newly installed photovoltaic panels on the roof. The backyard has large raised organic beds for vegetables or flowers as well as a hand pumped well.The first floor open floor plan is spacious, bright and inviting. The newly refinished wood floors practically sparkle all through the home.
In the large living room there is a artistically sculpted fieldstone chimney and mantle with an attractive and efficient soapstone wood stove large enough to keep the entire home warm all winter.The first floor bedroom has vaulted ceilings and a whimsical loft. The room has its own door out onto the stone patio and with the windows open you can hear the gurgle of the decorative fieldstone lily pond.
There are two more very large bedrooms on the second floor that share a bath. These rooms also have high ceilings and plenty of closet and cubby space beneath the eaves. Sunshine comes in through the windows all day keeping them bright from dawn until dusk.
The newly finished basement has bamboo floors, a wood stove and more than enough space for whatever you could want to put in a basement.
The large laundry room is big enough to fit the entire neighborhood’s clothes all at once or to have additional workshop space with its own bulkhead exit outside. Remember homes with root cellars where you could store the product of your gardening labor so you could enjoy what you have grown all year round? Well this is the modernized version of that with lots of wall space and a vent to keep the temperature perfect for long term storage. Besides that there is a dry storage room
The home’s systems are state of the art and energy efficient. The solar panels are brand new and can provide almost all of your daily electrical needs. The propane fired tankless hot water heater is on demand and only heats water when you need it. And should the power go out in the winter the home has a newly installed whole house generator to provide power until the power company fixes the lines or the sun comes up.
Do you ever wish you had a separate studio for quiet contemplation, your own clubhouse, writing your memoirs or making birdhouses? There is a building for that too, set away from the house but close enough that you don’t need a coat to get to it. It has electricity and is in the shade during hot summer days.
