Charming Fern Lake year-round house with beautiful lake views and modern updates. Fern Lake is a gem of a lake and great for swimming, fishing, paddling, skating. With a 5mph speed limit, it's also a quiet lake! The house has all rooms on the main living level with a full, walkout basement which could be upgraded to more finished space (currently used for storage and utilities) and a walk-up attic that also has potential for more finished space. Some of the updates include flooring, windows, paint, bathroom, water filtration, heating system. Access to the lake is owned and there are stairs from the porch down to the dock. The house is accessed via a deeded ROW from Route 53 (for this and 2 other properties). There's a conventional septic system and the water comes from Fern Lake with a UV light and sediment filter. Nearby you'll find the Minnie Baker trailhead (Chandler Ridge/Leicester Hollow) and the Silver Lake trailhead. Both great trails and good for hiking, trail running, mountain biking, nature loving! Plenty of skiing options nearby too. The artsy/brew pub town of Brandon and Neshobe Golf club are less than 10 minutes away and the college town of Middlebury is about 15 minutes north. Only 3 hours to Boston, 1 hour to Burlington and soon enough (July 22) you'll be able to take the Amtrak from NYC to Middlebury - so this lake front home could be your vacation home OR live here all year long! Be sure to see the Virtual Tour and the drone photos!
