This is a small house with big neighbors. From the back deck of this cottage, or the screened-in porch, or the backyard there are views of a grassy knoll behind which lies the 136-acre Aaron River Reservoir.
This home has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,171 square feet of living space. It is listed for $314,900. View the listing. – John R. Ellement, Globe Staff
Both kayaking and small boats with no power engines are allowed. Alongside the reservoir is a trail leading into the 4,000 acre Wompatuck State Park, with 12 miles of paved bike trails.
The 16,000-square-foot lot ends at the Aaron River.
The cottage has been expanded over the years and its key rooms are updated.
Shown: A brick wall area in the family room.
The living room has oak floors, track lighting, numerous windows, and easily accommodates a couch, and a large entertainment center.
The sunny master bedroom has dark flooring, a good closet, and a door to the back deck. There is a full, showered bath.
The kitchen has an electric stove and decent counter space.
The kitchen also has room enough for a smallish four-person table.
The second bedroom is a long rectangle with a large closet, but needs freshening. It also has an exposed brick wall, a chimney vent for a wood burning stove, and a door to the screened three-season porch.
Since this is a cottage the exposed beams in the library/office are two-by-fours.
