Moving to a new town in the late spring offers great weather for meeting the neighbors, and this home with deeded rights to Lake Massapoag has feathered ones. Recent area residents include Iceland and lesser black-backed gulls, according to Massachusetts Audubon.

The proximity to the lake is a big draw for this young yellow-and-white-sided home, which sits on a lot a tad larger than a half acre at the end of a long gravel driveway with a retaining wall. Shorefront access is via a deeded right of way in a neighboring lot, according to the listing broker, Richard Gorden of RE/Max Distinct Advantage.


The house is New England-weather ready, offering a farmer’s porch turned screen porch with floor-to-ceiling openings. The inner porch door opens into a foyer with a stairwell to the left. The oak flooring extends to the right into a dining room with a big candle-like chandelier, wide windows, and beadboard wainscoting.

A hallway with a ceramic tile floor flows off the dining space past a half bath (with beige ceramic tile flooring, a white porcelain pedestal sink, and a window), a closet, and the laundry room.

The hallway ends but the ceramic tile continues into the eat-in kitchen. Four pairs of casement windows and a windowed door to a deck flood the space with natural light. Recessed fixtures stand at the ready when the sun sets. Farmhouse-style features include a vertical beadboard backsplash and cream-colored walls and cabinetry. The counters are granite, even on the island, which sports cabinetry in a natural wood tone, a beveled top, and seating for two. The appliances are stainless steel, and the room offers a walk-in pantry and a crystal chandelier over the dining area.

The stairwell at the front of the house is the ticket to the second floor, but the first stop is a great room with three skylights, several windows, an 18-foot-high ceiling, a ceiling fan, recessed lighting, a pendant light with an elongated glass shade, built-in bookshelves, a gas fireplace with a white wood mantel, and oak hardwood flooring.


The top floor houses two suites. The primary, or owner suite, is bright, with a 15-foot-high ceiling, sky-blue walls, a pair of sconces, three closets (the largest has double doors), and a glass slider to a deck.
