56 Lake

$719,000 56 Lake, New Milford, CT 06776
DIRECT WATERFRONT IN CANDLEWOOD TRAILS. This is a very rare find – a lakefront cottage with a dock in desirable Candlewood Trails. Much of the home is original and rustic, so some updating will be necessary. Septic was inspected by the owner 4/27/23 and functioned properly, so that not a concern! The covered porch off the living room along the front is perfect for lake and sunset gazing. The living room, open from the kitchen, has a high ceiling open to a loft area. That loft continues to another room that could be used for storage or some bunks. The branch railings add to that cozy lake-cottage feel. Lots of cupboards dot the house, no space has gone unused! The stone steps from the parking area to the lake were installed in the last couple of years, and are in excellent condition, all the way to the sea wall and your dock. There’s even a shed by the dock for all your water toys! No homes across the lake make for great stargazing and privacy. Offered for the first time in 40 years, this is being sold as-is and is in probate, but is very far along. Come make this place shine in time for summer fun.
