About The Sirkin Family
We are 4 siblings who grew up spending summers, holidays, ski breaks and many wonderful gatherings of friends and family at this classic New England house. Our mom bought the property when I was a baby. Three of us now live on the West coast and my sister Susannah lives in Boston. She is pictured here between the 2 lovely daughters of our caretaker, Lisa.
The Sirkin Family purchased this farmhouse in 1961
Why The Sirkin Family chose Crescent Lake
Our parents both have New England roots, on our mother's side going back to the Pilgrims, and our father was born in Vermont. Our dad was a US diplomat and we lived in Washington, DC when our mom went looking for a place to have as a New England base for the family. The property was just what she was looking for; a charming old colonial era house down the end of a dirt road on 100 acres, outside a quaint historic town, with a gorgeous lake and skiing nearby.
What makes this farmhouse unique
Peace and tranquility, rustic antique charm, lovely private swimming pond, birch trees, nearby lake, hiking, skiing, and boating.
