Private lakefront home is 40 miles to Boston, with 300' on lake, a dock, and boat ramp. The house is on a point of land offering lovely views from the two decks and a screened porch of the lake. The 1st floor BR has a comfortable double bed and the large 2nd floor BR has 3 twin beds. In the den there is FP, HD TV, DVD and internet access. 40’ in front of the porch is a dock with water depth of about 9 feet at the end, great for swimming, fishing and boating. In addition, there is a small gravel “beach” area, with a gradual slope, great for young children plus there is a boat ramp on the property for your convenience.
Being at the end of a dead end road, we have a great feeling of privacy with 2.7 acres with 300' on North Pond. Abutting the property is a 500 ac Peppercorn Hill conservation area with many walking trails. The lakes surface is about 234 acres which is an average of 9 feet deep feet. We see an abundance of birds: including many ducks, a Great Blue Heron, swans + Eagle.
Testimonial: Hi Bob,
We just got back home in Illinois last night and miss the house on the pond already. It is a beautiful lot you have there, on what is probably the prettiest part of the lake. We had a great time exploring the lake by canoe, hiking the trails on Peppercorn Hill and swimming off the dock. I was really surprised at how warm the water still was for September, and was in it almost every day. We enjoyed putting the lounge chairs out on the floating dock mid-morning and lying in the sun. I could not get over the lack of mosquitoes...and they usually like me a lot.
I think one of the things I liked best about 95 Crockett is that it’s been left alone as it was probably 40 years ago. Walking in I was immediately transported back to the mid 60’s when on occasion I would visit cottages owned by friends’ families on a lake or down the Cape. The knotty pine paneling, the screened porch, etc.
North Pond, has been in our family since 1930, when my grandfather had bought in the Great Depression. Ever since, it been and still a place where our families have relax and been nourished. For the last 18 years we have rented to others during the winter months and part of the summer, since we are able only to be there for about a month. Renting has enabled us to make a number of improvements and allow others to be blessed.
There are reports that it is great lake for bass large and small. 25 minutes to Worcester, 45 minutes to Boston & Providence, 35 minutes to Old Sturbridge Village and Blackstone Valley National Heritage Corridor. Southwick Zoo in Mendon, New England's finest zoo, is 10 miles away. There are many Golf Course and restaurants close by. Brimfield Flea Market 30 min. away.
Abutting to rear on the property is Peppercorn Hill, commands a fine view of North Pond, from which flows Mill River, separating Upton from Milford. Pratt's Hill and pond, and a smaller pond, beautify the scenery on the north of the central village.
Upton has many historic buildings and sites. There are some hidden historic Indian sites and some beehive cave chambers. On a clear fall day, you can see the tip of the Boston sky line from Peppercorn Hill. Call the owner 978 882 4028
