In the auction process, the listing agents, who are honored and respected, are embracing the innovative twist to the sales process and appreciate that they still receive their commission.

Enter 961 Beaver Dam Road through the soaring stone entrance to your very own secluded lakefront oasis.

The 6,886 sq ft colonial estate is situated on over five acres, with protected forested parkland and 400 feet of footage on Beaver Dam Lake.

Spanning 57+ acres, Beaver Dam Lake, which is crystal clear and 58 feet deep in the middle, is private, with just 28 properties having access.

The lake is limited to battery powered and electric boats, which maintains the peaceful quiet. In addition to Sunfish and pontoons, residents enjoy the lake on their paddleboards, sailboats and kayaks.

There area three points of access to the lake, including a sandy beach area, an elevated bulkhead and deep water dock with a diving board.

Built in 1939, the house has a stone and clapboard exterior, slate roof and copper gutters. Inside, the home boasts five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms and spectacular lake views from every room on the main floor, as well as a lower level exercise room.

The driveway is flanked with two 30 ft stone wall and the circular driveway has a landscaped center island.

Just a few of the extra features include an invisible fence for pets, an ADT security system and an irrigation system.

As private as it is peaceful, your guests will also relish the scenery and activities this lakefront property affords.
