Owners’ comments

2 weeks left before it goes off market in October

ONLY Bank pre-approved with letter or cash buyers. Please respect that I will only show to very few people...there is still a pandemic...terribly sorry. You must call 1st. I have more photos then the limit of 8.

Lovely view of the bay and the village!  2 bedrooms 1 bath on main level. Rustic/industrial LOFT with bedroom, bath, kitchen in walkout basement. Country quiet but Walk into heart of village in 3 minutes, no other listing offers that!!!

A warm cozy atmosphere welcomes you as soon as you open the door to this charming home!

Your eye is immediately drawn to the high cathedral ceilings done in natural pine which showcase a large half moon window centered  above a stunning front wall of oversized picture windows which look on to a lovely view of the bay and village!

The main level is a true post and beam construction built in 2007. The open kitchen has plenty of timeless wood cupboards including a smart and functional well crafted pantry. At the center is a large island with breakfast bar. There is room for a large dining table making this a perfect place to entertain.

Patio doors lead to a fair sized deck for barbecuing, outdoor dining and country enjoyment.

Wide natural maple plank floors run throughout the great room and the 2 bedrooms. Pine trim and cedar wood doors compliment the neutral color recently painted and chosen to adapt to any decor.

The bathroom has a fully tiled walk in shower with built in bench and two showerheads. The bathroom floor features radiant heat.

The lower level is a bright walkout basement featuring 9 foot ceilings with plenty of windows and 2 sets of double French doors that open onto a large ground level deck. The basement is finished with reclaimed barn wood and reclaimed galvanized but rusted tin from a 150 year old barn salvaged from La Grange in Wakefield; some eclectic repurposed Wakefield history. (if you do not appreciate this history/beauty this Village house is not you :) The pine board walls are from a local small lumber mill. The esthetic I call "rustic industrial" a concrete floor with radiant heat adds to the industrial feel.

This space can easily be transformed to a separate living space with its own entrance, full kitchen,1 bedroom, large full bathroom with freestanding claw foot tub with shower and laundry room.

This home is a hidden gem on a quiet private road with only 6 houses and wonderful neighbors. This is a peaceful location surrounded by nature yet just a few steps to the heart of the quaint village of Wakefield.

The village highlights are local specialty boutiques, great restaurants, live music venues and the Mill hotel and spa. Come for a visit and see why Wakefield is so loved !

Are you certified pre-qualified or self funded? That will be my 1st question. 2nd will be "what other houses have you seen directly in Village?"

The steps involved in buying a property

Could this property be “the one”? Here’s an overview of the steps involved in becoming the owner. These steps and the legal implications remain the same whether the property is purchased from an individual or through a broker.

1
Financing

One of the first things to do when looking for a property is to get a mortgage preapproval from a financial institution. The goal is to determine borrowing capacity, and as a result, the price range to be looking in.

2
Offer to purchase

The property suits the budget and needs? Time to submit an offer to purchase! This document sets out the price, the elements included in the sale, the possession date, the conditions of purchase and all other information relevant to the sale.

3
Conditions of purchase

The offer to purchase generally includes conditions. The most common are the property passing an inspection, the buyer providing proof of financing and the buyer selling their own property. Once the listed conditions are met, the property is considered sold.

4
Property transfer

The last step is to see a notary, who is generally chosen by the buyer. This real estate professional drafts the deed of sale and ensures that the interests of all parties involved are respected.

Once the deed of sale is notarized, the new owner gets the keys to the home. All that’s left is to move in!
