Real estate agent Susan Roemer is listing an amazing custom-built home at 848 Borough Road in Pembroke that will appeal to every type of buyer.

The home sits grandly on 2.7 acres in a serene country setting and easily passes the first test – curb appeal. A rock wall borders the street, stone trim accents the front of the house and three-car garage, and a brick and granite walkway leads to a welcoming covered entrance and porch.

But it’s what’s inside this open-concept house that will take your breath away. Enter the two-story tiled foyer, then step into the light-filled great room. Three sets of glass sliders open out onto a large Trex deck and an incredible view of Kearsarge Mountain to the west. It’s the perfect place to relax and enjoy spectacular sunsets, or to sit outside with your morning coffee for a zen-like start to your day.

To the right is an enormous, bright, cook’s dream of a kitchen with the same glorious view. Turn back around and look up to the catwalk that overlooks the great room. You’ll want to explore every detail of this magnificent house.

Built in 2006, the home has four bedrooms, four tiled bathrooms, a formal dining room with shadowbox wainscoting and crown molding, a first-floor laundry room, and a completely finished lower level with access to the backyard. Shining hardwood floors run throughout the great room, kitchen and dining room.

The great room features soaring ceilings, a stone-enhanced gas fireplace, a built-in bookcase, and wiring over the fireplace to mount a large-screen TV.

The kitchen is a perfect combination of style and function, with plenty of cherry cabinets and granite countertops, a five-burner Caldera cooktop, and stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances (oven, warming oven, convection microwave, side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, and dishwasher). An island seats three so you can have company or supervise children’s homework while you cook. The adjacent eating area faces west and is surrounded on three sides by windows, and more windows let light flood into the cooking area.

The first-floor master suite has plenty of windows and access to the deck. Imagine stepping outside to that view first thing in the morning – what a wonderful way to begin your day! The luxurious master bath has a granite-topped vanity with double sinks, a spacious shower and a whirlpool tub. A walk-in-closet provides the finishing touch.

There are three more rooms and a full bath on the second floor. Room No. 1 sits over the three-car garage and can be used as a dormitory for several children or grandchildren, as a retreat for a teenager or college student, or as a TV and exercise room – the options are endless.

Room No. 2 is a spacious and light-filled bedroom, with a cathedral ceiling and ceiling fan.

Room No. 3, which commands the highest view in the house, can be used as an office or a bedroom.

The finished lower level has another bedroom, a three-quarter bath, a fully applianced kitchenette and gathering space with cherry cabinets and granite countertops, and a game/family room. Glass French doors open out to a patio and the backyard, which has abundant room to add a pool or a hot tub. Easy-care laminate floors are ideal for the in-and-out traffic, and high ceilings enhance the feeling of spaciousness. This area has the potential for an in-law suite or a separate living area for extended family.

Windows are a special feature of this airy house. A large window sits high in the foyer, letting light all the way into the great room. And in the great room itself, fixed-pane windows above the glass sliders fill the room with light even on a cloudy day. The garage has natural light even when the doors are closed because long fixed windows run above each of the three doors.

Central air conditioning and propane heat keep the house comfortable all year long.

There are two furnaces and two air conditioning compressors for separate climate control for the lower level and the main levels of the house.

This unique home with 4,564 square feet of living space offers plenty of privacy yet is only minutes to downtown Concord, I-393, I-93 and I-89.

Susan Roemer of Better Homes & Gardens: The Masiello Group, is listing this home for $489,000. For more information or to schedule a private viewing, contact Susan at 491-0833 or at sroemer@masiello.com.
