80 – 82 Echo Road
This custom builder’s home was built with careful attention to detail, and a balance of privacy and connection to neighbors. With a minimal shared wall along the front entryways and stairwells, both units get ample natural light and feel like single-family dwellings. Both units feature open first floor plans; front and back porches; full basements; first floor bathrooms; exposed brick chimneys; and birch wood floors. With direct access from the backyard to trails winding through 70+ acres of conservation woods and fields, this home is perfectly situated within the community. Two parking spaces for each unit are in the nearby parking lot, where homeowners may opt to build garages. Additional amenities include community gardens and a community building with a full kitchen, large multi-purpose room, and guest room.
Enter the first unit from the welcoming front porch into the spacious mudroom with airlock. You’ll find a sunny open floor plan on the first floor with a kitchen featuring a large pass-through to the dining area, a living room with a wood stove, radiant floor heating, a screened-in porch, and views of the forest. There are also a first floor office and a bathroom with laundry. Upstairs there are a master bedroom with a walk-in closet, two additional bedrooms, a full bathroom with double sinks, and a central family/multi-purpose area, all heated by cast iron baseboards. The third level attic and full basement provide plenty of additional space for storage and hobbies. The backyard shed is perfect for tools or chickens, and the mature berry bushes are full of fruit in the summer. A total of 1940 square feet in this first unit provides plenty of space for a growing family.
The second unit, totaling 1140 square feet, could be used for additional family members or as an income-producing rental. Currently, it is a rental with excellent rental history and a responsible, caring tenant. The first floor has an open concept design with a kitchen, a dining area with an exposed brick chimney, a living room, and an adjoining 1/2 bathroom. There are two bedrooms upstairs with a full bath with a tub. A full basement provides generous storage or hobby space. The shared front and back porches provide places for neighbors to meet while the modest side deck allows for privacy.

This home in the Two Echo Cohousing Community will provide you all these opportunities and more.
