House of the Week: Contemporary home on Thompson Pond in Spencer lists for $1.1M
SPENCER – Vacation at home with four seasons of waterfront relaxation and recreation on the 120-acre Thompson Pond. This open floor plan contemporary at 3 Nottingham Circle is located in the cul-de-sac neighborhood known as Sherwood Forest. It features lakeshore living from a large yard with private beach and dock, and two master bedroom suites.
The four-bed, five-bath home is listed with Donna Flannery of ERA Key Realty Services for $1.1 million.
In addition to its location in a “fantastic neighborhood of well-kept homes,” Flannery said her favorite features include the beautiful views from the many tiers of Trex decks facing the lake.
Homeowner Joanne Minardi spoke of the beauty of living on Thompson Pond.
“The lake is very peaceful – it’s not crazy busy here. Plus, there’s a lot of wildlife. It’s just beautiful to wake up in the morning and see all the wildlife out there,” she said.
It’s all about the view from most rooms in the house. The sunken living room features a vaulted ceiling and two stories of windows overlooking the yard and lake. This room also holds a unique two-story stone-faced fireplace and a slider to a house-wide deck.
The eat-in kitchen is warmed by honey-colored cabinets and wood flooring. It also has a slider to the deck.
The first of two possible master bedrooms is found on the first floor. Its full bath holds a jet tub and large tiled shower. A slider in this bedroom also opens to the deck.
An open-air stairway leads to a catwalk overlooking the family room and the second-floor master bedroom with a full bath, gas fireplace, and private balcony.
A second stairway from the foyer leads to a newer addition that holds two bedrooms and a full bath. The addition also offers a large, unfinished space above the three-car garage.
The lakeside portion of the lower level is lit by a bank of glass doors that step out onto a yard-level patio. This level offers a family room with bar, a home office, exercise room and full bath.
Mature shade and privacy trees dot the 1.44-acre property.

Flannery noted the location is quiet and somewhat secluded, yet it’s less than one hour travel time to Boston and Hartford airports. Downtown Worcester and its airport is less than 15 minutes away.
