A home at 5 Nottingham Circle, Spencer, listed by Spencer agent Donna Flaherty was chosen as the Telegram & Gazette's "House of the Week."
Contemporary Spencer home on water's edge lists for $950,000
SPENCER — This 4,600-square-foot contemporary has lots of space for houseguests and entertaining as well as more than an acre of lush yard on the water’s edge of Thompson Pond.
The three-bedroom, 3½-bathroom lake home at 5 Nottingham Circle is listed with Donna Flannery with ERA Key Realty Services for $950,000.
Flannery says this hard-to-find contemporary is “the ultimate haven” that’s big enough for entertaining yet intimate enough for quiet evenings alone.
“It’s a nice open first-floor plan. There is space for a home office on every level, and the basement is completely finished for an in-law or guests to have their own separate space that walks right out to the lake,” she said.
The home was built in 2000 on 1.06 acres with 100 feet of water frontage.
“It’s a wonderful great lake community,” homeowner Cindy Krackovic said. “We’ve been very fortunate to be living in our vacation home. From morning coffee on the deck with breathtaking sunrises to fires by the lake, we spend a lot of time outdoors.”
As for the indoors, Krackovic said she likes how the house flows with its 10-foot ceilings and all the glass that brings in a lot of natural light.
“There are sliding doors all along the back of the house that makes for great water views. And the guest suite with game room and wet bar is perfect for entertaining,” she said.
Interior features include hardwood flooring, two kitchens, private balconies in two bedrooms and options for in-law or extended-family space.
It opens into a two-story foyer with curved wood staircase. The living room is warmed by a wood-burning fireplace and honey-colored hardwood floors. It and the formal dining room have three-bank sliders to the deck.
An updated kitchen with granite countertops, gas stove and center island with seating holds an informal dining area with a slider to the deck.
An office, laundry room and mudroom complete the main floor.
The master bedroom on the second level has a gas fireplace and a sitting area. The en suite bath holds a spa tub and step-in shower.
Two other bedrooms on the floor have sliders to private balconies, and an open space on the landing could be used for many purposes.
The lower level is another home within itself with sliders out to the yard and lake. It offers a kitchen, family room with pellet stove and wet bar, a bedroom, full bathroom and exercise room.
The house-length deck overlooks a lush backyard and glistening water views of the 116-acre Thompson Pond.
This full recreation lake offers four seasons of activities. Fish, swim, and boat from your private dock or sandy beach in the summer. Skate, sled and ice fish in the winter. The property is located near the Paxton border and has easy access to routes 31 and 122.
As a Spencer resident herself, Flannery says the town has a lot to offer.
“We have it all here but we still have a small-town vibe of 12,000. We have all the amenities such as all kinds of restaurants and outdoor entertainment in the summer,” she said.
Also of note, Flannery said, Worcester Regional Airport is about 15 minutes from the property, and airports in Boston, Hartford and Providence are within an hour's drive.
