For Sale: 29 Old Acres Road, Holland, MA - Waterview and Beach Rights

I am pleased to announce the listing of 29 Old Acres Road in Holland, MA.  This charming home provides lake living at a fantastic price of $189,000.

29 Old Acres Road has much to offer.  This is a Ranch-style home built in 1965.  The home has 3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, and 1104 square feet of living space.  It is sited on .34 acres of land with water views from the back and side yards.

The interior of the home features an open layout with good-sized rooms.  Make note of the 29 foot living room, which has sliding doors to the rear deck.  There is plenty of space for a flexible furniture arrangement here.

This home has a centrally-located kitchen that flows into both the living room and the spacious dining room.  The dining room also has sliding glass doors that provide access to the cozy, front porch - a shady place to relax.  This layout allows for easy entertaining - while you are in the kitchen, your guests can talk with you from the dining room, living room, or deck.

The master bedroom of this home is sizeable:  13' x 11' with a double closet and nook that is perfect for placement of a chest of drawers.  Two other bedrooms, while smaller, provide you with space for family, friends, crafts, desks - you decide!

There is one full bath in this home, and like the other main living spaces, the bathroom is also quite large.  It has a tub/shower combination and solid surface counter top.  Did I mention that this room, and the entire home, is spotless?

The owners have taken great care in the maintenance of 29 Old Acres Road.  Vinyl siding and insulation were installed in the past 12 years, as was the septic system.  The heating system is forced hot air fired by oil.  With cool nights arriving, the sellers will make sure that the heating system is serviced.

Now for the fun stuff:  As mentioned, this home has water views of Hamilton Reservoir, a recreational lake in Holland, MA.  Plus, this home has deeded rights to a private neighborhood beach.  A path in the neighbor's yard provides access to the beach; however, the lot of 29 Old Acres Road is such that you could cut your own path to the beach right down the back yard.  You can also drive down to the beach, drop off your supplies, park back at the house and walk down.  Plenty of options.

The private beach is only for swimming, but if you own a boat you can put in at the public boat ramp at the north end of the lake - about 1/2 mile away from the house.

You may be interested to know that in addition to the boat ramp, there is a Fishing Pier at the north end of the lake.  There is a water skiing club that is very active on Hamilton Reservoir; you can see their ski jump in the lake during the summer.  In addition, many fishing enthusiasts like to visit the smaller Holland Pond, an easy drive from 29 Old Acres Road.  Holland Pond (also known as Lake Siog) has two small beaches, a park that is open on summer weekends, and a popular canoe/kayak put-in. 

Are you ready to set up a showing of 29 Old Acres Road?  Contact me, or have your buyer's agent contact me.  I'm sure you'll be delighted!

Kathryn, very nice listing.  Good luck with it and I hope you sell it quickly.

Good luck with a fast sale!  My good friends own a waterfront home on Old Acres road that we may be selling in the spring.  They are trying to upgrade to a bigger waterfront home with western exposure and a beach if you hear of any.  (Just not on the same lake)  They're really interested in Big Alum and South Pond...also will go up a little in price for Webster Lake if they find the right home.
