Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

The house appears to be a small Cape Cod, but inside it opens up to Carnegie Lake from a spacious great room addition with surround views and a gas fireplace. From the three sets of French doors onto the deck, you can see all the way down the lake to Kingston, as well as overlook the estuary of Harry's Brook, with its alluvial fan and marshlands full of interesting wildlife including blue heron, egret, swans and even American Bald Eagles. Most other homes only look directly across it in the summer. But, from this home situated at the point, you can see the crew teams when they sprint for the finish line down by the dam. At this end of the lake it widens out for more activities, like canoeing, kayaking, fishing and bird watching. SHOW FOR BACK UP ONLY
