Oh, what a view! From the moment you step inside you’ll be transported by the beautiful vista from a wall of glass sliders. In summertime, look out over the lush wooded ridge. In wintertime trace the curve of Crum Creek between the snowy trees. Warm afternoon light and beautiful sunsets will be yours all year long. Soft neutral colors allow the view and your décor to set the mood. The spacious great room encompasses a large living room and a dining space large enough for a family-sized table. (The current owner has taken advantage of the flexible dining/living space to create the cheerful reading nook you see in the photos.) The tidy and functional kitchen has fresh flooring and counter tops as well as some newer appliances. An in-unit laundry cupboard makes wash day a breeze. The bathroom features updates including a new medicine cabinet and lighting as well as new tub/shower fixtures. Keep all your fluffy towels in the handy hall linen closet. The spacious bedroom offers another glorious wooded view as well as a full wall of closets. Move right in and enjoy all the amenities the Strath Haven has to offer. Ideally located in a small college town – just blocks from the beautiful campus and arboretum, town library, shops and commuter train station – this lovely home makes a perfect setting for living, working and entertaining, all with a breathtaking wooded backdrop.


Strath Haven residents enjoy life in a highly sought-after community with swimming pool, library, bicycle storage, workshop and van service.
