House in Winchester, USA

       We live 20 minutes north of Boston in the lovely suburb of Winchester. It is a perfect location for exploring New England.  Winchester has a beautiful town center with a rail station, shops and restaurants and is just a 10-minute walk from our house.
       We enjoy plenty of privacy, since our house is at the end of a dead-end street that borders a wooded area, terraced garden and stream. We love our yard and  often eat outside on one of our two patios, or we entertain in our cozy garden house with a wood stove overlooking the stream. About a mile away is the Fells recreation area, a wooded area with hiking and biking trails.  Much farther north, about an hour and a half away, are the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The closest beaches are about 45 minutes away, and Cape Cod is about an hour and a half away. 
We have four bedrooms (two queen beds, one full, one single), and three bathrooms (two with full baths) and a finished basement and playroom with television and lots of toys and games for the kids. 
This house would be great for a family that wants to be near Boston but also needs space for kids to run around. We have great playgrounds and a water park nearby and we spend as much time as we can outdoors in the summer, as winter lasts far too long in Boston!
