Where do you find unobstructed water views for under $500,000? From inside this two-bedroom home that’s also near the northern head of the magnificent Eastern Trail. From the back patio, one can walk down to Autumn Pond and easily launch a kayak or canoe, paddling into the Nonesuch River and beyond to the marsh.

As a duplex, the home shares one wall with its neighbor’s garage to maintain privacy. Above its own two-car garage is additional storage space. The single-level floor plan includes an entry to the open living, dining and kitchen area. A sunroom faces the pond. The primary bedroom has an en suite bathroom and a one-year-old system powers radiant heat everywhere but the sunroom, which is heated by a gas fireplace.

Outside the sunroom’s sliding doors is the patio, which has a retractable awning. It’s an easy place to imagine oneself this summer, morning or evening, enjoying the sea-scented air, birdsongs and the ease of life in this quiet community.
