Right at the end of the driveway is this handy storage shed. It can use a coat of paint but is otherwise sturdy.
Although the shed appears to lean it is simply because the footing in the back is higher than the one in the front. It would not take much to level if you prefer a level look. Behind the shed is the propane tank used for the gas range. With four fireplaces you might want to load up the firewood storage before winter hits.The stone wall running behind the shed delimits the conservation land boundary.
The remaining photos are what you can see as you walk around the house to the back yard from the garage. The portion shown above is the side yard facing northeast.The large tree marks the separation between the side yard and back yard. Although what you choose to call the different areas of the yard might be entirely different, the labels used here are simply to give you an accurate feeling of the vistas from where the photos were taken vis-a-vis the site and orientation of the house and the fact that only the walk-out door to/from the garage accesses the area shown here.
This view is turning more to the east. Conservation land lies behind the trees about 3/4 accross the photo. The neighbor's property is beyond the right corner. The size of the cleared yard lends well for the construction of a personal tennis court, ball field, or playground.
This photo shows a stand of trees and ground cover at the rear corner of the house. This is the point where the side yard ends and the back yard begins.
This is the eastern portion of the back yard. The neighbor's property line follows the tree / fence line along the right edge of the photo. Conservation land borders the entire side and back yard.
From the same corner of the house and looking towards Concord Road we have ample space for an inground swimming pool and stand of feeders for observing birds - see how many of the 300 different species in Massachusetts pay you a visit.
The retaining stone wall was erected to keep rain water runoff running eastward down to the conservation land and away from the house and makes this area of the back yard a nice spot for a playground set or perhaps a picnic table or patio set.
Above the retaining wall a bench has already been placed. As you can see from all the photos of the yard, your family will enjoy living here and taking full advantage of the professionally landcaped yard, its open spaces, and treed perimeter. Come walk it in person!
