If getting away from it all and living in nearly complete isolation is your current fantasy, well…join the club. This Arts and Crafts chalet reigns over more than 22 acres in the Western White Mountains and it’s so private, in fact, that you’ll have to call the agent to learn its exact whereabouts.

The alpine views and wooded grounds offer up boundless space to roam (still while easily social distancing), and the house’s 5,700 square feet and 15 rooms aren’t cooped confines by any means. In the kitchen, an AGA stove, farmhouse sink, and antique Art Deco light fixture commingle in an eclectic mix of country and antique styles. The elegant-meets-rustic approach flows into the dining room, where a custom-made crystal chandelier hangs, and a sitting area, where a tumbled marble fireplace is topped with a barn beam mantel.

Settle into a rocking chair on the deck that encircles the house, or gaze out the windows from the comfort of your bed. One of the best spots to bask in the sunlight, though, is the conservatory. The aromatic room features radiant heating (no cold feet) and self-irrigation (no green thumb required), and listing agent Charles Crannell says it may even be possible to purchase the greenery and leave the bevy of plants right where they are. Actually, buyers can make the entire home turnkey by paying a little extra for all of the furnishings inside it, too. What could be more simple?
