Welcome to Toad Hill, a 2 bedroom 2 bath modern pre-fab set high up on 5 acres approximately 2 hours from the city. Tucked out of the way but still close to hiking, biking, restaurants and shops. Please note there is NO AIR CONDITIONING in the house.
The upstairs features one loft-like open room with sliding doors on either side, filling the space with light and views of the ridge. Modern kitchen with dishwasher, convection oven, gas stove and almost any kitchen gadget you can think of. New gas grill and smoker, fireplace, delicious well water, Wifi, satellite TV and land line telephone.
The top outside deck features a dining table with seating for 8, an outdoor lounge and speakers. There are both built in indoor and outdoor speakers and a portable ipod speaker for use on the bottom deck.
There is a master bedroom upstairs and a second bedroom downstairs with bathrooms on both floors. There are no curtains in either bedroom.
The internet and TV are both satellite, which means that in inclement weather they can both stop working and makes the wifi not great for streaming videos. Cell phone service is patchy.
You will not see any other houses from the house but you may hear them from time to time. It is a very quiet and peaceful property.
We have no A/C and no microwave.
Our home has been featured on Amazing Vacation Homes, Nightline on a special on pre-fab homes, in the Walker Art Museum and the cover of Pre-Fab Now. It was designed by the architects of the original Dwell Home.

Hi! My husband Paul and I are pretty avid travelers. We both like to explore new places, meet new people and eat everything in sight. When in NYC and not working, we see live music, hang out with friends and try out new restaurants. We're both cyclists and I've dragged him on some hiking trips as well.
