Welcome to Our Compound Sale Page
We are selling the whole compound, the large two story Gambrel Roof House with upscale open living space and various workshops, the Detached Garage with two very large bays and two smaller bays and the second floor ready to be turned into living space. The compound is 32 acres and includes a 3 Bedroom Ranch which is set up to meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The house is built on a foundation of 4' frost walls with a floating slab for the first floor.
The rest of the house is stick construction using 2 x 6 framing for the walls and some very large trusses for the floor joists and roof trusses.
We opted for radiant floor heat. This has served us well and since the floor and everything tends to radiate heat, we can keep the thermostat at about 66 and feel comfortable. The foyer and first floor bath room have thin mortar over the radiant pipe. The Craft room has pipe laid over reflective insulation under the wood floor. The second floor has the pipe stapled to the bottom of the plywood sub floor with foil insulation below the pipe. With 6 inches of insulation in the walls and 24 inches in the ceiling, the house stays nice and warm.

The Main House has some interesting features. Many of the lights are on X10 remote control, the ceiling fans in the MBR and fireplace area are remote control and the whole house fan is on a timer and remote controls. The heat thermostats are programable in all six heat zones; MBR, Guest Suite, Living Area, Foyer and shop. Also, the garage doors and entry doors are all on programable key pads.
An interesting feature of the property is that being in Burnham the High School is Main Central Institute, a private boarding school with students from around the world.

These are the various controls for the X10 devices.
The Universal remote sits at the top of the stairs because one button turns off(or on) all X10 lights.
The smaller ones are used elsewhere, the larger white one sits between our chairs. In the winter when I hear my wife open the garage door,
I turn lights on and off as I hear her come through the house and up the stairs.

These are the switches at the top of the stairs.
The number sticker on the plate is the circuit breaker for the switches.
In this case it is on the Generator Breaker panel, breaker 9.

Not all devices are controled via a switch. Some lights simply plug into a control plugged into the wall.

This is the Whole House Fan Timer. It can be set to 1, 2, 4, or 8 Hours or Hold.

Whole House Fan
Once the timer is set, this control turns on one or both fans.
The air comes in through whatever windows we have open and gets blown out through the attic cooling the house down.
The cool breeze feels nice and when you go to bed the timer runs out the fan(s) turn off.

The Master Bed Room Fan and overhead lights are controled by this remote.
There are two identical controls that control both fans and lights.

In addition the garage has an entry pad on the outside which is programable for each door allowing entry to the garage without having to go inside.

The detached garage also has an entry pad with seperate codes for each door.
There is also an outside receptacle and an outside switch for the light up in the eave shining on the dooryard.
11 / 18
The three outside doors to the house have programable keypad entry locks.
They are not hard to program and hold multiple codes so a code can be set for when guests are around and then the code removed.

The detached garage has a light switch outside to turn on the lights for going up the stairs.

There is a similar one under the MBR Sink.
