WINDHAM – Not only is this one of the finest homes in town, it must also rank high among all the properties that are available in southern Maine.

Designed by John Calvin Stevens, and built in 1929, the one-level waterfront home served as a restaurant decades ago, and has been thoroughly, beautifully renovated in recent years. The property has 200 feet of sandy-beach frontage and a permanent pier on Jordan Bay, the most desirable location on Sebago Lake, and includes three outbuildings: a two-vehicle garage; a 2,265-square foot, four-bedroom, two-bath guesthouse, which was built in 1900, is also completely updated, and provides a monthly rental income of $1,400; and a delightful boathouse.

Perched on the shore, the seasonal-living boathouse is nicely done in traditional camp-fashion beadboard, and has a bedroom upstairs, with living room, kitchen and bath downstairs, plus a deck and a wonderful, enclosed sunporch that enjoys stunning views across the lake to the lofty hills on the far shore, and also west to the White Mountains.

From the slope above, the elegant stone patio and the home’s living/entertaining spaces afford much the same pleasures, plus the comforts of radiant heat wherever there is tile, as in the vaulted-ceiling sunroom and the nearby tub room, with its sunken Jacuzzi. The huge living room opens to the sunroom through two sets of French doors, and has a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace with honey-toned, bullseye-molding mantel, just one example of the gorgeous woodwork throughout the house, whose floors are primarily oak, or wide-plank maple.

The kitchen, occupying most of the home’s east wing, is a joy, with stainless Dacor appliances such as wine fridge and convection wall oven; serpentine stone (from South America) counters including desk space and island; a beadboard breakfast nook; maple cabinetry with dark-stained accent drawers, and handsome Craftsman columns setting off the dining room.

The master suite, and two bedrooms (note the wall of cool built-ins in one) that are served by a full bath, are in the other wing. Study/music room, large laundry/utility room, and mudroom/half-bath complete the level.

The home at 1114 Roosevelt Trail (U.S. Route 302) in Windham is listed for sale by Tom Noonan of RE/MAX Allied.
