WINDHAM – Spacious, with a total of 5,406 square feet of living space; versatile, thanks to its 13 rooms including anywhere from four to seven bedrooms; and beautifully finished throughout to please the most discriminating buyer, here is a splendid, estate-quality home in a private setting in the heart of the Lakes Region.

The property is also a ready-made family compound: Above the garage (which can accommodate as many as four vehicles) is a two-bedroom, private-entrance apartment. There are also expansion possibilities, because adjacent to the home, which sits on a level, nicely landscaped and well-screened lot of 1.07 acres, is an additional and available building lot of 1.11 acres.

The home’s asking price of $695,000, which has been significantly reduced from $925,000, is a further advantage. Please inquire about terms of the additional lot.

Built in 2008, the home offers single-level living, with a master bedroom suite (walk-in closet, and full bath with tub) in its east wing. Among the main level’s highlights is the huge great room, where a fireplace built by a master stone cutter and made of Maine granite, soars from floor to cathedral ceiling, and is flanked by built-in bookcases. The fireplace is wood-burning, but could easily be converted to propane.

Almost all interior woodwork, including floors, is oak. The kitchen is a stunner, with surfaces, including island, of Deer Isle granite, and cool extras such as four-burner gas range, pot-filler faucet, and a Dutch-doored, daylight pantry with double wall ovens and granite counter tops.

Speaking of stunning, the lower level has its own contender for “favorite room in the house”: a library/office, or man/cave media room with beautiful stonework, and tons of cherry built-ins, including bookcases that swing open to reveal a hidden bar on one side, and a secret exit/entrance in the opposite wall.

Amenities include radiant heat, security system, air exchanger, central air conditioning, whole-house-generator, built-in music system, and an in-ground sprinkler system. Custom hardscaping includes a 115-foot stone wall with pillars.

The location in the Many Oaks Road Association (annual fee, $100) is as convenient as it is secluded. The home is just two miles from U.S. Route 115; a stone’s throw from the North Windham shopping district; minutes to beaches and boating; and is very handy to all the Lakes Region’s waterways and other year-round recreational attractions.

The home is listed by Sue Plourde of The Maine Real Estate Network (South Portland office).
