MONMOUTH – Originally a modest (but still waterfront) Cape, this handsome year-round home was transformed a dozen years ago into a 3,420-square foot Colonial – one with 225 feet of frontage, and a dock, on quiet Jug Stream.

From this area, whose fine bass fishery attracts competitors in local tournaments held during the summer, it is a very quick boat ride to Cobbossee Lake, which at 5,543 acres is one of Central Maine’s largest bodies of water, and one of the most desirable to live on.

This south-facing home, tucked in on a beautifully landscaped and hardscaped 2.54-acre lot, makes the pleasure of waterfront living all the more rewarding. Everything is custom, from the kitchen’s birch cabinets, to the oversized windows that ensure generous natural light and the spacious, L-shaped master suite.

Floors are hardwood throughout. The four full baths include one on the first level, and another on the daylight, walkout-to-a-covered-patio lower level, whose huge finished space has a wet bar and is suited to a variety of recreational uses, or could become guest quarters.

The first floor is versatile, too. There are two corner offices. One, facing the water, could be combined with the living room to enlarge the open-concept space; the other could become the fourth bedroom. Yes, single-level living is an option.

Above the heated, oversized (36 feet long) garage with workshop is a wonderful, roughed-in bonus room, with access via a back stairway, ideal for finishing as a studio, etc. More storage is unlikely to be needed here, because the home has tons of closets.

The home at 98 Frost Drive, Monmouth, is listed for sale at $430,000 by Lori Lombardo of Better Homes & Gardens The Masiello Group (Augusta office). For more information or to arrange a private viewing, please contact Lori at 623-4182, 500-0297, or at [email protected].
