AUGUSTA – Set well back from the road behind a long driveway culminating in an oval, on 4.1 private acres with gardens and lots of handsome, natural landscaping, here is a chalet-style log home that’s bright, airy, and spacious, at 2,346 square feet.

And, the property includes a great bonus, a 42-foot by 35-foot RV garage with a 16-foot door and a workshop with a bench, and a long, walkup storage platform. Of course, the building is also a home for boats, multiple vehicles such as collectors’ cars, and lawn equipment, and its workshop could be significantly expanded.

Like the garage, the house is metal-roofed. Unlike the garage, the upper living spaces are nicely elevated, so that you feel at treetop level (especially on the deep, wraparound deck). The westerly views are particularly fine.

Past the slate-floored entry/“mud” room, the radiant-heat, main level is open-concept and very warm-feeling thanks to its wealth of wood, including paneling and exposed beams. The kitchen features high-end stainless-and-black appliances, and honey-toned maple cabinetry, and is open to the great room, with its soaring cathedral ceiling and imposing stone fireplace with built-in wood stove.

There’s a good-sized first-floor bedroom, too, complete with full bath.

Upstairs is all master suite, if you please. The open loft area makes an ideal office/sitting room. Double doors open into a big master bedroom with a walk-in closet and a generously sized bath with a jetted tub.

The lower level is walkout, and primarily daylight in its versatile, two-section recreation/exercise room. There’s a bedroom with closet, too. The large utility room provides plenty of storage.
