WINDSOR – Here is a single-owner, architect-designed, single-level home that is extraordinary:

For its lofty view over Three Mile Pond; for its potential appeal to book-lovers and collectors of objets d’art, who will have 550 linear feet of display shelving to work with; for interior touches such as the master bath’s six-person Jacuzzi, and the cool, sliding rice paper doors to the suite and on its closets; for the custom, 50-foot couch around the magnificent, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace; for the 1,800 square feet of wraparound, elevated decking, which is partially shaded by the pretty woods into which the home on 2.8 acres nestles …

There are three bedrooms, and two full baths; the custom kitchen has a vented Jenn Air countertop grill; floors are granite, or hardwood. All in all, there is far more than can be itemized here, but it is essential also to note that the home is extraordinarily efficient to heat, thanks largely to its 600 square feet of south-facing Thermoplane glass, and the array of Vellux vented ceiling windows set into the beautifully paneled redwood octagonal ceiling of the great room.

The home comes with a tremendous bonus: A two-story, 78-foot-by-32-foot garage/outbuilding that has a large office at one end of the downstairs, and seemingly endless walkup storage above. The versatile building is ideal for a contractor or woodworker looking to operate a home business, or for a car collector/restorer of antique autos.

The little organic orchard is a charming touch. There are pears – Anjou, Asian and rainbow (six varieties on a single tree); Macs, and sweet cherries. Nearby are quite delicious “choke” cherries.

The 2,340-square-foot home at 309 Legion Park Road, Windsor, is listed for sale at $269,900 by Lori Lombardo of Better Homes and Gardens The Masiello Group (Augusta office) and is being shown by appointment.
