WINSLOW – Here in a secluded, semi-rural but convenient location is a great home for a family. Great, not only for its spaciousness, on three levels, and its floor plan (four bedrooms and 3.5 baths,) but also for a number of other advantages.

Foremost, perhaps, is versatility. There are 12 rooms, including several that are suited to different purposes. The formal living room makes a fine study, or music room. Upstairs, one front bedroom is now being used as a crafts/quilting room (the huge walk-in closet’s built-ins can store plenty of supplies) and the room receives light ideal for an artist’s studio. And on the finished, daylight, walkout lower level, there’s a bonus room perfect for media, workshop, etc.

The 1998, single-owner home is so well thought out, there is also an office area, with built-ins and a granite-topped desk, near the side-entrance mud room. Downstairs, which adds 1,500 square feet for a total of 5,624, a large space is designated for recreation/exercise equipment. Next door, the walkout family room has an accessory full bath and so can double as guest/overflow quarters.

The home “works” perfectly, from the Buderus boiler (there are five heating zones) to the no-maintenance siding and the oversized, direct-entry garage; and just down the driveway, a newer two vehicle garage, with walkup space above. The lot – 3.9 acres, with the home and an expanse of lawn ringed by mature trees, with trails out back – is a pleasure.

Interior highlights include a tile-and-birch-floored, open-concept main living area that extends 40 feet, from a granite-and-cherry kitchen to a sitting area with a gas fireplace, and accesses the deck. The master suite features a well-appointed bath with both shower enclosure and jetted tub, and a room-sized walk-through closet that connects to – a bonus room.

The home at 157 South Reynolds Road, Winslow, is very handy to all conveniences in town and in Waterville, and a quick commute to Augusta. It is listed at $389,000 by Pam Casavant of Century 21 Surette Real Estate in Waterville. Taxes are $6,170. Please contact Pam at 873-5634, 649-8234, or at [email protected].
