This exquisite turnkey residence combines traditional Maine summer cottage vernacular with modern architectural design, creating a one-of-a-kind, four-season home overlooking Eggemoggin Reach. Located on a private 3.4± acre site at the end of a long drive, the property includes over 285 feet of waterfront with outstanding views south and west down the Reach.
Originally conceived as a small summer cottage, the property was expanded in stages by the architect-owner. Today, the original central cottage includes, at the lower level, two bedrooms, a full bath and screened porch; upstairs, are the kitchen, dining area, office, and half bath. A screened, covered "grill porch" is directly adjacent to the kitchen.
The modern wing to the west includes an open living room upstairs with a dramatic wall of windows overlooking the Reach and soaring ceilings, along with a massive slate fireplace and chimney. Downstairs, the large master suite has a luxurious bath, indoor/outdoor shower, large walk-in closet, another private screened porch, and a large, custom hot-tub affording beautiful views over the lawn and shorefront.
The latest addition (on the northeast side) includes the state-of-the-art media center, recreation room, office with fireplace, and custom wine storage in the breezeway. A heated two-car garage is below.
Designed to maximize views and light, this home is also comfortable and practical. It is extremely well-built, energy efficient and aesthetically delightful, with attractive finishes of very high quality. The property also includes a charming, private one-bedroom, one-bath guest house.
The property is beautifully landscaped, with perennial beds, mature plantings and attractive ornamentals, and the 3.4± acres provide a private setting. The upper level living spaces are perfectly oriented to year-round sunset views over the island-dotted waters. The shorefront is tidal and accessible – includes a swimmable cove – all with beautiful views of Eggemoggin Reach.
