Rarely can one find a lakefront property for sale that fits so many criteria - 150 feet of frontage on a high quality body of water; fantastic, westerly views of the water and surrounding hills; privacy without remoteness; and sunsets every day - all in a year round home that features quality craftsmanship throughout.
When turning off Spiller Hill Road in Raymond, Maine (just up Rte. 302 from Portland, Maine) and heading toward 115 Spring Valley Road where this great property is located, you feel the real world falling away behind you as the road wends its way to our destination. There are several upscale homes along this short, private stretch of country road, and you sense that, if you lived here, you would feel both comfortable and in good company.
About a mile in you arrive at the house, sitting near the road alongside its circular driveway. One is first struck by its overall design - its inviting entryway, the classic pitched roof with gable end on the main house, shed dormer on the second floor, all of it shingle sided and left unstained to age gracefully in the vagaries of Maine's delightfully diverse weather. On the back side of the house, a generous deck provides panoramic views al fresco - blue skies above, green trees below, distant hills, a jewel of water - and the scent of pine and hemlock as you feel a light breeze against your face. You soon realize the house is perched on the side of a hill, a moderately sloping terrain that runs away from the house, affording these expansive views. A closer look tells you the terrain moderates as it approaches the waterfront providing a wonderful lakeside area to swim, boat, picnic and recreate. This impression is borne out as you make your way down a winding path to the water's edge and look out onto the flat blue vista that is Raymond Pond.
The interior of the house is all charm and superior construction. The custom kitchen is ample and inviting with natural wood, custom cabinetry, and plenty of counter space. Natural light streams in from oversized, double hung windows on two sides giving the whole kitchen area a warm and pleasing glow.
The living room is a big, open space dominated by floor to ceiling glass, a cathedral ceiling, and a magnificent fieldstone fireplace. The effect of all the glass is to bring the natural world into the living area - bringing the "without, within", if you will. Instead of feeling dwarfed by the ceiling height, size of the windows, and weight and substance of the fireplace, so much of the outside is brought into the room that it all feels of a piece. At once, you can sense the grandeur of being "Master or Mistress of your Universe", and humble in awe of the beauty around you that Nature provides.
The rest of the house is a delightful, beautiful, and very livable tour de force. There's an office space in the upstairs landing, a wonderful second floor master bedroom with its own deck and dormer, a second bedroom upstairs, another downstairs, two and a half baths, and even more room in the lower level.
The layout is efficient, yet imaginative. There is no wasted space here and the interior has a larger feel to it than it actually is. Just to wander around this house is a pleasure to the eye, as there is so much of interest to see inside, yet the outside is visually ever present.
If you're in the market for an exceptional lakefront property, your timing couldn't be better. This property had originally listed at well over $500,000 two years ago. Last year it was reduced to just under that number, and now, today, it's been reduced again to a very affordable $439,900. Who knew that beauty could also be a value play!
