A little over a million dollars can still buy you a heckuva lakefront home here in Maine. While it's rare that I can promise that you can "have it all", there is that occasional exception.
In the opinion of Mr. Lakefront, "having it all" means great plot, great location, great neighborhood, great house and great lake.
The lot has everything one could want. There is a nice sandy beach, great for kids and seniors alike. The east shore location is highly desirable for the afternoon sun and dazzling sunsets. The broad water views from the screened porch and deck look out onto the widest part of late. The lot is flat with old-growth pine and hemlock. Privacy is assured with 214 feet of frontage on 3.3 acres. The house is situated quite nicely - only 60 feet from the water. There's a lovely screened porch facing the lake along with a good-sized deck for entertaining.
At 2600 sq. ft., the size of the home might be considered modest by luxury standards, but because the home sits within 100 feet of the water, the homeowner was limited in the size of home he could build. That said, having three bedrooms and two and a half baths suits the needs and wants of most folks seeking a year-round vacation home.
The home, originally built in 1971, was totally remodeled and reconstructed in 2005. Great care was given in the selection of materials used and only those of the highest quality were utilized in the construction. A specific list is available upon request. A garage with guest apartment above is planned, but has not been built. However, the plans for the structure are available for inspection. A separate septic tank has already been installed for use by the garage/guest quarters structure.Last, but not least, there is the lake. And what a lake!! Thompson Lake is one of Maine's best lakes. It has great size, impressive depth, and superior water quality. Best of all, it's not busy. I've heard it described as being just like Long Lake - 50 years ago.This lovely home is listed for $1.1 million and is ready for your inspection.
