Welcome yourself home to this peaceful, private retreat on the banks of the Eastern River. This architect designed light-filled home is the perfect blend of tranquility and modern comfort. The three bedroom, 2 bath house is nestled on 2.5 acres at the end of a short road, bordered by the river on one side and behind by a state protected wildlife area. The inviting design draws you through a 3 season porch and spacious entryway into an open concept home: a dining area overlooking the river opposite the kitchen with custom cherry cabinets flows into the bright living room complete with small wood stove, views to all sides and deck access. A sun-drenched office with built-in shelving and a full bathroom complete the first floor. Upstairs includes a master bedroom with cathedral ceiling, walk-in closets and a full bathroom, as well as a laundry room, a study-nook and 2 additional light-filled bedrooms. Ample closets and built-in storage space as well as hardwood maple floors are found throughout. This well-maintained home is heated and cooled with energy efficient systems, including solar panels, heat pumps and an oil furnace as well as a full house back-up generator. The detached two-car garage, small garden shed and full basement afford extra storage and the potential for a workshop or studio. With two spacious decks and views from all rooms you can choose your mood with the serenity of a tidal river, watching the eagles, ducks and ice floes, or the sunny southern side facing colorful, organically maintained gardens which are a feast for the eye as well as a haven for pollinators, birds and small wildlife. In less than 30 minutes, you can be in Augusta or the midcoast area of Bath or Brunswick, with easy access also to Portland and points south. Don’t miss this opportunity to make this peaceful waterfront retreat your new home!
