Location: Cumberland Foreside, Maine
Bright, airy, and possibly the quintessential Maine country retreat, this 1820-built home occupies a beautifully landscaped, 1.86-acre site in Cumberland Foreside. Carefully maintained and updated with sympathetic renovations, the L-shaped colonial boasts charming details like molding, built-ins, paneling, millwork, and more to create a cozy, contemporary home.
Four bedrooms, four baths, multiple common rooms including a den, family room, formal living and dining, a farmhouse kitchen, plus an office unfold over nearly 5,000 square feet of space, with dozens of windows allowing natural sunlight to pour in. Worth noting are the spacious eat-in chef’s kitchen and the sunroom with stone fireplace.
The lush outdoors offers even more opportunities for relaxation and entertaining, like the large back porch, swimming pool, outdoor shower, stone patio and fireplace, and immaculate lawns. Located at 240 Foreside Road, it’s offered at $1.15 million. Have a look.
