TOPSHAM – Here in Mallett Woods is a sparkling new custom home that offers single-level living at its best.

Built in 2015, the contemporary ranch gives the option of two or three bedrooms. Off the wide central entry hall, behind double doors, is an oak-floored front room with a pair of closets, and connected via a pocket door to a full bath with oval sink and soaking tub. This third bedroom also makes a perfect office, study or television room.

The master suite and the second bedroom occupy the same, north side of the house, with the front, second bedroom accessing the above-mentioned bathroom, Jack-and-Jill style.

At the back of the home, the master bedroom, spacious at 15-feet-plus-by-15-feet-plus, enjoys great light thanks to southern exposure. The bath is huge, and has a walk-in closet with built-in shelving; twin oval sinks, a large shower enclosure with seat, and a private convenience behind a pocket door.

Interior wall colors are neutral, subtly varying from room to room. The main living area flows 30 feet back from the end of the entrance hall, (sharing its oak flooring) through the dining area and the living room  (note its gas fireplace in a handsome surround with dentil and bullseye molding) to full-view doors that open to an elevated deck, 10 feet deep by 12 feet wide.

To one side, the pretty kitchen features granite counters, ample cabinetry, and stainless-and-black appliances. Nearby are a half-bath with laundry enclosure, and access to the oversized, two-vehicle garage.

The full basement has excellent finishing potential; the space is high-ceilinged and partially daylight, with walkout to the trees-screened back yard of the 0.29-acre lot. Natural gas heat (there are two zones) is supplied by a wall-hung Bosch boiler. Water and sewer are public.

The location in the new Mallett Woods neighborhood is highly convenient, tucked in three turns off Topsham Fair Mall Road, and very close to Interstate 295 Exit 31 as well as all kinds of shopping and dining.

The 1,870-square-foot home at 52 Forest Glen Lane, Topsham, is listed for sale at $335,000 by Claire Joyce of The Maine Real Estate Network (South Portland office) and is being shown by appointment.
