FALMOUTH – Wonderfully spacious at 3,643 square feet, this immaculate contemporary Cape’s design perfectly illustrates how adroitly so much finely finished living space can be deployed.

Single-level living is provided thanks to a gorgeous master suite with a large, bright bedroom; a walk-through closet with a wall of custom built-ins; and a sumptuous bath with marble (counters and tile) and both jetted tub, and oversized, glass shower enclosure.

More, a second main-level bedroom (or office/library, in its present use) is served by its own bath. On the second floor, above the double-bay garage, is another suite, very private, and ideal for guests. To the rear, the fourth bedroom also has its en suite bath.

Also upstairs are a bonus room/play room, and extensive walk-in-attic space that presents many possibilities for finishing.

The main level is stunning throughout. The tiled kitchen, which flows open-concept into a dining and sitting area that has an elevated, stone-hearth gas fireplace in one corner, features top-end, stainless appliances including a Viking Professional gas range and hood.

Backsplashes are tile, surfaces are granite, and cabinets are custom, as is the distinctive island. There’s a walk-in pantry, and a wine station (like a butler’s pantry) with fridge. Down the hall are a half-bath and a daylight laundry with fold-down ironing board.

A formal dining room (or family room) and the living room, which has a gas fireplace in a lovely, tile surround, open to each other across the center hall, which is paneled, and set off by architectural columns.

The full basement is huge (small children could ride their bikes some distance around its open space) and offers excellent finishing potential.

Public water and sewer (not always to be expected in Falmouth) are here. The location’s advantages include proximity to excellent schools, to shopping and more at West Falmouth Crossing, and to Maine Turnpike Exit 53. A stone’s throw away is a 110-acre Falmouth Land Trust preserve, which includes a two-mile trail.

Indeed, this property’s well-landscaped, 2.77-acre lot includes a woodsy 130 feet of frontage on the East Branch of the Piscataqua River.

The home at 296 Falmouth Road, Falmouth, is listed for sale at $679,000 by Collette Conley of RE/MAX Shoreline in Portland, and is being shown by appointment.
