SCARBOROUGH – An easy walk to Higgins Beach, this gorgeous and immaculate New England-style home graces the site where the original Len Libby candy shop operated from 1926 into the late 1990s. The location is stunning as well as private. The property’s 1.91 acres are waterfront, bordering a lovely maze of marshes that are part of a Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge.

From the home’s three levels of windows, from the deck and the picket-fenced back yard and even from the charming tree house, there are unspoiled, pastoral and panoramic views far across the marshland and to the slopes of Ram Island Farm. These views are ever-changing, from the placid beauty of a midsummer day to the dramatic high tides when whitecaps will appear, and from sunrises to magnificent sunsets.

The one-owner builder’s home combines traditional Cape architecture with a touch of rusticity (the barnboard of the four-bay garage) and the finest of finishes throughout an interior that totals just over 6,000 square feet, including a daylight, multi-walkout lower level whose rooms are suited to a variety of roles – office, exercise, media, recreation and more.

The main level flows beautifully, with water views ever-present. The family room with gas fireplace (one of three in the home) leads into a spacious, bright, dine-in kitchen, with high-end white appliances, Corian counters including island, and subtly pickled birch cabinetry. French doors open into an elegant, front-to-back living room/dining room.

Down the hall is the first-floor master suite – huge bedroom, deep walk-in closet, and sumptuous bath with jetted tub and a Body Spa shower enclosure with turbo jets and waterfall.

There are two upstairs areas. In the main house are two large bedrooms, served by a full bath. Above the garage is a versatile, private-entrance bedroom/bonus room.

The home at 95 Spurwink Road, Scarborough, is listed for sale at $998,000 by the Scott & Sunny Townsend Team, Keller Williams Realty Maine Luxury Division. For more information or to arrange a viewing, please contact the team at 553-1387 or at [email protected].
