WINDHAM – The lakeside Windemere on Sebago neighborhood is undoubtedly one of southern Maine’s most desirable locations, thanks in part to its splendid amenities. Among them are tennis courts, a marina, and a private, 700-foot sandy beach.

Proximity to all conveniences (five minutes away in North Windham) is another virtue. But perhaps most of all, Windemere is renowned for the superb quality of its few dozen residences.

This exquisite home is a perfect example. Totaling almost 5,000 square feet of immaculate living space when you include the delightful lower-level rooms, the house still has room to expand: The roughed-in bonus room above the garage would make a perfect family room or additional master suite.

Much of the year, living space extends outdoors. The sweetly private, beautifully landscaped and hardscaped 1.77-acre lot has a “backyard oasis” with a large elevated deck that is ideal for relaxing, grilling and entertaining.

One of several dining-options spots, the deck is accessed via French doors from a cook’s kitchen with stainless appliances including French door refrigerator, double wall oven and gas range; a walk-in pantry, cherry cabinetry, Corian surfaces, and cool glass-tile backsplashes.

The kitchen is the heart of an open-concept main level that is warm with an abundance of wood and flows very naturally through connected living and dining rooms (the distinctive architectural columns are poplar) and includes an office/study with built-ins.

Upstairs, the master suite occupies the south wing and has an especially gorgeous bath, with a jetted tub, and an oversized, glass shower enclosure with granite accents. Large second and third bedrooms are served by a full bath.

Among the partially daylight lower level’s features are workout room, and a huge, recreation/man-room area with a wet bar and a viewing room for big-screen entertainment.

The home at 38 Woldbrook Drive, Windham, is listed for sale at $529,000 by Payson Swan of Swan Real Estate in Portland. Annual taxes were $6,780 in 2015; the monthly association fee, $85.
