STANDISH – It’s a good thing for a lakeside home to have a right-of-way. It’s an even better thing for the home to have four rights-of-way (two of them steps away across the street), including 40 feet of shared waterfront and a mooring, as this year-round property does, here in the very desirable and convenient Whites Bridge/Jordan Bay area of Sebago Lake.

There are fine water views, too, and sunsets, thanks to northwesterly orientation, that can be enjoyed from the refinished front deck, which is 12 feet deep and excellent for entertaining, relaxing, and dining.

Inside, the home has been beautifully renovated within the last year. All windows are new. The paneling is particularly cool. Some is lightly pickled, some is whitewashed, some is natural, some darker-stained. Some is vertical; some horizontal; and some, on the staircase, diagonal. All is in harmony.

On the upper, main level, the kitchen is outfitted with granite surfaces, including a desk, and subtly Mission-style oak cabinetry, some glass-fronted. French doors open to the side porch. Across the bar in the spacious living room, full-view doors access the deck.

The master bedroom, which has a double closet and air conditioning, is at the back, and served by a large bathroom with lots of built-ins and an oversized shower enclosure with seats.

The second bedroom, also with double closet, is on the bright, carpeted, walkout lower level, as are the “mud” room with cubbies; utility/workshop/storage room; and a half-bath.

The 0.22-acre lot is a plus, with its lawns and terracing; gardens (the various plantings include lilac, holly, euonymous, vinca and more); and handsome stone work. At 12 feet wide by 15 feet deep, the garden shed is garage-sized (and has a door like one) and is topped by a cupola.

The home at 100 Whites Point Road, Standish, is listed for sale at $279,900 by Julie Chandler of PoGo Realty in Gorham, and is being shown by appointment. Annual taxes are $2,743.
