WINDHAM – There are three levels of living at this splendid contemporary on a cul-de-sac in a quiet, woodsy neighborhood. But when you consider them collectively, there is really only one “level” – and that standard is lofty, like the views from here out to Mount Washington.

The single-owner, cedar-and-stone, custom home was built in 1986, but its pristine condition indicates that it is effectively new. Its features have a timeless quality. Off the foyer, in the center of the first floor, is a cool, skylit atrium that increases the home’s passive solar efficiency, and abundance of natural light. The vaulted-ceiling family room has a handsome, floor-to-ceiling stone hearth (hand-built by the seller) with an arched woodbox/mantel and a Yotul wood-burning stove (which could be converted to coal).

The first-floor master suite also has a full-height stone hearth, with gas insert; a gorgeous bath with both a shower enclosure and a luxurious jetted tub; and a dressing room with 24 feet of cedar-backed closets. The suite accesses a huge, private-entrance office whose extra space can accommodate home gym equipment. An in-home business would work very well.

With 11 rooms – including five bedrooms – and totaling 5,531 square feet, this is fine a family home as one could want. Two decks – one is a four-level deck overlooking the inground pool; the other opens off the sitting room – expand living areas. The daylight, walkout downstairs also has a stone fireplace, and is nearly finished to create a full apartment/guest suite.

In a separate sale, an additional 9.46 acres abutting these three acres, and extending down to River Road, is being offered; please inquire. A lawn tractor and other equipment may also be made available.

The home at 36 Timberhill Road, Windham, is listed for sale at $475,000 by Barbara Lewis of Maine’s Real Estate Connection, and is being shown by appointment.
