FREEPORT – Houses & Barns By John Libby has long been renowned as one of Maine’s finest builders. Here is a Libby home that is special even by the company’s high standards.
Timber-framed, masterfully crafted, and super-efficient (there are six heating zones, with radiant heat on three levels) the 2013 house is also ADA-compliant throughout its main level, conferring great lifestyle benefits with features that are wholly unobtrusive. Single-level living is one option; the home would also be ideal for a client and caretaker, or an aging parent with an adult child.
Rather than facing the street, the front door and porch, and patio, look out into the woods of the deep, 2.27-acre lot. Enter the home, and the kitchen – whose white appliances include a gas range, and whose open, weathered-wood cabinetry combines rusticity and Euro flavor – is to your right, living room to the left.
The main-level, easy-access master suite is beautifully tiled, too. The bedroom is spacious and nicely appointed, and the bath even more impressive. The shower enclosure is a room unto itself, at a good 9 feet long by 6 feet wide, and has a window. The oval-sink vanity is honed granite, as are the kitchen surfaces.
The staircase, and the second floor, are a lovely walnut. Here are a large bedroom with a cathedral ceiling; a full bath with tub and private convenience; and a 13-foot-by-6-foot daylight closet that’s like a little walk-in attic (young children will want to sleep in it).
The L-shaped lower level is partially daylight, and invites finishing to add a family room, media or exercise room, etc.
The 1,854-square-foot (including 650 feet below grade) home at 7A True St., Freeport, is listed for sale at $369,000 by Dave Sawyer of RE/MAX Heritage in Yarmouth.
