FALMOUTH – “Rich in features” is the extremely abbreviated version of what this spacious, sunny, cedar-sided home has to offer.
The street is named after the venerable and renowned Muirfield golf course in Scotland, and this 1.11-acre property abuts the 17th green at Falmouth Country Club, combining that perk with lovely pastoral views, both front and back, far out across the rolling grass and meadows.
Built in 1991, and scrupulously maintained with updates including heat/cooling pumps and a new Buderus boiler, the 5,582-square-foot, Cape-Style home perfectly blends traditional New England character with relaxed, contemporary comforts. The paneled, deep-windowed dining room sits behind French doors; the living room, set off by pocket French doors, features a brick, marble-tiled wood-burning fireplace.
The very open, south-facing back of the home flows from a twin-double-closets mud room into a long, dine-in kitchen that has full-view doors out to the deck; cherry cabinetry; desk space; granite surfaces including a 9-foot island with cooktop, and stainless appliances. Next door, the family room is warmed by a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace, and has built-in bookcases.
The first-floor master suite is very much a retreat, occupying its own, (east) wing, and including an elevated, private deck, a walk-in closet with built-ins, a full bath with a jetted tub and a glass shower enclosure, and a bedroom with plenty of space for a sitting area and various furniture arrangements.
There’s a huge, finished bonus/media room, or studio, above the newly insulated, oversized, two-vehicle garage. Two second-floor walk-in attics could be finished. The daylight, walkout ground level is newly carpeted, and has a wood stove, a recreation/exercise area, and a complete guest suite with a built-in desk.
The home at 2 Muirfield Road, Falmouth, is listed for sale at $639,000 by Rose Greely of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage (Back Cove, Portland office). Taxes are $8,900.
