CAPE ELIZABETH – If a condominium suits your lifestyle, but you prefer the feel of living in a house, this 1,845-square-foot, three-bedroom home might be the answer.
Here is a condo, and an association, of character. The Hobstone Condominiums sit on 44 wooded acres (with tennis courts) adjacent to town Land Trust trails, and are made up of five 12-unit enclaves. Each is like a little tucked-away neighborhood, and the just-reshingled buildings, while sharing a New England seaside cottage aesthetic, are all different.
As are the floor homes’ floor plans. This three-level unit, in Concord Place, begins with an interior-entry garage (there is a second, designated parking space outside) and ascends to a main floor that flows beautifully. Past the tiled mud room’s French door, the maple-floored hallway leads into a dine-in, updated kitchen complete with granite surfaces and a four-burner gas range.
There are built-ins alongside the dining space, and another French door opens to a very pleasant covered deck, with a grassy, patio-like area down the stairs. At the front of the home, the third bedroom, or office/den, has a vaulted ceiling and a full wall of built-ins. Past a powder room, the side hall leads into a spacious, back-to-front, carpeted living room, whose gas fireplace is framed by a handsome dentil-molding mantel, and whose ceiling is also vaulted. The rear of the room would also serve well as dining space.
Upstairs, the private master suite has a Palladian window in the bedroom; a short hall lined by closets leads into the full bath with tub. The second bedroom is served by an adjacent full bath (with laundry) and features not only a charming window seat, but also a raised platform for sleeping or reading.
The home at 36 Concord Place, Cape Elizabeth, is listed for sale at $289,000 by Joshua Lagasse of RE/MAX Realty One. Taxes were $4,260 in 2016. There is a monthly association fee of $513.
