OGUNQUIT – Imagine an elegant and spacious custom home, secluded amidst lush gardens and wonderful hardscaping that feature paved walkways and a little waterfall and pool crossed by a granite bridge.

The pretty, private, tree-ringed setting is an easy walk to the center of a town whose name means “beautiful place by the sea” – a town renowned for its beach, its shops and fine restaurants, its first-rate summer theater, for Perkins Cove and other attractions. In short, Ogunquit provides the best the coast of Maine has to offer.

Built in 2004, the Colonial has been so scrupulously maintained that it has a 2014-new Viessmann furnace, supplying six-zone heat. Systems include “every one known to man,” in the words of listing broker Don Wunder, who mentions central air and vac, whole-house generator, security, and music inside and out. The house is in pristine condition also thanks to its having been very lightly lived in, and cherished by, the seller, a summer resident. In fact, the aroma of the cathedral-ceilinged living room’s white-pine paneling still sweetens the air.

Roomy at 5,112 square feet on three levels, the Thane Pearson Design home feels all the more open because a wealth of built-ins, such as the three window seats with storage, decreases the need for furniture. Every practical detail has been thought out, from the pedal-operated prep sink in the gorgeous, gourmet’s kitchen, to the mechanism that lowers the foyer chandelier (note the mahogany compass inset in the oak floor beneath) for dusting.

Highlights are simply too many to list here, but include the first-floor master suite; the three-season sun room; the 850-square-foot lower-level suite, ideal for rental, for an au pair, or for in-laws/guests; and the two second-floor great rooms. One, very open, has the cool eyebrow window you will recognize from the facade; the other, above the garage, is suited to many recreational purposes.

The home at 33 Stoneybrook Drive, Ogunquit, is listed for sale at $1.125 million by Don Wunder of RE/MAX Realty One. Taxes are $6,910 (2017). For more information or to arrange a viewing, please contact Don at 252-1775, 363-2497, or at [email protected].
