SACO – Space, in the best domestic sense of the word, is the key to this stellar property in a small, secluded neighborhood off Burnham Road. Sitting on 4.54 mostly cleared acres, with woods out back, the home measure 3,444 square feet, yet still offers expansion possibilities. So it’s ideal for a growing family and/or a blended one – and also for a multi-generational family, because one wing is devoted to a two-bedroom in-law/guest suite apartment.

No surprise, behind its farmer’s porch and off the well-appointed mudroom/side hall with powder room, the primary home’s main level is agreeably spacious and classically Colonial. Hardwood flooring is Brazilian cherry. The front-to-back living room with pellet stove accesses the L-shaped deck, and flows into the kitchen, which has white appliances and very pretty maple cabinetry. The dining room accommodates both a table and an upright piano quite comfortably.

The single-level in-law apartment is bright and open-plan, extending from kitchen through dining area into the living room. French sliders open to the deck. The two good-sized bedrooms are served by a full bath, Jack-and-Jill style.

The second level offers floor-plan flexibility as well as several bedrooms. The master suite is in the east wind, and comes with a big walk-in closet and a very nice bath. Down the hall, on either side, “children’s” bedrooms also have walk-ins, with built-ins, and a full bath to share. Farther along, a hallway introduces an office that connects to a carpeted bonus room, approximately 16 feet wide by 20 feet long – a potential additional, or alternative, master, with its own staircase down to the mudroom. And above the in-law apartment, there’s an insulated, daylight, walk-in attic, approximately 18 feet by 40 feet. What a studio or recreation room it could become. Dormers would be a cool enhancement.

The full basement provides endless storage/workshop areas, and if anyone should “need” more space to finish, here it is. Heat (two oil tanks) is multiple zone. The sizable garden shed is another plus. And Saco – for its excellent schools, vibrant downtown, and recreational opportunities including great beaches – offers families superb quality-of-life.

The home at 10 Stonewall Lane, Saco is listed for sale at $475,000 by Jason Miller and Bridget King of The Maine Real Estate Network.
