NORTH YARMOUTH – “All the house you need, on one level,” is one way of looking at the stunning and immaculate home in the Carriage Hill neighborhood. And what a house.

In the north wing are three bedrooms, including an especially fine master suite whose bedroom has a windowed nook for desk/relaxing; whose walk-in closet is day-lighted by an octagonal window, presently framing a view of lilacs in spring glory; and whose elegant bath has radiant heat, as does the nearby full bath that serves the other bedrooms.

The greater part of the main level is devoted to an L-shaped expanse of gorgeously finished living space, almost 40 feet in length. At the living room end, built-in bookshelves flank a brick fireplace with tall, handsome, dentil-molding mantel, and a new gas insert. Past the doors to an elevated, screened sunroom, the long dining area is widened by a bay window.

The lovely kitchen is subtly set off by a change in flooring, from oak to new tiles, in a design that matches the angles of the Deer-Isle-granite island.

On the second level, there’s a huge, carpeted office (or bedroom, potentially) with built-in shelves running the length of one wall. At the far end of a long hall, walk-in attic space provides tons of easy-access storage, almost 500 square feet.

The attic could be converted into a media room – but bear in mind, there already is one. The daylight basement’s family room has a white wall ideal for projecting films on, along with a floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace, and walkout to the covered patio – note its massive flagstones.

With a full bath, a bonus room that’s kitchen-ready, and even a walk-in cedar closet, the lower level functions very nicely as a guest/in-law suite. The extensive workshop area is daylight, too.

Mention must also be made of the advantages of central air and whole-house generator, and of the sunny, 3.01-acre lot, an excellent growing environment (microclimate) that is expertly landscaped and professionally hardscaped. Out back, the property reaches far back into the woods, where there’s a little brook.

The home at 9 Carriage Hill, North Yarmouth, is listed for sale at $495,000 by Rachel Lorraine of Maine’s Real Estate Connection in Windham.
