READFIELD – This gorgeous 2008 contemporary home was designed by architect Robert Hayford, with distinct Frank Lloyd Wright flavor, to be the perfect complement to its lovely woods-and-waterfront setting, which includes 133 feet on the western shore of Maranacook Lake.

Abundant natural light, soul-enriching lake views and sunsets, spatially “clean,” linear construction, extensive Western red cedar and Douglas fir, vaulted ceilings and towering thermal windows are among the hallmarks of the multi-level, 2,234-plus-1,321-square-foot home.

Down a few steps from the foyer, a three-season room offers a wonderful retreat for relaxation and contemplation alongside a floor-to-ceiling, dry stack granite woodburning fireplace.

Beneath tall cathedral pines, the gently sloping, secluded half-acre lot is a blend of professionally tended gardens, handsome hardscaping, and “natural” growth and stone outcroppings – a thoroughly eco-conscious environment that is also inhabited by a charming bunkhouse cottage, with carpeting, electricity, loft, and the sweet aroma of knotty pine.

The home at 96 Nobis Point, Readfield, is pending, after being listed at $699,000 by Jean Kirkpatrick of Coldwell Banker Rizzo Mattson Realtors in Augusta.
