WESTBROOK – This gorgeous custom Arts and Crafts cottage was built in 2010, to the very highest standards of design and construction.

Planning that this would be his family’s home for the next three decades, the owner spared no expense in providing every comfort and every modern amenity. For example, there is radiant heat on all three levels (basement included); a steel-piped fire sprinkler system; central air, and air-to-air heat exchanger; an ice and water-shield roof; custom, aluminum-clad, argon-filled windows; and a host of other such features.

But the family grew faster than expected, and so the home, perched on a knoll in the highly desirable Presumpscot Estates subdivision, is offered for sale, listed at $494,000 by Daniel Reali of Reali Realty on Newbury Street in Portland.

The next family to own the immaculate home, which was designed by architects Custom Concepts of Scarborough, will appreciate a sun-filled first floor with a big mudroom, an office behind French doors, dining room (or playroom) and a stunning cook’s kitchen with granite counters, cherry cabinetry and stainless appliances including double convection oven and 36-inch induction cooktop with rising vent. The living room and dining area share a two-sided gas fireplace, and a handsomely fenced deck enhances enjoyment of the pretty, .82-acre lot.

On the second floor, the master suite with full bath and walk-in closet is to the fore; two large, carpeted, double-closeted bedrooms served Jack-and-Jill-style by a full bath overlook the well-screened back yard. Off the top of the stairs are a daylight laundry room, and a multi-purpose balcony-loft space with closet. The space could become a fourth bedroom.

Adding more flexibility are a big bonus room, reached by stairs from the mud room, above the oversized, two-vehicle garage; and a potential family/exercise/media room in the full basement, which also has an area designated for a bathroom, tons of storage with shelves, and a workshop ell with garage access.

Association fees are $196 per month, but that amount includes not only water and sewer (which alone can be $100 monthly for a large family) and maintenance but also amenities such as a clubhouse with inground pool, basketball court and tennis court, trails, and a private dock on the association’s 600 feet of frontage on the Presumpscot River. The location is also very handy to both Sunset Ridge Golf Course and River Meadow Golf Club.

The home at 26 Stillwater Drive, No. 31, Westbrook, is being shown by appointment. For more information or to arrange a private viewing, please contact listing broker Daniel Reali of Reali Realty at 207-879-7653; 207-671-2752, or at [email protected].
