CUMBERLAND – Built in 1991 as an executive ranch, this home in a secluded location near the Fairgrounds was substantially expanded and renovated in 2005, and has been scrupulously maintained and updated since.

The result is a 3,400-square-foot home that lives and feels as fresh as new construction, and comes with the advantage of a professionally landscaped, gorgeously gardened, 3.3-acre lot ringed by mature trees.

A further bonus is the newer, 900-square-foot in-law (or rental) apartment above the triple-bay garage. As nicely appointed as the main home (to which it has access in addition to a private entrance with removable chair lift) this accessory dwelling unit includes a big bedroom with two double closets; a front-to-back living area that extends from dining space to sliding French doors that open to a private balcony with powered awning; a bright-and-white kitchen with laundry in an enclosure; and a full bath with both jet soaking tub, and shower.

The home provides one-level living, if desired, thanks to a first-floor master suite with full bath and a pair of double closets. In the same wing are two additional good-sized bedrooms (one would make a great office) and a full bath to serve them. Above is the new and spacious master suite, whose bath is especially elegant – marble tile, “sports”-style shower enclosure, and vessel sink.

Dining and living room are open-concept, at the front of the house; the latter shares a two-sided brick fireplace with the kitchen, a stunner that features hone-granite surfaces, stainless appliances, and very cool glass-tile backslashes.

The partially daylight basement of 1,776 square feet has walkup to the heated garage, and includes tons of workshop and storage space as well as a huge, carpeted family room for recreation and exercise. Systems include Buderus boiler (heat is five-zone); whole-house generator, and wall-mounted Art Cool units for AC.

The home at 125 Bruce Hill Road, Cumberland, is listed for sale at $519,000 by Kathleen F. Scott of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Cape Elizabeth. Annual taxes are $7,010.

Please note that an Open House will be held from 1:30-3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 13. For more information or to arrange a private viewing, please contact Kathleen at 799-5000 ext. 102, 838-7740, or at [email protected].
