WINDHAM – This bright and spacious four-bedroom home enjoys a sweet farmland location close to all North Windham conveniences, and also handy to intown Portland. And the property comes with a bonus: The lot of more than seven acres will be eligible to be subdivided in 2017.

As is, the setting is a pastoral delight, a haven for songbirds. On the north side, a little path leads down a gentle slope to the property’s 405 feet of frontage on the Pleasant River; and the west-facing house sits well back from the road behind a circular driveway, amid lush, broad lawns. There is wonderful potential for gardening here.

Built in 1973, the 2,724-square-foot shingle-and-brick home is perfect for a family, and also ideal for entertaining. From the big, sunken family room, which has a pellet stove on a brick hearth, there’s a full-view-door-walkout to a huge, two-level brick patio, bounded by stone walls.

The carpeted living room, which has a five-pane bay of casement windows, flows into a formal dining room; and there’s also ample dining space in the adjacent kitchen, which has white appliances, and oak cabinetry in abundance. A powder room off the family room completes the main level.

Upstairs, there are three good-sized bedrooms (two of them have double closets) towards the front of the house, and served by a full bath with soaking tub. The master bedroom, at 13 feet by 24 feet, has plenty of space for both sleeping and sitting areas; a pair of very deep double closets, both with built-ins; and an en suite full bath with soaking tub.

Down wide stairs, the basement has a pine-paneled, semi-finished room with a bar and shelving, presently being used as an exercise area. There’s plenty of storage space, too. Laundry and utilities are in a separate room. Please note that the direct-entry, two-vehicle garage is heated, and that the buyer will receive the additional benefit of a home warranty.

The nine-room home at 383 Falmouth Road, Windham is listed for sale at $325,000 by Cathy Manchester of the Manchester Team at Keller Williams Realty. Annual taxes are $4,203.
