GRAY – Steps across the quiet road from the waters of Crystal Lake, to which it has a right of way and of which it enjoys sweet views year-round, this new ranch represents a great opportunity to enjoy Maine lakefront living at a very affordable price.

With the asking price of $215,900 come the advantages of 30 feet of shared sandy beach; a mooring, and dock rights for kayak, canoe or other watercraft.

And with that friendly price comes a brand-new home on a .19-acre lot looking directly to the lake. The house is economical in scale at 936 square feet of living space, but that total is expanded during fine weather by a large, wraparound deck with privacy fence at one end.

Of course, that size combined with built-in-2015 pristine condition ensures economical (propane heat,) low-to-no-maintenance living, and on a single level – one that is very nicely finished. The L-shaped, hardwood-floor main living area’s kitchen features stainless appliances by GE and Frigidaire; Corian countertops, and hickory cabinetry. The space – 26 feet back-to-front, and 20 feet across the front – allows for flexible furniture arrangements.

Down the hall are a tiled, full bath with soaking tub and oval sink; and good-sized bedrooms back and front, each with lots of deep closet space.

The full basement provides plenty of room for storage and has walkup stairs to the elevated deck.

Fishing enthusiasts will be very happy here. Crystal Lake, one mile long and measuring 189 acres with a maximum depth of 59 feet, is noted for its trout and bass fishery, and annually hosts an ice fishing derby with both All Ages and Kids divisions.

The home at 53 Mayberry Road, Gray, is listed for sale by Victoria Hartig of Portside Real Estate Group in Falmouth.
