SNUG HARBOR, SEBAGO LAKE, STANDISH – Here on the “quiet side” of Sebago Lake is a spacious year-round home with 100 feet of frontage; a private dock in a protected inlet; and a mooring in placid Snug Harbor, which can accommodate larger boats.

Both dock and mooring are steps away from this house in the Snug Harbor Association, a quiet enclave of two dozen homes on a private peninsula on Sebago’s western shore. From the beach, from the large deck and patio/walkway, from the back lawn, the views are splendid, across the water to Frye Island and Sebago’s eastern shoreline, and along a panorama of far-distant hills beyond.

The same views are captured from almost every room in the home, which was built on the .30-acre site of an older cottage, and then expanded to its present 2,192 square feet in 2004. The addition, in the south wing, houses the spacious, paneled master bedroom, which has a deep walk-in closet; a full bath; and a very cool, front-to-back, walk-up, carpeted loft/bedroom, with handsome beadboard paneling and a window facing the lake.

This room has a counterpart in the other wing: another walkup loft, with exposed brick, into which two twin beds fit comfortably.

The brick rises from an imposing, oversized central fireplace whose hearth is 10 feet wide, the heart of a living room with cathedral ceiling, exposed beams, and a full wall of built-in shelved and cabinets for books and entertainment gear. The fireplace is outfitted with a new Harman pellet stove, which combines with a wall-hung furnace in the south loft to provide extremely efficient heat.

The kitchen, which has a two-level bar and whose appliances include a gas range, and the adjacent dining room share the back side of the brick, where a built-in shelf for storage/display augments the dining room’s wall of classic cabinetry, some of it glass-fronted.

Down the hall are a tiled full bath with soaking tub; a good-sized bedroom now equipped with two bug bunk beds (interested buyers, please inquire about availability of furnishings); and pull-down storage above.

The home at 6 Hawkes Drive, Standish, is listed for sale at $959,900 by Mary Walker of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage (Cape Elizabeth office) and is being shown by appointment.
