KENNEBUNKPORT – Nestled amidst 6.14 mostly wooded acres, here is a very cool custom contemporary home whose openness and floor-plan flexibility presents a new owner with several living-arrangement choices.

A creative new owner, particularly. The large, daylight, walkout workshop is a plus for a craftsperson, who will also appreciated the heated, two-bay garage and separate but attached single-bay garage. Here, too, both upstairs and down, are great studio options for an artist, yoga practitioner, etc.

The open-concept main level is bright and airy, and you realize how artfully designed the house is, to enjoy such excellent light in a woodsy setting.  A soaring cathedral ceiling, oversized windows, and a number of skylights contribute to this effect. The great room has charming window seats and a Jotul wood stove on a brick hearth, and flows into a lovely blue-and-gray kitchen whose Bosch, Jenn-Air and Fisher & Paykel appliances are a subtle, muted stainless. The counters and geometrically unique island are Corian.

Floors and trim are oak. A screened sun porch opens off the kitchen. Single-level living is provided by a big, back bedroom whose full bath connects through to the workshop. (Buyers may inquire about the well-outfitted shop’s equipment.)

Central vac and whole-house generator are here, too.

The oak spiral staircase that ascends to the second level is notably wide. And here one can truly arrange and furnish to suit. Septic allows for more bedrooms, so the office/bonus/media room could be enclosed,, and the skylit, south-wing, back-to-front studio could become a master suite, one with Bosch-applianced laundry, sink, and banquette seating in the opposite, front corner, and a private balcony. The upstairs bath accesses both prospective-bedroom area.

The secluded location offers the advantage of being away from the bustle of the renowned village waterfront and Dock Square, while still being very handy to its attractions and conveniences.

Please note that three acres of the property could be split off, and a second home built. Living in one house, and renting out the other, would be an attractive option.

The 1,694-square-foot home at 20 Tanglewood Lane, Kennebunkport, is listed for sale at $495,000 by Gail Arnold and Marissa Gagne of Kennebunk Beach Realty, and is being shown by appointment.
