WATERBORO – Any discussion of this lovely, shingled cottage-style home must begin with a mention of its fully equipped movie theater. The room of almost 600 square feet was created by the seller, who designs top-end sound systems for a worldwide clientele. Among this theater’s fixtures are a 15-foot screen, a projector, and auditorium seating, in an environment engineered to produce (and to contain) the finest of sound.

Other cool amenities here include a recording closet, off the bonus room/bedroom above the oversized, three-vehicle garage; and an inground Gunite pool that is super-low maintenance thanks to a computer-operated vacuum. But there’s far more to the house than its “extras.”

An easy, 45-minute commute to Portland, the one-owner, 2004 home nestles in a very private, woods-ringed setting, its 2.67 acre lot gorgeously landscaped and hardscaped. Southerly orientation and large windows – and note the foyer’s transom and wide sidelights – help flood the rooms with light. Ceiling heights are 9 feet downstairs and 12 feet up, rising to 18 feet in the living room’s cathedral ceiling.

Single-level living is another advantage. The master suite has a sumptuous bath (seven shower heads in the walk-in enclosure) and a charming library nook with built-ins and a gas fireplace. There is a lower-level in-law suite, too.

The cook’s kitchen is all one would expect, and possibility more, with high-end, stainless appliances (e.g. Viking Professional gas cooktop and KitchenAid double wall oven/microwave) and  Corian surfaces, with a two-level island.

Many furnishings, from the bonus room’s pool table to the lawn tractor, will convey, or are negotiable. Please inquire.
