STANDISH – Here is a two-level home whose combination of a convenient location, an affordable price, and an abundance of recent updates puts it solidly into the market’s “won’t last” category.

Perched at the end of a cul-de-sac in a secluded, woodsy, established neighborhood, the three-bedroom (one a master suite), two-bath, two-fireplace home is ideal for a family. Out back are a six-person hot tub, an inground pool, and a charming summer house with electricity.

The one-acre lot is both sunny (the home is south-facing) and well-screened; just across the stone wall is a trail that within a few feet connects to the ITS (Maine’s Interconnected Trail System, a boon to sledders). And the town’s new-next-year Memorial Beach, on Sebago Lake, is a short drive away.

Built in 1984, the house has a new roof, and its pristine-condition interior was pretty thoroughly made new five years ago. Birch floors gleam on the main level, and there’s oak flooring in the bedrooms. The kitchen features granite surfaces; the cool, angled island has an overhang for seating; stainless appliances include a French door refrigerator.

The full bath with tub is beautifully renovated. Full-view doors to the 12-foot-by-12-foot deck open near the dining area.

Nicely finished lower-level space, which is both walkout and primarily daylight, increases the home’s square footage to a total of 1,892. The two-section family room has a floor-to-ceiling, wood-burning brick fireplace, just like the one in the living room above. The laundry room has space for a small workshop, as does the garage.

The home at 7 Mast Pine Circle, Standish, is listed for sale at $265,000 by Bridget King and Jason Miller of the King + Miller Team of The Maine Real Estate Network. Annual taxes were just $2,223 in 2015.
