FREEPORT – Here on a country road midway between the Village and coastal Wolf Neck Woods State Park is a classic Maine farmhouse that was completely renovated in 2005, and the result is about the happiest marriage of traditional character and high-efficiency, modern-comforts lifestyle that one could hope to find.

Touches like new white picket fence, the Stanley Waterford cast-iron cookstove (made in Ireland) in the kitchen’s dining nook, and the soapstone counters that beautifully complement the stainless appliances while alluding to the home’s 19th-century origin, embody the blend of vintage and contemporary.

So does the very cool barn, which is heated on both stories. Downstairs, in addition to garage/abundant storage (and a roost for chickens, if you like) is a nicely finished gallery space, plus a paneled office. The full upstairs is a wonderful, skylit studio space of more than 800 square feet, perfect for an artist or musician, and suited to any and all bonus-room roles.

From the sunken, tiled mudroom, an interior “barn” door introduces you to a cherry-floored main level that has radiant heat throughout. The living room – bright and fresh, as are all 10 rooms and three full baths – has a wood-burning brick fireplace, and a balcony overlooking the boxwood-framed patio and other hardscaping, and flows into dining room and kitchen. At the front of the house is a parlor that could become a fourth bedroom.

Upstairs, where floors are wide-pine and painted, the master suite – spacious bedroom with built-ins, daylight walk-in closet, and elegant bath with jetted tub – is tucked privately towards the back. Good-sized bedrooms two and three are served by a full bath, and there’s a daylight laundry room, too.

The 3,882-square-foot home on 3.23 acres at 39 Pleasant Hill Road, Freeport, is listed at $699,000 by Dava Davin of Portside Real Estate Group in Falmouth. Annual taxes are $8,037 (2016). Please note that an Open House will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 15.
