BRUNSWICK – Here in the very desirable Meadowbrook neighborhood, close to fine schools, the town center, walking trails, farmers markets, Bowdoin College and its playing fields, and countless Midcoast Maine attractions, is a 2,758-square-foot, 10-room home that’s ideal for a family (a multi-generational one, perhaps); or for anyone seeking plenty of space with floor-plan flexibility.

Many 2017 updates, including a new roof and gutters, all-new carpets, and fresh paint inside and out, helped the Colonial go under contract.

Off a mudroom with laundry and a full bath, the main living area – family room with floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace, dining area, and a bright kitchen with island cooktop – is open-concept. Full-view doors open to the long deck. The center, front entry is slate-tiled, with extra illumination from sidelights (the home is south-facing).

The chair-railed dining room features classic twin corner built-in china cabinets, and the carpeted, front-to-back living room has its own brick fireplace

There are five bedrooms upstairs, among them a nicely private master suite whose daylight dressing room has built-ins. At least two bedrooms, particularly the one that’s barn-board-paneled, would make fine offices. All closets are capacious, and the walk-in cedar closet off the hall is a great bonus.

The partially daylight lower level has good ceiling height and offers abundant workshop, storage, and finishing-potential space. The wood stove on a brick hearth is ready to be hooked up. Natural gas heat is four-zone, courtesy of a new, Bosch wall-hung boiler.

The home is set well back from the quiet street on a 0.88 acre lot whose great big back yard has a fire pit and a plus-size garden shed, and is beautifully screened.

The home at 20 Hemlock Road, Brunswick, is listed at $389,900 by Rita Armstrong and Dave and Liz Fleury of RE/MAX Heritage in Yarmouth. Annual taxes are $6,512 (2017-18).
