CAPE ELIZABETH – What do you get the home that has everything? A garage, perhaps, in this case. There is plenty of space to add one on the 0.43-acre lot. Other than that, well …

It’s a property in the hugely desirable, family-friendly Oakhurst community, near Fort Williams, Portland Head Light, and the Shore Road path. Sandy, neighborhood, private Casino Beach is a short walk away. Cape Elizabeth is renowned for its scenic beauty and for its top-ranked schools.

And, intown Portland is just 10 minutes away from this classic, 1940 Colonial. The house retains its original, traditional character, and has been thoroughly updated in recent months to be totally fresh and move-in ready. Oak floors are in great condition, and the interior paint job included prepping by scraping every door.

The bright new kitchen features stainless appliances, and opens to a dining room with chair rails and a deep shelf/seat in its window bay; the back-to-front living room has a brick, wood-burning fireplace, and an enclosed three-season porch with steps descending to the park-like back yard.

The three-bedroom upstairs has generous closets, and two full baths – one in the master suite, one of whose two large closets has steps up to attic storage.

Finished lower-level space, in the form of a tiled, daylight family/recreation room with a brick fireplace, brings the home to a total of 1,650 square feet. The large laundry/mud room is on the same level; one could fit a half-bath here, too.

That is by no means “everything” that 15 Ivie Road, Cape Elizabeth, offers. To learn more, please contact Jennifer DeSena of Ocean House Real Estate, who has listed the home at $479,900. (Annual taxes are $5,324 for 2017-18; there is a monthly association fee of $3. No, that is not a typo).
