SANFORD – This stunning, totally custom executive English Tudor home took just over two years to build, from October 1982 to move-in in December 1984.

Actually, when you consider that its siting on the 1.86-acre lot was adjusted to maximize southern exposure, “create” would be a better word. And would also better recognize the all-star team of local professionals who crafted the property, from the architect, to the longtime painters, to the carpenters and the hardscapers with their artistry, to the makers of the newer deck and the gazebo, and even the installers of the inground pool – with waterfall.

Perfectionists, all; and as the owner remarked, “it’s doubtful that the workmanship could ever be reproduced in today’s market.”

Fortunately, it needn’t be. The 3,296-square-foot home in a fine neighborhood is now offered on the market for the first time, awaiting – probably not for long – a new owner who will revel in its quiet elegance and utilize its many options for entertaining. And perhaps enjoy kayaking or canoeing on little Curtis Lake, a five-minute walk away; access is limited to association members.

Highlights of the three-bedroom, 2.5-bath home are too numerous to list, but the sunroom’s two-story wall of windows, with balcony, must be mentioned. So must the coffered-ceilinged, parquet-floored living room’s elevated, wood-burning brick fireplace, which is flanked by a wall of gorgeous built-ins. And the combination staircase, rising from both the living room, and the dining room (note its two window bays with seats).

The master suite features marvelous built-ins, and full baths for him and for her. The kitchen’s counters and island-with-sink are Corian, and the stainless appliances are newer. The oven, like the fireplace, can readily be converted to gas. Amenities include central air, central vac, and a security system.

The home at 126 Westview Drive, Sanford, is listed at $399,000 by Chrysa Baker of Century 21 NS Group in Portland. Annual taxes are $8,905 (2018). For more information or to arrange a viewing, please contact Chrysa at 653-6220 or at [email protected]; and visit www.WestviewDrive.Info.
