CUMBERLAND – Brand-new to the market – listed for sale just yesterday, in fact – this classic, newer Colonial in the desirable Morrison’s Hill neighborhood is a fine home for a family, especially in a town whose schools ranks very near the top in Maine.

Built in 2013, the 1,664-square-foot house is oriented due east and enjoys wonderful sun, and sits on a generous 1.15-acre lot whose back yard includes an 80-foot-by-150-foot fenced (maintenance-free PVC picket) lawn, with a patio, a pergola and a little garden. Woodsy land to the rear provides nice screening and cannot be built on.

Inside, floors are oak or tile throughout. The open-concept main level flows beautifully, with dining room and living room flanking the foyer, while the eat-in kitchen – cherry cabinetry, granite counters whose bar has an overhang for dining, and black Maytag appliances including a five-burner gas range – extends across most of the back of the house. Sliding doors open out to the deck; a mudroom with a daylight half-bath/laundry completes the first floor.

Up the wide central stairs, the master suite has one wing to itself. The very large bedroom has two closets, one a walk-in; and a well-appointed full bath with twin oval sinks and an oversized shower enclosure with seat. Bedrooms two and three, front and back respectively, are good-sized, and are served by a full bath with tub.’

Efficient, direct-vent propane heat is two-zone (first floor and second).
The full basement has a high ceiling; a nice workshop with bench on the utilities/bulkhead side; and great potential for finishing (family/recreation room, etc.) on the other.

The home at 5 Buds Trail, Cumberland, is listed at $298,000 by Karen Jones of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage (Back Cove office). Annual taxes are $5,065 (2017-18).
