POWNAL – This property’s pastoral setting is idyllic; down the long slope of front lawn, there’s 300 feet of frontage on a charming duck pond just large enough to canoe on.

The classic Colonial sits well back from the road, amid a beautifully landscaped lot just shy of three acres. Built in 1989 and much updated since, the home was expanded to 3,325 square feet with the addition of a magnificent conservatory of 600 square feet. Among its features are a cathedral ceiling with exposed beams; six skylights; barnboard walls, and bamboo flooring. Atrium doors open to a brick patio with ornamental plantings. Home and nature are at one here.

The main part of the three-bedroom, 2.5-bath house shares the conservatory’s brightness and openness – note how the spacious kitchen and the dining room with arched replace flow together – and has a flexible floor plan, from the back-to-front, Brazilian-cherry-floored living room with replace, to the “breezeway” room that makes a fine studio, office, family room or “green” room. Upstairs, the private, elegant master suite’s bath has been renovated, with ceramic tile, twin vessel sinks, and a jetted tub.

The home is also super-efficient, with multiple zones, and a wood-fired boiler as a secondary heat source. The location is an easy commute to the Maine Turnpike and Interstate 295, and very handy to Pineland Farm’s equestrian center, mountain biking and cross country ski trails and other amenities.

The home at 290 Fickett Road, Pownal, is listed at $535,000 by Michele Perejda of Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty in Portland. For more information or to arrange a viewing, contact Michele at 207-400-6227; 207-780-8900; or at [email protected].
