The post-modern, shingle-style 4100 square foot house was beautifully and thoroughly
expanded in 2000. The house was completely rethought by Joseph Waltman, who I
consider the Robert A. Stern of the Maine coast. The many architectural details
include: intricate wainscotting, raised panels, crown moldings, French doors,
transoms, oak wood floors throughout, and custom cherry cabinetry.
The house is within 50 feet of the shoreline on all three sides, and has been sited
so that every room has direct water views! The interior has been carefully furnished
with personally chosen antiques, including oriental rugs, and original Maine art.
The custom kitchen has cherry cabinets and ceramic tile floors. It is fully equipped
with a Viking professional six-burner cooktop, Thermador double ovens with
microwave, two Kitchen Aid dishwashers, Cuisinart, mixer, and an ice maker in the
refrigerator. The house has a reading library, and is furnished with two telephone
lines, fax machine, laser printer and photocopier; Maytag-Neptune washer and dryer;
deck furniture, gas B-B-Q, satellite TV, and a computer.
A formal entrance way provides access to a 28′ by 16′ Living Room facing the water,
with direct access to the wraparound deck through three sets of French doors and a
staircase to the back gardens and deepwater channel. The Living Room also has a wood
burning fireplace. Off the Living Room, through the French doors, is a 16′ by 14′
formal Dining Room with seven windows, also directly facing the water. Along the
front of the first floor is the 28′ by 14′ Family Room, and to the West the 18′ by
16′ custom kitchen described above with its adjoining laundry room and full bath,
again all facing the water. A foyer/mud room provides access to a two-car garage.
Off the Living Room to the East and South is a 20′ by 16′ Master Bedroom with full
bath. The Family Room and the Master Bedroom both have access to an 83′ by 11′ deck
which runs along the south and west sides of the house. Directly behind the Living
Room is a large screened porch for waterfront dining and boat watching. 50″ flat
plasma Satellite TV, & 2-car garage. Wireless Broadband Internet.
Upstairs there are three large bedrooms and two guest baths. One of the bedrooms has
an adjoining sitting room, which can be used as a fifth bedroom.
The property also has a dock for tieing up your boat or swimming.
