Single Family Residence, Raised Ranch,Ranch – Brunswick, ME



OPEN HOUSE FRIDAY 4/7/23 from 4:30-6:00 PM. This mid-century vintage home set in a birdwatcher’s paradise of 3 acres, features a tidal inlet on the property and is located across the street from beautiful Maquoit Bay. The westerly vista from the front living room window offers glimpses of the bay while the back and side yards (east and north) offer a nature lover’s paradise loaded with wildlife. The owner has catalogued over 100 species of birds in the past 10 years – see the slideshow in the video section of the listing for a sample! The entire living space is on the top floor, a true raised ranch (or ranch with a daylight basement on the street-facing side.) Enter the basement door and find a stairway with attached electric stairlift waiting to carry you (or your groceries!) up to the living level. Once on the main floor, you’ll enjoy single-level living, two full baths, renovated in recent years, one of which is attached to a front-to-back large bedroom, currently used as an office and nature-watching headquarters. (Note that this floor is gently sloped because it was originally built as a porch with a natural slope for drainage.) Convert this back to a primary bedroom suite or use it as a family room. This large room boasts one of the 2 newer heat pumps. Two additional bedrooms, at opposite ends of the house, offer plenty of options for sleeping. The fully applianced kitchen is vintage mid-century, complete with original green veined Formica countertop for a retro look. The great room offers space for living and dining, a Jotul woodstove insert in the original woodburning fireplace, and a heat pump for cooling and alternative heating. Hardwood floors are in great shape! The lower level has 2 unfinished spaces. One is currently an art studio and the other contains the garage space, the utility room, and open storage. There’s a second header in the front, ready for a second garage door if you desire to add one. Low heating costs with 3 types of heat!
