Designed by architect Steven Blatt, and built by Wright Ryan, this exquisite 1996 contemporary styled home is nestled inside a private, flourishing 6-acre grove in Cape Elizabeth's Stonegate neighborhood. Working with Blatt's team, the sellers envisioned a house design that would embrace the natural environment. The result is a masterfully crafted union between dwelling & land. The home's connection with nature is most prominently featured in the Great Room where soaring lantern-shaped windows create a year-round observatory beneath a 20' ceiling w/ curved upper wall. The floor-to-ceiling stone hearth (w/ gas insert) is a functional work of art in this primary gathering space. Separated by subtle steps & gorgeous pocket doors, the den offers a cozy TV/reading rm. Also connected to the Great Rm is a formal DR w/ built-in niches. The kitchen's curved, vaulted ceiling creates an airy, sophisticated space for cooking, dining & entertaining, and the adjoining butler's alcove will keep food warm & gadgets organized. The primary BR suite is a serene & comfortable space with plenty of closets & built-ins. The main floor includes a 2nd BR, a large, treehouse-like screened porch, stunning curved foyer, powder rm, laundry rm, & mudroom. Need a quiet home office or guest space? Just steps from the kitchen, there is a second private suite w/ 2 rooms, bath w/ shower, & separate entry. The home's architectural detail extends to the 2nd floor where circular windows adorn another private wing consisting of 2 comfortable bedrooms & 2 full baths. The walk-out basement features a roomy home gym/play area & ½ bath. Amenities include central air, security, irrigation, 3-bay garage (2 std; one small), whole house generator, pet containment, composite decking, lovely stone walls, circular driveway & lovely landscaping. Estate-like setting abuts conservation land and trail. This beautifully maintained property is a rare offering.
