OPEN HOUSES CANCELLED! Only pines & hemlocks can be seen when gazing over the Kennebec River from this gorgeous newly constructed home located at the head of spectacular Merrymeeting Bay. Not a home or structure obscures this view worthy of a painter's brush. The bay, fed by 6 rivers, is home to many migrating birds & migratory fish, providing a wildlife refuge to countless others. Retreat to thoughts of a simpler century as you contemplate the east side of protected historic Swan Island, which sits opposite the deep channel between Richmond & Dresden. Look south to see the Kennebec open up to Merrymeeting Bay before it slips through the Chops, then rolls on to Popham & Reid State Parks. Think of the ships, the stories...imagine pondering all that, every day, from a home this exceptional with water views from all rooms. This contemporary cape is thoughtfully designed, brilliantly constructed & energy-efficient. It is snugged into its breathtaking site & offers easy 1-fl living from the attached garage & mudroom, on. Laundry & half bath are just inside the informal entrance. The 1st-floor primary bedroom is complete with walk-in closet, large bath with 7'-deep shower & water views from sliding glass door & private deck. The great room generates a WOW upon entry; the kitchen, with quartz counters, pantry & large island, is one with the dining & living areas. A gas fireplace provides a focal point that in no way detracts from the view. A waterside deck wraps around to a covered porch. On the 2nd level, 2 bedrooms at one end of the hall share a full bath. An office room greets you before you are welcomed by the grand suite. The 2nd-floor primary waterside suite will send your soul soaring with its wall of windows, cathedral ceiling & private balcony. The stunning ensuite bathroom features double vanities with slate counters, soaking slipper tub & oversized separate shower. Paddle, or boat to the ocean...sunsets courtesy of Mother Nature!
