Overview

If a great location is the foundation of real estate value, a great design is the mortar that strengthens it.  This property has both.  Designed by renowned architect Richard Burt, and incorporating many features that were before their time, it has radiant floor heat, an open floor plan, high insulating R-factors, propane fired heat, and glass walls that bring the light and color of the outside in. The house has been featured in several books and on the cover of the inaugural issue of Maine Home & Design magazine.

The lot is located in desirable Perkins Point off the River Road just 5 minutes to town. Included is deeded salt water access to the Damariscotta River via the common deepwater dock.

Sited on a small gravel lane off the Perkins Point Road, this peaceful well-landscaped spot features an oak grove, stonewalls and a view across adjacent fields.  The common dock and waterfront are a short walk. In winter, the river glimmers through the trees.

You come into the house via four massive stone steps. The entryway is a convenient area to hang coats and shed boots before proceeding to the kitchen or beyond to the dining and living areas.  Underfoot is the handsome stained and burnished concrete floor with radiant heat. For added coziness, the living room features a wood-burning fireplace with black slate accents.  The full-height glass walls and doors in these areas make the beautiful grounds part of the inside atmosphere.  The custom-built maple cabinetry throughout the kitchen, dining room, living room, family room, and master bedroom are of one design and flawlessly accents the structure.  There is a handy half-bath on the first floor, as well.

At the south end of the second floor is the master bedroom suite including a full bath with over-sized whirlpool tub and separate tiled shower, copious closet space, high ceilings, and the natural light that characterizes the entire design.  The washer and dryer are located at the end of the master bedroom’s hallway. The media room, which is an alcove in the hallway between the master and the other two bedrooms, creates just the right place for people to gather.  The two other bedrooms on this floor share a second full bath and have connecting lofts. Each loft has 6’ headroom and can accommodate a full-size bed and bedside table. A small office with built in cabinets completes the second floor. The entire property is served by an automatic propane generator.

Oriented to take advantage of northern light, the detached studio building was designed for the artist.  Downstairs is a large open room with radiant floor heat and floor-to-ceiling French doors.  The space suggests an artist’s studio, dance space, yoga studio, or exercise gym. There is also a half bath, kitchenette space, and storage room on this ground floor.  The carrying beams have been engineered so that the French doors can be removed to convert the space into a two car garage.  The upstairs, previously used as an architecture office, is one large building-length studio space with a bank of north-facing skylights, built-in perimeter counters, bamboo flooring, and carefully designed lighting and fan fixtures.

Built of local lumber, well-insulated, and fitted with a high-efficiency propane furnace, this home is environmentally sensitive while taking full advantage of the natural beauty of its location.
