This beautiful year round, waterfront home is located on crystal clear Highland Lake, a short walk to the quaint village of Bridgton Maine and 5 minutes from Shawnee Peak Ski Area. The house sits directly above the water’s edge on 350′ of water frontage. A small private beach cove with a very gradual sandy entry is perfect for young children. This house is an ideal spot for families to vacation year round. Swim, boat or fish right from the back door. Or sip your favorite drink on one of 3 decks, on the beach or in front of the beautiful fireplace. (Click to enlarge pictures)
Originally built around 1850, the house was completely renovated in 2012, adding contemporary features while maintaining its historic charm. There are stunning views from nearly every room, including the ultramodern kitchen with state of the art stainless appliances as well as quartz countertops. Three outdoor decks, two open and one covered, offer breathtaking views of the lake, loons and Mt. Washington. There is also a seperate private dock for mooring your boat or if you choose to rent one from one of the many local marinas.
Bridgton offers small town charm with many restaurants, drive-in and sit-down movie theaters, antique stores and shops close by. A 30 minute drive to North Conway or Sunday River or a 5 minute trip to Shawnee Peak, make this is the perfect location to enjoy swimming, hiking, fishing, shopping or just relaxing.
