Stoneham, Maine | $1.795 Million
A 1997 house with three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and a guest studio with a half bathroom, on a 2.8-acre lot
This house, designed by Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects, has won awards from the American Institute of Architects and the American Society of Landscape Architects. The property is about half an hour from the New Hampshire state line, with views that stretch across Horseshoe Pond — where the home has a private dock — into the White Mountain National Forest, a landscape that is bright green in the summer and awash with rich reds and oranges in the fall. The area is remote: The nearest grocery store is about a half-hour drive, and Portland is an hour and 40 minutes away.
Size: 3,998 square feet
Price per square foot: $449
Indoors: The main entrance is at the end of a private driveway, next to the garage. The front door opens to a short set of steps leading to a hallway with concrete flooring.
The living room, at the far end of the hall, has a black concrete fireplace, a wall of glass overlooking the grounds and another glass wall facing a separate wing of the house.
A few steps away is a kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and counters. Off one side of this space is a breakfast room framed by windows that look into the trees; off the other is a dining room with high ceilings and access to the main hall. Also on this level, just off the entrance, are a laundry room and a half bathroom.
