One of a kind, contemporary architectural gem on the shores of the Kennebec River, with panoramic views of Maine's longest River....The first floor wraps around a grand staircase with glass and metal side panels, which leads to the second floor landing. To the left of entry, steps descend to the sunken living room with angled cathedral ceiling, floor to ceiling windows overlooking the river, and a 15 foot high granite chimney which serves a Vermont Castings efficient wood stove. (A woodwaiter delivers wood from basement to stove-side.) Sunlight from west-facing windows floods this room, as it does many others. Back up the 2 steps there's a dining room with river views, an office or potential fourth bedroom, a full bath with large window for deer and Monarch butterfly viewing, and at the base of the stairway, a seating area and a large chef's kitchen with butcher block island, breakfast nook and door to a large screen porch. Storage is plentiful (counters and lower cabinets are 3' deeper than normal) and there's a floor to ceiling dish closet and walk- in pantry. New refrigerator, deluxe exhaust fan, pendant lighting and UV shades that don't obscure outside views have been added in the past year. Up the stairs off the landing is a laundry room (laundry chute 'doors' open into it from 3 sides), 2 bedrooms with connecting bath, off of which is another partly covered porch. Down the hall toward the master suite are stairs leading to a third floor, 10' by 20' 'attic' room, perfect for kids playroom, exercise area, or retreat. A true attic room is off this where storage and a HVAC system is house. A full basement, part of which is walkout and can accommodate a compact car or boat(s), finishes off the 4 floors, providing unlimited storage. The cabin on water's edge boasts the feeling of dining and sleeping on the water.A one of a kind property being offered!
