Peaks Island, Maine

Enter the spacious foyer of this stunning home a 15-minute ferry ride from intown, and beneath your feet is a mosaic map of Casco Bay and its islands. Near the center, embedded in the northern end of the Peaks outline is a tiny heart, marking “you are here.”

It’s an inspired touch, as is the hand-carved Indonesian teak double doorway that invites you farther in – to the huge chef’s kitchen, which is designed to be as practical as it is gorgeous. Cabinets are light-toned maple; counters including 8 foot by 6 foot island, and office space, are flint Corian; appliances, including Dacor six-burner gas range, are stainless. Octagonal windows, and rain-sensor Velux skylights, give a preview of the room to come.

This is the great room, the centerpiece of this 5,000-square-foot house, a geodesic 5 frequency dome created by Natural Spaces Domes; unique on the island, and extremely rare in Maine.

It would be difficult to exaggerate the drama of the great room, whose tongue and groove, light-whitewashed No. 2 pine soars 27 feet to a pentagonal cupola. As in the entryway, there are water (ocean) views through the trees. Concerts for a few dozen people have been held in this room, whose acoustics are excellent.

The dining area is in a recess to one side; across the room is a tile-floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, next to a door out to the deck. The deck, and also the two-sided fireplace, are shared with the adjacent master suite, which has a walk-through closet and a lovely bath with both oversized jet tub and oversized shower enclosure, with seat.

Radiant heat, passive solar, and whole-house air exchange are among a raft of completely up-to-date systems advantages. On the Berber-carpeted second level, a balcony loft/library/office provides abundant space for multiple purposes, exercise included.

The finished walkout, daylight lower level has a family room with wet bar, a guest suite, a “man cave”/media room, laundry/utilities, and an office suite with a darkroom that can serve as a bedroom. And above the garage, 1,000 square feet of finished space makes a wonderful studio, or could be converted to become another suite.

The home at 51 Woods Road, Peaks Island, is listed for sale at $987,000 by Jill Keefe of Port Island Realty, and is being shown by appointment. For more information or to arrange a private viewing, please contact Jill at 766-5956, 766-5966, or  jill@portisland.com.
