On the Market: A Shining and Serene Retreat in Freeport
Wake up to ocean views and wooded surroundings.
230 Flying Point Road, Freeport, ME
Size: 2,600 square feet
To the future owners of this house: Be prepared to feel like you’re permanently on vacation. From waking up to water views to taking it easy among top-of-the-line furnishings, the hotel-like home acts like a sabbatical from a traditional single-family.
The uncluttered lines and abundant windows shout out to Midcentury Modern design, but plenty of polished marble and geometric accents help the pared back style dazzle. The living room gathers around a wall of glass that peers out at Maquoit Bay, and underneath towering cathedral ceilings made of cedar. Zoom into the seemingly simple room and you’ll find a few fun details, such as a set of shelves with a hexagonal tile backsplash, and a built-in wine rack with matching six-sided slots.
Light continues to flood the kitchen, where custom walnut open cabinets transform dishes into wall art, and white marble counters with dramatic gray veining look like an oceanscape. In the eat-in and throughout the rest of the home, the floors are made of Italian porcelain tiles that mimic the appearance of whitewashed hardwood.
Though you might be eager to get up to the second-floor office or outside to the wooded yard for an early walk, lean into those lazy mornings. The master suite is a sanctuary all its own, owing to the posh bathroom (see: the waterfall shower head and eight-foot-wide mirror) and the skylit sleeping area with a fireplace and built-in TV with surround sound. When you’re ready to get up, just click the motorized shades on and they’ll ascend to let in the daylight and ocean sights.
