In the family for 50 years, this Orono homesite was in need of modernization. What began as a remodel discussion eventually led to a rebuild of this cozy lakeside residence. But there was one prerequisite: keep with the spirit of the original home.

  • Relatively small in size, but big in character, this cottage-inspired home is perfect for family gatherings.
  • Reclaimed fir flooring from the old home was used as ceiling panel accents.
  • Unique details shine, like the custom sailboat-etched pane of glass flanked by two sets of French doors leading to a large sunroom.
  • The cozy main floor has all you need and is nestled together with every room taking in the stunning lake views.
  • Beautiful wood craftsmanship is on display in the home: wainscoting, shiplap, crown molding, oval windows, and inset cabinets abound!
  • The old-fashioned sunroom has a brick floor, shiplap ceiling, and original-style wood windows to enhance sunsets and feel a breeze on a hot day.
  • The upper level features two family bedrooms, full laundry, plus a bonus room for the grandkids with a Dutch door for quaint access.
  • Upstairs is also home to the unique owners’ suite with its private deck, separate tub and shower, and dual walk-in closets.
  • Leaded glass windows are worked into the cabinetry and allow for light to flow from room to room.
