This contemporary farmhouse was custom built and designed by Nicola’s Home, located in Maeve’s Way, a private wooded community in Cumberland Foreside, Maine. This luxury dwelling is an exceptionally designed family home with meticulous attention to every detail, as you will notice as you take a visual tour throughout the property. From the exterior of the home, over an acre of private property offers beautiful landscaping with a wrap around covered porch featuring mahogany decking. The stone wall detail is comprised of reclaimed stones that were sourced from the property. Inside, the home offers plenty of natural light and spacious living areas including an open concept living room and kitchen, a dining area, powder bathroom and plenty of sleeping spaces, including first and second level master en-suites, which allows the flexibility for an in-law suite or even a live in Au Pair for couples with young children.
