Central Maine’s premier lake region – The Belgrade Lakes is renowned for its natural scenic beauty and recreational amenities. We are pleased to offer this spectacular property located in the heart of the area.
When the current owners arrived at 8 Joly Lane for the first time, it was a much different sight – a classic but tired farmhouse, a deteriorating barn, and a broken down fence. Despite these visible challenges, they knew they had found their home. “The peace you find staring out at the water is truly remarkable.” With nearly a thousand feet of direct water frontage on East Pond, 16 private acres with open fields, mature fruit trees, beautifully landscaped grounds and an abundance of wildlife, the setting is truly one-of-a-kind.
East Pond offers ample recreational activities from swimming off the property’s dock, boating and fishing in the summer to snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter when the water freezes vastly expanding your backyard.
After living in the farmhouse for several years, the owners took to making the property the gem you see today. The stunning custom Lindal Cedar Home perfectly complements the surrounding landscape. Built in 2004, every aspect of the home was thoughtfully designed.
Walking into the main level, you’re greeted by the stunning open concept living area accented with custom stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows looking out to the sparkling waters of East Pond. To your right is the custom cook’s kitchen with quartz countertops and beautiful cherry wood cabinetry. Perhaps one of the most coveted rooms in the home is the south facing sunroom overlooking the meadow. Added in 2008, the sunroom was built with a glass that keeps the glare out, regulates temperature and allows you to enjoy the beautiful scenery year round including the winter when the wood burning fireplace makes the room even more inviting on a snowy day. In the warmer months, enjoy the vistas from the home’s large screened in porch or the deck facing the water. You might just be lulled to sleep by the calls of the loons in the afternoon sunshine.
The 4,300 square feet include an inviting daylight lower level, finished with a family room, bedroom, washroom and a work space. The home has four bedrooms including one ground level, two on the second level including the master bedroom with an en-suite bath and walk in closet, and one in the lower level.
Other amenities include a three car attached garage, an automatic generator, water filtration system, solar water heater, and radiant first floor heating.
The cottage, sitting directly on the water’s edge, was completely remodeled in 2002. The charming space features a bedroom, an inviting living area, kitchenette, bathroom and screened-in porch. It is the perfect private space for the friends and family who will be vying to visit.
Add to this - the barn! Originally constructed sometime prior to 1850, the barn was fully restored, completed in 2007. It is not only visibly striking but functional with lots of open space for storage and ramps to transport things in and out.
8 Joly Lane could be your forever home, your home away from home or your peaceful retreat.
