on Peabody Pond,
Sebago, Maine


Built in 1960, the 1,100 square foot year-round home was purchased by the current owners in 1997. They’d first discovered Peabody Pond when a colleague invited them to spend a day. “Upon arrival, we were immediately impressed by the beauty, peacefulness and tranquility. Months later, knowing how much we loved the lake, my colleague informed us that his neighbor’s house was for sale. The rest is history,” writes the owner.

On the first floor, you’ll find a diminutive, yet high-end kitchen, living room, master bedroom and 3/4 bath. Both the living room and master bedroom offer spectacular views of the pond. Step out the door onto the deck and find yourself only 15 feet from the water’s edge. The second floor features two sleeping areas and a full bath–but the sleeping areas could easily be transformed into a master suite, complete with a sitting room. And again–the to-die-for view! All rooms, except the kitchen, are adorned with the classic camp style pine walls and floors–bringing a warm touch throughout.

A staircase leads to the 100-foot waterfront and dock. The water quality of this 735-acre pond  is above average and described by Peter Lowell, executive director of Lakes Environmental Association (LEA) as “One of the Cream of the Crop lakes in our area.”

At first, the house served as the owners’ vacation getaway–as it might for you. It provides a perfect family retreat. After retiring, the current owners moved to the lakefront property full time and never looked back. During the winter, they lived on the first floor only and were able to heat the home with less than one full tank of oil.

“In the summertime,” he tells us, “nothing beats sitting in the living room and watching the sun rise . . . a close second is seeing the sun rise while on the boat, fishing for salmon and trophy-sized smallmouth bass.” They also love the beauty of autumn and then there’s the winter wonderland–”You can’t beat skiing at Shawnee Peak, which is 20 minutes away, or hopping on the snowmobile and being able to follow the trails all the way to Canada right from your front door. Sometimes you share the trail with a small herd of deer or a flock of wild turkeys. For sheer peacefulness, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing across the lake is a special treat. For many years we have had a winter cookout on the frozen lake for our neighbors over President’s Day weekend.” During spring, they welcome back the resident loons and other birds and look forward once again to activities on the waterfront–as well as time spent playing with their children and five grandchildren.

So . . . why are the current lakefront property owners selling, given all the fine attributes of this house? It has to do with those grandchildren I mentioned above. They live in Vermont and New Jersey and the grandparents love spending time with them. “The only reason why we are going to trade this little piece of paradise is to be closer to them,” he explains.

Now it’s your turn to make this piece of paradise on Peabody Pond in Sebago yours! I guarantee you won’t look back either.
