This classic New England post and beam home is located on a semi private driveway on Osprey Lane in Cushing which has panoramic views of the Meduncook River from each window. The main level has an open concept from the cook's kitchen and island, an elegant dining room with sliders onto the water view shaded deck with dining table, and a spacious living room with cathedral ceilings and French doors onto the water view patio. A master queen bedroom with an en suite bathroom is also found on the main level, as well as a half bath, mud room, and laundry area. Enjoy breathtaking sunsets while playing board games or bar-b-queing on the deck.
Up the stairs from the main entry, you will find a queen bedroom with beamed wooden ceiling, full bathroom and a relaxing sitting area overlooking the living room. In the basement, you will find one bedroom with a queen and one with two twins, both having windows and ample closets. There is a full shared bathroom with tub/shower. Above the two car garage is another nice cathedral ceiling retreat with skylights and water views, perfect for teens to play games or read a book with some additional privacy from the group. The house is spread out so everyone has privacy, but can come together in the main areas to enjoy each other's company as well. There is a private dock on the property which is great for launching kayaks, picnics, and swimming from during mid or high tides.
Located conveniently in the Midcoast area, the Osprey Cottage is a destination for sea lovers and anyone wanting a relaxing and serene vacation getaway. The large, open property has excellent sun and allows space for the kids to play and explore while the adults enjoy a beverage on the deck with everyone in clear sight and an enclosed outdoor shower to rinse off.
Peaceful Cushing is known in American art as the site of Andrew Wyeth’s painting of “Christina’s World” that hangs in New York’s MOMA.
