The views of Mt. Washington and the Presidential Range from this beautifully renovated home are spectacular. Often known as the Fox-Perry House, it was designed and built by Charles L. Fox and Curtis A. Perry to resemble Mt. Pleasant as a gathering place for those interested in music and visual arts with recitals of chamber music and vocal solos given in the concert room. Fox was a well know artist, socialist, philanthropist, and lifelong partner of Perry, also an artist. The current stewards have lovingly restored and brought the property up to today's standards with quality renovations that speak for themselves. It shows wonderfully and tastefully. The home offers a gracious and easy flow throughout the living spaces, outdoor decks and fire-pit entertaining areas, and mesmerizing views that make the home perfect for entertaining or just enjoying some quiet solitude. The design, quality, and character of this home are evident throughout. With nearly 5,000SF, five generous bedrooms, four full baths, and a bonus room (concert room), the home offers plenty of space for everyone, yet feels quaint and cozy at the same time. One can cuddle up with a book by the Rumford fireplace while taking in a good novel, relax in the hot tub while enjoying the snow glistening on Mt. Washington and Shawnee Peak, or enjoy the evening sky surrounded by friends and family at the stone fire-pit area in the lower field. Whatever your outdoor dreams may be, they can be fulfilled year-round. Bordered by the Lakes Region there are plenty of activities from hiking and biking, skiing at Shawnee Peak, or enjoying activities on one of the 30 local lakes and ponds. Within a few miles from the property, one will find Highland Lake Beach and the Bridgton Highland Country Club for golf and tennis. Bridgton offers a cool sense of community offering a small-town feel with lots of love from its residents which makes it the perfect place to call home. 50 min. to Portland, 7 min. town center.

I live in Falmouth with my husband and children. We enjoy outdoor activities year round, whether it is going to the beach, camping, biking, or skiing and snowboarding. The greater Portland area has all this at its fingertips and is truly a wonderful place to live. My family has relocated four times so I understand the stresses families and individuals face while considering a move into a new community, selling their home to move on, or even a move across town. Originally from Santa Barbara, Ca, I have also lived in Colorado and Massachusetts. Committed to my communities, I have been involved with school PTO, private and Montessori school boards, Junior Women’s Club, coaching travel soccer, as well as working with my local Board of Realtors on several community projects. After practicing finance in the government and corporate sectors, I lacked the people contact I wanted so I began selling real estate. At that time, I made a pact with myself that I would provide the finest level of service to every client I was fortunate enough to serve. Many years later I am still treating each and every one of my clients as if they were my only client, it’s what I do best. Always going above and beyond, it’s about integrity, commitment, hard work, energy, experience and results. I am friendly, caring, and aggressive and just love what I’m doing. I delight in hearing my clients say “wow”! I am a Realtor® and nationally accredited as a Buyers Representative and a Home Marketing Specialist by the National Association of Realtors. Most importantly, I am excited about getting to know you and turning the page on this new chapter in your life!
