Picture this: You’re skiing down Sugarloaf mountain, the wind in your hair. Then, you veer off the trail, and within minutes you’re home, tugging off your boots in front of a blazing stone fireplace with a mug of cocoa. This could be your reality if you scoop up this ski-in, ski-out log home for sale in Carrabassett Valley, Maine.
The log cabin-like house at 6037 Sandy River Circle is not a cabin at all, but a six-bedroom, three-bathroom ski chalet. With just over 2,700 square feet of living space — almost five times the size of a Boston apartment — it has plenty of room for hosting guests. Vaulted ceilings and an abundance of windows create an added sense of spaciousness, as do the rustic exposed beams.
In the kitchen, ample glass-fronted cabinets can show off your Christmas dishes, while a long island makes room for four stools. The island overlooks an open-concept living and dining area, complete with a chandelier, recessed lighting, and the stone fireplace. Upstairs, carpeted bedrooms look out to mountain views.
The house also possesses a hallmark of cozy New England abodes: a mudroom. A warm, wood-paneled mudroom offers built-in hooks for hanging puffy winter jackets, and space for a bench. If the room starts to overflow with gear, the home’s finished basement has space for stashing extra ski equipment, as well as sliding glass doors that lead to the yard. Radiant heat throughout the home ensures winter’s chill won’t seep in.
For die-hard skiers, the chalet is a short distance from Saddleback Mountain, Crocker Mountain, and Mount Reddington. And in warmer weather, the sparkling Rangeley Lakes are about 40 minutes away.
The home’s listing agent, with AmNet Realty in Maine, calls the home’s 0.87-acre location one of the best on Sugarloaf Mountain. AmNet has set an asking price of $895,000.
