Welcome to 73 Island Drive in West Newfield, Maine. This year round, waterfront sanctuary is beautifully located in the highly desired neighborhood of Shady Nook on the sparkling shores of Balch Lake. Sizeable at 704 acres with the only full service marina in the area, this lake is full of opportunity and character. This property boasts 100' of privately owned, sandy, clear waterfront and has an enormous, oversized dock to get you out to all of your water toys with ease. It is not often that you will find a gradual sandy beach area welcoming you into the lake but this property makes a serious exception! This home has perfectly mixed year round comfort with the charm and expectation of living the perfect 'lake life'. Upon entering this home, you will find yourself in one large, open concept room that allows everyone to gather together with ample space. A gas insert will keep you extra warm on chilly nights and the enclosed porch offers a great space for coffee on early mornings. With no lack of places to sleep you can choose from any of the three bedrooms on the main level or grab 10+ of your friends and sleep up in the loft! Perfect for entertaining, there is room for everyone! This road is an association road that is accessible year round. Plenty of storage available in the 6' basement and a new septic and well have been installed in 2012! Excitement, fun and possibility are all waiting for you at the lake!
