This stunning 5-bedroom home in Cumberland is across the street from Casco Bay with a gorgeous coastal design that was custom-built in 2020 with discerning attention to detail and the finest amenities. Every room is exquisite, like the dream kitchen featuring custom cabinetry, a center island with Viatera Quartz, a walk-in pantry, Brizo faucets, and top-of-the-line appliances.

While the kitchen is decked out in all-white cabinets and quartz countertops, the cabinets on both the island and inside the walk-in pantry are a vivid blue color. The wood shelving brings in some natural warmth and pops against the subway tile backsplash, and the antique gold light fixtures complement the wood tones. We love the farmhouse-style sinks in both the kitchen and the pantry, allowing for multi-tasking and entertaining. The rug completes the space, making the space feel cozy and inviting for barefoot children to wander in for late-night snacks. Plus, who doesn’t love a mini-fridge with a clear door?
The chic laundry room uses the same white subway tile as the backsplash, but with sage-green cabinets, dark gray slate countertops, and a vibrant tile on the floor. The closet rod above the washer and dryer is a smart hack that we think should be installed in all laundry rooms, and the mixture of open shelving with baskets and closed cabinets optimizes utility storage space with a pleasing design.

Welcome to Files Farm, a dreamy farmhouse on 46 acres that was originally built in 1776 and has blueberry bushes, orchards, and beautiful gardens and cropland. The rustic kitchen has a post and beam style with moss green cabinets and a mix of stainless steel and black finishes. The open wood shelving in the walk-in pantry displays all of the dry goods, coffee maker, and liquor cabinet, plus an extra sink. Learn more about this Maine home for sale here.
The combination bath and laundry room space is divided using a small wall, allowing optimal storage space in the laundry area. The mix of open shelving on the top and drawers on the bottom is a great use of space. We also love that sink, faucet, and Mason jar light fixture.
