Katahdin Home Description
The Katahdin home is an outstanding log home design from Katahdin Cedar Log Homes, headquartered in Oakfield, Maine. Their location in northern Maine gives Katahdin Cedar unique access to one of the few remaining major stands of northern white cedar in the USA. Katahdin Log Homes offers quality solid cedar log homes that set the standard for all others.

This 2,300+/- sq. ft. log home at Cathance Shores includes three bedrooms and 3-1/2 baths. The setting is Lot S-05, which is nestled in the serene Gray Cove Community with a spectacular view of the Lake. The home features a spectacular lakeside deck made from cedar, with two gazebos including a fully screened-in porch for truly enjoying the outdoors. The central chimney is highly efficient and enhances the hand-hewn appearance of this log home from the lakefront view.

This Katahdin home offers a comfortable master bedroom with fully tiled bath and roomy closet, as well as two guest bedrooms, each with its own bath. There is also a half-bath on the main floor. The central stone fireplace in the living area with hand-hewn slab mantle compliments the exceptional quality of this custom-built log home. A full basement is also provided which can be built out to a family room in the future.

Enjoy the luxury of being amongst the trees, lakeside, nestled in a Log home that echoes the restorative balance of being close to nature. Here at Cathance, close to the shoreline of one of the State's most peaceful lakes, the design of this "creature comfort" home is unbeatable. The Great Room focuses on spaciousness, design, warmth and comfort. Its central point, the handsome stone fireplace with raised hearth is surrounded by the cedar logs which harness the look and feel of strength, togetherness and space. Space abounds for gathering, TV, reading, conversation, dining, family time over meals, snacking and fun.

The kitchen, created by Canadian master craftsmen who take pride in their work have used the finest of materials to produce an only-for-us customized kitchen of functional convenience. Granite counters in the kitchen (and also the master bath) project the beauty of color and texture that was chosen to blend with the basic hues of nature's wood tones. Granite, stronger, more durable, able to withstand heat and impact is virtually maintenance free and will retain its natural beauty and shine for decades. Informal meals can be had at the breakfast bar, and more dining space is provided adjacent to the kitchen. The appliances provided in the kitchen are of the newest design and convenience. Refrigerator/freezer, range, microwave, and dishwasher are installed and ready to make the dream a reality.

Behind the scenes are three generous bedrooms, the master on the first floor and two guest bedrooms on the second. Each bedroom has its own complete bathroom, the master featuring a two-bowl vanity and large ceramic tile shower. Space and plumbing for washer/dryer is provided on the main floor behind doors. The second floor loft which is open to the Great Room is spaciously ready to provide for office/hobby/playroom/or additional guest space. Outdoors, the huge deck facing the Lake beckons for leisure and restorative purposes. On either side as part of the deck are covered gazebos for use no matter what the weather. One of the gazebos is totally screened for outside eating and luxuriating. The total package of 2,300 sq. feet of design perfection, awaits your presence to start building and banking your meaningful memories —summer or winter — at your lakeside residence at Cathance.
