Sweetwater home rests next to Mullica River

{child_byline}BY MAXWELL REIL Staff Writer


Barbara and Bob Maskos lived in their Sweetwater home for over 30 years, hosting family parties and activities throughout the decades in summer and fall.

During the warm weather, the two would have about 100 people come to their house and tube down the Mullica River in their backyard.

When the weather got cooler, the Maskos would host Halloween parties on their back decks.

They would see beavers and otters right out back and, due to its proximity to the water. And because of its separate dwellings inside the home, the couple would even have family members stay for periods of time throughout their 30 years of owning the home.

The property, located at 4610 Pleasant Mills Road, has a total of 12 rooms: six bedrooms and four full bathrooms.

Though it only lies on one acre, the expansive property has a huge outside deck leading to the Mullica River, plenty of trees and floor to ceiling windows out back which provide wonderful natural light.

The home is cedar-sided with three separate living spaces, each with their own kitchen.

The first floor apartment has three bedrooms and a bath and cozy fireplace.

Upstairs, on the main floor, is a huge master bedroom with bamboo flooring and a vaulted ceiling. It also features a gourmet custom kitchen with Neff cabinets and high-end appliances.

The main floor’s living room has sliding doors leading out to an extra large deck overlooking the Mullica River. It is an ideal spot for hosting summer cookouts or nighttime cocktail parties.

Out on the deck is a covered seating area with an overhead fan and steps leading down to the first floor (perfect for lounging on warm summer nights.)

All the furniture and chandeliers are negotiable as part of the sale, according to Sue Dunphey, realtor for Re/Max Atlantic.

“This unique contemporary on the pristine Mullica River is multi-generational with 3 levels of living space,” Dunphey said. “It’s a very tranquil setting--ideal for boating, kayaking, fishing & swimming”

There are decks on all four floors of the home.

For Barbara Maskos, she said it was nice having a property where multiple family members can stay and enjoy their privacy.

“When we bought it, my husband’s mother lived with us,” she said. “You may have parents that maybe down the road can move in or can’t afford to stay elsewhere. It’s wonderful to have the family in the house with you and not have to worry about them. That’s what we wanted to do.”

And if you have kids getting ready for school at the start of the new year, you don’t have to worry.

“The school buses stop 50 feet from the house,” Maskos said.

The property is listed at $499,000. For more information, contact Sue Dunphey at greenbank@mindspring.com
