This gracious oceanfront home and beautiful yard sit at the convergence of the Little River and Penobscot Bay. The shoreline is graced with lovely old black locust trees and the well landscaped lawn area makes a private and beautiful place to relax and watch the tide or to entertain guests. When guests walk through the gate onto the lawn for the first time, they use words like "stunning", "magnificent", "an oasis".
With 17 spacious rms and 8 baths, the 4500 sq ft bldg has potential for many uses. It could be used as an 8+ bdrm single fam home. It currently includes the spacious main residence, a 1100 sq ft 6-rm professional office space and a 750 sq ft 1-bedrm apartment. Also on the property is a 600 sq ft building housing a garage and workshop and a two story 420 sq ft "boathouse" with storage on the 1st floor and a studio on the second.
The original part of the house was built in 1796 and still contains the large center chimney with fireplaces on 2 sides. Over the decades, nicely integrated additions have added to the size and usefulness of the building.
Some furnishings could convey with the property, if desired.
The property is convenient to downtown Belfast, which was voted one of the " Best Small Towns in America" by Mens Journal, one of America's "10 Coolest Small Towns" by Budget Travel and one of "10 Great Small Towns To Visit" by MSN Living. Three miles to stores, galleries, movies, etc., hospital even closer, yet the house and yard feel very private and far away from the bustle of town. It is protected from the road by a tree covered hillside and a large parking area.
This property has been enjoyed and cared for by the current owners for 25 years. It's availability offers a unique opportunity to purchase a very special piece of the Maine coast.
