SHIPSHAPE COTTAGE ON EGGEMOGGIN REACH

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Brooklin

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-5)

This small, grey-shingled cottage's most remarkable characteristic is its purchase on the water. The shoreside house perches above Wells Cove, a tidal inlet located just off Eggemoggin Reach, a wide passage connecting Penobscot Bay to Blue Hill Bay in Downeast Maine.

When the tide is high (twice every 24 hours) you seem to be afloat in a well-insulated, nicely-crafted boat. Even at low tide there are watery views from every window due to the building's site on a narrow little peninsula.

The house, which shares the peninsula with another small cottage screened from view by spruce trees and honeysuckle, was completed in l997. The living room, dining area, and kitchen, sheltered by a cathedral ceiling, are entered either through the glass paneled front door or the back door that opens off the porch. The walls and wainscoting throughout are painted pinkish off-white and the rooms are decorated, quietly, in warm shades: terra-cotta, rose, and beige.

A short hall leads from the living area to the bathroom (shower, no tub) and two bedrooms. Even though there is, above these three rooms, a loft area with pull-out double bed, the house is most appropriate, full-time, for two or three people. The loft is useful for occasional overnight guests.

Winter freezes allowing, a flower border separates the house front from the lawn. On the western, waterside is a small sunset-facing deck and on the ground below, space for outdoor furniture. The property also includes a small beach more useful perhaps for launching canoes and kayaks than bodies into the chilly cove.

Experienced potters please note: At the head of the 1/3 mile driveway is a clay studio occasionally available for rent.

I had been summering in Blue Hill for years, when I discovered this property in Brooklin.

I enjoy the beauty and solitude of this location and am exceedingly pleased with this small house that my niece Martha designed for me 10 years ago.
