Completed in 2005, this private home is located on quiet, scenic Long Cove, on the water. The property has 350 feet of shore line. A small stream runs down one side of the property and empties into a pretty inlet to the right of the house. Seals, bald eagles and fishing osprey are often seen from the porch along with other shore birds and wildlife.
The 1600 sq. ft. house is built on an open plan. Downstairs holds a large family room/kitchen/dining area, and a separate combined master bedroom/bathroom/laundry suite that opens on to a deck. A second bathroom and bedroom have recently been added. Rooms feature solid quarter sawn white oak flooring.
The bedrooms, kitchen and living areas look out on tidal Long Cove in the direction of the sunrise that, from the queen size bed in the master bedroom, can be absolutely breathtaking. Upstairs holds a very large, open bedroom with two single and one double bed.
Across the 'reach' is Blue Hill, which lends itself to a good hiking challenge. Cruises are available that take visitors around the islands as well as to Vinalhaven, North Haven and Isle au Haut. The latter island is part of Acadia National Park and offers some pleasant hiking.
