''Summerhouse'' is a classic Shingle Style year-round cottage sitting on the magnificent shores of the Penobscot Bay overlooking Islesboro, Castine, Blue Hill and Mt Desert Island. The home is a refined blend of classic architectural features and modern comforts including central air conditioning, high speed internet and satellite television. The property is exquisitely landscaped with mature flowering shrubs, trees, and perennial gardens. An overall sense of calm envelops you as you walk under the wisteria arbor and look past the sweeping lawn out to the magnificent view of the sea. Your private, sandy beach can be reached by a gentle walk down the stone steps to the lower deck. A walk along the cobblestone path and the beautiful gardens brings you to the covered entrance into the front hall. The circulation and open floor plan of the elegant and comfortable home radiates from here into the library and main living areas, featuring 9 foot beamed ceilings, and the game room. The main living area of the home is a combination of the library with built in bookcases, a four season sunroom overlooking the bay, a covered porch and a large living room with a wood burning fireplace. The gourmet kitchen, with its large butler's pantry, opens to the dining room facing the ocean, and is perfect for entertaining. Mahogany stairs lead up to the second floor with a large master bedroom suite, attached study and well appointed bath. An additional bedroom suite also overlooks the bay. A servants' stairway leads to the laundry room and additional bedrooms and a bath in the guest wing. ''Summerhouse'' is located between the charming towns of Camden and Belfast with access to a full range of shopping, theaters, galleries and museums, and hiking trails, along with a nearby yacht club and golf club. A short walking distance away is the intimate community of Bayside with cottages that date back to the mid 19th Century.
