Conceptualized by a renowned ship builder, this true post and beam home was crafted from timbers that were felled and milled from the property. The beams have chamfered edges and are one example of the care that was taken in every detail of the house. Set on 1.52± acres with 150 ft± of waterfront, with protected views of west Penobscot Bay, the protected lands of Turtle Head and Sears Island, this 3-bedroom, 3.5 bath home has space and elegance and comfort. The open floor plan includes a chef's kitchen, large hearth and chimney built from local island stones and offers multiple sitting areas all with water views. Radiant heat throughout the house warms the Brazilian slate floors on the first floor and wood floors of the second floor. The large deck is perfect for entertaining and offers the opportunity to watch both the sunrise and sunset. The garden level with a private entrance, offers a separate space for guests, staff or renters to have their own full bath, second kitchen, dining space, bedroom and enjoy the water views. Plenty of storage in the mechanical room and the attic. The grounds have been cared for and there is a walking path that leads you down to a pebble and stone beach. Plenty of privacy is offered by the up-island location and the thoughtfully crafted protective easements for view and vegetation. The northern side of the property abuts 24 acres of conservation land. The private dirt roads that lead you to the property are well maintained. Stay connected with fiber optic broadband internet with 1 gibibyte connection speeds. Used as a successful seasonal and year round rental in previous years, consider the opportunities with this year round home. Islesboro is a 20-minute ride from the mainland town of Lincolnville, accessed by a public car ferry, water taxi or private boat or small airplane. No drive by please.
