Sited majestically on a 1+ acre bluff above 172+/- feet of rocky coast frontage on Frenchman  Bay is this immaculate custom contemporary home on three levels that has drawn on the art of the ancient Orient for its architecture, style, and decor.  A true masterpiece.  Tile and wood floors (some teak), superb redwood trim throughout, woodstoves, two bedrooms, two and a half baths (one with redwood shower), European fixtures, lots of glass for passive solar heating, and private apartment on the ocean level.  Charming separate building with electric, phone and woodstove for a great workshop/studio.  Two-car garage.  Beautiful mature landscaping with hinoki cypress, weeping cedar, and a rhododendron garden.  A special maple was saved at the deck during construction to strategically provide cooling shade to the house in the summer, enhancing the passive solar design of the home.

And the VIEWS from all this are incredible!  West facing between Iron Bound Island and Jordan Island, both with conservation easements, straight across the famous sailing waters of Frenchman Bay to Bar Harbor and the mountains of Acadia in the distance.  Beyond the islands stand the purple mountains of Acadia with the town of Bar Harbor nestled on the hillside in the far distance.  To the south stands famous Egg Rock Light, for centuries marking the entrance to Frenchman Bay, named for its discoverer Samuel de Champlain (the Frenchman).  A cruise ship coming or going can be glimpsed from time to time among the islands, and working lobster boats provide their touch of Maine to this ever-changing tableau.

And did we mention the SUNSETS?  Absolutely breathtaking as the clouds burst with color over Cadillac Mountain from this west-facing home.  These magnificent sunsets are the best Maine has to offer!

A very special home on very special property only minutes from Acadia National Park's Schoodic Point, the coastal village of Winter Harbor, the yacht club and golf course.
