Gorgeous Oceanfront Home on the Maine Coast Kayak Trail
- 2997Square Feet
The View from the Point--and from the walls of windows in this Maine crafted contemporary home—are what Maine is all about. Featuring a centered view of famous Petit Manan Lighthouse in far Canadian waters, the view then sweeps across the bays and ocean to north and south, encompassing long views of the peninsula of Petit Manan Wildlife Preserve, the Wilderness Shores of Dyer Point, and out to sea. Up close are Sally, Bold and Eastern Islands of the Sally Island archipelago off Corea which attract the unique sea and bird life this area is known for.
Even closer—very, very close!—is the view to the south of Dry Island, on the Maine Coast Kayak Trail, an overnight stop-over on Outward Bound excursions. To the north lies the gem of what is locally known as the Mill Pond—a large, quiet cove that brings eagles and other bird life to this endangered shorebird protection area and is perfect for leisurely kayaking. Watch the deer swim across to the shore on the other side! You can see all this right from your kitchen table!
The House on the Point: Spacious, open contemporary sited perfectly to maximize the magnificent views and complemented by the natural landscaping of this lovely point of land on the sea. Artfully designed by local architect, Ralph S. Buckminster, and decorated with an artist’s eye, the home has combined the charm of lofts and angles with the comfort of mostly single-level living and a bedroom suite with screened porch separated from the rest of the living area by the kitchen.
The eating area off the kitchen is surrounded on three sides by walls of windows, creating a living panorama of all the life of the sea and land surrounding this one-of-a-kind property. Decks run along the front of the house, overlooking the flowers and shrubs of the exquisitely landscaped yard running down to a babbling brook that cascades out to the sea. The land gives gentle access to the ocean.
A huge basement room and large two-car garage provide great storage space. (Owners stored 300+ boxes of books (6-10 thousand volumes) there, so lots of shelving.) Plenty of room for kayaks and outdoor gear.
This property is truly a magical place along the Coast of Maine!
