“SEASCAPES” An ocean lover’s dream. Step into Seascapes and enjoy ocean views across the sound to Acadia National Park’s Schoodic Peninsula. This shingle style home is a thoroughly modern take on the fine homes of grand and historic Grindstone Neck. This exquisitely designed, constructed, and maintained gem was built in 2006 by Mike Hewes, one of coastal Maine’s finest builders. The home boasts 4,740 square feet of premier quality construction; 15 rooms; 5 bedrooms; 5.5 baths; 10-foot ceilings with period molding; custom built-ins; quarter-sawn oak floors; marble tile; marble, granite, and mahogany countertops; radiant heat; native granite fireplaces; high speed cable internet. Enjoy the custom designed cook’s kitchen with Wolf, Sub-Zero, and Bosch appliances. Everything about this home is custom, including the butternut trim cut from the owners’ maple sugar farm. Grounds are terraced with native granite quarried on site, sloping toward the shore.
Sail the unrivaled cruising waters of Downeast Maine and beyond. Take a ferry or your own boat to visit Mount Desert Island or one of the many neighboring islands. Bike from Seascapes to Schoodic Peninsula’s oceanfront park loop road and take in the views along a dramatic stretch of Maine’s rocky coast which include the Mark Island lighthouse, Frenchman Bay, and Mount Desert Island. Relax on the screened porch and glass railed decks with ocean views, watching as fisherman tend their traps. At the end of the day, step out to the beautiful shore path or to Grindstone Avenue for a stroll to enjoy the spectacular views from the pink granite rock of Grindstone Point.
Located on the Schoodic Peninsula in the coastal town of Winter Harbor, Grindstone Neck is perhaps the best-preserved summer colonies in all of Maine. The welcoming Grindstone community was started in the 1890’s and is still home to some of the founding families. The charm lingers in this vibrant community with neighborhood amenities which include a yacht club, a nine-hole golf course overlooking the ocean, a heated swimming pool, and four tennis courts. Grindstone Neck has truly provided a sense of family and place for generations. The center of Winter Harbor is just a few minutes away with quaint shops, galleries, restaurants, a locally owned supermarket, an old-fashioned ice cream parlor, and a five and dime store. The Schoodic Peninsula, containing the only portion of Acadia National Park on the mainland, boasts granite headlands, rocky beaches, and spruce-fir forests.
