Property description

'Ferneden' is located in Hancock Point, within walking distance of tennis courts, water front, library, non-denominational chapel and the Crocker House Country Inn. The 4 bedroom cottage has a sweeping lawn on three acres and was the home of Captain Agreen Crabtree in the late 1700's. Ferneden's large comfortable rooms provide a relaxed private setting for family and friends.

The large living room and dining room can easily accommodate eight guests. A full kitchen, library, pantry/laundry room and entry foyer complete the downstairs layout. Upstairs are four bedrooms and two baths. One bedroom has a small balcony. A wrap-around porch includes a screened-in section for evening comfort.
HP is one of the finest traditional family summer communities of Down East Maine since the nineteenth century.
