Tenants Harbor house description

Conifers is what you would expect from a traditional summer house nestled in the wooded shores of famed Hart’s Neck.

Quaint and stunning with a vintage feel, this property has long been part of the owner’s family. Now, it’s your turn.

Originally built in the 1880s, this renovated farmhouse – crisp with white clapboards and green shutters – sits on four acres and is located about 3 miles outside of Tenants Harbor Village (or a 5 minute boat ride across the harbor).

The property is well maintained and has access to a dock at the mouth of the harbor. The property is private with woods for exploring, a lush green law and a natural stone patio. Fantastic Drift Inn Beach is just 2 miles away for those who want to spend time on a true sandy beach complete with tidal pools.

Not-to-be-missed Port Clyde is a quick 5 minute drive away and the larger cities of Camden and Rockland are within a 20-30 minute drive.

The kitchen is fully equipped and, like the rest of the house, has all modern conveniences we have become accustomed to. The house has cable television and WiFi Internet connection.
Off the kitchen find a dining room with a wet bar, fireplace and a large dining table. In this wing of the house you will also find 3 bedrooms and a full bathroom complete with double sinks and a combination whirlpool tub/shower.

The first 2 bedroom each have 2 twins (they can be moved together) and have lovely views of the lawn and woods. The second bedroom, which is on the 2nd floor) has 2 twins as well and a small bathroom with a sink, toilet and mini-tub.

The second wing of the house is comprised of the great room and the master suite. The great room has beautiful vaulted ceilings, built in book shelves around large windows and windowseats, a fire place and living room furniture. You will find the television and dvd player here as well.

The master suite is accessed via the great room – this truly serene suite has direct access to the fully appointed south facing terrace via French doors and overlooks the wooded area behind the house. Find a queen bed and a sitting area and a full bathroom with a toilet, bidet, whirlpool tub and a shower.

The house has access to a privately shared harbor-side dock. Guests have enjoyed swimming from the dock and tying up (temporarily) a small boat. There are public tennis courts about a mile from the house. The dock is about a 3 - 4 minute walk from the house.

If more space is needed, this property may be rented with the guest house (Conifers Island View) with provides another full bathroom, kitchen, living area and 2 bedrooms that can sleep 4.
