Property description

This warm, secluded and enchanting country home with breath taking views from every window will make you think you’ve just stepped into a Currier and Ives painting. There are many near by activities to enjoy; you can water sking, boating or fish right from the dock. A twenty minute drive will take you to the historic town of Brunswick.

The post-modern, shingle-style, 4100 square-foot house is located on Sebascodegan Island in Casco Bay on the coast of Maine.The property is situated on a totally private, secluded peninsula within the Cundy's Point Association on five plus acres, with 2000 feet of shoreline. The house is within 50 feet of the water on all three sides. There is a private dock which will accomodate a boat of up to 40'and a mooring is provided. To the West are open views of Quahog and Casco bays, Big Hen, Birch Island, and Yarmouth Island. To the East is Ridley Cove and the picturesque fishing village of Cundys Harbor. The International Jet Port is just 50 minutes away.

The sunrises and sunsets from this location are magnificent. There are several paths from the house through the extensive natural landscaping, perennial beds and cutting, vegetable, and herb gardens, which add charm and color all year long. The gardens extend to the sea banks; they are professionally kept and contain peonies, old-fashioned beach roses, lilacs, Asiatic lilies, dahlias, blueberries, wildflowers, lupines, rhododendrons, bayberry, hydrangeas and foxglove.

The Living Room faces the water with direct access to the wrap-around deck through three sets of French doors and a staircase to the back gardens and deepwater channel. The Living Room also has a woodburning fireplace! Directly behind the Family Room is a large screened porch for waterfront dining and boat watching. Upstairs there are three large bedrooms and two guest baths. There is one one king sized bed, two queens beds, two queen pull out beds and two twin beds. One of the bedrooms has an adjoining sitting room, which can be used as a fifth bedroom.

The property also has a dock for tieing up your boat or swimming.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: Rick Wohlfarth is a specialist in residential real estate . Rick established Wohlfarth & Associates, his own Upper West Side brokerage (NYC) firm in 1978, as a developer and general contractor creating moderate and low-income housing in fringe areas of NYC. Rick is a CPA who has worked for ten years with both a public accounting firm and a Fortune 500 company. As an investor in New York City buildings for co-op conversion and condominium development, Rick lives on the Upper West Side and thus has the advantage of knowing intimately the townhouses, co-ops and condominiums all over NYC. 

As principal of Wohlfarth and Associates, Rick emphasizes the following factors as instrumental to the firm’s success and solid reputation: personal interest and service, thorough knowledge of the market, good negotiating skills, honesty, and accountability. Rick is licensed in New York, Connecticut & Maine and has sold and leased over $1 billion worth of properties, ranging from luxury co-ops and condos, to lofts and townhouses. Fluent in Portuguese. . 

Over the years, Rick has assumed a leadership position within the industry, formerly as Chair of the West Side Committee of the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY), whose mission is to promote and uphold the highest professional standards of practice. Rick has also been a member of REBNY’s Deal of the Year and Public Relations Committees. Rick was the 2012 President of MANAR (Manhattan Association of Realtors) and sits on the council Board of Directors of FIABCI (The International Real Estate Federation - New York City Council). In addition, Rick is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the New York State Society of CPA’s. He is a frequent lecturer at numerous institutions including New York University, the City University of New York, and REBNY. and personal decisions, and his warm, no-nonsense straightforward manner reassures his clients.

Why the Owner Chose Cundys Harbor:
I bought this property a number of years ago because I was surrounded by water on all three sides and the complete privacy of being on a peninsula. I live and work in NYC in an apartment building so this offers a completely different escape for me. Most of the islands nearby the house are deeded back to the Harpswell Land Trust so they will never be developed and will remain untouched. We have a American Bald Eagle sanctuary in the island (Big Hen Island) directly in back of the house and they visit us in the trees frequently.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Water water everywhere, watching the boats go by , really being in nature. This is not just a typical rental house. It's my 2nd home. It has been professionally furnished with antiques, and original Maine art. I want people to enjoy it just the way I do when I am there.
