Property description

'Sea Meadow' is a charming, shingle-sided cottage located on Naskeag Point in Brooklin, Maine. The cottage is located only 75 feet from the water on four acres of land and is surrounded by grass and wildflower meadows. There are spectacular open views across Herrick and Blue Hill bays to Mount Desert Island. (A photograph of the view from our property appeared on page 69 in the September 2008 volume of 'Down East' magazine.) The non-working Blue Hill Bay lighthouse is directly off-shore from the property. A private staircase provides access to over 260 feet of deepwater shore frontage and a beach with granite boulders.

The living room/dining area walls are covered in antique barn board siding with a beamed ceiling. The den includes an entertainment center that is well-stocked with board games, television, and a DVD player. There is a large deck that faces the ocean with a dining table and plenty of outdoor furniture. The kitchen and bathroom have been completely remodeled. (The bathroom has a stall shower only.)

The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed. The two cozy additional bedrooms each have built-in bunk beds. (Due to the fact that the top bunks do not have any railings, guests should only use the lower bunks.)

Brooklin, Maine is located on the southeast tip of the Blue Hill Peninsula between Blue Hill Bay and Eggemoggin Reach. It is a beautiful, quiet village that boasts it is 'the boatbuilding capital of the world.' Author E.B. White and his wife Katharine made it their home. Brooklin is still home to many fine boat builders, lobstermen, and the headquarters of WoodenBoat Magazine. People come from around the world to attend boat building or sailing classes at the WoodenBoat School. Brooklin is, quite simply, a very special place.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Our family loves to sail. This is a photo of our sailboat, 'Picaro,' on her maiden voyage.

Why the Owner Chose Brooklin:
The natural beauty of 'down east' Maine is unparalleled. Our entire family fell in love with the area the first time that we vacationed here. The scenery is gorgeous: the blue of the ocean stretching out to the horizon; dark green firs and pines hugging the rocky shore; hundreds of off-shore islands; and white clapboard Victorian farmhouses. When this property came on the market, we were captivated by the spectacular open views of the Blue Hill Bay lighthouse set against the backdrop of the mountains on Mount Desert Island.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The proximity of the cottage to the water is wonderful. My favorite thing is to get up in the morning before the rest of the family. The house is quiet and I take a good book and my morning coffee out on the deck. I love looking out at the constantly changing color and pattern of the water and listening to the waves lapping against the shore.
