Bayside cottage description

Sunny Side, one of the great historic cottages of Bayside Village in Northport Maine was built in 1885 and was completely rebuilt in 2010. Sunny Side is a two bedroom two bath cottage with an open downstairs floor plan featuring a wrap around porch, two living areas and a large, gourmet kitchen / dining area. A 250 square foot second floor deck has lounge chairs and a table that seats six. The deck has an incredible view! Sunny Side sits perched on a bluff with views of Penobscot Bay from every room in the house. We are just a short 80 foot walk to ocean's edge. Come relax on the porch, read in a cozy nook, or kayak to your heart's content on the Bay. Sunny Side had all new beds and furniture mixed with a delightful group of antiques of the period. Downstairs bath is equipped with grab bars in the shower stall. You will love this house! Sunny Side sleeps seven in a King, a Queen, a twin, and a pull-out Queen sofa in the living room.


The Kitchen: The kitchen is an open plan and opens out to the family room, which faces the bay. There is a small dining area and a breakfast bar. Gourmet Appliances, Jen-Aire cooktop, Frigidaire side by side with icemaker and water dispenser. Dishwasher. Ceiling height in the downstairs rooms are 10 feet. There is a washer dryer in the basement, accessible through the garage.

The parlor: In the original part of the house, on the first floor is a small cozy seating area, and the stairs to the second floor all surrounding the original double doors of the house which open out onto the covered front porch. Sit outside here on graceful chairs and watch your children play in the 'square' of park that is Merithew Square. There are two beautiful maple shade trees in the front yard to keep the house cool during those August afternoons. This room is a perfect place to watch the world go by while catching up on some reading or checking your email.

The Family Room: Your back door opens into the family room, in the new addition off the rear of the house. This large room has two sets of sliding glass doors that open onto the wrap around balcony overlooking Penobscot Bay to the East and the old water pump in Merithew Square to the South. This sunny room will provide the perfect place for family togetherness as it opens onto the kitchen area. The family room is a delightful mix of antique wicker new upholstered furniture, and antiques.

                  Car: Necessary

                  Bayside Village in Northport Maine is situated approximately 10 miles north of Camden and 3 miles south of Belfast in the area known as 'midcoast Maine.' We are very close to hiking in the Camden Hills State Park, whale watching in Bar Harbor, the Farnsworth museum in Rockland, The Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockport, and the fantastic Colby Museum of Art in Waterville. An eclectic mix of restaurants await. There is Primo in Rockland, The Edge in Lincolnville, and Francine's in Camden. Marshall Wharf Brewing in Belfast usually has 15 of their own brews on tap next door at 3Tides, one of the finest taverns in Maine. Sightseeing is beautiful, Take the ferry to Islesboro, Vinalhaven, or Monhegan, or take the short 6 mile drive down to Lincolnville Beach and comb the sandy beach and have a lobster roll.

                  Golf: Take a cart around the public Northport golf course with it's circa 1910 clubhouse. This is a beautiful course and a great place to get out and swing some clubs. We are approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes from the Belgrade Lakes Golf Club, voted one of the top 100 public courses in 2009. A Clive Clark design, the course is worth a day trip from here.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: We have owned and been renting cottages in Bayside for 9 years now and are locally owned and operated. We moved to Maine from Chicago about 13 years ago and found the Northport/ Belfast area by accident. Now we never want to leave! We love it here for all there is to do and see. Come experience Maine at its best! Coming soon is a hip 2400 sf 3 bdrm/3ba apartment right in the heart of downtown Belfast.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bayside:
                  Sunny Side is an incredible property with views of Sears Island, Islesboro and Penobscot Bay from every room in the house. When we bought Sunny Side, we could have pushed the house over by ourselves. We spent 10 months essentially building a new house inside the period shell, but it was worth it! Sunny side has good flow and excellent presence in the village.
