Owner info

Year Purchased: 1968

About the owner: Our family built this home in 1968. The house was designed by architect Allen Moore in a New England vernacular shingle style with rustic exposed wood throughout. The original owners (David and Erika, our parents) loved being close to nature. The great blue herons on the mudflats, the seals sunning on the rock ledges, foxes in the woods, and the terns, ospreys, and eagles all fishing in the river made it a special place. This natural oasis continues to be a special place for our family. For some it takes a day to adjust to the quiet. You can spend hours exploring the cove on foot or by boat, digging for clams or mussels (check for red tide warnings) and wandering in the forest. At night you can keep the door to the end bedroom open and hear the water lapping in the cove or a distant heron.

Why the Owner Chose St. George:
For those who want more than just a sandy beach, mid-coast Maine is a special and haunting place, a rough-hewn granite coast of fjord-like peninsulas overlooking thousands of small islands topped by twisted spruce trees, sculpted by the wind. The cry of the loon through the fog is as bewitching as the sun glittering on the sea's surface, among dancing lobster buoys and gliding seagulls. Be aware that Maine tends to be wet in the early summer & cold in the early fall; you may need some bug spray in the woods... but as they say in New England, If you don't like the weather - stick around!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private, family time, amazing sunsets, swimming, walking, reading by the fireplace, picking mussels or digging clams, kayaking, sailing and row boating. Going into town for movies and ice cream. Excellent biking throughout the peninsula, running on the trails through the woods, followed by a refreshing dive into the water.
