                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1968

                      About the owner: Our family built this home in 1968 before mid-coast Maine became the popular destination that it is today. Back then you were more likely to share the local roads with beater pickups and than Subarus and Lincoln Navigators. At the time central power was impractical, so we used a generator for electricity and spent evenings reading aloud or playing charades. The house was designed by architect Allen Moore in a New England vernacular shingle style with exposed wood throughout. Over the years we've added a bit of sheetrock and paint but the house still retains its rustic quality. The original owners (David and Erika, our parents) loved being close to nature. They kept their boat, the Chanterelle, moored offshore, for cruising the Maine coast. The great blue herons, the seals in the river, foxes and the occasional moose in the woods made this home a magical place. Today, the generator has been replaced with power lines and the moose are scarce, although bald eagles now nest by the water and deer and fox pass through the forest. 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 watching the boats, digging for clams or mussels (check for red tide warnings) and exploring 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.
