Deer Isle house description

Winding Hill is situated at the end of a long, quiet and peaceful winding lane, off the Sunshine Road, along the shores of picturesque Greenlaw Cove. The home backs to expansive shore front and views, where an inlet wraps around two sides of the property, further extending the impressive views, including breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Our guests describe it simply as 'sublime.'

The home is surrounded by forest, offering ample privacy, and often visited by a variety of birds and wildlife, including a mother deer who brings her young to nibble in the grassy yard. A family of eagles nests on the cove, often flying by the house, particularly on windy days. The sound of the water, constantly moving with the tides, soothes and beckons you to come and explore the cove. Walk the shore line at low tide and pick up clams and mussels to enjoy for lunch. The shore front is perfect for slipping into a kayak and exploring this picturesque area, or dipping in for a summer's swim in the ocean. Pack a lunch and paddle over to Campbell’s Island for a day hike, and see the seal families living just off the shore. Or, venture further out and experience the wonderful waters of Eggemoggin Reach. Come back in the Fall to enjoy the beautiful Fall foliage!

Inside the house, abundant windows capture the surrounding beauty of the property - carrying nature in to this 'soft' contemporary home, designed by architect Robert Knight of Blue Hill, Maine. The house is in excellent condition, and the caretakers are readily available and accommodating whenever anything is needed. The interior is laced with quality furnishings, exuding a casual comfort and warmth. The layout is versatile, with bedrooms and baths on three separate floors, as well as separate guest quarters with full bath in the garage building.

A master suite loft with bath (with a large soaking tub) is on the top floor. There is a king-sized bed, a twin day bed, sitting area, and a large picture window overlooking the cove. The second and third bedrooms on the main floor have a king-sized bed and a queen-sized bed respectively. There is a main floor full bath. Both main floor bedrooms have picture windows overlooking the cove. The main floor gathering area is a large, open living area with windows on all sides and lovely views of the cove; a kitchen (complete with everything you need for preparing and enjoying your meals); and a dining area that seats 4-10 people comfortably. The main living area has a wood stove for a cool evening fire, and an enclosed entertainment cabinet with television, DVD player, and stereo for those rainy days spent inside.

An oversized back deck covers almost the entire back of the home, and provides a nice place to gather for coffee, cocktails and meals. Outdoor table seating will have you soaking in the sights and sounds of this incredible setting. An outdoor lobster steamer is available to you for preparing and enjoying one of Maine’s biggest attractions – fresh lobster! Visit the deck after dark to see an amazing night sky.

The lower level of the house has a large private room, half of which is a sitting/study area with desk, computer, and high-speed internet connectivity (WIFI throughout the house). The study also has a full-sized futon bed, and overlooks the cove. The second half of the room is another sleeping area with a full-sized futon bed. There is a full bath on the lower level, as well as a laundry room.

A new guest room has been added in the separate garage building, and provides sleeping for two to four people (a twin bed, a double futon bed, and a sleeping sofa), a sitting area, full bath, and a view of the cove. There is also a small refrigerator, a television and a DVD player. It's perfect for kids or adults who want a little place of their own. There is a small basketball hoop and court outside the garage. The driveway can easily accommodate four cars coming and going.

This home easily lends itself to both smaller and larger parties, cozy enough to be romantic, but spacious enough to house larger families or groups.

                            This house was everything as described and more! Our family had a wonderful week enjoying the huge deck, beach area, kayaks and watching eagles land on the rocks. The location is great to enjoy all that Deer Isle has to offer and close enough to Acadia for day trips. We certainly hope we get the opportunity to return!

                          Why the Owner Chose Deer Isle:
                          We love Deer Isle, and are the third generation in our family to enjoy the island. As you drive over the Deer Isle bridge, and look out over Eggemoggin Reach, you can feel the city stress melting away.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          When we are here, we love to wake to the sound of the gulls and move with the pace of the tides.
