The house has water on three sides, with incredible views of Little Deer Isle and up Eggemoggin Reach towards Pumpkin Light and Cape Rosier. Five bedrooms upstairs sleep 12...15 at a pinch, a central shower, and an additional bathroom downstairs. An open floor plan includes a fantastic kitchen, dining room, and living room centered on a large granite fireplace. 250 acres of land and almost a mile of shore frontage surrounding a private cove make this one of the most remarkable properties still intact along the coast.
Four generations of the Waterman family have loved and cared for the Punch Bowl. It is peaceful, extraordinarily beautiful, and private in a way that is increasingly difficult to find. The Punch Bowl does not have television or DSL, and cell service is unpredictable. It does have amazing sunsets, its own beach and private anchorage, bald eagles and seals, several pairs of osprey that fish in the mornings and evenings, and magnificent porches that are perfect for sitting.
Access by air is through Bangor International Airport (1 hour away by car), Bar Harbor Airport (50 minutes away by car) or Portland International Airport (2 ½ hours by car). From Boston it is a 5 hour drive, from NYC 8 ½ hours. A country store is 5 minutes away on Rt. 15, more extensive shopping is available in Blue Hill, a 15 minute drive, and Ellsworth, a 30 minute drive. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are an hour away. Located on the eastern side of Penobscot Bay, just before the bridge over to Deer Isle, The Punch Bowl looks out on Eggemoggin Reach, a favorite destination for New England sailors. The Bay is dotted with beautiful islands, and schooners from Camden and Rockland are a common sight from the house as they work around Deer Isle.

Spectacular accommodations, views and property!
My children and I enjoyed a week stay at the Punch Bowl last summer. Although I have spent many summers in Maine, I rarely made it to the coast. After our stay at the Punch Bowl I will never miss another summer on the water. The house is incredibly warm and inviting. The fireplace is beautiful, the views are exquisite and the kitchen, gourmet! My kids (ages 5 and 8) had an amazing time exploring the beach and tidal pools as well as trails through the woods. The seclusion was a much-needed break from the busyness of our daily lives. The short drives to local, picturesque towns were worth the trip but we enjoyed just relaxing both outdoors and in just as well. An absolutely wonderful experience!

Why the Owner Chose Sargentville:
Purchased by our Grandfather because he loved the serenity of this part of the coast, the Punch Bowl property has been in the family for over 100 years. After losing the original home to fire 12 years ago, the Punch Bowl house has been rebuilt with an open, friendly, light filled floor plan. It's quiet woods, private cove, and beach remain the same.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The Punch Bowl sits on it's own neck of land down a long private driveway past stone gates and along the water. There are no other houses in view and a private anchorage in the Punch Bowl cove is available for anything up to 30'. Isolated in all the ways you could wish, it is still convenient to shopping and the lovely, old fishing town of Stonington on Deer Isle.....all the lobsters you could wish for right off the boat.
