Property description

Some of the most amazing views you'll ever experience from this hilltop contemporary perched above Burnt Coat Harbor on Swan's Island. This custom 4 story home has 3 levels of decks on the water side to enjoy views of the Gulf of Maine Islands and beyond to the open horizon of the Atlantic. Words cannot describe the beauty of this area and the unique setting of this house. There is a right of way to the shore for swimming and boating. There is a mooring in the harbor available for your use. Come experience this island getaway and hike the numerous island trails, explore Fine Sand Beach, just sit and eat lobster at one of the local sites or buy and cook it yourself and enjoy from the expansive wrap around decks.The ferry ride is only 35 minutes from Bass Harbor. Southwest Harbor is just a few miles away from the Ferry terminal with grocery stores and restaurants and Acadia National Park's headquarters and entrance would be about 1/2 hour drive from the mainland side of the terminal for great day trips.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Owners are a married couple (40 years) with 4 children, 2 son-in-laws, 5 grandchildren and 1 dog. This is our summer home and maybe our full time home in the future.

Why the Owner Chose Swans Island:
Our summer home has so much to offer it's difficult to list all the attractions. BUT if you enjoy quiet, private and peaceful vacations Swans Island is a special place.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Nature is at the back door. The ocean off the front decks. Lobsters for the asking. Amazing views of the harbor and ocean. And at night an astronomical delight
