Blue Hill house description

Turn onto Camp Stream Point Lane and stop to gaze over your meadow and western view of the saltwater estuary known as the Bagaduce River. Welcome home! This architect-designed and custom-built home, completed in 2011, has a thoughtfully designed layout, perfect for an intergenerational family or two or three couples. With its fresh decor, well-equipped kitchen, new appliances, beds, linens and most furnishings, the home is both comfortable and pristine.

First floor: West-facing great room with sliding doors to two deck areas (one covered), a full kitchen ready for as much cooking as you'd like to do, large pantry and inside stairs to basement. “Guest wing” separated from great room by entry foyer and sliding door – two bright bedrooms (one with queen-size bed, one with two twin beds) with large windows and lovely views of river (leaf-filtered in summer) and woods; a tidy full bathroom with shower.

Second floor: the master suite – king-sized bed, spacious room with large windows and nice, leaf-filtered water view, private deck, desk area, large walk-in closet and smart and cozy 1.5 bath (shower/tub; toilet; two sinks separated by slider door.)

Basement: Clean and well-lit with exterior access. Unfinished but with radiant heat in the floor and a pool table with a ping pong table cover - perfect spot for kids and pool shark wannabes. Also has an electronic dart board. The new full-size washer and dryer are down here too.

From your home, immerse yourself in all that makes this spot special. The decks are lovely places to relax for the glowing sunsets, watching the wildlife and a planetarium-like view of the stars. The flat, grassy side yard is great for a game of catch. Walk down the short path to launch your kayak to explore the water. It’s just a short paddle to Eagle Island or the reversing falls and a bite at the James Beard Award-winning “Bagaduce Lunch.“ Scan the pines along the shoreline for “softballs” – those white balls are the heads of perching bald eagles.

A mere 10 min. drive takes you into delightful Blue Hill, complete with an independent book store, boutique shops, art galleries, varied and delicious restaurants, a wine shop, library, Post Office and sweet park on Blue Hill Bay with playground equipment. Children love the touch tank at Marine Environmental Research Institute (MERI), where you can also attend a lecture or go on an Eco Cruise. Kneisel Hall – the internationally recognized chamber music school - holds summer community concerts as does the local steel drum band, Flash in the Pans. Visitors can check out books at the beautiful Blue Hill Library and stop in the studios of the local painters, sculptors and potters. Hike up Blue Hill for marvelous views of the coast and islands that define downeast Maine.

When you’re ready to venture a bit further, check out the historic villages of Castine (a town with an exceptional history and home of the Maine Maritime Academy), Stonington (an active fishing village and where you catch the mail boat ferry to Acadia National Park’s Isle Au Haut – a wonderful day trip), Deer Isle (with the well-known Haystack Mountain School focused on crafts and offering lectures and galleries) and Brooklin (the center of wooden boat building and sailing). All can be reached in ½ hour. Acadia National Park (with Cadillac Mountain, hiking and carriage trails, pounding surf and beautiful vistas) is an easy hour away.

And after your local excursions, you'll return to the simple comfort and beauty of 1 Camp Stream Point Lane. Ahhhhh...

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      Why the Owner Chose Blue Hill:
                      We've traveled a long way for many years to reach this bit of paradise and are thrilled to have a place of our own. We love being close to a wide variety of 'things to do' but not in the middle of it. As hikers, kayakers, nature, book, art and music lovers, we can do everything we love and love doing nothing too!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The house is fresh, cozy and easy to be in. The decks and large windows allow us to watch nature, whether on the river or in the trees and meadow. We can easily slip our kayaks into the river and explore the shoreline and toast the lovely sunsets from the meadow or decks. An then there's the star-gazing from the top deck...breathtaking. All this and we're close to all that is the Blue Hill Peninsula and nearby Acadia National Park.
