              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1993

              About the owner: Sunflower Farm is our home. Wendy & Ken love good food and wine, beautiful architecture and gardens, history, theatre, music, interesting people and worldwide travel. We're delighted to be your hosts in Maine and share the insider's secrets we have learned about the area we've called home for 4 decades. Also, Wendy is a Notary Public and thereby authorized to perform marriages by the State of Maine.

              Why the Owner Chose Blue Hill:
              Sunflower Farm is a gorgeous property with a fresh water stream flowing into the Salt Pond, a 4-mile long inlet from the ocean. Sited on a shallow tidal cove bordered by Carleton Island, home to a nesting pair of bald eagles, osprey, blue herons, ducks and seals, it is a Maine paradise. Local Abenaki tribes once used this land as their summer camping grounds.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              You'll appreciate use of this exclusive, private estate and the quiet beauty of natural surroundings. Sunflower Farm has 4 acres to explore, filled with gardens, squirrels, birdsong, and several separate outdoor seating areas in sun or shade for enjoying a good book or breathing in the beautiful water views.
