                                  Year Purchased: 1998

                                  About the owner: Owners on property in main house on the 3 acre estate. We live here about half of the year. Our son is grown and on his own, so it is very quiet here.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor:
                                  Our family has vacationed and lived in the area for generations, so it was preordained that we would end up somewhere nearby. When we had a chance to buy this place we jumped on it.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                                  We found this property 17 years ago abandoned because of the time and expense it takes to keep an oceanfront property up to date. It took us 15 years to get it right, but now it is a truly first class environment.
