Rackliff Island house description

Rackliff Island is easily accessed by a short causeway/road.

Calling all nature lovers! In a word, 'Edges' is splendid! It is gorgeous, peaceful, private. Dark green spruces mingle with black and white birches. Mosses and lichen color granite rocks. Wild Maine roses spice the salt air.

Our house faces South,on the water's edge. The view is down the cove (protected, deep-water anchorage) to sea . The property runs the entire 600' on the cove's west side, encompasses over 3 acres and ends on a spectacular point with views out to Monhegan Island. Views are gorgeous and you have privacy and space. You can walk, fish, read, create, boat, daydream. Paddle a kayak around the islands. Dine al fresco on the point. Watch the incoming tide splash its way against the rocks. Search for treasure left behind.

The house's cedar-sided exterior is contemporary. The spruce and pine interior is warm and inviting, with exposed beams and columns.

Our house features an extended living room, with a dining area and kitchen at one end.The master bedroom/full bath suite,plus private porch and deck are off the east end. There are 2 decks and a portion of the master bedroom deck is screened. A multi-story window in the living room provides wonderful light and view. Floors are random width pine with area rugs.

Furniture is casual and comfortable. The modern kitchen includes gas range, microwave, and dishwasher. There is also a half bath and laundry room with washer & dryer. Second story features: 2nd bedroom has dressing area with 2-steps up to sleeping area, queen-sized bed, water view. 3rd bedroom with twin beds, hall full bath (T/S), library/loft with water view.

                      Car: Necessary

                      Come to 'Edges' and you won't want to leave.But Rockland, Rockport, Camden, Thomaston, Port Clyde,are minutes away and have it all:nationally acclaimed festivals,1st class museums,auctions,historic sites,golf courses,restaurants and day cruises.Want to do the blues with stars like Bobby Bland? Go to The Blues Festival in Rockland. How about the art of the Wyeths & other prestigious artists who painted New England? Spend the day at The Farnsworth Museum; later visit the home depicted in Andrew Wyeth's 'Christina's World'.

                      Rather play golf? Tee off oceanside at the Samoset or 3 Dogs PC. Like cars, bikes & airplanes? Owl's Head Transportation Museum is for you. They have many summer events,even live auctions- no telling what you could bring home! And there are many nearby antique auctions.Or treasure hunt at flea markets.

                      Don't forget Rockland's Lobster Festival, with parade,exhibitions,and 'lobstah'! I have it from a reliable source there's quite a few 'lobstahs' with your name on them.

                      Kayak and explore around the islands.Fish from off the point or on a deep-sea charter boat.

                      Enjoy great golfing on the ocean, at 3 dogs golf course and the samoset resort golf course, both within a few miles.

                      Dine at award-winning fine restaurants (Primo's grows their own produce), or enjoy relaxed home-cooking at small local establishments. Try the hardy breakfasts at the Keag,with the locals.
