Property description

Roaring Spout Farmhouse is a classically inspired house located in the lovely and desirable Hart’s Neck area of Tenants Harbor. When you think of Maine, the tall pines, long days and dotted sunlight spilling onto hardwood floors through a screen door, this is the house that should come to mind.

Five minutes from both Tenants Harbor and Port Clyde Villages and just 2 miles from Drift Inn Beach, the area’s only sandy beach, Roaring Spout Farmhouse offers privacy, room to spread out and close proximity to all the area has to offer.

Reminiscent of traditional summer “cottages” of Bar Harbor and Cape Cod, the house is purposefully uncomplicated, situated on 6 wooded acres. The house brings the outdoors in through vast doorways, a multitude of windows, sun porches and decks. The grounds are well kept with green lawns and working vegetable gardens, tended throughout the summer by the owner who will gladly share her harvest.

There are also fruit trees on the property and a natural pond. The crashing waves can be heard from the house; the shore itself is a short stroll away (one-tenth of a mile), via a walking right of way, and is protected by the Georges River Land Trust to preserve its natural beauty.

'Stark beauty” is how one guest described the interior of the property.

Think of a summer vacation with people coming in and out of the house, shoes optional, no schedules, naps on call, books read on a sunny porch or under cover.

The house can sleep 10 people – a bedroom located on the screened sun porch (you can close the windows in inclement or cool weather) with a queen bed. This is a fantastic room if you want to fall asleep to the sound of the sea roaring in the distance, moonlight peeking in at night and crickets chirping in the morning sun.

The first floor has a traditional farmhouse eat-in kitchen with pantry and easy access to the back deck for dining outdoors. The ceilings are unusually high on the first floor, giving a breezy and open feeling.

The kitchen connects to a sunny living room with fireplace, plenty of seating and a small flat screen television with cable and a den area.

Off the living room is a bedroom in what was once a sunroom. It has a queen bed and direct access to the decks – this is a fantastic room if you want to fall asleep to the sound of the sea roaring in the distance, moonlight peeking in at night and crickets chirping in the morning sun.

A powder room with a washer and dryer and a mudroom is also located on this floor.

A wide staircase provides access to the second floor. There are three bedrooms on this floor and two baths.

The large master bedroom is large with a ¾ en suite bathroom and a walk-in closet. There is a queen bed and a sitting area in the bowed alcove overlooking the back yard.

The second bedroom is connected to the third by a Jack and Jill full bath. Both bedrooms have double beds, lots of windows and plenty of room to spread out. The second bedroom overlooks the backyard; the third overlooks the front yard

This is a perfect place to walk, explore, read, run and have the type of vacation that a family remembers for years.
