Pemaquid Harbor house description

Overlooking Pemaquid Harbor, the ocean and the islands, High Point is a historic home built by a sea captain. It is beautifully maintained and has a wrap-around covered porch and also a large open deck with expansive views of the lawns, rolling meadows, as well as the ocean. A short walk down the hill is the Pemaquid Fishermen's Co-op. From High Point you can watch the lobster boats go through the islands in the morning and arrive home at sunset.

The Victorian style home has an open double living room with a sliding door onto the original wrap-around porch, a formal dining room, a well-equipped spacious family kitchen opening into a glass enclosed sunroom with a dining table and a lovely wicker seating area. A sliding door opens from the sunroom onto a large deck which looks out over the 'million dollar' view. The deck is an incomparable place to enjoy your morning coffee and in the evening a magical place to watch the sunset while relaxing with hors d'oeuvres, evening wine and having family dinners by candlelight.

The upstairs has three airy, bright bedrooms, and also features a small library off the master bedroom as well as a cozy New England alcove bedroom with a single bed. There are two full bathrooms upstairs and a half-bath downstairs.

HIGH POINT IS AVAILABLE NOVEMBER-MAY WITH SPECIAL RATES FOR OFF SEASON.

                          Location

                          High Point is an easy walk to a working lobster dock and small restaurant that has the 2nd most beautiful view on the coast of Maine. It is also a short drive to Pemaquid Beach, the famous Pemaquid Lighthouse, historic Fort William Henry, a fresh water swimming pond, kayak and canoe rentals, tennis, a beautiful golf course, public docks for fishing, a ferry for seal, whale and puffin watches as well as remarkable day trips to the hiking and artist colony of Monhegan Island. The Botanic Gardens, in close by Boothbay Harbor, are phenomenal!

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1965

                          About the owner: My two brothers, sister and I inherited High Point from our parents in 2007. They maintained their home magnificently and furnished it with antiques and Thomas Moser furniture. My siblings and I grew up in Connecticut and our parents bought High Point when we were teenagers...hoping for escape time from us, I'm sure! They retired full time to Maine in 1972. I live with my family in the mountains of Colorado. My three children and I, along with my brothers, sister and their kids, have spent every summer in Maine exploring the beaches, tidal rocks and pools, hiking islands, kayaking, canoeing rivers and learning to live without all the craziness and pressures of 'the real world.' Maine is how life should be!

                          Why the Owner Chose Pemaquid Harbor:
                          My brothers, sister and I are understandably very attached to High Point. Not only because it was our parents home but it has always represented uninterrupted family time. It is a large, uniquely Maine, comfortable, sunny house surrounded by lawns, flowers, views and magical lighting. The memories are endless of croquet on the lawn in hysterical laughter, hours on the beaches with my parents and their grandchildren catching crabs, making sand sculptures, celebrating birthdays on the large deck, after dinner ice cream cones in New Harbor, day trips on the ferry to Monhegan Island to hike all day and build fairy houses in Cathedral Woods, and loud family lobster dinners at Pemaquid or Round Pond lobster docks. High Point is surrounded by summertime action of parades, historical events, art shows and galleries, antiques and an old-fashion movie theater. I could go on and on................

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          High Point is located in a part of Maine that has many attractions but never feels touristy! Pemaquid Beach has a long white beach and dunes and it is easy to find a quiet spot to read or nap! The area is physically so breathtakingly beautiful. Exploratory road trips or bike rides take you to surprising beauty around every corner. Walpole Barn hosts wine tasting at tables in their apple orchard and two libraries offer children's hours. The historic digs at Fort William Henry date back to before the French and Indian War and sometimes they offer to have volunteers join in and learn archaeological techniques! The Carpenters Boatshop is fascinating to visit and they also offer classes. There is something for every age and every interest nearby.
