              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: Tim is a real estate broker/developer with Prudential Northeast Properties and Tammy is a ultrasonographer. We have 3 children and live here year round.

              Why the Owner Chose Northeast Harbor:
              Only 2 blocks from downtown Northeast Harbor yet on a quiet side road. Also 2 blocks from the Post Office, grocery/liquor store and the Island Explorer bus stop. Bike rentals are also available next to the Post Office.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We call this architecture, Colorado meets Maine. We moved to Northeast Harbor from Colorado and many of the unique furnishings and interior finishes that adorn the home are from Colorado. It is a style we call rustic elegance.
