Property description

Gaze at the water from almost every room in this tastefully designed & comfortably furnished home on the banks of Penobscot Bay central to both Camden and Belfast. The home is sun-drenched with large windows facing the ocean and glorious light all day long. open layout is functional and maximizes the views from the kitchen, dining room, sitting area & living room -- all flowing together from space to space. This is an exceptional home to entertain in and it can accommodate a large group or family effortlessly and in style. A gently sloping & grassy back yard leads to a classic Maine beach with stunning ledge outcroppings & granite boulders. A waterside fire pit and picnic table offer a great spot to enjoy the day or night. Two rare sand beach areas are just a few hundred yards to the north or south and offer endless opportunity for beach combing and ocean exploring Maine style.

The Main House

Main house consists of 3 bedrooms on 2nd floor including the master suite with shower & soaking tub. The master bedroom is spacious and has broad views up and down the bay. A full bath with double sinks services the other upstairs bedrooms and a full laundry room is also located on the 2nd floor. The 1st floor features a large kitchen with granite counters & island and professional 6 burner stove and griddle & stainless appliances. The dining room offers seating for 10 + and is open to the kitchen & living room and framed by multiple bay windows with panoramic ocean views. The comfortable living room offers plenty of seating for watching a game or movie and has views to the ocean as well. A cozy sitting area with woodstove & lovely views offers additional space for relaxing. A 4th bedroom is also located on the 1st floor. A bathroom with shower & mudroom/entry, and 3-car garage round out the 1st floor. The finished basement also offers additional bedroom space for children or young adults and also features a bath with shower providing a 5th bedroom in the main house as necessary.

The Loft Apartment

A privately situated loft apartment over the garage offers spectacular views in a rustic yet contemporary setting. Vaulted ceilings with pine boards, massive fir beams & exquisite red birch floors create a stunning loft like living space. Kitchen with stainless appliances, living room area with cozy gas stove, pleasant bedroom with carpet, bath with shower & laundry, kitchen & additional loft area for kids provides a spacious and very unique living experience. A private porch area looks out over the bay and islands with almost 180 degree vistas. A staircase connects directly to the kitchen area of the main house thus offering a direct connection while also allowing for more privacy in the living & bedroom areas.

Outside Space, Yard & Beach

The home is surrounded by a lush grassy yard, shrubs and some woods yet the feel is essentially wide open with lots of sunlight and views everywhere. A large back deck offers outside eating and sitting areas as well as a 6-person hot tub over looking the ocean. The beach is 200 feet from the home and is easily accessible down the gently sloping lawn. A neat old fish house covered with lobster buoys sits right on the edge of the ocean and houses kayaks, beach chairs, firewood, and all the items one needs to enjoy a Maine summer on the ocean. A local paddleboard outfitter will gladly guide you on a tour of the nearby coast right from you own beach!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I grew up in Camden, just a few miles down the road from here and was lucky enough to return with my husband to raise our four children in Maine. My husband is a Real Estate Broker here in town and we are both very active in our community. This area is a truly special spot and we believe whether this is your first visit or your 100th, it won't be your last! We work very hard to make your stay enjoyable, we are accessible…you may run into us in town at Boyton Mckay or having a snack on the deck of the Waterfront. We hope to see you soon!

Why the Owner Chose Camden:
A wonderful place to enjoy the ocean and the freedom for kids to play safely. The house is large without feeling too big, and it all comes together to make a wonderful place to be with family and friends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The setting, house, views and convenient location to Camden & Belfast distinguish this home. It is simply a one-of-a-kind and provides a spectacular spot from which to base your Maine vacation.
