Mount Desert house description

Have you always wanted to visit Mount Desert Island and vacation in one the most beautiful and visited National Parks? Now you can afford to come AND enhance your vacation. Stay in the Lupine Lane home, located in the center of the island in the first settled village of Somesville.

The house sits on a 2 acre lot and is very private with woods on all 4 sides. The home has 3 bedrooms: 2 bedrooms with queen beds and the last room has twin beds. A large, southern facing living room and dining room with a sliding glass door provides lots of sunshine and easy access to the front deck. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, large refrigerator, and all the typical kitchen appliances and supplies. The two bathrooms compliment one another: one is a self-contained bathroom with the shower, sink and toilet all in one room. The other bathroom has a washer/dryer and sink in one room with the shower and toilet in an adjoining room. This allows more people access to getting ready, do the laundry, etc. The walkout basement is fully furnished with 2 futons, a 49' flat screen TV, books, games for the whole family, and a recumbant bike. The 5,000 square front lawn provides plenty of space to play wiffle ball, horseshoes, run around, and generally enjoy the Maine outdoors.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: I grew up on Mount Desert Island. I was born in Bar Harbor and lived in Northeast Harbor with my 4 brothers and sisters and two parents. Now I live in Somesville, a small village in the town of Mount Desert. I am the principal of a small K-8 school on the backside of the island. My school has 120 students and is one of the best schools! I have two grown sons and a husband. I love the island and living on it. It is a beautiful place but even more that that, you can do so many things: swim, fish, climb mountains, walk on carriage trails, go boating, kayaking, canoeing, lots of places to swim in both fresh and ocean water, and most of all, it is simply one of the most beautiful places you could ever see.

              Why the Owner Chose Mount Desert:
              My husband and I bought our property with one of my sisters. The original acreage was 4 acres so we split it right down the middle. She built her home at the mouth of the driveway and my husband and I built our home at the very top of the driveway. We designed our home and I decorated and chose all of the paint colors and furniture. My other brothers and sister are near by and we all appreciate that our children have grown up together, attended the same high school, and have carried on our family traditions.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              One of my favorite attributes of my home is the location. It is centrally located on the island. I can drive to all sides of the island and off the island in about 15-20 minutes. This is a huge benefit! As I mentioned before, our home is surrounded by woods but we are minutes away from an Art Gallery, a small museum, and the town library. Along with this, I love the huge windows that face out to the lawn, trees, and blue sky. Every one who visits us always comments on how nice and airy our home is.
