Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: I was born and raised here on the Island. After college I returned and started Redfern Boat a boat building and storage business. We also own Up Harbor Marina a private marina on the harbor. I can offer local knowledge for restaurants, hiking, biking trails and swimming holes off the beaten path.
Why the Owner Chose Bass Harbor: This house is part of the historic old school house property. A large property where a town school was built in 1930. Over the years I have long dreamed of owning this important piece of our town's history. We purchased it this spring and have done a complete renovation to this house out on the back of the property that was built in the late 70's. The privacy of this back house and the neighborhood makes it ideal for families to relax and enjoy the property.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We wanted a nice house to live in close to the harbor. We also wanted a house that was away from the road and in this old neighborhood. Our neighbors are boat builders, lobster men, crafts people. Having a large green area also makes this property a great location for us to garden and find some shade on those hot summer days.
