Castine estate description

Beech Hill is a 3 house Estate with electric gated entry on Castine Road less than 1 mile from Historic Castine and within walking distance to Wadsworth Cove beach. The property is 8 acres with numerous mature trees and gardens. Between the houses there are 10 bedrooms with room to sleep 18 people in beds. Each house also has a kitchen and a living area and at least 1 bathroom. The main house is a charming federal style house that was built in 1807. The property also has a small children's playhouse, wonderful beech trees full of children's swings and many places to build natural forts and other places to explore. There is a great open field for kite flying and family games. Due to its elevated location overlooking Hatch's Cove the main house enjoys a nice consistent cool breeze and great tidal water views. Beech hill is a perfect place for a multi- family family reunion or a family compound for a wedding in Castine or Blue Hill. It comes with a great selection of toys and games for the kids and books and quality bed linens for the adults. It is a true throwback in time where you can forget about the cares of the world and concentrate on healthy family living. Have a lobster bake on the back porch, pitch a tent in the yard or get the family together for kite flying or whiff le ball.

                  Car: Recommended

                  Castine is a wonderful historic town off the beaten path of Down east Maine tourist spots but within 1 hr drive of Camden and Bar Harbour. Summer weather is beautiful and clear with a constant cool breeze (no need for air conditioning). The Blue Hill peninsula offers many attractions including nature hikes, sailing, restaurants, antique shopping and beautiful drives. Castine has a great golf course and tennis courts open to the public, as well as waterfront and historic dining. Because of its location at the end of a peninsula, it is a tranquil and relaxing town with little traffic, yet easily accessible to all that Downcast Maine has to offer.
