Hancock house description

Spacious house in Hancock Point summer community, right on Frenchman Bay with shared private beach, looking across to the mountains of Acadia National Park. Quiet location, yet only 20-minute drive to Ellsworth for groceries and shopping, walk to the Crocker House or drive 10 minutes to Salt Box or Chester Pike's for excellent food. Public dock, tennis courts and a library all within walking distance.

We’ve been lucky enough to spend summers here for nearly sixty years—we hope you will love it as much as we do. It’s not a modern house (although the kitchen is), it’s old and comfortable and a bit worn in places, but it’s clean, light and airy and the location is idyllic.
