Property description

This historical 1850 Italianate villa has been lovingly restored to its original grander with all the modern conveniences you expect. Large living room with an antique piano and beautiful bay window overlooks the waterfront and bridge. Large library to cuddle up with a good book or watch a movie. New gourmet kitchen with stainless appliances, soapstone counter tops, double ovens, large cook top, microwave, and even a wine cooler . Upstairs are three large bedrooms with queen beds and water views. Outside are beautiful gardens, Italian fountain and gas BBQ grill.
Bucksport is a charming New England town that overlooks Bucksport Harbor with views of the Penobscot Narrows Bridge, Observatory and historical Fort Knox. For boaters, the marina offers transient docking, moorings and anchoring with access to one of the finest cursing grounds on the east coast. The house is located a block off Main Street within walking distance to shops, great restaurants, Alamo Movie Theater, Museum, even an old fashioned Ice Cream shop and the library is right next door to the house, no library card needed. Bucksport also has a beautiful river walk path along the Penobscot River. A great place to unwind and watch the sun set while you finish your ice cream cone.
Bucksport is considered the “Center of the Universe” as we are within 30 minutes to Belfast, Blue Hill and Bangor and about a hour to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Acadia National Park is one of the most visited parks on the east coast and offers a variety of activities to include, hiking, biking, mountain climbing, horseback riding, kayaking and sand beaches. Cadillac Mountain is also the site of the first sunrise of the United States.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My husband and I bought this house as our retirement home and we have lovingly renovated it and furnished it with antiques. We hope that you will love it and respect it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Ellsworth:
My husband and I were looking for 'Cabot Cove' from :Murder She Wrote'. Bucksport has everything that :Cabot Cove' has, except a murder. We have very wonderful, friendly people and everything you need is in walking distance.
