Gardenwalk Crest & Dock House Spacious 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath, ocean view home. As you take the short drive through Raspberry Lane the first thing you'll realize is that it is the perfect mix of privacy and convenience. The short road curves with the harbor so you can walk right into town, or enjoy the quiet serenity of your vacation spot. Situated on a gentle rise of land, this location overlooks Port Clyde village and harbor, with views beyond the nearby islands to Muscongus Bay. Upon your arrival you can park inside the two bay garage or in one of the two off-road spots in front of the garage. The home is situated on a large sloping lot with gracious lawns and a spectacular professionally maintained flower garden. Just below the deck is the cutting garden with a winding stone walkway leading to the dock and fully renovated and furnished "fish-shack" with private wharf - perfect for entertaining, reading, painting, drawing or just watching the local lobster boat fleet bring in their catch. You will find no shortage of inspiration at this beautiful location. The garden and lawn area are ideal for setting up easels, photography, watching butterflies or seeing a great variety of birds. The water is tidal here so you will need to time your swimming adventures with the tides, however there is the nearby Drift Inn Beach for more spontaneous dips! The Port Clyde General Store is just 5 minutes away and has moorings to rent for your convenience. You enter this beautiful home through the kitchen which has a modern feel. The attractive shelving design offers immediate assurance that you have everything needed to dine in. Prepare your favorite meals, or experiment with local fare such as fresh caught Maine lobster! The kitchen has a large range with oven, a full-sized stainless refrigerator with ice maker and filtered water, a dishwasher and all the dinnerware, utensils and cookware you might need. We've thought of everything. For your convenience there is a Keurig and a standard coffee maker, a toaster and a blender on the counter. The sturdy island offers seating for 4 and is the perfect spot to gather for an intimate breakfast before starting your day. To the right of the kitchen is the half bath which has a toilet and vanity sink with mirror. In this area is also a laundry room with a washer, dryer and folding area as well as a pantry to store your food. Moving along you enter the dining/living room area. This spacious part of the house brings together two of the most important parts about vacation: great meals with friends and family at the 6 person wooden dining table, where you can talk, laugh and the conversation just flows, and the comfortable seating areas with sofa and arm chairs. It doesn't matter if you are watching a TV show, playing board/card games, are nestled up on the couch with a glass of wine, or maybe just resting on the settee with a soft throw blanket and a book, the sense of relaxation just washes over you. The large flat screen TV has basic cable, is internet ready and there is a Blu-ray player. If you prefer to be outside in the ocean air, the doors off the dining room bring you to an ocean-facing deck. Here you find a breathtaking view, lounge chairs, a patio table with 6 chairs and a Webber charcoal grill. Returning inside, you head up to the second floor where there are two king sized bedrooms both with ocean vistas. Each bedroom has L.L. Bean bedding, a closet and nightstands with lamps. Upon request, one of the king bedrooms can be converted to 2 twin beds. One of the king bedrooms also has a cable television. The third bedroom has two twin beds and a partial ocean view. It has nightstands with lamps and a large closet in the hallway. Next to the third bedroom is a full bathroom which has a toilet, beautiful vanity area with sink and mirror, a tile shower and a large soaking tub. In addition to the standard entertainment amenities, this home also has a great selection of indoor games such as Monopoly, Scrabble, Checkers, and outdoor lawn games such as Lawn Darts, Bean Bag Toss, Croquet and Ladder Ball to name a few. Area Amenities: It's a short 10-minute walk or bike ride to the village post office, ice cream store and Port Clyde General Store, which is open daily, specializing in morning coffee and pastries, corn, blueberries, native lobsters, fresh cut meats, and all grocery supplies. This is a pleasantly old and proud Maine community with its own library in Tenants Harbor, a great school, fire department, rescue ambulance and is serviced by the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.
