About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
We completed our house in the spring of 2008. Originally designed by us for our own year round private use Orchard House has a bright airy feeling with lots of natural light so desired during summer months and yet with radiant heat throughout and almost airtight insulation it maintains a comfortable coziness for fall and winter.
The ground floor has natural slate and tile flooring, with a large entryway, two bedrooms (one a king with pullout futon and another with a queen), a full bath with tub and shower and a laundry room. The 2nd floor has bamboo flooring throughout and cathedral ceilings with huge south facing windows allowing for incredible light both in the bedroom (king) and the great room, which houses a full kitchen and living room. There’s also a smaller bedroom (twin) and full bath with an incredible walk-in natural slate shower with waterfall shower head. The eat-in kitchen is a cooks dream, ample counter space with butcher block island, complete with Bosch gas stove and convection oven (Cooking magazines provided!) With a local farmers market in Blue Hill fresh ingredients are close at hand.
The 12’x34’ deck off the great room almost doubles the summer living space and is a great place to enjoy meals outside. It overlooks a primarily pine and oak wooded area and boasts a private outside cedar walled shower. It’s just a short 900 foot walk down through the woods to the waters edge of Walkers Pond. A great place for that morning cup of coffee, where it’s possible to launch your kayak over the rocky edge.
No smoking or pets please!

About the owner: We built Orchard House with plans to live there full time year round. Our plans changed along the way and we moved out of Maine but love returning to the area to visit family and friends and just enjoy the peace and quiet of this small Maine coastal town where Sally grew up!
