About the Property
House with 5 Bedrooms + two bedroom carriage house, plus cottage!
Perched on a hill a few minutes walk from the historic costal village of Bayside, the main house offers 300 feet of private shore frontage. From every room of the house views of the majestic Penobscot Bay stretch out before you.
The main house, an arts and crafts turn of the century home, has been left untouched, only restored and updated by the same family. On the second floor it features 5 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a large family cinema room (with a queen sized sofa bed) and a open landing that doubles as a play area under vaulted cathedral like beamed ceilings. The master bedroom features a working fireplace and a generous bathroom - with a shower and separate tub overlooking the sea. Each bedroom also comes with high quality linens and 2 beautifully renovated shared bathrooms The cinema room comes equipped with apple tv, Direct TV, Netflicks and VHS/DVD with a large array of movies to keep everyone entertained.
On the ground floor there is an open plan kitchen with a large double oven/stove, communal table, dishwasher and an incredible modified ice box that is original to the house and functions now as a very large fridge . There are plates and cutlery for over 20 guests along with every form of cooking utensil. It is a chef’s dream. Adjoining the kitchen is a separate bar/wash area with a large commercial coffee grinder and microwave. The adjacent dinning room is astounding with a large arts and crafts table that seats 18 overlooking the porch and sea with a working fireplace. The living room comes off this, with comfortable leather club chairs and sofas around another large fireplace. There is also a fully equipped home office with printer and desk. There is high speed internet throughout the house. Each of all these rooms leads to a wrap around covered porch that beautifully frames the ocean view complete with white wicker furniture that seats 20 along with a wooden picnic table perfect for outdoor dinning. In the basement there is a full laundry room with washer and dryer. There is also an abundant supply of fireplace logs.
Surrounding the house are lush manicured gardens and lawns complete with an open fire pit. The front lawn comes with a full turning circle and multiple parking spaces. The front gate is made by a local artist in the Adirondack camp style and the garden is filled with local renowned sculptor James Wolfe’s work.
To the left of the house is a separate guest carriage house with a self contained apartment above it. There are 2 double bedrooms, living room, a self contained kitchen and bathroom complete with a shower/bathtub. This is perfect for a small family or friends wishing to join in on a holiday but also allowing them to have their own privacy. There is an additional fee of $500 per week of the use of the 2-bedroom Carriage House.
There is a private walkway and stairs down to the beach from the bottom of the garden where you can enjoy the private beach.
ALSO AVAILABLE: Two bedroom cottage across the road--a darling arts and crafts home on an acre of land, built in 1899! Please see VRBO listing https://www.vrbo.com/661451 (additional fee as per the listing)

Why the Owner Chose Northport, ME, USA:
For three generations our family has been summering in Bayside. My cousin lives up the road and my sister one street over. It really is a magical place where families can all come together.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will feel as if you have traveled back in time. Bayside has no stoplights or stop signs. No commercial development. You can let your kids run in the main village park without worry - and on hot summer days, jump off the quaint, blue-painted pier into the refreshing Atlantic Ocean. Take a walk down Shore Road, with its tree canopy so thick in places that it blocks out the sun, and feel the stresses of everyday life melt away.
