Property description

'A Beautiful Cottage on a Ledge topped with Blueberries'


Wireless Internet, DirecTv (basic), free calls in the US...

**see rates, fees and notes.

Thank you for viewing 'Blueberry Ledge' on the bold ledge frontage of Taunton Bay in Hancock, just 25 minutes to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Enjoy privacy and comfort in our quiet cottage. We have put a lot of special care into this cottage. We hope you will come and enjoy the peaceful surroundings as much as we do. Our 2500 sq. ft, three-bedroom cottage sleeps four adults comfortably or up to six people when using the loft bedroom. The main floor includes a large master bedroom with queen bed and full private bath. There is a nice guestroom with a queen bed; another full bathroom;large foyer, full kitchen, dining area, and living room with a granite fireplace. The cottage has cathedral, native cedar ceilings, floors are tile and hardwood (carpet in bedrooms..preference is no shoes on wood or carpeted floors). The loft is complete with 2 twin beds and a cozy, tranquil space perfect for reading or relaxing, overlooking the living room and bay.


The walk-out basement boasts full views of the bay. Along with the view you will enjoy board games, cards, puzzles, books, or peaceful moments awaiting the changing of the tide every 6 hours, which offers a new and exciting view every day. Each room is complete with large windows and sliding glass doors opening onto a large, private deck overlooking the bay.

The home is located on a private lot offering 600 feet of rugged, bold, ledge frontage where the home sits on a point high above the shore 75 feet from water's edge. A heads up for parents with small children: although the ledge frontage is beautiful, in places it is very steep and drops dramatically into the bay. We do not have a beach.

Start your days picking wild blueberries, August and September only, for your very own muffins, cereal or pancakes. Just a quick jaunt off from the deck will land you in the blueberry bushes atop the bold ledge. Spend your days exploring Maine's coastal towns or visit Mount Desert Island with its many villages and Acadia National Park. Opportunities are endless, including whale watch trips, boat rentals, fishing, swimming, kayaking, shopping, tennis or make use of the many hiking trails. Ellsworth is only seven minutes away, where you will find a variety of shops and stores. However, country stores are nearby for all your basic needs. Our cottage is the perfect center point to begin your exploring regardless of your destination. We are approximately 30 minutes away from Bangor, Blue Hill, Bucksport, Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, Milbridge or Cherryfield.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Bill is a small business owner and has always shown an interest in Maine's beautiful waterfront properties. We thought building rental cottages would not only be a good investment but they would allow us to enjoy them as well. We have built two cottages since 2004 and have met wonderful people from all over. This is a great way to invest but also enjoy along the way.

Why the Owner Chose Hancock, ME, USA:
Bill and I love this property with the bold ledge surrounding the bay. We purchased this parcel of land overlooking Taunton Bay after much thought about creating a design for our cottage which would allow the natural surroundings to remain. The design allowed the ledge to remain unscathed; we built around it. The basement boasts the cool, grey ledge and is a great addition to the room
