Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: Sunflower Farm is our home. Wendy & Ken love good food and wine, beautiful architecture and gardens, history, theatre, music, interesting people and worldwide travel. We're delighted to be your hosts in Maine and share the insider's secrets we have learned about the area we've called home for 4 decades. Also, Wendy is a Notary Public and thereby authorized to perform marriages by the State of Maine.

Why the Owner Chose Blue Hill, ME, USA:
Sunflower Farm is a gorgeous property bordered by a fresh water stream flowing into the Salt Pond, a 4-mile long inlet from the ocean. Sited on a shallow tidal cove framed by Carleton Island, home to a nesting pair of bald eagles, osprey, blue herons, ducks and seals, it is a Maine paradise. Ancient Abenaki tribes once used this land as their summer camping grounds.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
You'll appreciate use of this exclusive, private estate and the quiet beauty of natural surroundings. Sunflower Farm has 4 acres to explore, filled with gardens, squirrels, birdsong, and several separate outdoor seating areas featuring comfortable Adirondack chairs in sun or shade. Enjoy a good book or breathe in the fresh air and beautiful water views. You may use our kayaks (2 singles or a double) to explore the Salt Pond. Use our private pool to swim and sunbathe or get refreshed in the bubbling stream.
