Property description

Come enjoy our year-round home located on a private road and screened with almost 2 acres of woods for privacy. The ocean side of the house has a wrap-around deck for watching the kids play while enjoying the view or putting up your feet with a good book. You can enjoy 300 feet of oceanfront that provides 'the best view on the island' and exceptional sunsets.

The kitchen is fully equipped for all your needs. Pick up lobsters and bring them home to steam in our lobster pot, or put them on the grill. The dining room table can easily seat 8. The large living room has two picture windows giving a breathtaking view of the sound. The living room is perfect for lounging, entertaining or playing the baby grand piano. A cozy den with a fireplace, also overlooking the water, is a peaceful place to play games or read. Its sliding glass doors open onto the deck. The side deck overlooks an area perfect for picnics and a safe play area. The access to our private beach is at the edge of our property. Just follow the path.

The master suite, king bed with dressing area and private bath, is on the main floor. A fully supplied laundry room and another half-bath, also on the main floor, means that for many people all of their basic living needs are on one level. Upstairs are 2 additional bedrooms, one with queen bed and one with twin beds. The second floor also has a full bath and sitting area featuring a full bed in the sleeping nook and ample room for a rainy day play area.

Pet policy: No cats, dogs with owner's prior approval.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: Our aunt and uncle built the house and we are now its caretakers. Our family loves Orrs Island for family gatherings and time together. Privacy and space for total relaxation and a family vacation spot.

Why the Owner Chose Orr's Island, Harpswell, ME, USA:
We came for our first vacation over 25 years ago and cannot imagine our lives without watching the lobstermen tend their traps each day and the incredible sunsets in the evening.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Harpswell Sound is alive with the daily lives of lobstermen, families of waterfowl, sea otters, and sailboats. The beach is private and offers great opportunity for shelling, sea glass collecting and wandering.
