Property description

Welcome to Dockside. This comfortable and spacious house in Southwest Harbor, Maine, is located in a pleasant and shady residential neighborhood, and overlooks one of the most gorgeous harbors in the area. In this setting on the harbor, you can enjoy your own little section of rocky beach right on the working waterfront. There are a variety of restaurants in town, a pleasant ten- minute walk away, or Beal's Lobster Pier at the other end of Clark Point Road, also within walking distance. Or pick out your own lobster at Southwest Lobster, right next door, and enjoy a private dinner at home.
Southwest Harbor is a friendly year-round town that offers conveniences such as a library, banks, post office, grocery stores and medical clinics, as well as art galleries and gift shops, bike rentals, restaurants and coffee shops, in a quieter setting that avoids the crowds and noise of Bar Harbor, which is a 20-minute drive away. Within a few miles drive in either direction from the house, there are beautiful hiking trails in Acadia National Park, some along the ocean, or a pond, others up mountains offering great views. You can walk right from the house through quiet neighborhood streets to a causeway over a millpond, with views out to the ocean.
On the main level of the house, facing the harbor, there is a living room with a fireplace, and a well-equipped kitchen with dining table. At the back of the house is a large sitting room with comfortable couches, cable television and a fireplace. On the same level are a queen bedroom, and a bathroom with shower stall.
A large deck facing the harbor spans the width of the house, and offers comfortable outdoor seating and a small table that seats 4.
Upstairs there is a spacious master bedroom with king bed and large windows overlooking the harbor, a second bedroom with two twin beds, and a bathroom with a bathtub/shower unit. A washer and coin-op dryer are located in the daylight basement.
In 2015 we replaced the dishwasher, refrigerator, range, barbecue grill, clothes washer and dryer.
The parking area in front of the house is shared with the tenants of the building in the rear of the property.
The property overlooks the harbor facing south and enjoys beautiful breezes off the water.
