Why the Owner Chose Deer Isle, ME, USA:
Deer Isle and Stonington remind me of my childhood growing up on the coast of Maine in Spruce Head near Rockland. We spent three years searching for a home that was close to all of the amenities the island has to offer. Our desire is to share it with others who visit the island.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Located at the head of a tidal cove with 340 feet of frontage with the ocean as your backyard and playground, one can launch kayaks, go hiking, birdwatching or relax and get away from it all. This location is private set on 2.6 acres set back from the road. Heron Watch is an excellent location close Main Street in Stonington and is a perfect spot to launch many island activities. The home is great for couples and families with an active lifestyle or for those who wish to slow down and get away from it all. Heron Watch is handicap accessible with a wide ramp leading to a 6 inch step to the home.
