Situated on the shores of Somes Sound, overlooking Acadia National Park, this beautiful but discreet property was built as a summer 'cottage' for a wealthy Philadelphia family in the early 1920s. Well-cared for and modernized over the years, the house was inspired by the traditional architecture of the Normandy region in France and is surrounded by charming gardens and peaceful seating areas. With more than 500 feet of ocean frontage, the property has beautiful views of Somes Sound, Acadia National Park, and the mountains beyond. Inside, an effort has been made to maintain an historic 'summer cottage' atmosphere, with handmade imported French tile, cypress wood details, and hand-wrought iron fittings in ten fireplaces. Outside, you will find a private pier with three private moorings, lighted pathways to the shore, and three acres of lawns and gardens, including a reflecting pool and a water wheel fed by a brook on the eastern edge of the property. There is an integrated security, panic and fire alarm system with multiple redundant monitoring connections. A separate living area over the garage is ideal for live-in staff. This enchanting summer 'cottage' provides an ideal family base for exploring Acadia National Park, and offers beautiful entertaining spaces overlooking the ocean.
