Manager info

Year Purchased: 1978

About: Retired teacher and business owner, seniors,Travelers and sailors. Large extended family, children and grand-children. Born in Maine, schooled in Bangor to college level, now living in Bangor/Brewer area.

Why Castine, ME, USA:
Built in 1973, original owner/builders from Cape Cod were all about details. House was positioned facing slightly South, to afford spectacular sunsets all across front windows, all year long. Cathedral ceilings and well insulated, orig. owners incorporated materials brought back from their world travels into the home. Cypress plank wall from Fl, brick hearth from Boston bldg.smokestack, copper lanterns driftwood memorabilia, paintings and carvings, etc. Present owners have included numerous photos and paintings to add to the decor, as well as telescopes and hi-power binocs to enhance the views. Builders of this house were all about details, as evidenced by facing the home slightly South to gain a view of the incredible sunsets all year long, across the front windows. Originally electric heated and well insulated, now has new System2000 oil hot-water baseboard throughout.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peace and quiet with exceptional views across Wadsworth Cove and Penobscot Bay, Islesboro Island and Camden Hills in background. Flowering trees and shrubs, wild roses, geese , sea ducks, and deer families grazing on the lawns of a nearby estate. Unique public beach at end of road, safe swimming/boating/ beach-combing.
