About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Sitting atop a 50' granite slope that dips into the ocean and comfortably nestled in a lush Spruce forest, 'Connemara' is a spacious yet cozy multi-level home, perfect for vacationing families and friends, and an inspirational hideaway for artists, musicians, and writers.

Situated on the South end of Spruce Head Island, its ocean-side deck is the perfect spot to take in the natural beauty of the scenic Maine coastline, while schooners and lobster boats pass along Mussel Ridge Channel.

Inside, the open two-story living space with a cathedral ceiling includes a dining room overlooking the living room, with enhancements including a grand piano, a wood burning fireplace, eclectic décor, and a two-story wall of glass, overlooking the Atlantic.

Recently renovated, the house features a galley-style kitchen with views of the Spruce forest, four bedrooms (each with an ocean view and a king or queen-sized bed), two full bathrooms, a laundry and a storage room.

While 'Connemara' was originally designed to be a place where one could escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and continues to offer the peacefulness of an island retreat, it now has phone, wireless internet services and television.
