Property description

At the end of a gated, quarter mile long driveway is our 1 and 1/2 story log home. Perched on the side of Levinseller mountain, this house faces due south and features a 4 season sun room that transitions to a covered wrap around porch. On top of the house, is an 8X8 tower that has windows on all 4 sides. For those not afraid of heights, you can step out on to a 4X8 deck and sit down to enjoy a view of the back side of the Camden hills, a sliver of Penobscot Bay, part of Lake Megunticook, Ragged Mtn, Hatchet Mtn, Moody Mtn, and our own Levinsellor pond. Which, by the way, is directly across the street from our driveway. It is clean and perfect for a dip on a hot summer day. At night, the tower is the perfect place to check out the stars.
When you enter the house, you step into the kitchen, which is fully equipped. Cooking is by gas stove. The washer and dryer are tucked into a pocket in the kitchen. The kitchen and dining room are open concept. Walking through the dining room, which seats 4 comfortably, your are looking through the sun room at the view. Turning the corner, you enter either the sunroom or the living room and see the cathedral ceiling and loft. There is satellite TV and a Blu-ray DVD player for entertainment (bring your own DVD's), and a Bose Cinemate system for enhanced sound. We also have Internet service and there is excellent cellphone reception. Off the living room is the master bedroom which features a queen size bed with quality linens, a ceiling fan, and private access to the 3/4 bath. There is also access to the bathroom from the kitchen. The second floor also has a 3/4 bathroom. The second bedroom upstairs also has a queen size bed with quality linens and a cozy sitting area that has a nice view of our perennial flower gardens. Off our wrap around porch,at the edge of the forest and our flower gardens, is our sundeck. You can sit with your first cup of coffee in the morning and soak in the view while enjoying the variety of birds visiting our multiple feeders. The hummingbirds are always enjoyable to watch at our feeders. You may see hawks or an eagle circling the pond. At night or in the morning, you will hear the loons calling. If you listen very carefully, you will also hear loons calling from a neighboring pond.
Camden, which is 12 minutes away from the house, is truly unique among Maine coastal towns in that the 'mountains meet the sea'. Mount Battie looms over the harbor and town and the base is a short walk from downtown. At the top, the view is one of coastal Maine's most stunning. There is a stone tower there that you can climb that gives a 360 degree view.
Downtown Camden has been consistently ranked as one of the most picturesque on the coast of Maine. A variety of shops to wander through, a picture perfect harbor that is homeport to several large Schooners that offer 2 hour excursions or up to 10 days. Camden library's amphitheater is a national historic landmark and across the street is a grassy hill overlooking the harbor.
The Camden Hills offer miles of hiking and biking and there are numerous lakes and ponds for kayaking or boating.
At the end of the day, you can return to the house and sit out on the porch, enjoy the light breeze, and relax while you plan your next day. It is perfect.
