Property description

Listed for the first time, our recently built home sits on one of the most beautiful locations on the island. The house has an open floor plan facing south and west. Located in the Village of Sunset, every room has a water view across Southwest Harbor to Sheephead Island and beyond to North Haven, Vinalhaven, Penobscot Bay, Eagle Island, and the Camden Hills. There is easy access for kayaking or hiking, with a remarkable island-to-island walk to Sheephead out your front door. Built to thoughtful green standards, there is solar hot water and solar electricity, tied to the grid with a generator backup.

More suitable for adults than children, there is custom cabinetry throughout, a grand piano, designer lighting, and a gourmet kitchen. The TV is on a lift. A woodwaiter delivers firewood from below. The sound system is excellent. There are two bedrooms with elegant bathrooms and a half-bath on the first floor with a glass door to the private outdoor shower, which faces the cutting gardens.

Outdoors, there are front and back decks for changing weather and the time of day. Beautiful landscaping with cutting gardens, granite walls, and lawns to the water. There is a small parking area nearby where people come for birding and dog walking out to the islands and where a part-time lobsterman moors his boat, happy to sell you lobsters most evenings.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We have had a cottage on the island for 35 years. When we retired, we built this year around home and now live on Deer Isle in all seasons. We still spend summers at our cottage, on the other side of the island. We are glad to have others enjoy this home but prefer to not have children or pets. Rentals are limited to two or more weeks.

Why the Owner Chose Sunset, Deer Isle, ME, USA:
We lived in Concord, Massachusetts, for 40 years and were accustomed to a town with a sense of place, an important history, and an appreciation for good music, the arts, and the town itself. This also describes Deer Isle where, in addition, there are people of diverse backgrounds and who enrich each others' life experience. Folks of wealth or notoriety blend with islanders in the Maine way. We decided long ago to live here when we could and, when we saw it, we knew immediately that this location was ideal. Spectacularly located, it is convenient to the towns, island activities, and the water.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The ocean rolls, and sometimes roars, on the shore by the house. Facing west, the sunsets are glorious, the summer breezes come most afternoons, and the occasional summer storms are dramatic over Penobscot Bay. From the deck we regularly see eagles, osprey, heron, and shorebirds nearby and lobsterboats and schooners in the distance. We have met wonderful people who come to the end of the road to see what we are privileged to see every day. Since the house, lawns, and gardens are oriented to the south, away from the road, we are entirely private unless we choose not to be.
