Perfect retreat from this busy world. 1850's peaceful house on 5 acres with oceanfront and a barn.
Love cappuccinos?... Green Tree Coffee Roasters, featured in the NY Times, is across the street. Nothing can compare to waking up downwind on a roasting day. Dots bakery and gourmet sandwich shop is a couple doors down - perfect for a picnic lunch, quiche breakfast or a perfect wine. Walk down the property with stair access to the ocean (0.5m) and then walk down the rock beach to Lincolnville Beach - my kids favorite. Or just relax in the Adirondack chairs and watch the boats. Walking distance to the Islesboro ferry - take a day trip to this beautiful island.
The kitchen has a big bay window and window seat which are perfect for relaxing. For those who love cooking, the kitchen is equipped with a professional gas stove with double oven. There is a dining room and living room as well as the library, which has a queen bed. The downstairs bathroom has a shower. The upstairs features beautiful 12" pumpkin pine boards. The upstairs has two bedrooms and a full bath with a tub. In total, three bedrooms, two bath and a new queen pullout couch in the living room.
Our barn still has its rustic charm and its own unique history. Jane Wazey, a previous owner used the barn as her art studio and carved the Andre the Seal statue. The statue is located in Rockport Harbor. If you are not familiar with the story about Andre the Seal, he lived with a local family and would return every year. It is worth reading the book or watching the movie before you come visit, especially if you have young children.
