Located at the end of a private drive almost at the end of the Lower Crockett River Road, the property looks to the southwest over the entrance to Leadbetter Narrows, Leadbetter Island, Dogfish Island and the many ledges forming the outer entrance to Penobscot Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The setting is a peaceful open meadow edged with spruce that rolls gently to the bold granite shore. There are 5.8 acres with approximately 800 feet of shorefront, several coves and locations for a deep-water dock and float. Nestled into the side of the southern slope are two recently built well-designed and sited structures; the main house and the barn. The main house is a three bedroom, two and a half bath home with a heated daylight basement that houses the utilities and a pottery studio. The house is light and airy and built to the highest standards with attractive top quality materials and components – post and beam first floor with lovely detail, soapstone kitchen counters, and in-floor radiant heat. The first-floor master is an asset and the second floor has two charming bedrooms, a full bath, a hidden loft with built-ins. There is a covered and open porch on three sides on the first floor and the ocean views from all the rooms are expansive.

The barn design is well conceived with an open unfinished second floor of 650± square feet and an open post and beam first floor with a central open bay. The entire first floor is approximately 1400 square feet. There are two garage doors facing south and one large door facing east providing for easy storage of a good size boat.

The buildings look down over a well-tended strawberry garden surrounded by newly planted fruit trees. The power is an off-the-grid system with two large solar arrays, propane generator coupled to battery storage with an inverter to provide 110 house current. There is a drilled well and in-ground septic system designed for four bedrooms allowing for expansion on the second floor of the barn.
