A magical sanctuary replete with soaring eagles, starry skies, mossy trails through native forest, and sparkling seas, this rare offering encompasses 43.4± acres of managed forest with 2700± feet of shorefront on a private point of land. The award-winning four-season home with its dramatic beach stone chimney offers an open floor plan, three bedrooms, custom finishes, skylights, and picture windows with breathtaking views of the fabled Merchant's Row archipelago. Organic gardens and fruit trees surround the house and the adjacent wood-fired sauna. The detached two-car garage includes a heated workshop on the first floor and an attractive, spacious apartment above.
A private retreat in a pristine setting, the property is conveniently located within walking distance of the picturesque fishing village of Stonington. The waterfront is some of the most beautiful along the coast, with broad pink granite ledges, sand beaches, and tidal pools that offer endless opportunities for exploration, bonfires on the beach, launching boats, and watching Maine's windjammer fleet sailing through these world-renowned cruising grounds. Bold shorefront faces south and east with sweeping views of the islands, mountains of Acadia National Park, and open ocean. Pocket beaches extend well into protected Webb Cove, which also offers the potential for a deepwater dock and float.
