This immaculately renovated home was built in the 1850's and is situated on a private 3-acre hilltop setting. This home has the conveniences of a year-round home including a fully-stocked kitchen—even a Vitamix for morning smoothies.
The downstairs has a full eat-in kitchen and a sitting area with two large chairs, a favorite spot in the house. The dining room has a coffee bar and even a daybed to take full advantage of the sun. Towards the middle of the house you'll find a bathroom with an enclosed, stacking washer/dryer and a standing shower. Walk past the bathroom and you'll find yourself standing in the large living room, which is well–provisioned for entertainment; numerous board games & a 32" TV + movies. With an Apple TV you can stream your favorite programming. From the hallway you might also choose to walk outside the sliding glass doors to enjoy some time on the deck. On the side deck we have a large picnic table, a Weber gas grill and a hammock. I nearly forgot to mention the fire pit, a staple for s'more creation!
Upstairs, the home has 3 bedrooms that will comfortably sleep 6 people. The largest bedroom features 3 twin beds and children's toys (a dollhouse with accessories and a few Playmobil toys for younger kids). Enjoy the soaking tub after a long day at the beach.
This island home is conveniently located in the middle of the island, between both ferries, beaches, library, island grocery, and a half-mile to the pool and Recreation Center. The boatyard is a 10-minute downhill walk through a forest-covered footpath. Bikes are available to explore this 4-mile-long island and its many beaches.
The Islander Ferry makes regular trips to Yarmouth while the Casco Bay Lines ferry travels to Portland so you can explore its many shops and restaurants in the Old Port. Groceries can be purchased at Doughty's Market on the island or by placing an order with area markets, including Whole Foods, to be delivered to the island daily via the Casco Bay Lines ferry. Fresh seafood is also available on the island.
BONUS: This house includes use of our island car, a Saab wagon. This car has a MANUAL transmission.+ More
