This lovingly restored and expanded Maine cottage, situated on eight+ acres on the northeast shoulder of Islesboro, boasts a spectacular view across East Penobscot Bay. The house is a perfect island getaway--and because it's fully winterized, it's a charming year-round home.

There is an outdoor porch overlooking the bay. An enclosed potager garden is tucked behind the house, yielding herbs and vegetables. There is a master bedroom, two cozy bedrooms with wonderful views of the water, and a bunkroom with four built-in bunkbeds, ideal for children of any age. There are two bathrooms. There is an all-glass mudroom/entry foyer, and a washer/dryer. High-speed (1GB) internet. Pripet Woods Lane is a private road with almost no traffic. The beach is perfect for strolling, beach-combing, wading, and harvesting clams and mussels. A stone patio and fire pit on the bluff above the 120'-long seawall overlook the bay. Lovely flat rocks on Islesboro Island Trust property around the corner of the cove are a natural picnic spot.Boaters will love this home. Castine Harbor is 12 minutes from the mooring by motorboat and 30 minutes by kayak. Belfast is 20 minutes, Deer Isle is 30, and an hour away through Eggemoggin Reach lies Southwest Harbor and Mt. Desert Island. This home has one of the very few beaches suitable for launching boats, an ideal spot for sailors and motorboaters. You can paddle out to buy fresh lobster as local fisherman haul their catch from the several pots in the cove.The house is mirrored by a more recently constructed boathouse/workshop equipped with hoists to lift four kayaks and a canoe or small sailboat up to a high ceiling. The builder confirmed the boathouse could be converted to a Tiny House with a loft.
