With a meadow on one side and the Somes-Meynell Wildlife Sanctuary on the other, this custom-built Shingle Style home, with an adjacent guest house, is situated within a beautiful landscape and located in the desirable village of Somesville, near the center of Mount Desert Island.
The gracious floor plan of the main residence allows for comfortable living and is well-suited to entertaining. Entering the home, you are welcomed into a large kitchen and family room, with views of the expansive property, and access to a private office. The kitchen has a gas stove, a large double sink, and ample storage in custom height cabinetry. Off the kitchen is the laundry and a powder room. The first floor also boasts a spacious living room with a cathedral ceiling, built-in bookcases and cabinetry, and a wood stove. With wide-board pine floors throughout, and a second-floor book loft that doubles as an office area, this room offers endless opportunities. French doors provide access to a brick terrace facing the woods and a lovely English rock garden.
Accessed from both the living room and family room, the centrally-located dining room opens onto a lovely deck for outdoor living.
Separated from the first floor living spaces by a private office or sitting room, the primary suite includes walk-in closet, a full bath with jacuzzi tub, and a comfortable bedroom with high ceilings and broad windows overlooking the landscape.
Ascending the graceful staircase, the upper floor has a second bedroom with abundant closet space, and a private bath with a tub/shower. Two additional bedrooms on this floor share a full bathroom and a powder room. The walk-out basement, easily accessed from the main level, has additional storage, a heated 2-car garage, and a large space ideally suited for an art studio, office, or TV room.
Located just steps away from the primary residence, the 2-bedroom guest house features a full kitchen, loft/office area, 3 full baths, lower-level bedrooms, an office space or den, and a laundry room. The guest house also includes a large spa room, with an Endless Pool and space for additional equipment.
Both residences are serviced by a generator, and potential membership to the Somesville Landing Corp., with its dock in Somesville Harbor, is available.
