Originally an 1895 cottage, this house was completely rebuilt in 1992 by an architect couple for their own year-round living. They built room additions, a deck and porches with particular attention to water views with a pleasing symmetry such as an award-winning architect can envision. This three bedroom, two bath house has radiant heat, supplied by a propane boiler. An automatic whole house generator ensures comfortable year round living. The entrance mudroom has a granite tile floor. The living room, dining room, and kitchen are open to each other with wood floors throughout the house. A deck connecting symmetrical porches wraps around the front of the first floor common areas. A wood stove with soapstone exterior provides additional warmth to the central living area. The den is easily converted to a first floor bedroom with pocket doors, built-in drawers, a full bath, and its own door to the covered porch on the water side. On the other side, the dining area has a door to a matching covered porch for outdoor dining overlooking the water. The two upstairs bedroom ceilings are open to the eaves. One bedroom has upper storage with a moveable ladder for access. The property is sited on 2.4 acres with 340 feet of waterfront on Southeast Harbor in Deer Isle. It is ideally suited for a gardener with a greenhouse, perennial gardens, raised beds, a garden shed, and a beautiful rock retaining wall with steps to the lower shorefront. The magnificent spreading canopy of a large oak tree shelters the house from the heat of the sun. Polypod Island, protected by the Island Heritage Trust, is central to the view. A separate two story studio and one bay garage stands on the site of an original barn providing additional office and sleeping space. At the shore, a stairway and the remnants of a dock could be rebuilt to provide easy access to the water for boating. Offers received until Oct 20, 2021.
