Property Description

A waterfront, vacation home (or year around) built in 2003 on a wooded, secluded, peaceful double lot of 12.4 acres on a ciruclar private road. Four miles from the fishing village of Milbridge, Maine, and a half mile from McClelland Park, with its rugged shoreline and bold ocean view, this property has 445 feet of shoreline at the head of Pigeon Hill Bay and abuts a 1000 acre national wildlife refuge.

The property contains three buildings (main house, guest house, studio), all powered by a 2000 watt grid-connected solar electric system with battery back-up and energy buy-back agreement with the power company. The main house and guest house share a private well and septic system. To blend with the woods and granite outcroppings, we landscaped for privacy and naturalness -- gravel paths, organic raised-bed garden, and wild blueberries instead of lawn.

All three buildings were impccably constructed in an open, modern design with cathedral ceilings. The main house (s.f. 1009) features a loft, open on three sides, granite counter tops (in the kitchen, the bath, a built-in desk, and a custom built dining table), built-in benches with storage underneath, and a satellite dish for high-speed internet access and television.

The guest house (s.f. 529) is a complete house, with kitchen, bath and living. Both houses are equipped with washing machines, are heated by propane stoves, and are surrounded by 4-foot cedar decks. The studio (s.f. 169) is heated with a wood stove.
