Seaside, quietly tucked off a country lane, overlooks the famed Eggemoggin Reach and Center Harbor, with an unending procession of lobstermen, yachts and historic schooners; a very peaceful setting offset by the dramatic, yet equally serene views. Throughout the residence antique rough-hewn timbers frame the rooms, and there are many other attractive details, including adobe tile floors, a vaulted ceiling in the sunroom, and hand painted Delft tiles. Most rooms in the five-bedroom home overlook the Reach, with its compelling views. There are colorful perennial shrubs and flowers, with roses and spruce, birch and apple trees throughout the rolling meadow. A boathouse at water's edge adds charm and makes wonderful retreat or picnic spot. From the elevated location of the residence, most of the property's 9.2± acres roll toward the water, bounded by tall stands of conifer and deciduous trees that provide protection and privacy. This would be perfect for a large family or owner desiring room for guests.
Brooklin's pastoral surroundings and quiet community offer a very desirable quality of life. Incorporated as a town in 1849, Brooklin was originally a small fishing village where residents also earned a living by farming and trading. Today Brooklin is a quiet year-round coastal community with a long-standing summer population. Center Harbor, the renowned Brooklin Boat Yard, and Wooden Boat magazine and its associated boat school are of special interest. Excellent restaurants, a variety of shops, numerous musical and theatrical groups, and various recreational opportunities can also be found on the Blue Hill Peninsula. Bangor and its international airport are within an hour’s drive, and additional air service is available at Bar Harbor Airport, 45 minutes away.
