A family compound on an island off the coast of Maine offering a wonderful shingle cottage, captivating mountain and ocean views, privacy, solitude, a touch of magic and life at your very own pace, known as “Faraway”.Faraway was commissioned in 1901 during the Golden Era of Mount Desert. This classic, shingle-style cottage designed with an atmosphere of understated elegance and timeless craftsmanship offers many large rooms and decks for entertaining. This gracious country home was designed as many of the original summer cottages were, for families and their guests to entertain with emphasis on enjoying the outdoors and the views. The living room, dining room, entry foyer, and library all have large granite fireplaces, as do many of the seven bedrooms. The large, floor-to-ceiling living room fireplace was made of native pink granite boulders with a long granite mantel. Ceilings are high and windows are wide to take advantage of the wonderful views. Recently extensively updated and renovated, Faraway offers the full complement of utilities and services, powered by ‘off the grid’ utilities.
