Punch Bowl has been enjoyed by one family for nearly one hundred years. This unusual find located on a private peninsula includes 178± acres with 7,580' of shorefront, and offers an incredible sanctuary of coastal Maine treasures. Perfect as a private family compound in a pristine, naturally wooded setting.

Named for the protected cove it overlooks, Punch Bowl is located on The Reach in Sedgwick, an area coveted by cruising yachts and lobstermen. The gracious shingle cottage faces west, so gorgeous sunsets accompany dinner most nights; expansive decks provide many areas from which to watch the eagles, ospreys, seals, and traveling boats plying the water. The living, dining and kitchen areas are open, with their central focus the huge rough granite fireplace in the living area. There are five bedrooms with an atria on the second floor providing brightness and light on the open landing. Fascinating architectural details are found throughout, from patterned wood floors, a soaring window on the stair, and arched overhangs. It is a delight within.

The two-story waters’ edge Boathouse serves as a well-used workshop with the best view ever! Used originally for launching and storing small family boats, the first floor is water accessible at high tide. A granite pier base remains from a former dock accessing deep water moorings within the Punch Bowl Cove, with a fine sandy beach on the cove providing the perfect spot for swimming and sunning. 

A waters’ edge Playhouse hosts ping pong games and family shoreside lobster feeds, with clever built-in tables that provide serving areas and fold up for storage. Huge arched windows easily slide into the walls, fully opening the cabin to fresh sea breezes and views.

Last but not least, there is a large waters‘ edge boat barn; this dirt floor shelter provides a large winter boat storage area.  

168± acres of the property are protected from development as ‘Forever Wild’, privately conserved and not available for public use. In addition to the main house site, there are two additional waterfront areas where an owner could build two independent houses or sell separately.

This ‘one of kind’ kingdom property offers privacy, solitude, and a wealth of everything people come to Maine for...
