The 10,918-square-foot waterfront home on a parcel of 6.03 acres is now available for $25 million. If it’s privacy and luxury you crave, this estate offers plenty of both. But it’s where the home sits that’s truly unparalleled.
From the pristine woods and mossy glades to the 650 feet of pink granite ledges and views of Seal Harbor coast, the property is extraordinary.
“The location is certainly the most unique aspect of this property,” says Mia Thompson, owner and president of The Knowles Company, who works alongside co-listing agents Lili Pew and Torie Hallock. “It has bold shore frontage and a vast view out to the ocean off Mount Desert.”
The property features “dramatic granite outcrops, lush native gardens, towering evergreens, as well as sun-splashed lawns,” the listing states.
“It’s a really nice-size property,” says Thompson. “There are only a few homes that are over 2 to 3 acres. When you get a property of this size that’s over 6 acres, it’s a rare find.”
Built in 1991, the 10-bedroom home features exquisite woodwork and architectural details evoking the Gilded Age.
“It has so many incredible details,” says Thompson. “The front hall is so open with detailed woodworking and a beautiful winding staircase. The feel of the home from the back halls to the stairways is reminiscent of a home that was built in the early 1900s. They did a wonderful job incorporating older styles with new construction.”
The enormous foyer is certain to impress anyone who steps inside with its wood paneling and soaring ceiling. The living area has exposed beams and French doors that open to a deck.
There are a total of five fireplaces to cozy up next to during the winter months, including one in the primary suite. There are also a number of balconies to enjoy morning coffee or a nightcap.
“I hope someone buys the property who not only loves the location, beauty, and integrity of the area, but also Mount Desert, and wants to be a part of the community here,” the agent says. “I envision it would be a second or third home for someone who would be looking for privacy and quality of detail. The privacy, view, and gardens are spectacular. That combination allows people to get away and enjoy the privacy that the home affords.”
