About the property

3 bedroom apartment with water views in 1830 farmhouse on huge coastal property

This expansive property, preserved intact by a conservation easement in the 1980's, is on its own private peninsula. Surrounded on three sides by water, the farm sits on the shores of the Bagaduce River where it spills into a large basin with islands and innumerable coves before continuing on its way to Castine and Penobscot Bay. Crowning the property is the Fowler Bald Eagle Preserve, home to a pair of eagles for over 70 years. The nest can be seen perched dramatically at the water's edge as you paddle by in a canoe. While the old 1830's farmhouse has its architecture preserved intact, it is also updated with modern amenities, creating a home of both antique charm and complete comfort. This unique property offers the vacationer an extraordinary Maine adventure as well as a place to just kickback and soak up the serenity and natural beauty of the Maine coastal waters. The apartment is on the second floor with a master bedroom with a queen size bed and adjoining full bath. Sharing the bath is a double room leading to the open kitchen and sitting room with gorgeous water view. All rooms have lovely views of the surrounding fields and woods, some having water views.

The house is furnished with antiques and beautifully sanded old floors. The kitchen has new appliances and granite counters. The apartment comes furnished with cotton sheets, duvets, towels and other amenities, such as a seasonal washer/dryer, microwave, DVD, oyster shucker and lobster pot. There is a picnic table and a granite patio with a sweeping view over the fields down to the water.

Located on the Brooksville peninsula, the farm is between historic Blue Hill and Deer Isle. It is surrounded by other small farms, local restaurants, bakery, blueberry and vegetable stands. You can take numerous scenic drives along the water, or do walking tours and visit the various beach areas. It is a perfect base from which to explore the great Maine outdoors with its sailing, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, and fishing. Then again, you may simply want to indulge in more leisurely activities, like dining out on the great seafood and local produce, or visiting the antique stores, the galleries showing local artists, and the many local arts and crafts.

Situated in mid coast Maine and set on 162 secluded acres, the farm provides its own wealth of activities as well as offering a base from which to explore the surrounding area. There are the historic towns of Blue Hill, South Brooksville, Deer Isle and Stonington, all must sees. There are the many scenic drives along the coast taking you in and out of innumerable coves and blueberry fields. There are all the farmers markets richly supplied by the local farms with their bounty of local produce, baked goods, cheeses, meats, eggs and poultry. There are the many local galleries showing off Maine artists and the many antique stores. Like the farm with its own nature preserve for the Bald Eagle, the area has also the Holbrook Island Sanctuary on Cape Rosier, offering a marvelous walk through its preserve. If you go, stop at the wide pebble beach on Cape Rosier and take the scenic loop drive with its spectacular views. Stop also at 'The Good Life Center,' the legacy of Helen and Scott Nearing, early pioneers of back to the land and organic farming. Right next door is the Eliot Coleman 'Four Season Farm', one of the finest organic farms in the area. The area overflows with interest and activity in food, nature, water and wildlife.
