Situated steps from the Bagaduce River and 5.5 miles upriver from the charming Castine and picturesque Penobscot Bay, this residence occupies over 10 acres of woodlands and fields, and boasts 600 ft of waterfront along Johnson Point Narrows. It offers a plethora of wildlife including harbor seals basking on nearby granite ledges, migrating waterfowl, wading birds, and even nesting bald eagles on a nearby island.
In 1980, the original log home underwent a loving restoration, followed by a contemporary addition in 1998 that expanded the living, kitchen, and dining areas, creating an open-concept layout. The updated 4,600-sf main residence features radiant-heated flooring, charming vaulted and wood-beamed ceilings, and skylight windows throughout. A galley-style gourmet kitchen offers Sub-Zero and Viking appliances, granite countertops, custom cherry wood cabinetry, and an adjacent breakfast nook. Just off the kitchen is a sunken living room complete with a fully-equipped wet bar, a stone-surround fireplace, walls of windows, and walk-out access to the patio. Also located on the main level are a guest bedroom and an office with scenic views of the river and grounds.
The upper-level primary suite features a sitting area, spacious walk-in closet, private balcony, and a large primary bath with dual sinks and a soaking tub. An additional, upper-level guest bedroom resembling a log cabin features wood paneling, a vaulted ceiling with a skylight, and a full bath just steps away. Additional amenities include a spacious, finished basement offering the perfect place to relax, entertain, and workout, and an attached, 2-car garage offering storage and convenience. A separate 380-sf waterfront cottage offers a spectacular view of the river, and provides an escape for guests while enjoying the sights and sounds of the surrounding wildlife and flowing water.
A 2010 addition includes a custom 2,500-sf art studio flooded with natural light from large clerestory windows. This studio offers plenty of space for hosting gatherings and events but is also perfect for the more intimate recreation activities with rooms suitable for painting, work, or bait and tackle storage. For the outdoor enthusiast, a dock, complete with a 10′ x 36′ float, offers seamless access for boating, kayaking, paddle-boarding, and fishing. Beyond the rolling lawns and gardens, the property features two woodsheds, a lawnmower shed, garden shed, a campfire area, and a suspended two-story treehouse—all meticulously maintained.
Here, residents don’t have to worry about the disturbance of traffic since the property is one of the few residences on a 1.5-mile long no-outlet road, perfect for leisurely walks and life away from the hustle and bustle. Incredibly private, yet conveniently to Castine for dining at The Wharf or hikes at Holbrook Island Sanctuary, and just a short drive to Blue Hill, Belfast, Bangor, and Acadia National Park. The perfect blend of privacy with accessibility, offering an idyllic coastal lifestyle.
