Ocean Point, located on 11± acres at the end of a long private driveway, encompasses an entire point of land, with rugged and dramatic shorefront, pristine sandy beaches and quiet wooded areas. The residence is sited very close to the ocean’s edge, private yet not secluded. Several sandy beaches, rarely found along the coast of Maine, bold granite outcroppings, and pocket popplestone coves comprise the 2,927′ of dramatically scenic shorefront. A natural forest of moss, lichens and conifers frames the open areas around the residence, where one can enjoy endless panoramic views. Additional views to the East could be obtained by selective cutting, if desired. The traditional Cape-style residence has four bedrooms and two full baths; there is also a large apartment over the two-car garage, with open living space, separate bedroom, full kitchen and full bath. The pleasing main residence has many classic New Englander details, such as wide, old fashioned fireplaces in the dining and living rooms, hardwood floors, large oceanside windows and finished pine paneling in some of the rooms. This peninsula property is bounded by open ocean on one shore, the protected anchorage of Burnt Cove, and a quiet cove on the other. Offshore islands, lobster boats and sailing yachts provide a constant parade of activity against the sky. Ocean Point also faces West, so colorful sunsets are a given; it’s a gorgeous setting with incredible presence.
Easily accessed by a bridge from the mainland, Deer Isle offers a quiet ‘Down East island’ atmosphere, without the limitations of island life. The nearby villages of Stonington and Deer Isle present a variety of options for cultural, shopping, recreational and dining facilities. Historically famous for granite quarrying, the Deer Isle/Stonington area is also a favorite among yachtsmen for its many pristine offshore islands located along Merchant’s Row in Penobscot Bay.
