Located on the west side of Islesboro, just south of Meadow Pond, “Island Hideaway” offers privacy and serenity. This shingle-style home built in 2005 sits on 3.28± wooded acres. The house was lovingly designed and built by the current owners, one a master finish carpenter, the other an artist. Excellent craftsmanship and thoughtful details are found throughout the 2158± square feet of living space that blends elegance with simplicity in a comfortable setting. 

The first floor offers a sunlight-filled open living concept as the living room, dining room and kitchen flow together and the large screened-in porch extends this space during warmer months. The kitchen has beautiful mahogany countertops with a compass rose inlay, bespoke hutches and high-end appliances. A carved maple handrail leads you up to the second-floor studio where sunlight pours through the skylights.

The property has an additional building that includes a full bath, monitor heater and woodstove, and could easily be converted into a guest house or art studio.
