A rare private wilderness retreat, reminiscent of the idyllic Maine 3-season compound, which existed 100 years ago in multigenerational family cottages. Dramatic geologic formations, including two mountains, spectacular cliffs & mature forest canopy, including thousands of feet of private water frontage comprise this 483.54 acre property - offering stunning topography on one of Maine's clearest lakes. The 1.5 miles of shoreline provides a private cove for swimming, canoeing & kayaking, from sunrise to sunset. Dive in from a shoreline boulder or cliff into the deep water of Craig Pond. Hike on miles of private trails and blaze new trails through national park-like terrain and habitat. Venture to nearby Great Pond Mountain & look back with wonder at the splendor of this magnificent property. Loons, owls, eagles, osprey, kingfishers, and a full orchestra of songbirds call the thoughtfully-managed sanctuary home. At the heart of the property is a 6500 +/- square foot, award-winning retreat, landscaped & built by Maine's top architects and builder. Carefully-fitted into nature, blurring where the indoors & the rugged moss & fern-covered forest meet, this home is as welcoming to 6 people as it is to 20. Construction is unrivaled in its attention to detail and craftsmanship. The simplicity and charm overlay commercial-grade security & utilities, designed to minimize time with laundry, dishes, opening & closing. Among the places that bring people together and into nature are the swim rock, hammock grotto, hot tub & grill area, which are built into the natural landscape out of local Lucerne granite. Perched on the base of a cliff at the water's edge, is a separate cabin to enjoy with friends or to find solitude. Acreage includes multiple potential building sites for creating a compound on prime parcels of equal appeal. Far from crowds, but close to Northeast Harbor, Blue Hill, Castine, Belfast, & both Bar Harbor & Bangor airports.
