Tranquility, a private estate on Frenchman Bay in Hull's Cove, a quiet village in Bar Harbor, presents a rare family compound of three fully appointed year-round residences with a separate guest/caretaker apartment. This unprecedented enclave is located on 10± serene, parklike acres with 1,100' of deepwater shorefront on the grounds of a former estate. In this registered wildlife preserve, deer, fox, and bunnies wander throughout the property as eagles soar overhead. Paths meander throughout the property, around and over a gentle stream and reflecting pond; graceful arched bridges cross the stream, with teak and granite benches along the paths. An heirloom orchard graces a quiet corner of the property and leads to the water. A granite fire pit set apart from the main house, as are croquet and bocce courts. Several staircases access the beaches and rocky shoreline, and a deep water dock with electrical power and water service provides access to two offshore moorings.
Tranquility's main, architect designed house at the water's edge has a spacious Great Room, with open living/dining/kitchen area; a sweeping curved stairway highlights the welcoming foyer. A quiet office, den with breakfast room, screened porch, and en suite bedroom with private deck are all on the first floor; the second floor has a second primary en suite bedroom with private deck and two additional bedrooms. An oversized two car garage provides parking and storage, as well as a two-bedroom year-round efficiency residence.
Tranquility Gatehouse enjoys a lush garden setting with a four-bedroom, year-round residence with a large deck and screened porch.
Tranquility Carriage House was built incorporating part of the granite foundation and cutting gardens of the original Baymeath estate. There are 3 bedrooms with a screened porch. A separate estate office is part of this residence, with large, attached garage/work area. An additional two-car storage garage and greenhouse is also at this site.
