This Architect designed cottage is located on a year round island in Casco Bay, a 45 minute ferry ride from Portland. It sits on two acres of land with 300 feet of bold ocean frontage. The home, built in 1999, consists of 2800 square feet of living space, high ceilings, post and beam, bead board, hardwood floors, a spacious kitchen, dining room, living room with wood burning fireplace, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and a wraparound porch. It is the perfect spot to watch both the sun and the moon rise and to tell time with the sounds of waves, tides, and bell buoys. Additional features include a two bay detached boat house with 600 feet of finished space and an additional bath on the second floor. The boat house was constructed in 2007. The well established gardens and hand crafted stone walls provide spots for afternoon napping in the hammock and all kinds of lawn games. Walk down the stone steps to your own beach, grab your kayak, and explore the shore. The beach is the perfect location for lobster bakes, campfires, and combing for sea glass.Since the town's incorporation in 1993 the island residents have increased services and stabilized taxes. About 200 residents call the island home year around. The population grows significantly during the warmer months, with many residents returning generation after generation. Many of the residents make their living in fishing and ocean related industries. Others make the daily commute to Portland for their work. As you travel down the bay and Hussey Sound, you will see Long Island in the distance. When you hear the sound of the #10 Bell Buoy, you will know you are home. From the deck of the ferry, you will see the, fire and rescue squad's floating ambulance, the town hall, the community rec center, the island convenience store and the post office. Further up the island is the school (Pre K-5), the Library and the health center. Depending on the time of day you will see the island fishing fleet unloading their daily catch.
