This gracious country home was built in 1989 by the owner, a home builder and building contractor, and is an outstanding custom built residence in a wonderful woodland setting with the seashore nearby. While this is not a waterfront property, the proximity to the ocean affords the sound and scent of the sea nearby. There is a separate waterfront parcel on Harrington Cove just a short walk away that affords access with this offering.

The house is set in an open and elevated setting with a driveway that winds gently uphill from the entrance at Harrington Cove Road.

Surrounded by mixtures of spruce, maple and pine, the private sunny lawns with mature plantings make this a unique and beautiful setting. Other features include a large country kitchen with southern and western exposures, kitchen balcony,  formal dining room with cathedral ceiling, a cozy living room with granite fireplace, master bedroom with granite fireplace and bathroom suite. A large deck with a maple tree growing through the center provides both sun and shade. In the backyard, surrounded by spruce and pine trees, there is an enchanting tree house for the kids and even doubles as fun overnight quarters for quests. There is also a rustic gardening shed in the back yard.

The owners and their family have enjoyed this beautiful home and setting for 20 years. Harrington Cove is just a few minutes walk away. sandy beaches nearby, City of Rockland on Penobscot Bay just 7 miles away. Low property tax rate in St. George and many other attractions to this area. Since the ocean is only about a half mile away and in a southwesterly direction, wonderful sea breezes are enjoyed from this elevated property location. The bell buoy can be heard on Southern Island and when the wind is right, the bells and ship traffic from the Mussel Ridge Channel near Spruce Head can be heard. Listen to the ocean surf in the distance and smell the salt air through the spruce trees.

There is a winding path leading from a parking space just off the driveway to this private setting. The interior has a simple kitchen and sleeping loft. The cathedral ceiling with its hand peeled spruce poles and pine board sheathing is warm and inviting. It has been a favorite of the owner's guests for many years.
