Situated 5.5 miles up the Bagaduce River from Penobscot Bay and Castine, this one-of-a-kind home sits on 10.5 acres of woodlands and fields with 600' of waterfront on the Johnson Point Narrows. Harbor seals swim through the ever-changing tidal current to sun themselves on nearby granite ledges. The well-maintained dock features a 10'x36' float, making for easy boating access to explore the diverse wildlife of this unspoiled estuary. It's only a fifteen minute boat ride to Penobscot Bay. This high quality saltwater habitat is heavily used by migrating waterfowl, wading birds and other wildlife. Bald eagles nest within view at a nearby island. There are three country clubs and three yacht clubs within a 15-20 minute drive in nearby Blue Hill, Castine and Deer Isle. Bangor International Airport and Acadia Nat'l Park are a 45 minute car ride. Adjacent towns provide a terrific grocery store, fitness center, food co-op, regional hospital, chamber music, art galleries, fine dining and quality schools. In 1980 the original log home was lovingly restored and various perennial gardens were planted. The more spacious contemporary addition was created in 1998 to provide an open floor plan with living/kitchen/dining rooms and a fabulous master suite above, including a sitting/library area, providing 4,900 sq. ft. of living space. . In 2010, the year-round, spacious 2,500 sq. ft. artist's dream studio was constructed with a full, dry basement. This could easily be used as a rec room for billiards and table tennis, growing a small business or woodworking projects. Ample natural light is complimented with an array of full-spectrum fluorescent lights and LED track lighting to create soothing light for any activity. The 420 sq. ft. waterfront cottage and nearby campfire setup is ideal for out-of-town guests to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of river wildlife, fishing for striped bass and kayaking.
