JUST LISTED! A gorgeous Yankee Barn post and beam home on Mount Desert Island
Although I'm primarily a Lodging Broker, every now and then I list a residential property. This one is located in Pretty Marsh, on the western side Mount Desert Island, Maine. This is what I refer to as a great "feel good" house. Not to mention one for entertaining.
Situated on 10 private acres just minutes from the Pretty Marsh harbor, "Spottsbrooke" is a Yankee Barn post and beam home with 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths and a detached 3 car garage. The kitchen is an absolute dream to a foodie like myself, complete with a cork tile flooring (softer under foot) a 6 burner gas stove, and a special corner WOK stove (doesn't every home offer this?). There seem to be yards and yards of granite counter space, Jenn-Air double ovens and the kitchen is open to the sunny great room/dining room. The custom granite fireplace is definitely one of the focal points of this unique home.
The first floor Master Bedroom offers plenty of light, space and a large bath with marble vanity and steam shower, beautifully done in neutral Travertine tile. The second floor offers two guest bedrooms, full bath with marble and an office open to the great room below. The basement is finished and offers a "rec room", office, full bath and wine cellar.
There is a spacious barn, a potting shed, a pond, a "campsite" and a couple miles of walking trails on the property.
Offered at $929,000 - this is one fabulous property.
