Property Description

This lovely Federal-style house is one of the original homes in the idyllic coastal village of Somesville on the summer resort island of Mount Desert. Built in the early 19th century by the Somes family, the original settlers of Somesville, this classic New England white clapboard home is situated on one acre and was completely reconstructed in 1990. Stunning upgrades include an indoor pool, all new mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems, and a two story addition featuring a family room with fireplace on the first floor that opens onto a lovely terrace. Outside a beautiful fall and spring garden designed by Dennis Bracale was planted surrounding a private stone terrace wtih expansive mountain views.

Since 2006 additional improvements have been made including a new kitchen, extensive fencing, interior painting, new carpeting, insulation, and resurfacing of the pool. The home has been maintained meticulously ever since. Amenities are numerous and include two fireplaces, a full bathroom for each bedroom, a lovely screened in porch on the first floor and open porch on the second floor, each having views of Somes Harbor, a full house generator, and walk up storage above the two car garage. This property is ideal for summer or year round living and enjoys a desirable and convenient location on Mount Desert Island.
