A Coastal Cottage on Northeast Harbor Maine

Text by Maria LaPiana
The village of Northeast Harbor in Maine is known far and wide for its sheltered harbor filled with exclusive yachts and sailing vessels, so naturally it’s a favorite summer destination. But it’s a vibrant community for year-round residents as well, and its proximity to this classic shingled beauty makes the property even more appealing (if that were possible). Designed by noted Maine cottage architect Fred L. Savage and built in 1890, this home is fresh, inviting, thoroughly relaxed in style—and updated in every possible way. There are eleven rooms (five bedrooms; five full, and one half bath) in 5,200 square feet of living space. The half-acre parcel has 114 feet of water frontage and a deep-water dock; balconies and covered porches overlook the picturesque harbor. A plus for lovers of the great outdoors: The home isn’t far from famed Acadia National Park. The property is listed for $5,900,000 with The Knowles Company. The MLS # is 1233317. For more information visit the property website or call (207) 276-3322.
