Built high upon a granite ledge, close to the water, the jagged coastline gives this unique home its dramatic setting with sweeping views of Western Bay sunsets and distant islands. Nestled against forest on 5.4 acres, a cottage garden spills from its entrance to greet its guests. There are three separate outdoor decks, each possessing its own charm and unique vista. Grassy slopes gently descend to highly coveted deep water frontage, with two coves and private beach -- perfect for picnics and launching out on the water. The stunning great room features vaulted ceilings, an antique brick fireplace and massive windows... with an open floor plan that allows the kitchen to enjoy both the crackling fire and breathtaking views. With two bedrooms, each with its own private bath, on the first floor, a staircase ascends to the open loft upstairs -- where an artist's studio is tucked into a window, looking out to the sea. There is also a study for getting away to, a half bath, and mammoth storage.
As rustic and charming as this home's interior is, it is hard to compete with the raw beauty of the waves breaking on the ledges below, as the lobster boats chug by each morning, with the sound of gulls crying overhead. And at Ledgend, the days have a way of ending softly, for those who love her most... gathered at the window to watch yet another of a thousand sunsets.
Among Maine’s many boasts--striking scenery, historic maritime towns, colorful lobster shacks--perhaps none is greater than having the distinction of being the first state to see the sun rise each morning.Read more about luxury homes in Maine
