About 30 Strawberry Hill Road

Unique, one-of-a-kind, 4 story, inverted, 12 room, 5.5 bath home on 5 +/- acres. A 'top of the world' location. Ever-changing panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, Frenchman Bay, mountains and forest of Acadia National Park, and the sky. Designed by architect, James Schildroth (disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright).Starcrest is a spacious, luxury, passive solar home of striking “timeless” architecture – a ‘sculpture’ by architect James Schildroth, a Frank Lloyd Wright scholar – with the best ‘world class’ panoramic views. This hilltop, inverted home is sited on the 25th best island in the world (per Travel and Leisure Magazine) – Mount Desert Island – and only one mile from the center of the town of Bar Harbor. Step out onto any of the eight decks and enjoy the ever changing panorama of the sky and the night’s spectacular celestial show – hence the name Starcrest – in the “largest expanse of naturally dark sky east of the Mississippi” (per Acadia Night Sky Festival). Located at the end of a dead-end road, in a subdivision of 5 acre lots, this home provides the owner privacy, tranquility, and natural beauty. Breathtaking views of Frenchman Bay, the Gulf of Maine (Atlantic Ocean), the five Porcupine Islands, and the forests and mountains of Acadia National Park are seen from every window in this home in the sky. In the basement – large, dry, and concrete – you will find a fitness/workout area, an elevator to all levels, the elevator control room, power entrance containing phone and security control systems, the furnace, fire wood storage, and a pet bathing tub. This level also has a walk-out rear exit to the yard. On the entry level, containing a heated two-car garage, there is a billiard/pool room with a solarium open to the above level and a large deck with stairs leading to the yard, a small deck with a hot tub also accessible from the billiard room, an artist’s studio with a wall of northern facing skylights, and a room/bedroom with a full bath. On the second floor – also referred to as the bedroom level – around the glass balustrade open to the billiard room below, you’ll find a master bedroom with a master bath, walk in closet, and private deck (above the lower hot tub deck), a bunk room containing 4 child bunks, a bedroom with a full bath and wall of skylights, and a bedroom with a full bath and small ‘balcony’ deck. The top level, providing expansive panoramic views from its multitude of windows and four decks (three of which are interconnected), houses the kitchen which has a pantry, dinette, and half bath, a study with a full bath, and a great room with a dining area, TV alcove, and wet bar containing an ice maker.
