This darling and beautifully decorated house/cottage has a fantastic location, on Wadsworth Cove,off of the Penobscot Bay, in the charming and historic small town of Castine. It sits right on the beach and the views of islands, spruce and granite are archetypical Maine. Each room is sunny and cheerful, and the view out of every window is of lovely woods and sea. The property has two acres on a private road, with 450 feet of waterfront and, although it is not remote, it has lots of privacy and tranquility.
You can walk out the back door, along the beach and into Witherle Woods, where there are many beautiful trails to explore. Or you can hop on a bike, or into a kayak and paddle into town. Castine is one of the most beautiful towns in Maine, and an historical gem as well. It is also one of the best boating harbors in Maine.
With a public golf course, and tennis courts, what more could you want? But if you just feel like relaxing, this house/cottage is a perfect place to sit with a book on the large porch looking out at the water, or down on the beach, only steps away.
I am an architect and designed and built this house in 1999 as my 'summer house'. Now, I live in Castine year 'round.
