Some of the most amazing views you'll ever experience from this hilltop contemporary perched above Burnt Coat Harbor on Swan's Island. This custom 4 story home has 3 levels of decks on the water side to enjoy views as far as the eye can see beyond the harbor to the open ocean. Words cannot describe the beauty of this area and the unique setting of this house. There is a right of way to the shore for swimming and boating and the house comes with a mooring in the harbor if you wish. Come experience this island getaway and hike the numerous island trails or explore Fine Sand Beach or just sit and eat Lobster at one of the local sites. Great Biking on the island the ferry ride is only 35 minutes from Bass Harbor. Southwest Harbor is just a few miles away from the Ferry terminal with grocery stores and restaurants and Acadia National Park's headquarters and entrance would be about 1/2 hour drive from the mainland side of the terminal for great day trips.
The VIEW- : Sitting atop a secluded and very private height of land, 'Ardmore'( a name taken from the Irish/Gaelic( high hill ) was built, and recently completed, by the owner 3 years ago. From 3 of the 4 floors you have a spectacular, panoramic, 270 degree view of the open Atlantic and the many islands that lie along Swans Island's shores. There are 3 large, expansive wrap around decks with plenty of outdoor chairs and tables to sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the smells of the salty air and the forests of Spruce.
The HOME: The owner and one very skilled builder/carpenter took 3 years to carefully construct this 4 story, aesthetically pleasing home. The floors are tile and oak, the walls and ceilings are plaster, the trim work, cabinets and shelves are all of wild Maine Cherry all custom crafted on site. The fireplace built of locally gathered granite is 4 sided, center placed and 55 feet tall. The appliances are all top of the line. The building has a state of the art radiant heating system, very high quality doors and windows and for the handy man a large and well designed workshop. The 4 bathrooms all have tiled shower stalls and floors. The master bedroom and the 1st floor bedroom have bathrooms en suite. It is a very bright and comfortable home with beautiful views from almost every window.
