Located on a magical peninsula (minutes from Reid State Park and close to Popham Beach -- two of Maine's most beautiful beaches) this exclusive, European, modern home was designed by renowned German architect Klaus Mueller, a recipient of several architecture awards including the Mies van der Rohe prize. The owner is an interior designer from Germany with a deep love for coastal Maine who purchased the land in 1999 and built this home as a vacation getaway.
The structure is reminiscent of an elongated arch and sits on top of a 3200 square foot mahogany deck that provides stunning waterfront views of the peninsula as well as Hells Gate, a waterway of great notoriety due to its strong currents. The house is surrounded by tidal water on three sides.
The house was finished in 2009. It's extremely luxurious and decorated with furniture and art from Europe. The house has three bedrooms, three baths, a modern, fully-loaded kitchen as well as an open fireplace in the salon/living room area. The entrance hall is designed with Belgian Bluestone tiles and the entire rest of the house has Oak hardwood floors. All rooms are generously sized with a cathedral-dome ceiling in the living room. The living room/dining room and kitchen area is designed in an open loft-like style. The salon contains a 17th century sandstone fireplace from Champagne, France. All rooms have amazing waterfront views with no neighbor in sight!
All furniture is modern European and the decor is classic and elegant. The master bedroom has a king size bed and all other bedrooms have queen-sized beds. All bedrooms come with stunning private bathrooms. The bathroom are designed with natural stone and fixtures imported from Italy. Bathrooms are luxuriously sized with ceiling-height rain showers.
The houses has incredible views of Hell's Gate, a waterway leading to the open ocean at Reid State Park, a boat ride of approximately ten minutes.

This home is meant for someone who appreciates an impeccably decorated New England home with a modern European charm.
We stayed here 4 nights/5 days for a girls' getaway (there were four of us) and I can't rave enough about this marvelous home. Warm, inviting, comfortable...splendid views...and a beautiful property that makes you want to stay home and explore the surroundings/area. The house is ridiculously clean (there wasn't even dust in the corners) and includes high-quality everything from linens, towels, and hand soaps to Swiss Diamond skillets, stylish and comfy couches, and any kind of dish/servingware you could imagine (it even had red- and white-wine specific glasses)! As a passionate cook, I loved the range/oven/fridge, the fully stocked pantry (everything you could want from a variety of different oils and spices to flours and sugars), and the kitchen gadgets that make life easier (it even had a citrus squeezer, cheese slicer, and French press!). Every detail of the house makes you feel special...candy jars, bottled water, a nice collection of recent movies, robes in every bathroom, candles...the list goes on. In fact, I felt less like a "renter" and more like an invited guest! We had coffee every morning down by the water. The owners have set up three sitting areas along the water (one with a huge, comfortable wood bench, another with wood adirondack chairs, and another with bistro-like chairs) each with different views so you can fully take in the beauty of the area. How thoughtful! And there are plenty of outdoor tables, chairs, and loungers on the huge deck. Working with Lisa was smooth and easy. A great communicator (never dropped the ball once and was very responsive), she is also so kind and full of helpful suggestions for places to see and go. I've rented from more than two dozen VRBO homes across the U.S. and this one is the Gold Standard that every VRBO owner should aspire to! Thank you, Rita, for sharing your wonderful home!
Great site, wonderful architecture, fabulous décor and exquisite attention to detail make this an ideal setting for adults who enjoy the comforts of an extraordinary high-end contemporary vacation home. The hosts provided all amenities for gracious informal living in a secluded quiet setting that included a resident osprey, deer, etc. The choices in art and available books are more than interesting. We spent many hours on the expansive deck watching the birds, reading and dozing, and peering at the stars and boats going by. Though secluded, the house is within 10 minutes of Bath and interesting points in all directions. A small pond located nearby invited swimming. Cooking was great fun in the top-of–the line kitchen. There are also some excellent restaurants within a short drive and the Saturday morning farmer’s market in Bath is not to be missed. Choosing which of the three bedrooms (each with it’s lovely bath) to stay in was difficult as all are fabulous. The house is ideal for up to six adults and offers both privacy and places to congregate. That number may increase as two additional rooms in the lower level are yet to be completed. We look forward to many return visits.
