Spindrift sits high on the bluffs of Port Clyde, offering absolutely stunning views of Muscongus Bay. We like Spindrift because it is classic without being stuffy and modern without being cold…a truly brilliant blend of comfort, architectural artistry, functionality and aesthetic appeal.
Sundrenched on the inside, the exterior living spaces offer a deck along the entire front of the house, a private deck on the second floor, a wonderful lawn and natural landscaping that feels private, casual and welcoming. Sitting on 3 private acres with 220 feet of water frontage, you can walk or bike to Port Clyde Village or Drift Inn Beach. Tenants Harbor Village is easily accessible as well with the larger towns of Rockland, Rockport and Camden within a 20-30 minute drive.
Spindrift sits on Deep Cove and to make use of this fabulous waterfront, a multi-tiered wharf was constructed in 2011 to gently bring you down to the water. The dock is perfectly suited for launching a kayak, tying up a larger boat (please ask about draws at low tide) or a tender, swimming, fishing or simply sitting and reading or having a glass of wine at sundown. There is a deepwater mooring for use as well. Port Clyde harbor and village can be quickly accessed by the water as well – motor or kayak to the Dip Net, The Barn or Harpoon for dinner.
The main house is well designed with an open floorplan, high ceilings and an expanse of windows bringing the magnificent view in.
The kitchen is open to the dining area making casual entertaining easy – the kitchen is gourmet with granite countertops, professional appliances and a butler’s pantry. The dining area has a fieldstone fireplace and large rectangular table which can easily seat a large party. In the breakfast nook at the front of the house, there is also a round table that is an ideal place for informal meals.
Off the kitchen find a laundry room, a powder room and a wet bar.
The living room is breathtaking – soaring cathedral ceilings with whitewashed pine beams, window seats a gorgeous granite fireplace and built-in bookcases. French doors, skylights and stunning windows built into the eaves bring light and airiness to the entire house. Comfortable furnishings fill out the room – areas of entertaining and reading. A wall, arm mounted flat screen television can be viewed from the living room or the dining room or kitchen. The house is also equipped with a sound system.
A truly beautiful master suite is set away from the main living area via a window flanked hallway – the master bedroom’s ceiling mimics the living room. There is a stunning propane granite fireplace, French doors to the deck, a sitting area and a private bath with double sinks, a powder room, a green marble shower and a extra deep soaking tub. The most spectacular part of the master – including the bathroom – is the views from virtually everywhere in the suite. Take a shower or bath and watch a sailboat drift by (they can’t see you) or fall asleep listening to the waves hit the shore. The master also has a flatscreen television.
Upstairs, there are 2 large bedrooms and a shared jack and jill bath. The first bedroom, with a queen, has cathedral ceilings and a private balcony. The second, also with a queen, has high ceilings and wonderful views of the grounds. The bathroom has a large vanity and a separate shower room. The tub/shower has brilliant views of the water as well.
The house has hardwood throughout, except in some of the bathrooms and the second floor. The property is equipped with WiFi and the main house has central air-conditioning. Both the main house and the carriage house are year-round with heating systems in place.
The estate also has a carriage house behind the main house.
You are amongst the tree-tops in this expansive and exceedingly comfortable guest house — a new deck offers outdoor living space and glimpses of the ocean beyond.
A cupola and skylights allow for natural light to drench the open-concept interior. There are hardwood floors in the main living space and berber carpet in the bedrooms. The kitchen is recently updated with a gourmet Bertazzoni gas cooktop and a Gaggenau convection oven.
The large deck leads to the interior of the guest house through an open hallway — offering a place to take off sandy shoes and hang up wet towels — and into the main living area of the house. This is a large open space with lots of windows and natural light.
The kitchen is open and functional and has a table that can easily seat 6+ people.
The living room has 2 couches (one can easily be used as a twin bed) and comfortable lounge chairs. The house offers a flat-screen television with cable and a DVD player. In addition, there is a desk — big enough for a laptop — for those who need to work during their vacation and WiFi is also offered.
Each bedroom is virtually the same in size and all have new, queen beds. One of the 3 bedrooms is large enough for a Pack 'n Play® or a small, portable bed if need be.
The bathroom is spacious and bright with a deep tub and shower. There is also a washer and dryer for guest use.
You’ll not want to missPort Clyde, at the end of the peninsula on Route 131, a classic small Maine fishing village, devoted chiefly to lobstering—but also offering facilities for recreational boaters and tourists. Near its wharves, Port Clyde boasts a general store, shops, art galleries, restaurants, and a limited number of small lodging facilities. It's also where you catch the daily ferry to Monhegan Island. You'll find one of the most photographed places in our area a short distance from the village center: Marshall Point Light (made famous in the film “Forrest Gump”), which serves as a sentry at the entrance to the harbor. The former lightkeeper's house is now a historical museum open to the public in season.
