Cove’s End is truly a work of art. Its architecture is an amalgamation of timeless New England design and modern architecture, giving rise to a feeling of space and light while being comfortable and inviting. The property is elegant and casual all at the same time.
The house is located in Cushing, more specially in the exclusive community of Gaunt Neck. Gaunt Neck is a 75-acre peninsula jutting out into the Muscongus Bay and is one of 3 communities within Meduncook Bay Colony.
The community offers acres of protected pine forests, miles of waterfront, a common area with a pier, ramp and float as well as private tennis courts and access to Hornbarn Hill, one of the highest coastal geographic features in the Midcoast area.
The historical importance of Gaunt Neck is also of interest; a 3-acre lot has been identified as a Native American quartz mining site as well as a settler’s cemetery and 2 pre-revolutionary building sites.
Access to Port Clyde, Tenants Harbor and Friendship is very quick and easy by boat and it is only a 15 to 20 minutes drive Rockland, Camden and Rockport.

Cushing, situated on its own peninsula southwest of Thomaston, is famous for its saltwater farms and is at the heart of Maine's 'Wyeth Country.' The Olson House—immortalized by Andrew Wyeth's paintings of the structure and its occupants, Christina and Alvaro Olson—is a widely recognized icon of the region. Another attraction is the Cushing Historical Society Museum on Hathorn Point Road. Cushing is primarily a rural residential community with few commercial enterprises. There's a general store, a few B & Bs, and seasonal cottage/vacation rentals. To reach Cushing, take Wadsworth Street from U.S. Route 1 in Thomaston at the Maine State Prison Showroom Store. It may also be reached from Route 97 in Warren.
