Seal Cove House is a new post and beam year home with glorious views, friendly waterfront, a large lawn and the perfect melding of coastal charm and modern necessities. Located on Spruce Head, minutes from the St. George Peninsula, Owls Head and larger towns of Rockland and Camden, Seal Cove House is light-filled and comfortable for both small and larger groups. The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a fully equipped kitchen, WiFi, satellite TV, a flat screen television as well as stunning views of Wheeler’s Bay, antique apple trees and a beach perfect for launching a kayak, swimming and exploring. The house is open concept with cathedral ceilings, tiled floors, a first floor bedroom and bath and floor to ceiling windows designed to bring the light reflecting off the water into the house – its hard to know when the house stops and the outside begins.
The house's lawn slopes down to the Wheeler's Bay. Walk along the shore of Spruce Head Island, watch lobster boats come in after a long day, kayak along the craggy shores of the Maine coast and then return to this stunning house to sit on the lawn and watch the sun sink over the horizon.
This location is ideal – island living without the need for a ferry. An easy drive on and off to quickly access the St. George Peninsula (including the villages of Port Clyde and Tenants Harbor), Rockland and the Camden/Rockport area.
Upon arrival you will find a tidy, spacious and comfortable house with a green lawn leading down to the friendly waterfront, perfect for swimming, kayaking or exploring. The experience is even greater thanks to a lobster pound just a walk away – pick up lobster, right off the boat, and walk it back to a well-equipped kitchen.
The house is open concept with a balcony overlooking the dining and living areas. A wall of oversized windows welcomes the sunlight and the ocean breeze wherever you are in the house.
Downstairs, find a master bedroom with a queen bed. There is a full bathroom (complete with a full sized washer and dryer) as well. At the front of the house, find a sitting area, a dining area with seating for 6+ and a living room area. The living room has a couch and an easy chair as well as a wall mounted flat screen television with cable. Seal Cove House is also equipped with wireless Internet connection. This entire area has views of the water.
The kitchen is fully equipped and has lots of counter space for meal preparation or more than one cook – there is also a breakfast bar overlooking the water and the living room.
Upstairs, find 2 bedrooms and another full bath. Both bedrooms are private (on opposite sides of the house) and flank a large full bathroom. The bedrooms and the bath are accessed by a cat walk – a truly beautiful architectural feature of this house.
Outside, find a stone patio with Adirondack chairs and a picnic table.
The front lawn is perfect for small wedding ceremonies or a small gathering – it is also ideal for strolling down to the water in the morning and drinking your coffee waterside. It is peaceful and relaxing – just what everyone needs.
Spruce Head is a wonderful area close to St. George (Tenants Harbor, Port Clyde, Martinsville, Clark Island) and Rockland and Camden. This is an island you can drive on to, making this location the best of both worlds.
