Private family estate with spectacular ocean views from every room. Located near the small, working harbor village (buy your lobsters right off the docks) of Cutler, Maine. Our property encompasses a large tract of land adjoining conservation ground for hiking and stargazing, silence and solitude. Back a private mile and half drive through fragrant spruce, firs and mosses walk right out onto a large, privately-owned stretch of bold coastline.
This exceptional property hosts a heath (bog), pitcher-plants, grouse, bobcat and eagles. Whales and seals are regularly observed from the deck of the house. Moose are often spotted in the driveway. Watch the lobstermen pull their traps in front of the house. Soak up incredible sunrises and sunsets, misty fogs and sparkling seas. Storm spray can hit the windows of the house during a good Nor'easter..
