Harbor & Mountain Views
BRAND NEW LUXURY HOME! (NO PETS) Finished October 2017. 85ft from the water in Southwest Harbor. AC upper floor! I am highly doubtful you will find a newer or more finely appointed home in the Southwest Harbor area. No detail was spared in the design of this home - all ship lap, beadboard, wood floors are solid wood. No laminates, veneers, etc. Professional lighting fixtures throughout. All Furnishings are either antique or brand new custom made to look antique. All high end furnished from the living room to the beds and bedding. More decorative finishing touches to be added in May/June. Wrap around deck with covered porch on one side. Four Cottage perennial gardens span the length of the house on all sides - over 50 different plant types. Likely only one other home in Southwest Harbor with gardens that come close. Have fun counting the Monarchs!
The home is Located on the the very desirable Shore Road with expansive views of both Southwest Harbor and the Mountains of Acadia. From the front of the house you are looking straight down the entrance of Some Sound. One can see Greening Island, Bear Island Lighthouse, Sutton Island, and a partial view of the Cranberry Islands. Both Upper Bedrooms have AIR CONDITIONING. 2 upper bedrooms both very large and both with KING beds. 2 twins on the first floor in nautical kids room.
There is a large fourth bedroom that also serves as a family room. A pullout queen sofa, a love seat, and a chair, a day bed, along with a 50 inch TV and surround sound. There is another large room in the lower level has a ping pong table for evening play. Full bath in the lower level with vanity and Deere Isle granite top and Restoration Hardware fixtures.
For those that like quiet - the windows are Anderson A-series and the roof has 10 inches of closed cell spray foam.
'Downtown' Southwest harbor is a short 2 minute car ride and the Seawall beach of Acadia National Park is 3 minutes by car. Many restaurants close by, but you may not want to leave the house!

About Jen & Len
We have been coming to Mount Desert Island for almost 25 years. We have traveled extensively in the U.S. and around the world. MDI is the only place we came back to every year. After having explored much of the island and stayed in many locations throughout, we purchased in the Manset area of Southwest Harbor as we feel the combination of water and mountain views are among the best on the island. It is called the quiet side for a reason!
Jen & Len purchased this House in 2013
Why Jen & Len chose Southwest Harbor
The views of both the Harbor, Mountains, and boats(both pleasure craft and fishing) are unmatched. The craftsmanship, combined with the furnishings and gardens are unmatched in Southwest Harbor

Charming Cottage with Wonderful Views
This cottage proved to be perfect for our family vacation to Mt. Desert island.
The house was bright, airy, comfortable and clean. The neighborhood was quiet and we loved the views from the master bedroom and deck. We were very pleased with the location in Southwest Harbor, a much smaller community than Bar Harbor, but with ample attractions and places to eat. Plus it's only short 20 minute drive away from the main loop in Acadia National Park. We definitely would recommend this property and would happily stay here again.
