Seal Harbor, Maine
About the Property:
Upon approach to this stately beauty, the large, circular driveway provides easy access for several cars, and the house is ideal for entertaining with well-proportioned rooms that flow together and a large wrap-around porch. Upon entering the house, the grand foyer leads to a formal living room to the right. This sizeable room is bright and airy with attractive built-ins, and a cozy fireplace to take the chill off, if need be. From the formal living room one can easily access the wrap-around deck that overlooks Acadia National Park. The dining room is sizeable enough to host 12 of your favorite people comfortably; it is conveniently off the kitchen. The kitchen enjoys great granite counter workspaces, and cherry cabinetry; off the kitchen is a cozy den and mudroom that accesses the deck and garage. Back to the grand foyer and up the wide and roomy stairs, all the bedrooms are en-suite and well-appointed. There is a sizable laundry area as well as an office that could be used as an additional bedroom. The lower level has an en-suite guest bedroom, an exercise room, and a billiards and media room. Each of these rooms has a view and access to a professionally landscaped and irrigated backyard, that offers a private sanctuary including a flat lawn, a fire-pit area, blueberry bushes, and mature trees. The home is fully winterized with Anderson 400-series windows throughout, and has an efficient central air system with high-velocity heating and cooling. The detached garage has an oversized door and bay for one car and room for bikes, kayaks, etc. as well.
About the Area:
The village of Seal Harbor has many attributes, including proximity to Northeast and Bar Harbor, a lovely hillside overlooking the quiet harbor and a well-protected public beach. The community abuts Acadia National Park, a significant portion of which was donated by Seal Harbor resident John D. Rockefeller. The Park Loop Road, the Seal Harbor Riding Stable, the historical Jordan Pond House, and the many carriage roads around Day Mountain, Little Long Pond, the Bubbles, and Jordan Pond, are all accessible from the village.
