Gulls Landing, a beautifully renovated two-to-three bedroom country home, is a haven set on 3.9 private acres in the quiet seaside neighborhood of Marlboro, with beautiful shorefront on Frenchman Bay. Perennial gardens and specimen trees allow for a very private setting with wide meandering lawns, stone walls and gardens, all with the backdrop of a full-on spectacular elevated view of Frenchman Bay and the mountains of Acadia.
A major architect-designed renovation in 2004-2005 included updated systems. Stainless steel appliances, including a Wolf six-burner range, blend seamlessly with antique and modern decor in the residence along with an antique fireplace mantle with granite surround and brick floors. Marble vanities, a claw foot tub, wood beams and distressed wood cabinets all enhance the feel of a very welcoming home. A glassed dining room and separate sunroom overlook the gardens and ocean. A large seasonal guest /entertainment barn built in 2014 is nearby the main house, with a soaring two-story ceiling in the living area, two bedrooms, a full kitchen, den, bath and second story studio space. Two garages and gardener's sheds add additional storage and workspace, in addition to the property's many other amenities, including irrigation and alarm systems and an automatic generator. The property is highlighted by a sloping point of land with panoramic views and access to the rocky private beach. Although privately sited, Gulls Landing is convenient to restaurants, shops and attractions in Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and Ellsworth. It is also a short drive to Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport which offers private aviation services and daily commercial flights to Boston. This coastal gem is the perfect year-round or vacation home.
