Unbelievable opportunity to own a historic home with million-dollar views on Swan's Island. Sit on your front porch to watch lobster boats and schooners sail in and out of Burnt Coat Harbor with the lighthouse in the background. Or relax in your back yard while enjoying sights and sounds of wildlife on the Mill Pond.
The property includes the main house and two-story outbuilding that used to house the island's trap making shop. Would make an amazing artist's studio or great 'camp' for extra visitors. On the pond side there is a concrete base of an old dock that is grandfathered, meaning you could rebuild. The harbor side has a path to your own private sand beach!
Current owners have completed major improvements including replacing roof on both buildings, rebuilding wrap-around porch with composite materials, and repairing interior water damage. They are also leaving a set of French doors they hadn't installed yet so you can choose the perfect location.
The floorplan has all the delightful quirkiness you'd expect in a Maine cottage originally built before plumbing was widely available. With a full bath squeezed in under the stairs and a kitchen with a slanty ceiling because they added on to accommodate it...so much character! The house is in move-in condition if you enjoy the quirks. But it also has a great footprint if you want to tear down some walls and make it your own.
It is technically a 3-season home at the moment, because there is no functioning heat system. The house is, however, insulated!
