'Rockbound'-Essence of Maine Coastal Living

Located in: Bristol
Our home, originally built as a cottage in the 1920's and refurbished in the 70's and again in the 1990's retains the 'cottage feeling' while offering the conveniences of a 4 season home. Located on Long Cove Point on the Pemaquid Peninsula which juts out into the ocean
between the fishing communities of New Harbor and Round Pond Harbor. It begins with a sandy beach and ends with a stretch of granite outcroppings which are the source of spectacular surf.
Rockbound is perched on a small knoll above the rocks and surf. Days begin with awesome sunrises, panoramic views of the ocean, the islands (Monhegan being the most well known),the Camden hills in the distance and always the sounds and smells of the ocean abound. A lower deck extends from lawn's edge out over the rocks - a favorite spot for lobster bakes, morning coffee, sunbathing, catching up on one's reading, or star gazing at night.Rosa Ragosa and bayberry bushes define the sides and front of property, while a 3 tiered flower garden lines the walkway to the lower deck.
The feeling inside the house has been likened to that of being on the bridge of a ship-with an open design and cathedral ceilings, ocean visible from the kitchen, living and dining rooms. Attention has been paid in preserving the New England coastal heritage-authentic sea captain's chests, pine bureaus, claw footed bath tub, original art by Maine artists, braided rugs, wide pine flooring-all capturing the 'cottage feeling' while offering the conveniences of today's lifestyle.
Chamberlain and New Harbor are part of the historic Pemaquid Peninsula, originally inhabited by the Wawenock Indians with their chief 'Samoset' who befriended the pilgrims in the 1620's.(www.friendsofcolonialpemaquid.org). It has always been a working fishing community, and also a community of second home owners, all conscious of it's heritage and aware of its place in the early history of New England.
Fort William Henry, Colonial Pemaquid, preservation of the ancient oyster shell heaps, maintaining the Pemaquid lighthouse-all important concerns for 'the locals' and offer our visitors a unique glimpse back in time.
Unique Benefits of this 4 Season Home: Watching the lobstermen pull their traps every morning. Listening to the bell buoys ringing out as they serve as signals to all boaters. Enjoying the chance to see, smell and feel the ocean up close and personal. Being able to walk around the point safely any time day or night, not worrying about traffic. Being able to go to the small sandy beach and put in a kayak or canoe,take a quick swim or just spread out a blanket on the little beach and watch the seagulls or harbor seals perform, are additional benefits of living on Long Cove Point.
