Peace and Tranquility in the Woods by a Pristine Ocean Bay

Located in: Franklin
The house was begun in September, 2005 and finished 2 years later. Since it was designed to be shared by two sisters, the downstairs has two master bedroom–bath-walk-in closet combinations, each 16' X 24', the bedroom being 16' X 16'. Their tray ceilings give an even more open sense to the rooms. One room has a kingsize bed and the other, a double bed. Each room has its own entrance with a slider out onto the deck which continues around to the other bedroom, across the front, water side of the house.

The remaining central part of the downstairs is a 32' X 32' loosely defined space. There is the kitchen (15' X 14') open to the water side and a large closet in the center. The other 3/4 of the room is open for living and dining. The entire front has windows from floor to the roof.
In the center of the room a wooden spiral staircase leads to an upstairs loft--- reading nook with queensize futon, a large bedroom with twin beds and bath. These rooms take up a bit more than half the depth of the house (17') and all the width of the central room (32'). There is a railing along the long open hallway the width of the room below, from which you have a wonderful interior view of the beams of the house and open room below and through the tall windows a view of trees, rocks and ocean bay.

The 26’ X 28’ two-car garage has storage space. From the garage, there is a door to the spacious entry way. Here there is a half-bath. There is also a spinnet piano. The central space of the house (32’ X 32’) has a full basement and the two bedrooms have a 6’ high space under them, with easy access. Another door from the driveway leads into this foyer and from there you enter into the area between the kitchen to your left and the remaining open living/dining space, on your right and beyond the kitchen in front of you.

The land is on Taunton Bay, one of the quietest and most pristine bays in the part of Maine that is still easily accessible. Ellsworth, a lovely down-to-earth year round town is 7 miles away. And beyond that lie Blue Hill, Deer Isle, Stonington and Castine. Schoodic and Bar Harbor are also less than an hour away, as is Bangor, where there is the airport for Central Maine and rental cars available

We have 4 and 1/2 acres on a point of land that forms a small cove, of which 2/3 of the shoreline is ours. The house faces directly east and the point and cove lie to the south. The rocky, granite shore is wonderful, with a marshy area directly in front of the house and a higher, rocky shore line for the most part of the remaining coastline.

On the north side of the marshy area there is a large cleared, but by no means stripped, area which has been the scene of a family wedding. It is sunny near the shore and shady as you move inland to the house which is in full sun. Across the bay you can see a line of mountains. It is extremely quiet and peaceful.
