Luxury Estate, 35 acres of privacy yet near town! Pool, Hot tub, Tennis and Dock

Located in: Harpswell
A 35-acre Island Retreat (but you can drive there!) on one MILE of Maine frontage. Stunning views from every window of this 6,000 square foot shingle style home. Designed by noted San Francisco Architect, Brooks Walker and the landscape architects Stroudwater Design, the property is tailored to bring people together to experience the Maine coast in an intimate setting.

The estate is as unique as it is spacious. There is probably not another property as close to Portland (40 min) that is as secluded and private as Dingley Island. Offering three floors, six large bedrooms, four with private baths (plus a large open plan 3rd floor with private bath, with lots of room for Aerobeds and overflow) as well as a carriage house with full amenities. Prepare meals in the gourmet kitchen or enjoy cocktails mixed at the wet bar in the timber frame Great Room with Steinway piano and a towering granite fireplace competing for attention with the all encompassing water views. Dine with your family and friends in a one of a kind dining room nestled between two walls of windows with french doors to bring the outdoors in and a table-side fire perfecting the atmosphere and warming you from the evening sea breeze..

A yachter's dream, there is a 120' floating dock with 10' of deep water at low tide as well as two moorings. A classic 'hurricane hole' of protected anchorage. The dock is sometimes shared with the owner when they are in town and staying at the second house on the vast property. If you are lucky enough to be staying at that time, do not be surprised if your offered a private water tour of the local area.

Watch the seals basking on the rocks from one of two private second floor balconies and be on the lookout for one of the numerous Bald Eagles who frequent the treetops surrounding the house. Explore the 35 acre estate; discovering beautifully landscaped gardens, private coves, swim float, fresh water pond, hot tub, swimming pool, basketball and tennis court, complete with pitching machine. If there are adventurers in your group they may choose to spend a night roughing it in the two story treehouse complete with electricity, kingsize bed, and two daybeds. Walk the numerous private nature trails including a full mile of scenic coastline while looking for local wildlife or paddle the rugged Maine coast while kayaking.

Located on the southern peninsula of Dingley Island, but connected to the mainland via bridge for a short drive to local dining, theaters, galleries, museums and shopping or catch the DownEaster Train to Boston for the day. Nearby Brunswick (according to the Smithsonian Magazine, one of America’s best small towns in 2012) and Bath are only 15 minutes away and historic Portland is only 40 minutes. Although one would wonder why you would ever want to leave.

**NOTE** There is a 2nd home on the estate, not available for rent, where the owner's long retired parents live year round. The two homes are nicely separated, not visible from each other, sharing only the same 3/4 mile long private driveway and the dock, so you might see my family members using the dock to take out our boats (holler and you might get a ride!).
