Spectacular Ocean Front property -- Like Owning the Atlantic!

Located in: Bristol
This fanciful, one-of-a kind home surfs the edge of the shore! Giant windows look out over wild open ocean to Monhegan Island and beyond. One of the most desirable spots on one of New Harbor/Pemaquid Point's most exclusive and private shorelines. Hidden away off a dirt road, verdant pine and sea-salt perfumed grounds overlook ocean bluffs (w/ ample lawn for kids to play catch!). Below, your own expansive wonderland of rocky ocean front boasts immense tidal pools, a freshwater stream and flat ledges for sunning or seating your very own lobster cookout! Inside, 'Seachange' is open, light and airy with intriguing peaks and angles and two-story windows front and back. A magnificent rock fireplace opens to the living and dining/kitchen areas. A large screened porch (with convenient pass-through window) is the perfect place to eat, read, and relax. Watch lobster boats pull in their traps, observe the copious wildlife that populates the shore and sea, and let the sounds of the surf lull you to sleep in the hammock. A winterized 'wing' of the house has separate bath, efficiency kitchen, work desk and sleeping areas affording very private separation from main house.

The living room offers expansive, 180-degree ocean views from seating around the coffee table---perfect for a cocktail-hour gathering, and equally inviting for an afternoon siesta or snuggling by the fire with a book. The open kitchen and dining room look out over a fresh-water stream that babbles through the pine forest just behind the house. The dining table expands to seat 10. A pass-through window from the dining/kitchen area to the screened porch is handy for serving blueberry pancake breakfasts. On the porch you can enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the lobster boats bring in their haul. A 'prow'-like sun deck opens off the screened porch and juts out over the shoreline.

Climb winding stairs to a master bedroom with queen bed that affords a crow's nest view from Yellowhead to the Seal Ledges and out to Monhegan Island. Write postcards (or, okay, check your email) at the built-in desk area. Behind the master bedroom is a lovely, shady bedroom (two twin beds) overlooking treetops and the freshwater creek. Tucked under the eaves is a snug bathroom with tub/shower and skylight.

The attached apartment wing (with a separate outdoor entrance but also accessible to the interior of the main house) houses a sleeping area with twin beds and a sitting area with a full-sized sleeper sofa, separated by a stone chimney with wood stove. It also features a built-in desk area, bath with shower, washer and dryer, kitchenette with sink, full-sized refrigerator, microwave oven, and toaster oven. This private retreat is perfect for guests, a couple wishing extra privacy, or those with restricted mobility.

The house has a furnace to take the chill off early spring and fall mornings… and the 'small change' apartment is 'winterized' with a wood stove and electric heaters.

AMENITIES: Seachange has a fully equipped main kitchen (open to dining and living room) plus a separate bar/prep kitchen with 2nd refrigerator and sink in attached wing. Washer and dryer, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, coffeemaker, 3 telephones, fans (including ceiling fan), cable TV/VCR, WIFI internet, CD/tape player, portable dehumidifier, charcoal grill, lobster cookout equipment.

ACTIVITIES: There's plenty to do at Seachange. You can explore the coastal tide pools, birdwatch, sunbathe on the rock ledges, play catch on the lawn, or fish right off the docks or walk down to nearby picturesque Back Cove, or bike the adjacent roads and trails. Or, simply relax on the porch, and appreciate the sounds and sights of the ocean.
AREA: The New Harbor/Pemaquid area offers great hiking, sea kayaking, boating, boat cruises, antiquing, historic sites (Fort William Henry, Colonial Pemaquid Restoration in immediate area) and many fine restaurants. Public golf course nearby. Pemaquid Lighthouse Park and Pemaquid Beach (sand) are located within a short drive or bike ride. Short drives to Damariscotta, South Bristol, Round Pound and Christmas Cove. Day trips to Monhegan Island out of New Harbor.
