Chimerique is a property where words often fall short when trying to explain and describe. The level of craftsmanship and design is awe-inspiring and rivaled only by the stunning location, overlooking outter Tenants Harbor, Southern Island and the islands of Eel Grass Cove. Situated almost directly on the water’s edge. Chimerique is private and peaceful, protected by stately pine trees embellished by thoughtful, natural landscaping.
Chimerique is a newly constructed property located on the Shores of Harts Neck, a section of Tenants Harbor which has been home to summer residents for decades. Minutes to Tenants Harbor Village and a 5 minute drive to Port Clyde Village make this an idea location for those who wish to explore the area. Harts Neck is a dead-end road so many like to bike, walk and jog on this winding, tree lined street. The house also has the use of a private, shared dock, a six minute walk from the front door, for those who want to kayak, swim or fish.
Although the house is newly constructed, the classic and high level of detail make you feel as if you have walked into a well-preserved summer home loved by generations. The configuration of the house makes it impossible to forget you are sitting right on the water – large windows, French doors and a two-thirds house-long deck with a cable railing system all work to maintain the endless views.
The master bedroom is on the first floor and occupies the left wing of the house – French doors open onto an upper level deck shared by the master bed room and kitchen, offering fantastic views of the water. The master offers a queen bed, lovely furnishings and a private bathroom with double sinks, a jetted soaking tub and a large, custom walk-in, tiled shower with a rain head. This bathroom has heated towel racks and a bidet.
A small hallway, with direct access to the deck separates the master from the kitchen.
The kitchen is a lovely melding of old and new – think traditional design blended with high end appliances. The kitchen has a deep sink, stylestone granite countertops, a large peninsula for food prep or entertaining during meal prep, a gas stove top, wall oven, dish washer and warming drawer. The kitchen overlooks a small, informal dining area with seating for four – this is a cozy section of the kitchen, perfect for breakfast. There is also a wet bar with an icemaker.
Off the kitchen is the laundry room with full capacity washer and dryer and the most amazing antique soap stone utility sink.
The great room houses the formal dining room and the more formal family room. The family room is sunken with plenty of seating situated around a large fireplace and a large flat screen television. This room also opens onto the largest part of the deck, furnished with lots of outdoor seating.
The downstairs sections of the second wing of the house has a half bath, two bedrooms and a full bath. The first bedroom has a Queen bed and overlooks the waterside of the property. The second bedroom has two twin beds and is located on the inside section of the property with peek-a-boo views of the water from one window. All bedrooms on the first floor have room darkening shades. The shared bathroom has a tub/shower combination.
Upstairs is what we call the Bunk Room. It is a wonderful, well planned space. A cathedral ceiling space with a closet/partition with two double beds on the back of the house and two twins situated under the eves on the common area side of the room. This is a semi-private section of the common area. On the other side is a large family room area with couches and chairs and a large, flat screen television.
Off the common room is a large bathroom/dressing room with a claw-foot tub with a shower, two vanities as well as a toilet and bidet.
The common room is a great place for a family to gather after the sun has set, for kids to play while the adults visit downstairs or for a entirely separate living area for those who want their own space.

While some properties do have internet connection that is more “modern”, many properties are in locations that only allow for DSL or satellite connection which can be slower and at the mercy of weather, whole network connectivity and the like.
Please be aware SummerMaine cannot guarantee the speed or accessibility of the internet at any of our properties during your stay.
