74 River House Road, Castine, ME 04421
This elegant seaside home is sited high above the Bagaduce River with breathtaking views towards Castine Harbor, Hatch Cove, and the distant hills of Brooksville. Wildflower meadows stretch down to the shore, where 1000 feet of deep-water frontage leads to Penobscot Bay and the open Atlantic Ocean. This architecturally-designed home is clad in rustic cedar shakes and boasts contemporary features such as high ceilings, expansive glazing, and a grand fireplace with two firewood elevators to bring wood from the basement right to the fireplace. The spacious kitchen is perfect for catering or entertaining large parties. The large master suite includes walk-in closets, its own office, and a spacious bathroom with two sinks, a jacuzzi tub, and a walk-in shower. The second and third bedrooms each have their own private bathrooms. The space above the garage was used as an art studio and has running water. It could be converted into an in-law apartment or fourth bedroom. This home has a large basement with plenty of storage. Other amenities include a propane standby generator, and a whole-house vacuum system. In addition to the attached two-car garage, there's a detached one-car garage, which is perfect for tractor or boat storage. The owner has had several deep-water moorings in the past, and a dock or pier is a possibility. There is also the potential for a second waterfront building site on the property to the East of the house near the gazebo.
