Crow's Nest is an exceptionally rare waterfront offering, never having been to market. It is one of a few residential homes in Maine designed by Philadelphia architect Edmund Gilchrist. The strategically located 2.2 acre property offers absolute privacy. This 1938 shingle-style 6-bedroom/5-bath cottage was masterfully designed, built, and positioned at the water's edge to allow the formal floor plan to interact with the natural world surrounding it. A remarkable Music Room on the west side of the home completes this large residence where musical performances have taken place over the last 80 years. With over 4,500 sq. ft. of living space placed just a few feet from the shore, Crow's Nest stands alone in its proximity to the water. This historic cottage offers unobstructed water views of the Eastern Way, Bear Island, and the Western Way. 365' of private shorefront are a mix of accessible cobblestone beach and bold rock outcroppings. A detached 2-car garage, mooring, and deeded, shared dock are also included.
