55-Acre Ocean Island Retreat in Magnificent Maine
Located just off the coast of Pleasant Bay, just to the south of the charming town of Addison, Norton Island is a breathtaking 55 acre private island complete with two houses, a boathouse and a generous mainland lot.
Looking out on to the Atlantic Ocean, this magnificent ocean retreat sprawls over 55 acres of diverse terrain – the highlights of which include two sandy beaches, a series of open meadows and lush greenery, comprising of spruce, fir and birch trees as well as a series of colourful cranberry and blueberry bushes.
The island’s main residence is an eye-catching 3,000 sq. ft. property which was constructed just 10 years ago. The terraced decking area opens out onto a large living room, whereas to the east of the property, a south-facing sunroom can be found – just steps away from the island’s spacious and fully equipped kitchen, pantry and “mudroom” with ample space for a washing machine.
Just meters away lies the board and batten guest house. Spread over 1,000 sq. ft. and tucked away between a series of tall fir trees, the cosy living quarters offer a real sense of privacy. As well as a sleeping loft, the guest house also boasts a Russian stove fireplace, a gas stove, a gas refrigerator and stunning sliding glass doors which open on to a large terraced deck with breathtaking ocean views.
A protected mooring can be found towards the north of the island, leading on to a pier, float and beyond on to the island’s two charming homes. A 5 acre mainland lot with boathouse and 300 ft. water frontage is included within the sale, offering ease of access from the Eastern Harbour.
Electricity is readily available and water is sourced by means of a well.
