Hope Island In Maine Perfectly Melds Ultimate Privacy And Nearby Urban Vibrancy On 86 Self-Sustaining Acres

Secluded Retreat for Year-Around Living Includes a Tavern, a Chapel, a Boathouse, Stabling for Horses, with Sea Life on Full Display and Portland a Mere 20-Minutes Away Offered at $7,950,000

Casco Bay, Maine – Truly one of Maine’s most extraordinary estates, Hope Island is a unique world unto itself. With the classic Maine setting of rocky coastline and crashing surf, this 86-acre island also offers a protected anchorage and sand beaches along its 11,050-feet of waterfrontage. The sweeping and elevated views are ever changing from vistas over the Atlantic Ocean to passing boats of every description.

During the past twenty-four years, no expense was spared in creating this magical island kingdom. The main residence, with numerous guest and staff dwellings, provide comfortable year-round accommodations. A substantial boathouse and deep-water pier allows convenient access to this region’s world-renowned boating activities. Numerous barns, paddocks and storage buildings can support a wide variety of livestock and poultry. Hope Island even features a 550-square-foot tavern, with custom millwork and stained-glass ceiling fixtures, as the perfect entertainment venue.

“The name Hope Island fully captures the extraordinary lifestyle that the estate offers,” says listing agent John Saint-Amour of LandVest, an Affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate. “Everything you could possibly ever need is here but you are not isolated. Portland offers theatre, the arts and fine dining, the full array of cultural outlets.”

The 11,000-square-foot main residence offers three bedrooms, with two guest houses adding an additional eight bedrooms. Both the barn and boathouse include apartments for staff. The chapel, just under 500 square feet, is appointed with stone flooring, arched windows, pews, a raised alter, and a 19-foot cathedral ceiling.

The island’s extensive landscaping includes lighted concrete roadways, stone walls, perennial gardens and eight ponds for wildlife. Hope Island claims Portland, 25 minutes by boat, as its “mainland base” with every desirable amenity that one could ask.
