Located south of Dark Harbor Village with stunning views over East Penobscot Bay, East Bay is a beautifully designed and skillfully crafted waterfront home built in the tradition of a grand coastal Maine estate. Privately sited on 4.2± acres with 390 ± feet of rocky beach shorefront and a formal entrance, the residence was first built in 2000 as a large post-and-beam barn / garage with an apartment. It was expanded two times, the final renovation and redesign based on the renowned architecture of Royal Barry Wills, and the top-quality house now features over 10,000± square feet of living space reminiscent of a historic Islesboro summer cottage with contemporary amenities. The rooms are open and inviting with comfortable and elegant living spaces defined by high ceilings, multiple fireplaces, exposed-wood beams and numerous windows, all with water views. The extensive landscaping combines formal gardens with fields of wildflowers that firmly anchor the residence in its waterfront setting and the broad views encompass the islands of the eastern Bay, North Haven and the open ocean in the distance to the south.
