STOCKTON SPRINGS – On a moonlit night, you can lie in bed in the master suite and watch meteor showers through the skylights. Before you, the expanse of ocean appears black, with a dusting of diamonds.

Here, the July 4 evening sky is colored by far-across-the-waters fireworks from Camden, Castine and several other towns. Clear days provide gorgeous blue views due south to Islesboro, North Haven and Vinalhaven, and sometimes east to Cadillac Mountain on MDI.

In spring, at this garden-ringed home, you will see young ospreys just learning to fly, and baby red foxes at play on the back lawn. These and countless other pleasures await the buyer of this stunning custom house, a shingled Maine coast classic designed in the style of Frederick L. Savage.

Built in 2003, the home offers more than 5,000 square feet of three-bedroom, 2.5-bath main living space on two levels; and 2,347 square feet of private-entrance studio space with a kitchen, a media room and a full bath. Heat is radiant throughout. Each space has a splendid home office; high-speed, business-class internet is installed onsite.

The 6.8-acre property on the Cape Jellison peninsula has more than 400 feet of level, rocky-beach ocean frontage at the mouth of Penobscot Bay. Moorings are available at nearby Stockton Harbor.

Highlights are far too many to list, but the home’s stone fireplace (of Deer Isle granite) and its Kennebec Co. kitchen, whose appliances include a six-burner-plus-griddle Wolf gas range, are surely among them.

Not to mention the gentleman’s barn, which has 14-foot doors at each end of its workshop/storage level (a lobster boat was a tenant for two winters) and fully equipped, two-bedroom guest quarters, with a balcony, upstairs.

The home at 64 Kelley Drive, Stockton Springs, will be sold by Tranzon Auction Properties at an on-site auction at 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21. Previews will be held from noon-1:30 p.m. on Sept. 7, and from 1-3 p.m. on Sept. 10; and may be scheduled by appointment.
