• Year-round living on the back shore of Peaks Island with sunrise-to-sunset views of wide-open Atlantic Ocean, Cushing Island, and Casco Bay

• Across the street from nearly 2 miles of protected, rocky waterfront and abutting bird habitat; ideal location for cycling, beach combing, and picnics

• Three bedrooms, one bathroom, sealed and heated basement/lower level with separate entrance, possible expansion with town approval

• Secluded yet easy to access: 15-minute ferry ride to downtown Portland

From the first glow of sunrise to the fire of sunset, nature thrives around this Peaks Island retreat. While sitting on the wraparound porch, spot songbirds in the bordering lands. After dark, listen to the waves tumble rocks up and down the protected shorefront.

Set on three quarters of an acre on the back shore of the island, this home is built around its spectacular, unobstructed views. Freshly sanded wide pine floors and whitewashed walls make the open plan common space even brighter. A retro, circular fireplace brings style and cozy warmth on breezy (or freezing!) coastal evenings.

For even more living space, go through a set of French doors to the four-season sunroom with vaulted ceilings and skylights. The three bedrooms are in the back of the home, facing a large stone patio, marshland, and woods. The heated and sealed lower level has its own entrance. With town approval, this space could be finished to meet your needs.

Only 15 minutes via ferry from Portland—then a quick golf cart ride—this property is easy to show to its next owner. Come take a look and imagine yourself surrounded by the beauty of this private island home.
