As you get out of the car, you are immediately drawn to the 840 sq. ft. wraparound screened porch that runs the length of the home and faces the water. You imagine endless evenings entertaining family and friends, celebrating the summer sky. Two bedrooms on the first-floor offer guest space or creative studio/office space, your favorite of the two has access to the screen porch. The cathedraled primary bedroom and bathroom occupy the 2nd floor. An outdoor pavilion doubles as covered parking and a spot for parties. Nights are cozy with the warm colors and smell of wood. Hammered copper surrounds the RSF Opel wood burning fireplace in the living room, adjacent walls offer built-ins for a library and a three-dimensional wall collage constructed from white and red oak beams salvaged from a shipyard. Birch cut from the property appears on the stairway and as columns between the dining and living areas. The kitchen has a modular component, one set of cabinets can either remain in an L shape for intimate gatherings, or be moved to create an island for food prep. Wow elements include a cast-zinc countertop and cabinetry insets with birch bark. The foyer and bathrooms feature a tile you haven’t seen before, the end-grain pieces of wooden beams. Douglas fir, Australian cypress, and clear maple flooring are used on the ceilings to create a dramatic and clean modern cabin look. The finished daylight walk-out basement boasts workout and play space. The windows, doors, poured form foundation, systems and insulation meet high efficiency standards. This rustic-modern home is built for low maintenance so you can spend more time doing the things you love. The roof is metal and the hunter green trim is the only thing painted on the home. Landscaping features native plants and is in keeping with the surroundings, the entry border garden is accented by the root systems of two fallen trees covered in moss. One of the root systems doubles as a privacy panel for the outdoor shower. Granite stones found on the property create a natural walkway to the front door, as if there before the home. Rock outcroppings and ferns dot the landscape. A heron can be seen fishing in the estuary, and you’re not sure, but you may have just heard the rare, enchanting song of the hermit thrush. You have discovered the Maine cottage of your dreams and you cannot wait to make it your home and swim and kayak from its shore.
