Situated 5.5 miles up the Bagaduce River from Penobscot Bay and Castine, this one-of-a-kind home sits on 12-acres of woodlands and fields with 600' of waterfront on the dynamic Johnson Point Narrows. Harbor seals swim through the ever-changing tidal current to sun themselves on nearby granite ledges. The well-maintained dock features a 10' x 36' float, making for easy boating access to explore the diverse wildlife of this unspoiled estuary. This high quality habitat is heavily used by migrating waterfowl, wading birds, and other wildlife. Bald eagles nest within view at a nearby island.In 1980 the original log home was lovingly restored, and in 1998 a contemporary addition was created to provide spacious, open living/kitchen/dining with a fabulous master suite with a sitting area above. Then, in 2010, a cavernous 2,500 sq. ft. art studio was constructed that would be perfect for any number of home businesses or and recreational activities. Ample natural light from the large clerestory windows above is complimented by additional linear, full-spectrum fluorescent and LED track lighting to create a soothing even light for any activity. The cottage at the waterfront provides a spectacular close up view of the river and is ideal for guests to totally 'let go' and take in the sights and sounds of the river wildlife and moving water. In addition to the rolling lawns and various gardens, there are two wood sheds, a lawnmower shed, garden shed and a well-established campfire area, plus the suspended two-story tree house. All are well-maintained and provide special spaces for enjoyment. This is your chance to move to a totally private and serene setting while still being able to have a large home business or studio on the water. With 4,900 sq ft in the main house, a radiant-floor heated 2,500 sq ft. studio, plus the 284 sq ft cottage, for a total of almost 7,500 sq. ft. of heated living space, this property is something special.
