176 East Shore

Property Description:

Welcome to your perfect seaside idyll located on the shore of the Sheepscot River not far from the spot where the river joins the Gulf of Maine. From this picturesque location one can explore by sail or motorboat nearby islands and beyond. The sheltered cove provides a peaceful place to moor your boat protected from winds and surf. Just a few steps from the house is your own private dock.

Built as a boat house 80 years ago, the building was rebuilt and converted into a charming cozy 2 bedroom seasonal cottage in 2015. From the cottage located at the water’s edge one can hear the gentle sounds of water lapping at the shore. The open first floor consists of a kitchen dining area and living room where one can sit by the woodstove on a chilly evening while simultaneously taking in the expansive water views. Upstairs the bedrooms and bath have recently been renovated with new walls and wood flooring. Two of the bedrooms and the bath have views of the water. The third floor is a large unfinished attic which can be used as a study and for storage. This property has been popular with summer short term renters who give it glowing reviews. The current arrangement can sleep up to 5.

From the road one enters the upper area of the lot which has an large lawn bordered by bushes and trees which afford privacy for the owners. The lot slopes down to the waterside and the house which is tucked in beside a large apple tree and cannot be seen from the road.

You will be charmed by this unique property with its natural beauty and tranquility. Whether it is the everchanging rhythms of movement of the water, the stars at night or the sighting of seals, porpoises, and shore birds, here you find your own slice of heaven.
