A sprawling island retreat in Falmouth, ME, could be all yours for $7.5 million.
The 10,849-square-foot mansion sits prominently on one end of Clapboard Island. Another home sits at the other end, with conservation land abutting the two parcels.
Set on 22 acres, the island home is just a short boat ride from the mainland.
“The privacy here is just amazing,” says listing agent Kristina Keaney, of Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty. “There are only three lots on the island, with one of them being a conservation preserve of about 14 to 15 acres. I love how secluded it feels, but you can just look across the mooring field and see the mainland.”
The 13-bedroom estate sits along an incredible 3,200 feet of ocean frontage that offers breathtaking views of Casco Bay.
“Inside, it is just so stunning,” Keaney says. “I am awed by each detail. For example, there is an arched hallway under the grand staircase that is just beautiful. It is really well done and has a coastal New England feel to it, but it is also homey and classic.”
The wood-paneled living room has exposed-beam ceilings; a stone, floor-to-ceiling fireplace; and arched doorways. Even better, it’s freshly painted and move-in ready.
“I could see the property being a place to have a multigenerational family reunion of sorts,” Keaney says. “There are great places to gather together, but each family could also have their own separate space. The enormous dining room would be a great gathering spot, with its fireplace. It opens up with a Dutch door to a porch, so you get these incredible sea breezes all around you.”
The well-restored home does come with a couple of caveats: There’s no air conditioning, and heating is limited.
“It’s a seasonal property that we think is designed best to use from April to November,” Keaney notes. “It would be a great second home for someone looking to go south for the winter. There is no AC, but the attic hatch opens to a widow’s peak that lets in cool breezes.”
Some of the upstairs bedrooms have fireplaces, while others have access to a private terrace.
The property also boasts a three-bedroom guest cottage, barn, boathouse, and play house. Plus, the land includes a deep-water dock and mainland parking for easy transport back and forth to the island.
Seafaring folk, take note: You’re on your own when it comes to water transport. There is no ferry service available, so you’ll need a boat or water taxi to transport you to and from the mainland. The island is just 10 minutes from Falmouth and about 20 minutes from downtown Portland, Keaney notes.
“I see the next buyer as a multigenerational someone who wants a classic coastal home to share with their family and friends,” she says. “It feels like a majestic property, yet it is so comfortable and inviting.”
