Friday Feature: The Lindens in Southwest Harbor, Maine

P1000525Originally built in 1904 as a sea captain’s home with views of the harbor and the Western Mountains of Acadia National Park, this Queen Anne Revival landmark has been elegantly restored and updated over the years. With 8 bedrooms, 7.5 baths, a multitude of porches and balconies, private patio with heated pool, hot tub and guest bungalow, this residence offers gracious harbor-side living year-round.

The Lindens, named for the stately Linden trees that adorn the property, features a diversity of indoor and outdoor living spaces suitable for any lifestyle. A seamless 1995 addition provides options to customize the residence on the main floor to create both formal entertainment areas and private family living spaces. On the upper floors, many of the bedrooms – all with baths - can be combined to create luxurious suites. A heated, finished basement complete with full kitchen and Jacuzzi needs only your imagination to become a wonderful family entertainment area or a discrete apartment with separate entrance. The patio and pool area is ideal as a luxurious private sanctuary or for outdoor entertaining; the quiet pool cottage includes a kitchenette, bedroom, bath and extra sleeping loft, as well as a private deck. And on the third floor the quiet, south-facing penthouse suite, with a huge private deck overlooking the harbor, is just one of the many surprises that await you at the Lindens.
