Property Description:

Prominently located in Somesville, the historic heart of Mount Desert Island, this classic colonial is majestically poised overlooking Mill Dam and Pond with views of Somes Harbor and beyond to the magnificent mountains of Acadia!   Year-round, impeccably restored and updated, this gracious 4-bedroom, 4-bath home has much to offer, including a gourmet kitchen and custom cherry woodwork throughout. An attached 2-bedroom, 2-bath apartment with separate entrance is a nice extra as is the full house generator. The home is well appointed and can be purchased furnished.

The Homestead is beautifully landscaped and has an irrigation system. Outside space includes a spacious bluestone patio, screened porch and a 2nd story deck adds an additional area where you can enjoy water and mountain views without having waterfront taxes! Private community access to Somes Sound for boating, kayaking and swimming is readily available.   The Homestead was originally built in 1830 by John Somes, son of the first permanent settler of Somesville, and is as significant today as it was then.

Somesville was the first village settled on Mount Desert Island in 1761 and is now a National Historic District. Walking or driving through the village is like stepping back in time, with sights of beautifully preserved examples of early New England architecture and a charming millpond. The year round population of about 800 residents enjoy close proximity to Acadia National Park, Echo Lake, Long Pond, and a public boat landing on Somes Sound. A wonderful community, Somesville is an ideal traditional New England community.
