Incomparable views, modern luxury, and romantic history combine in this rarest of shorefront Bar Harbor properties. Perched on a cliff above a bold, rocky shoreline with crashing waves at its feet, this custom built home set on the former site of an older cottage has been uniquely designed and carefully positioned to maximize and embrace its spectacular views of Frenchman Bay. Its beautifully designed lawn and gardens surround an Italian-style stone terrace with custom, in-ground, heated pool with retractable cover. Very private in nature with borders against Acadia National Park and conservation easements, Seaduced boasts 900 feet of shoreline and 5 well landscaped acres to enhance the stunning features of this extraordinary property.

FIRST FLOOR: From the tiled entryway one is immediately drawn through the foyer and into the Sunroom with stunning views across the Bay to Egg Rock Lighthouse and the Schoodic Peninsula, where built in window seats invite one to sit and enjoy. Designed to catch every aspect of Frenchman Bay, the first floor features a very open, airy style - perfect for entertaining on all scales or for quiet relaxation instead. To the left of the Sunroom is the huge, light filled Great Room with access to the deck with transparent balustrades so that all amazing views north along the coast, past the Thrumcap to the Porcupine Islands and the mountains of the mainland, are unobstructed from every perspective. To the right of the Sunroom is the Dining Room with views to the lighthouse, and access to the south deck overlooking the mature woods of Schooner Head. Past the Dining Room is a fully equipped Kitchen with granite counters, maple cabinetry, Viking range, granite topped island, and many added conveniences such as wine refrigerator, trash compactor and customized built-in wine rack. The pocket doors can be left open for views of the water or closed adding more separation from the Dining Room. A half bathroom is located just off the main entry way.

SECOND FLOOR: A staircase off the main entrance leads to the second story with a small hexagonal gallery over the entry. To the immediate right, a Bedroom with a Full bed and private Bath with glassed-in shower enjoys a bit of water views. With private deck overlooking the lighthouse, a second guest Bedroom with King bed enjoys wonderful water and shoreline views, and a private Bathroom with separate tub and pebble-floored glass shower. Next is the uniquely designed second floor Sunroom with built-in window seat and private Bathroom with handmade tile accents and glass shower. From this space, stairs lead to a lofted Bedroom with Queen bed positioned to catch the sunrise over the Schoodic Peninsula. Last, but not least, you'll find the outstanding Master Suite's unique, customized floating wall with built-in night stands and bookcases that double as a headboard with a King bed. Positioned to take maximum advantage of the northern views up the coast to the distant mainland mountains, this suite offers a sitting area and views to the lighthouse, private deck, Master and Mistress closets, and a full spa Bathroom with double vanity, separate shower and Roman style jetted tub. Conveniently situated near the top of the stairs is the laundry room, well equipped with high-end washer and dryer.

THIRD FLOOR: Another staircase leads to the third floor Game Room with pool table and separate conversation area designed with built-in sofas. A small exercise area in this room enjoys spectacular views of the east face of Champlain Mountain from a circular window.

OUTDOOR SPACES: Two main level decks and two second floor balconies offer splendid areas from which to enjoy the sights and sounds of the bold shoreline below. Custom, in-ground, heated pool with retractable cover offers plenty of open spaces surrounded by beautiful landscaping and main lawn. A smaller lawn area offers a large cedar play set for children.

GUEST HOUSE: Upstairs is a cleverly designed pied-à-terre apartment with deck and views across the gardens and pool area to Frenchman Bay. This space provides two rooms that can be separated by pocket doors. One offers the feel of a living space with daybed and trundle, wet bar and Bathroom with tub. The other serves well as a bedroom with Queen bed and second bathroom with shower. Accessible from outside, a small staff quarters with Queen bed and bathroom sits below the apartment.
