Step ashore from your deepwater dock to the enchantment of Faraway, an elegant summer estate on Greening Island in Southwest Harbor, Maine. This unique family compound, sitting on 4.4 acres overlooking the Great Harbor, has sold for an undisclosed amount. The property was on the market for $5.95 million. The magnificent fully restored Arts and Crafts main cottage offers 7 light-filled bedrooms, spacious living areas and all updated systems and modern amenities. A variety of open terraces and glass-enclosed porches make for quiet relaxing and easy entertaining in any weather. Just minutes by boat from Southwest, Northeast and Seal Harbors, Faraway commands the eastern promontory of Greening Island, with 1,500-feet of private shorefront.
The estate also features a two bedroom guest cabin, storage sheds, a wonderful tree house and tree swing for kids, and deepwater moorings just off the 130′ pier. Encircled by mature trees to provide privacy, but with lovely views all around to the North, East and South, Faraway is an exceptional summer retreat, perfect for a family seeking a balance of restful island solitude and relaxed entertaining, as well as easy access by water to the vibrant communities of Mount Desert Island. Faraway was on the market for $5.95 million with Maria Thompson of The Knowles Company. Photography and information found on agent’s listing.
