1940s Somes Sound Cottage! Woodwork galore! 2.1 acres in Maine

$5,500,000 | 1947 | 2,884 Sq. Ft. | 5 Beds | 1.5 Baths | 2.1 Acres
480 Sound Dr, Mount Desert, ME 04660

Sited majestically at the head of Somes Sound on Mt Desert Island, Shutters on The Sound offers dramatic views of Somes Sound, flanked by the stately mountains of Acadia National Park, and accented by the rolling meadows of conserved lands. Views from the property have attracted both photographers and artists alike, in their attempt to capture its allure.  

Built in the 1940s, this year-round, shingle-style Maine cottage offers the warmth of wood detailing such as beam ceilings, paneled walls, and wood flooring throughout. A sun-filled waterside enclosed porch provides ample opportunity to bask in the warmth of the sun as you take in the breathtaking views. A first-floor bedroom, as well as four additional bedrooms on the second floor provide space for friends or family members.

For generations real estate along Somes Sound has been highly sought after for being a prime location for waterfront estates, with many limited to a westerly view across the sound. Shutters on the Sound offers a rare opportunity with its southerly view down the length of the Sound, framed by the mountains of its eastern and western shores. Each day starts with a fresh canvas as the sun and tides work their magic on the mountains and waters of the sound, creating an ever-changing picture that warms the soul.
