Penobscot Lookout is a premier mountaintop retreat with 231.2± acres and spectacular, unobstructed, 270-degree views out to Penobscot Bay, its many islands, and Mount Desert and Cadillac Mountain in the distance. The house is an exceptionally well-designed contemporary residence with an open floorplan, and the clean aesthetic compliments the home’s natural setting. Accessed by a private, gated drive, the expansive grounds on Ducktrap Mountain feature a combination of meadows, mature forest, an apple orchard, blueberry fields and established nature trails. The residence is an architecturally stunning steel frame building with over 8,600± square feet of living space that was designed by the current owners in conjunction with Phi Builders & Architects. Floor to ceiling windows in nearly every room promote the views and emphasize the unique mountaintop location.
All of the rooms are generously sized yet intimate, appropriate for small gatherings with family or larger formal events.Pleasing, top-of-the-line accents include exposed steel and wood beams, expert stonework, wood floors, elaborate light fixtures and quartz countertops. High-end amenities and all-new commercial-grade systems offer comfort and convenience.

Comfortable and elegant, this room has a two-story cathedral ceiling, a commanding stone fireplace, and a two-story wall of windows and doors opens to a stone patio with rolling lawn beyond. There are three spacious bedrooms with two-and-a-half baths. Retreat-like amenities include four fireplaces, a personal gym, a sauna, two dog baths, and a playroom.
The home has an attached two-car garage. The second floor, currently used for storage, could be finished and used for additional recreational or family space.
