16 Glidden Ledge Road, South Bristol, ME 04568

Glidden Ledge Road is a spectacular waterfront property with 13.35 acres and stunning panoramic views over Fitch Cove and the Damariscotta River to the north, out to Glidden Ledge, and down river to the south. The property’s buildings include a top-of-the line architect-designed residence, a three-car garage, a charming guest cottage, and an attractive shed. The appealing landscape has been cultivated over the years to include walking paths around the property, mature flowering gardens, outdoor recreational spaces, and there is a special point of land with a small island. 2,716 feet of shorefront is a haven for native wildlife and varies from areas of unique ledge to several coves and a small pocket beach. Accessed by a long winding drive, the property is surrounded by several conserved land parcels ensuring its privacy is not diminished by development.

The main residence combines an excellent design with a comfortable and sophisticated layout, top-quality materials, and high-end systems. Carefully selected finishes include Hubbardton Forge light fixtures, custom cherry bathroom cabinets, an assortment of unique granite counters, and red birch floors. The four-bedroom home features a main-floor primary bedroom suite and water views from nearly every room. Distinguishing characteristics such as a massive chimney cap and historic bricks, from the old factories that once populated the peninsula, add to the story of the property.

The heart of the home is a stunning two-story, Douglas fir, timber frame great room with a coffered ceiling and a two-story stone fireplace. Designated spaces delineate a living room, areas for both formal and informal dining, and a gourmet chef’s kitchen with professional appliances. Custom cabinets, a butcher block central island, and luxurious granite counters with a granite farm sink elevate the preparation of meals to an activity that can be shared with the whole family. Off the great room is an impressive 750 square foot screened porch that spans the width of the house. Framed in Douglas fir, there is a substantial stone fireplace and a dramatic wood-framed ceiling. The porch integrates nicely into the natural setting and a large firepit for evening gatherings is centrally located off the screened porch on the point.

The three-car garage is attached to the house via a covered breezeway and finished with mahogany wood doors, there is unfinished storage space above. The charming, seasonal guest cottage combines versatile living space with interesting architectural elements, such as attractive repurposed double-hung-sash windows and a whimsical cupola. The main floor has two bedrooms and one-and-a-half baths, and upstairs is an open living room with a small kitchen and wonderful rustic details. A storage shed incorporates the same large windows as the guest cottage to create appealing proportions, and it is ideal for storing bicycles, tools, and equipment.

The dock system with a ramp and three floats offers access to the scenic boating up and down the Damariscotta River, or simply enjoy the sunsets from an Adirondack chair. Intimate coves create excellent swimming holes and protected water for kayaking or standup paddleboarding. Glidden Ledge, exposed and accessible by foot during mid-to-low tide, is popular with seals who come to sun themselves on the nearby rocks.
