WINDWARD | Main Residence – Gracious architectural design, exemplary construction, quality finishes and careful maintenance resonates throughout this residence, located on the Western Way in Southwest Harbor. Designed by Roland Sosa in the shingle style tradition, this residence was created on paper and in form by some of the finest craftsmen in the area. The property consists of 3.88 waterfront acres, and enjoys stunning unobstructed, panoramic views of many of the Acadia National Park mountains and offshore islands, including Great Cranberry, Little Cranberry, Sutton and Bear, all part of the dramatic view shed.

Specific notable details throughout the grounds and attractive residence are numerous. The long private driveway leads to a lovely rough-hewn granite walkway to the welcoming front door, providing a semblance of privacy and seclusion. An unusual granite fireplace adds focus to the wonderful living room that opens out to a large granite oceanside terrace. With a somewhat open floor plan, the dining area adjoins the living room, and leads to the well-equipped gourmet chef’s kitchen with ample room for caterers or visiting friends and family. An incredible study provides a rich, quiet environment and a more intimate sitting area. A first-floor en suite master bedroom allows privacy and solitude from the rest of the house and has a lovely fireplace with antique mantelpiece; the master bath also has a sauna.

The second-floor accesses three bedrooms, two of which have decks, and a large bunkroom, with deck access and built-in desk areas. The residence is decorated with a prevailing nautical motif, and the owners’ collection of valuable antiques. The lower, basement level, includes a huge wine cellar, children’s play or TV room, and a carpeted exercise room. There is an unfinished suite over the three-car garage, which could be used as additional recreational or storage space. An automatic generator fully protects the house in the event of an outage. The property now includes deeded use of the deepwater dock on the Western Way. This residence should be considered one of the finest built residences in the area.

HARD AGROUND | Guest Residence – Hard Aground was originally built in the 1950’s and has been very attractively updated and renovated to be used as a guest residence. The year-round residence offers a large living room with fireplace, separate dining room, fully appointed kitchen with high-end stainless-steel appliances and granite counters, four bedrooms and two full baths. A large deck overlooks the open field, with views of the mountains of Acadia, the Western Way and Cranberry Isles. There is also a separate two-car garage. Both Windward and Hard Aground have been impeccably maintained throughout; the property represents an exceptional waterfront estate compound with privacy and incredible views
