Perched on rocky coastline above the waters’ edge overlooking Penobscot Bay, the Camden Hills and a myriad of spruce-clad islands, Stonescape was designed and built with the very finest materials and craftsmanship. Reminiscent of the classic shingle cottages of Coastal Maine, this magnificent estate features many architectural details of the classic era, such as a porte-cochère, turrets, coved ceilings, beadboard wainscoting and interior decorative columns. Granite counters, extensive porches, decks and balconies with stunning views, and a stone-paved terrace with hot tub, grill, and outdoor pizza oven are a nod to more modern amenities. Artistic attention to detail is evident throughout this incredible property.
The focal point of the open living area in this year-round residence is a dramatic rough-hewn local granite fireplace. The open floor plan leads to a dining room with bow-style casement windows, a spacious chef-friendly gourmet kitchen, and wood-paneled library and office. In addition to the graceful main stairway, a custom ironwork passenger elevator rises to the three en suite bedrooms on the second floor. A two bedroom, two-bath guest house includes a full kitchen, fireplace, balcony and living area over a two-car garage. Located on 10.69 acres with 1,374’ of ocean shorefront, Stonescape blends native flora with colorful perennial plantings and is steeped in natural beauty while enjoying total privacy. Windjammers, sailing yachts, lobster boats, eagles, sea birds, seals and porpoise provide ample sightseeing pleasure. Walking paths and moss trails throughout the property allow easy access to neighboring Barred Island Preserve.
