Property Description

A beautiful, historic Queen Anne Victorian home commands the corner of beloved Isle au Haut's Head Harbor, a long protected anchorage often described as magical. Nearly every room of the house looks out over a sandy beach with spectacular sea, sky and peninsula views. Built in 1911 for prominent fisherman Gooden Grant, this elegant, iconic home rivals the finest island houses built at the turn of the 20th century. Harborside offers a lovely, covered white-railed porch looking down the harbor and a charming barn at water's edge. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, one of the most striking architectural details of this year-round home is an octagonal turret where the primary bedroom is located. The interior is gracious and bathed in natural light. Delightful rooms boast original wooden floors, exceptional wainscot and additional period details throughout. The newly-renovated kitchen offers sweeping harbor views and a host of modern amenities. The spacious living room is accentuated by four large windows that frame the ocean panorama. Upstairs, you will find two guest bedrooms and a large primary bedroom with two closets, one that is walk-in. Two of the bedrooms have wonderful water views. The walk-up attic offers abundant storage and added living space potential. Off the front porch is a fenced-in garden, complete with workspace and sink ideal for washing vegetables, arranging cut flowers, and cleaning fish caught in the harbor or nearby lake. The matching white-clapboard barn offers three work benches, plenty of storage, and a lovely office/bunkroom on the second floor - all with extraordinary views. Launch a kayak from the beach or comb for sea treasures. The property borders a 72-acre preserve with Acadia National Park just beyond, offering wonderful trails to explore. Freshwater swimming in Long Pond is also close by. Other island amenities include a grocery store, school, post office, a seasonal roadside and year-round passenger ferry service.
