This wonderful property sits majestically at where the waters of Union Bay, Contention Cove, Union River and Pattern Bay all coalesce to provide an expansive and varied waterfront experience. The beachfront is excellent, the setting private and serene, and all is nearby to some of Maine’s most desired locations. It is but a short drive to the Bar Harbor and Acadia region, with easy access to Blue Hill, Ellsworth, and Deer Isle, Stonington and Castine, too! Located in the rural town of Surry, Contention Cove Cottage enjoys the peace and serenity of Surry’s rural community, yet with amenities and attractions close at hand. The surrounding neighborhood provides a charming mix of homes, as well as peaceful roadways to take an evening or morning jaunt. No land line, cell phone reception is fine. The home itself exudes old style, yet with an open spaciousness not usually seen in homes of this age.
A large and open living/dining area overlooks a large stone fireplace to one side, with large plate glass windows capturing the views over the bay to the other, as well as doorway opening to the wrap-around, covered porch. The kitchen is likewise spacious, with added sitting area just off to the side, all overlooking the back yard…..along with ocean views from the door which opens to the wrap-around porch. There is a spacious main level master bedroom and full bath, as well as 3 additional bedrooms and full bath on the second floor. For those looking for an old-style, oceanfront Maine Cottage with a convenient location to enjoy the amenities of both the Acadia and Blue Hill region, look no further!
