“Probably no other architect of his time did more to change the face of America than Benjamin C. Thompson” – Robert Campbell, Boston Globe. Kelley Point, located in a lush, oceanside setting with private beach, is a spectacular rustic, contemporary-style house that provides a unique opportunity to experience the inspirational design of one of America’s leading architects, Benjamin C. Thompson (known for Boston’s Faneuil Hall Market, Baltimore’s Harborside, and Miami’s Bayside).
Built in harmony with nature, this 3-bedroom home has massive windows to capture stunning scenery. Thompson called this design his “caterpillar house”, referring to the long, zig-zag design that blends in with surrounding trees to be inconspicuous from the water. The house looks out to Big Babson Island, owned by Maine Coast Heritage Trust and open to picnickers and day visitors. There is a guest cottage/bunk-house with kitchenette and bath ideal for children and available in addition to the main house for $300 per week.
