Property Description

“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.

Spectacular Setting

June 17, 2021

The house has a spectacular setting. After stays at places set up only for rental, it was relaxing to stay in a well-loved and personal home. Still, the house could use some TLC repairs, updates, and preparation for renters. The house is at the end of a Maine peninsula with a very simple electricity grid. Perfect for unplugging.
The wi-fi is good enough for checking emails and website; it’s not strong enough for video conference calls. Even phone reception can be intermittent. Good to arrive in the daytime, as the house is at the end of a dirt road, and not easy to find unless you already know where it is. The Brooklin Inn has lovely food; their website has good ideas on things to see and do in the area.

This house needs to be seen in person. It is super private, right on the water, and the architecture is super cool.
You will love the views of Eggemoggin Reach and the Babson Islands.
