Gull’s Rock, on the shores of the Great Harbor in Northeast Harbor, offers a coveted location in the village, yet quiet and private. This classic residence was designed with many architectural features in the shingle-style tradition for the rusticators who came to enjoy Maine’s perfect summers. Formal living and dining rooms adjoin, and both enjoy the ocean and garden views, as do most of the rooms in the residence.Over the years, the nine-bedroom residence has been beautifully maintained, and has more recently been carefully restored and updated to accommodate the busy lives of modern families. A graceful main staircase flows into the large, welcoming entry foyer, lit by a large Palladian window. All the first-floor rooms enjoy large fireplaces with detailed wood mantelpieces, and several of the rooms have large double doors accessing the open or covered porches. The kitchen, with many gourmet chef’s features, can serve as the center for a large party or intimate meal. Granite counters, a work island, professional appliances, large butler’s pantry with teak counters and flower cutting area are all desirable amenities. An antique tiled fireplace presents a cozy spot to sit, all part of this large sunlit space. The kitchen also opens onto a large sun lit casual dining area with vaulted ceiling, large windows and porches overlooking the gardens and ocean. Many original features were restored, such as marble vanities, hardwood floors, and antique sconces. A separate garage will hold three plus vehicles; two additional rooms and a full bath could be restored for use as a guest area/office or studio. Additionally, there is a charming guest cabin with a large living area, two bedrooms, and a full bath.Attractive plantings and trees surround the property, and a formal, English style perennial garden offers colorful and intriguing patterns, to view from the porches or meander through along the way to the ocean shoreline.
