Think back to the fairy tales you read as a child: many of them started in a cabin in the woods, right? There has always been something magical about a beautiful little house with everything you need in a secluded place in the middle of nature. Now imagine the fairy tale cottage you would want to find as an adult. It probably looks a bit like that house in Maine. Set on over 18 acres of woodland overlooking Camden Harbor and the islands of Penobscot Bay, this Arts and Crafts style home is probably everything you imagine in a fantastic home and yet would wow even the most serious house hunters. experienced among us. “Home is like owning your own private wellness retreat,” says listing agent Brian Wickenden. “The detailing and craftsmanship of this home is unlike any I have ever seen.”

The local artisans who created this home made good use of all the land that came with the property. The land is more like a private park. Throughout the breathtaking outdoor living space you will find manicured gardens, a greenhouse and a pond that recirculates water. In the backyard, a swimming pool with a vanishing edge creates your own personal waterfall, while a hot tub provides respite from cooler days. A heated patio overlooks this space and offers views of the surrounding water, mountains and pine forest.

The house itself reflects the nature that surrounds it in its custom stained glass doors and windows, which enhance the artistry of this space. But the house isn’t just about looks: it also has geothermal systems that allow for heated floors and central air conditioning, and it runs on solar power. There is heated parking for four cars so you can come and enjoy this space even in winter. If it’s too cold outside, indulge in the home theater with a custom painted ceiling, the gym, the sauna or a glass of pinot from the wine cellar. Even the best story couldn’t compete with this dream of a home.
