If you sail or motor through Cape Elizabeth’s Broad Cove, the plot at 0 Pilot Point Road will likely elicit a double take. Situated between gracious homes on a precipitous granite cliff, the 1.14-acre wooded property rises up like a mirage induced, perhaps, by sunlight dazzling on cobalt water. In fact, the land has been owned by the Galos family of Kennebunk for more than 30 years but was never developed — a rarity on this stretch of coast. Now the site is being offered for sale.
Inside, sweeping mountain and water views in the expansive, second-floor living area, newly renovated kitchen, and cozy sunroom are juxtaposed with intimate forest and garden scenes visible in the rear library and lower-level rooms. From every vantage point, you are hard-pressed to spot another house, thanks to Fasoldt’s thoughtful siting and the Fernalds’ 2005 gift of 86 acres at the summit of Bald Mountain to the Coastal Mountains Land Trust.
