Our Maine Real Estate Picks

~ March 2018 ~


As I was looking for properties to include in this month’s real estate picks, I was intrigued by what appeared to be a little red chapel in a town — er, plantation — I’d never heard of. When I realized the building is actually a 1900s-era lodge crowned with a cupola and that it’s part of a private-island compound that includes an adorable lakeside cabin, boathouse, and “game house” with (what else?) a wet bar, I knew I had to share the listing with you. The retreat is located on South Branch Lake’s Dutch Island in Seboeis, a plantation in Penobscot County with a population of 35! This place kinda puts a new spin on the idea of “getting away from it all,” don’t you think? — Sarah Stebbins, editor, Maine Homes by Down East

This is a recently renovated two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath village home with a newly completed heated studio building accessed off the spacious back deck. The kitchen has a new center island and granite countertops, a pantry, and an adjoining dining room with a door to the deck, studio building, and backyard. The second floor features a master bedroom suite with a full bath, a guest bedroom and bath, and laundry. There’s a wraparound porch on the front of the house, a spacious and partially fenced-in backyard, and new gas stoves in the living room and studio building. The wiring, plumbing, and heating system were upgraded in 2014 when the renovations were completed. This is a fabulous, walk-to-town location and the home is move-in ready. See it on the map.
