Property We Covet

If you’ve ever dreamed of living in a Maine postcard, now’s your chance. The 1856 Blue Hill Bay Lighthouse, located on a private island with panoramic views from Isle Au Haut to the mountains of Acadia, is for sale. The building’s last lighthouse keeper was Roscoe Chandler, who manned the station from 1924 to 1932, raising a family and cows there. (At low tide in the spring, the animals were walked to nearby Flye Island, where they grazed through the summer.) Now a private residence, the property features two white-sand beaches and a sandbar, quaint, cottagey interiors, and a wide front porch for keeping watch over the happenings on the water.
