Tucked behind a rise at the edge of an old blueberry field lies a gorgeous East Blue Hill home. This contemporary home is built in the passive-solar style, with masses of insulation (R-40 walls, R-60+ roof), radiant floor heat, and giant triple-pane windows from Germany that face due south. A 26-panel, 7,800-watt (7.8 kW) solar array is mounted on the roof. The open-concept first floor is lined with floor-to-ceiling library shelves and boasts three large windows overlooking a garden. The kitchen has an enclosed pantry. On the first floor there is also an office/bedroom, which is sound proofed for late sleepers. It adjoins the first-floor bath, which has a cedar-lined shower. The second floor has a large, airy, bright master bedroom, well suited for a king-sized bed, with a desk space, and walk-in closet. The pine-lined second-floor bath has an antique claw-foot tub. A large crawl space lined with shelves provides excellent storage and has a built-in cold cellar. A small one-room cabin on the property makes a good three-season study spot or writer’s room. Several paths meander through the woods to McHeard Stream, which hugs the property on two sides and can be heard gurgling when the windows are open. The 6.36-acre property is situated on the edge of East Blue Hill village. A sweeping field next door is under conservation, maintained by Blue Hill Heritage Trust. It is a five-minute walk to a small village playground and the town dock. Curtis Cove (a beach and swimming area) is a 10-minute walk. Blue Hill is a picturesque, year-round community on the coast of Maine close to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. See it on the mapListing agent: Jillson Knowles, The Christopher Group, LLC
