For Sale

135 Hartview Circle, Orland



This rare private wilderness retreat, reminiscent of the idyllic Maine 3-season compound, which existed 100 yrs ago in multigenerational family cottages includes 112 acres and 2,325 ft of frontage on one of Maine’s deepest and clearest lakes. This parcel is part of a much larger 483 +/- acre ”kingdom property” which includes 1.5 miles of water frontage. The entire property is defined by stunning topography, dramatic geologic formations, including two mountains, spectacular cliffs & mature forest canopy, and thousands of feet of private water frontage. At the heart of the property is a 6500 +/- sq ft, award-winning retreat, landscaped & built by Maine’s top architects and builder. Carefully-fitted into nature, blurring where the indoors & the rugged moss & fern-covered forest meet, this home is as welcoming to 6 people as it is to 20. Construction is unrivaled in its attention to detail and craftsmanship. The simplicity and charm overlay commercial-grade security & utilities, designed to minimize time with laundry, dishes, opening & closing. The shoreline provides a private cove for swimming, canoeing & kayaking. Among the places that bring people together and into nature are the boat and sunset/ ”martini” docks, waterfront trail – and the swim rock, hot tub & grill area, which are built into the natural landscape out of local Lucerne granite. Dive from a shoreline boulder into the deep water of Craig Pond. Enjoy the national park-like terrain and habitat. Venture to nearby Great Pond Mountain & look back with wonder at the splendor of this magnificent property. Loons, owls, eagles, osprey, kingfishers, and a full orchestra of songbirds call the thoughtfully-managed sanctuary home. Listed parcel and entire acreage, also available for purchase, includes multiple potential building sites for creating a compound on prime parcels of equal appeal. Far from crowds, but close to Northeast Harbor, Castine, Belfast, & both Bar Harbor & Bangor airports.
