Single Family Residence, Contemporary,Multi-Level – Gouldsboro, ME



Ocean drama! Bold pink granite deep water ocean frontage! Very contemporary artist’s home designed to inspire creativity and provide dramatic space to display artwork! Almost completed, this is your opportunity to put your own style on your brand new home on the coast of Maine! Designed by Tim Moorhouse, member of the Royal Institute of British Architects and internationally known for his biophilic design approach, having designed for such luminaries in ecological sensitivity as the Dalai Lama, this home epitomizes his philosophy: ‘I believe in the importance of biophilic design, to place a house gently upon its site with sensitivity, and make it feel to belong in its new location, with a strong connection from the interior to the nature that surrounds it.’ About this home he continued, ‘Perched on the bold Maine ocean and overlooking a rocky beach featuring dramatic pink granite, this home is placed on a natural rock outcrop. No blasting was done in order to preserve a beautiful mossy area adjacent to the dwelling. Using this biophilic design approach, this ancient area of moss, along with exposed granite ledges and abundant spruce trees, provided an opportunity to appreciate the natural beauty of the shore. The views are amazing and carry one across Summer Harbor, past Jordan and Ironbound Islands and beyond.’ The home is sited on the lot to capture the picture-perfect view of the cliff face of Ironbound as it faces the Egg Rock Lighthouse. Minutes to Acadia’s Schoodic Point & Winter Harbor with its golfing & yacht club. 2 BR, 2 bath, full basement. The finest quality, natural materials and custom craftmanship are evident in even the tiniest detail of this construction. Radiant floor heat, biophylic cotton fiber & spray foam insulation, Marvin Signature windows thoughtfully placed for airflow. Metal roof pitched for snow to slide off & maintain (great passive solar) heat inside. An architectural garage was planned. Quality. Perfection. Make it yours!
