“Idletide,” a contemporary shingled cottage style all year long home, built right on Peaks Island’s seashore. With a sweeping panorama that extends southwest towards Portland Harbor, due west over Diamond Pass, and nor westerly to Hussey Sound. Life’s distractions seem to melt away as you watch the many boats sail by and the sunsets are remarkable and often breathtaking. Idletide is filled with natural light and impeccable design qualities with a focus on simplicity and function. With an open first floor plan there are hardwood floors, a fireplace, a great working kitchen, and spectacular views from every vantage. There are three sleeping areas on the second floor, one with a veranda deck overlooking the many hundreds of feet of a tidal sandy beach right at your doorstep. A spacious bathroom with soaking tub and separate shower. The 3rd level is a dream with more sleeping areas all in a pleasing open space. The quality craftsmanship and distinctive details of this home is bar none. The location and site are majestic, directly on the water; it’s located at the end of a quiet dirt lane on a spacious lot filled with lovely gardens, native shrubs, plants and trees.

Proudly offered at $1,100,000.
