Located just 90 mins from New York City, on the coast of Maine, sits Potato Island, a private oasis with a character refurbished four bedroom house originally built in 1912.
The captivating home stands at the southern end of the island with sweeping views of coastal New England from its wrap around porch. Accessible by boat from Stony Creek, the island has a deep water mooring and ample space for a helicopter for a 25 min jaunt into Manhattan.
On the lush grounds, guests can enjoy a lap and sunbake by the pool at the northern end of the Island or take a more secluded dip in the custom hand-cut granite hot tub nestled into the rocks beyond the house, offering magnificent sunset and seascape views.
The renovated home boasts four bedrooms and two bathrooms with an expansive master suite with steam shower and jacuzzi. On the ground floor, the dining room and entertaining areas feel the warmth from a fieldstone fireplace while restored period features preserve the home’s original character.
A new kitchen with state of the art appliances, breakfast bar and adjacent nook provides the perfect setting to enjoy the early morning serenity. Energy consumption is kept to a minimum with the use of a solar energy platform that supplies electricity to the house and there is a propane fired generator to supply power to the charging station as needed.
Potato island was reportedly first listed by Christie’s International Real Estate for $US7.35 million back in 2014 and is now on the market for $US4.9 million. Christie’s has the listing.
