Inspired by the traditional shingle-style cottages of coastal Maine, Rockweed exemplifies the best of enduring design and contemporary needs. The year-round residence, sited on 4.9± acres with 270’ of shorefront on Somes Sound, includes a formal living room with large fireplace and dining room, a chef’s kitchen, two en suite bedrooms and a second story sitting room in the main house; a guest house has an additional sleeping loft and great room with fireplace. Attention to detail, craftsmanship and quality materials are evident throughout. An attached garage provides parking and additional storage. Located near the charming village of Northeast Harbor on the shores of coveted Somes Sound, the waterfront residence enjoys westerly views, dramatic pink granite outcroppings and a sandy beach perfect for swimming; a large slate terrace provides additional outside areas for entertaining or relaxing. 

Rockweed has extensive landscaping, artistically designed to compliment the residence and its natural setting. Rhododendrons, ferns, colorful perennials, mosses, and large interesting glacial granite erratics enhance the woodland setting. This wonderful property offers complete privacy, a serene forested setting on the sandy shores of the Sound, and a meticulously maintained classic styled residence with many desirable amenities.

Acadia’s carriage and hiking trails are close by, as well as the villages of Northeast Harbor, Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor, all with intriguing restaurants and shops. Golf courses, sailing and tennis clubs are also nearby. Bangor International Airport is an hour away, and Bar Harbor Airport is a mere ten minutes away.
