If it sounds like we are gushing when we talk about Gulls Nest it’s because, well, we are.
One of the most beautiful homes we have ever had the pleasure of offering in both form and function and oh, did we mention the view? Located directly on the open ocean on Rackliff Island in Saint George, it doesn’t get much better than this along the Maine coast. Think bold ocean front, weather beaten rocks, hidden sandy beaches, waves, lobster boats and an ever –changing view thanks to the tide.
A beloved family summer home, Gulls Nest is everything a vacation home in Maine should be. Refined and relaxed all at once with a large, sprawling lawn, a deck that wraps across the front of the house and a private wharf perfect for fishing, boating, swimming, dangling feet in the water…
Gulls Nest has a lot of space but doesn’t feel overwhelming. The front of the house is occupied by the living room and the dining area, both with stunning views of the water and direct access to the deck. The living room has lots of comfy seating, a flat screen television. The dining area has a large table, perfect for family meals and is right off the kitchen. The kitchen is fantastic with endless counter space, high end appliances, 2 refrigerators and a butler’s pantry.
The master suite is on the main floor with amazing views of the ocean. It has a queen bed, a flat screen TV and an en suite bathroom with a deep soaking tub, double vanity and a large, custom walk in shower. There is also a powder room in the hallway outside the master suite.
Upstairs are two bedrooms with a shared full bathroom (you should see the view from this bathroom, seriously). The first bedroom has two twin beds and views of the water and the second has a queen bed overlooking the water and two additional oversized twin beds.
On the bottom floor is a large den overlooking the lawn with plenty of relaxed seating, a large flat screen television, puzzles, books and other fun things to do to relax. There is an additional bedroom on this floor with two twins and a slider to the front lawn. A lovely bathroom with an oversized shower is also on this floor.
Rackliff Island is connected to the mainland via a causeway – you get the coveted experience of island living with the convenience of driving to nearby Rockland, Camden-Rockport, Tenants Harbor and Port Clyde. It really is the best of both worlds.
