This is a one-of-a-kind dream home for us history and landscape lovers!
99 Lighthouse Road on Isle Au Haut in Maine is up for sale.
Built in 1907, this 2,500 square feet 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage sits on 2 acres of gorgeous waterfront property with it very own lighthouse.
The lighthouse is the very reason this place exists. This humble cottage was built to house the lightkeeper and his family while tending to the lighthouse on the remote Penobscot Bay island.
This extremely rare opportunity to own some Maine mariner history is reflected in the steep $1,975,000 price tag.
No word on if the antique cars come with the sale, but included in the property in addition to the 4-bedroom main house, is a 2 bedroom guest cottage, two sleeping cabins, a boathouse and a deepwater dock.
Let’s have a look inside the main house…
Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, the Keeper’s House seems to be frozen in time – a simpler time.
According to the listing, the charming property is being offered turnkey with all furnishings! It was run for many years as an inn and most recently as a vacation rental.
But wouldn’t it be amazing to live here, year round?
The bedrooms are so sweet and old-fashioned… look at the woodstove!
And the views of that fabulous old lighthouse right out the windows…
Can you imagine waking up to this view every morning?
More pretty! This is the stuff that makes House Crazy Sarah’s fickle heart go pitter-patter!
Isle au Haut is a rugged island with a small year-round population and daily boat service from the mainland – located some five miles away. So you wouldn’t be totally isolated.
Approximately half of the island is part of Acadia National Park.
This property is self-sufficient, powered by photovoltaics and a generator with fresh water supplied from the ocean via a reverse osmosis system.
There are actual plumbed bathrooms in the main house but how cute is this old-time loo?
This place is truly amazing!
