This spectacular 24-acre peninsula with nearly half a mile of shorefront is on the market for the first time in 173 years. The peninsula has a stunning granite shoreline, protected deep water anchorage, meadows, hand dug wells, a small pond, old stone walls and granite foundations, and a variety of trees including antique apple trees and established white pines. ''The Murch House'' is located on the southern end and is the primary residence and only stone dwelling on Vinalhaven. It is on the National Register of Historic Places, and was built c. 1850 by William Murch for his son Isaac using granite from Starboard Rock, a nearby land preserve. The Murch family were fishermen and subsistence farmers who lived simply off the land. The house was last occupied year-round in 2012. Near the stone house is the antique barn and, at a slightly higher elevation, an electrified camp. All three buildings have unobstructed views of Winter Harbor/Seal Bay and their protected islands. The bungalow, which is on the eastern tip, has two bedrooms and breathtaking elevated views of Isle Au Haut Bay Bay and Deer Isle. Near the bungalow are incredible granite outcroppings that are similar to those located on Starboard Rock. A circular walking path connects all the buildings and also provides an opportunity to enjoy the diverse landscape, elevations, and beautiful vistas. This is an ideal property for a family compound, preservationist, boater, and anyone interested in historic homes. (Seller is seeking a conservation-minded buyer. Light subdivision restrictions will likely transfer)
