The truest sense of a warm home from the heart of its builder - the vision of an artist with love, creativity, and ingenuity in every detail. Perfectly sited in a sunny clearing on a private 5.6 acre wooded lot on Appleton Ridge sits a thoughtfully designed hand-built one-of-a-kind 1300+ sq ft year-round cottage, separate garage with room for animals and potential studio or living space above, a 10 person sauna, chicken coop, 3 fire pits, and the sweetest pond. The layout of the home allows for flexibility: enter through the antique door into a post and beam constructed foyer and then into the show-stopper kitchen/great room with rich natural light, high end appliances, and wood ceiling beams inspired by the underside of the many mushrooms found on the land. Also on the first floor is a full bath, and a cheerful room with vaulted ceilings and a loft that could be a perfect living room, studio or first floor bedroom. Off of this room is a deck leading to a three season porch and the sunny backyard and gardens. Upstairs there's another bedroom and a big open loft space that invites creativity. Everywhere you look you see beautifully integrated materials found on site or nearby, and meaningful salvaged pieces: the big hand hewn post in the kitchen was a tree on the property, corrugated metal from an old barn in Appleton is used on the exterior of the home and in the kitchen, every floorboard was hand planed with a small vintage planer, counter tops are cut from stone from the farm right down the road, and a church stained class window is a door to the upstairs bedroom. The ultimate peaceful retreat situated along a quiet country road with open fields, glorious long views and sunrises, and nearby swimming, hiking, and nature preserves - yet under 15 miles to the coastal towns of Belfast and Camden. Imagine. This could be yours!
