The first time I came to Deer Isle was on a beautiful June afternoon.
It seemed as if I had driven into another time and place – every curve in the road, every hill,
every glimpse of the water was a jolt to my heart. I fell in love with the beauty that is Deer Isle…
and over the next few years I fell in love with the community. This place is home.
One of Deer Isle, Maine’s oldest homes (ca.1842) for sale by owner.
Excellent location within walking distance
of Deer Isle village, with limited water views to Northeast Harbor.
A perfect summer or year-round home for art lovers, nature lovers, and those seeking a creative, caring community.
Classic Cape of 7 rooms, including bathroom, large kitchen with custom-made, wood-fired pizza oven, gas range, and dishwasher,
two front parlors and three bedrooms upstairs (one is being used as an office).
The house is currently owned by an artist/jewelry designer. One of the front parlors is her painting and jewelry studio,
and the other has been used as a living room in winter, and a seasonal gallery…
