Property Description

Steeped in tradition and luxury, House Island stands alone among coastal properties throughout New England. Just minutes from Portland's bustling waterfront by boat, this property is iconic Maine. Enjoy 12 acres with 3,980 feet of usable ocean frontage and easy access to multiple sandy beaches. Adjacent to Peaks Island, Cushing Island and the mainland, House Island boasts year round accessibility. A 375-foot deep water pier, dock, and float system is compatible with boats of most every size and includes a ferry platform. Zoned by the City of Portland as Island Commercial, the new owner has the flexibility to enjoy the magical beauty and seclusion for a personal private compound, or to capture the economic benefits of a prospective commercial hospitality venue. With three renovated cottages and solar barn, complete with caretakers quarters, there is plenty of room to entertain guests in grand style. Cap's Lodge is the largest of the cottages with 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and a fireplace. This impeccably renovated 4000 sq ft home offers ocean views from every room. Christina's World is an enchanting 3,200 sq ft three bedroom, three bathroom cottage complete with two gas fireplaces and a large eat in kitchen. Sunrise Cottage is a memorable spot to enjoy a sunrise, moon rise and sunsets, as well as a front row seat to weekly sailing races and lobstermen pulling their pots. It is a cozy and charming 900 sq ft with two bedrooms and one full bathroom. The lower level of the Solar Cottage acts as convenient storage for kayaks, golf carts, boating equipment and other outdoor toys, and is also the home to the solar energy powercell. As a bonus, the Solar Cottage includes an upper level 600 sq ft one bedroom caretaker's apartment with a combination living/dining/kitchen area and full bath. This extraordinary property, its upgrades, amenities, and privacy make it a one of a kind opportunity to be part of Portland's history and enjoy Maine's coastal living at its best!
