Lush, verdant fields of native ferns surround the aptly named Bracken Cottage set amongst an old growth hardwood forest, preserving its' quiet setting on the banks of Penobscot Bay. With 1,710' of shorefront and 32 acres, Bracken Cottage presents the type of privacy that few properties can provide.Designed by Bernhard and Priestley, this attractive shingle cottage blends traditional architectural elements with the more current desires of country living; an homage to understated elegance. The owner fondly refers to it as ''a new house with an old soul''. The property is being offered fully furnished in an elegant country style, but always with an eye to an easy, comfortable ambiance.The year-round main residence has a large open living room, with French doors to the terrace outside, Douglas Fir beamed ceiling, long cushioned window seats and a wood burning fireplace. Stately beveled columns define bookshelves that frame the tall paned windows; several game tables and intimate reading nooks compliment the attractive setting. A cozy library adds an additional quiet retreat. The cook's kitchen has top of the line appliances, and opens to the dining area, flanked by a raised wood burning fireplace to enjoy during cooking and during meals.Over the two-car garage is a large, seasonal guest cottage, with full bath and efficiency kitchen; a propane fireplace adds a warming atmosphere. Many additional amenities abound throughout the property, including a sunny screened porch, full house generator, colorful perennial plantings, and woodland trails that meander throughout the tranquil forest and along the shoreline.
