Seventeen wooded acres surround this historic Victorian on popular North Lubec Road. This original period home sits on a knoll looking across the road to views of Johnson’s Bay. The home still features original moldings, pocket doors, hardwood floors, fireplace and ornate mantel and more. A full 3 stories with an alternate master bedroom suite on the third floor. A heated sun porch makes a great place to relax and leads into the main house.
Inside you will notice the wood floors and original trim. A galley kitchen is located off a breakfast nook with a butler pantry into the dining room which the current owner uses for an office. A double parlor is currently utilized as a large dining room and front living room with a beautiful working fireplace. The spacious front hall with sweeping staircase was once used as the main entrance. The original double doors still feature beveled and etched glass with the original owners’ initials. A small powder room with sink and flush was installed under the stairs.
The second floor has a nice landing with an area created as a reading nook or small office. Views of Johnson’s Bay can be seen from there and two bedrooms. The third floor has been finished creating a full bath, sleeping area, small office area and a good size sitting area with views out over the bay.
Perennial gardens surround the home and could use some work. Themed steppingstones adorn the walkway to the small porch on the front. Enjoy the evening breezes relaxing on the porch or the sound of the songbirds visiting the rose bushes in the front.
The town of Lubec is a small fishing village on the border between Maine and Campobello Island Canada. Lubec has approximately 90 miles of coastal waterfront property. It is the most easterly town in the continental United States and West Quoddy Head Lighthouse is sited on the most easterly point where most believe it receives the first light of day in the U.S. Formerly home to a large sardine industry, the town now plays host to the Regional Medical Center as well as local fishermen and lobstermen. Lubec’s downtown area boasts large homes built by sea captains and industry leaders and quaint restaurants and shops. The public boat launch, Fisherman’s Memorial Park, and the breakwater are all within walking distance from each other. Watch the seals frolic in the tidal current, the fishermen as they head out for their daily catch, or just relax on one of the granite benches overlooking the waterfront.
Lubec, and its surrounding area, is also home to over 43,000 acres of public and preserved lands open to the public for hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, and other low impact recreational activities. Nearby is the Downeast Sunrise Trails which is an 85-mile trail built along a former rail corridor from Washington Junction in Hancock to Ayers Junction in Pembroke. It has a compact gravel base and is ideal for snowmobiling, ATVing, walking, bicycling, cross-country skiing, and horseback riding. Washington County is a lot of things. It is the most gorgeous, has the deepest cargo port, the longest coastline including the Bold Coast, the highest tides, and produces the most lobster and clam landings. What
Washington County does not have is lots of traffic lights (only three in the whole county), an interstate, a Red Lobster Restaurant, or poisonous snakes. Known as the Sunrise County, Washington County welcomes the first rays of sun to shine on the US each day. With tides averaging between 18 and 22 feet, the bold, salt-sprayed shoreline of Downeast Maine offers deserted beaches, quiet hiking trails, rugged cliffs, and unnamed beauty. Truly one of the last frontiers on the Eastern seaboard, one does not have to go far to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. With 2 cities, 44 towns, and a population of approximately 32,000, Washington County is larger than the states of Delaware and Rhode Island combined. Something for everyone in beautiful Downeast Maine and coastal Washington County!
