Spend the summers or enjoy year-round living on Rutherford Island just up the street from Christmas Cove! This lovingly-maintained 3 bedroom antique Cape boasts uninterrupted westerly sunset water views of Long Cove and the Damariscotta River. Ease of public access to the Cove for swimming, kayaking and to your mooring. In addition, guests may enjoy the charming seasonal guest cottage with excellent rental history, housed in the former antique barn. The guest quarters include living room, dining area and kitchen on the 2nd floor with cathedral ceilings, exposed beams with rich wood patina, ample sunshine streaming through the large windows and a woodstove to take the chill off on those cool summer evenings. Whimsical sleeping accommodations and bath are on the 1st floor. The property includes over 8 acres with the possibility for building a family compound or perhaps subdividing into a couple building lots. The ocean views from the hilltop acreage are spectacular too! The interior of the main house is reminiscent of a simpler time where an afternoon might be spent enjoying a cup of tea and favorite novel in a quiet reading nook, relaxing in the backyard hammock and playing a game of cribbage & scrabble. Lawn games might include croquet, badminton and horse shoes. Delight in the conversation during the evening meal complete with wonderful tales shared by guests of their adventures from that day. Outdoor decks & patio are ideal for dining and gathering al fresco. Property includes a tidy wood shed and 1 car garage plus childhood tree swing. A short bike ride or stroll to Christmas Cove to enjoy the local music and cuisine served at Coveside Restaurant & Marina. Also nearby are Osier's Wharf, boatyard, town landing, library and community school. Rest, relax, play and work all found in this true island gem... the way life ought to be!
