Enjoy views of the harbor and pretty flower beds from Windfall's deck! With a separate guest cottage and open floor plan, this property is great for family reunions and entertaining, while its intimate library and master bedroom suite allow for quiet retreats. The garden at Windfall has been tended and added to each year. The gardens bloom continuously from June to the end of Northeast Harbor's short, but prolific, growing season. Sitting on Windfall's terrace in the late afternoon the eye absorbs the tranquility of the inner harbor, while enjoying the warm fragrance of the evening garden, and the abundant wildlife. The light and airy floor plan lends itself to entertaining, both formally and informally. Nearly every room provides views of the water.
FIRST FLOOR: Granite steps lead from the parking area to a gracious entrance along a wooden walkway to the house. The tile floor entry and coat closet leads through a glass door into the Living Room with vaulted ceiling, wood floors, fireplace, and a bank of sliding glass doors onto the Deck. This central social hub includes an open plan Dining Room with sliding glass doors that lead to the lovely front deck. NEW FOR 2017: a newly updated kitchen now overlooks the dining area, creating a more social space while preparing meals. A corridor leads from the Living Room in one direction to the Guest Suite. This Guest Suite offers two Bedrooms - one with a Queen bed, the other with a King (two twin beds made up as a king with insert) and a shared full Bath. Both bedrooms have sliding doors opening to the Deck with water views. A door separates the Living Room from the Guest Suite, permitting additional privacy and quiet. On the other side of the Living Room/Dining Room/Kitchen/half Bath area is the house's pièce de résistance - its charming Library, which has a Mediterranean feel with its terra cotta walls, fireplace, glass doors to the Deck, beautiful bookcases overflowing with volumes, a wet bar, television, and an elegant spiral staircase to the second floor. There is also a Study adjoining the Library. The Study has two outer doors, one leading to the Guest House and the other to the front walkway.
SECOND FLOOR: The spiral staircase in the Library leads to the Master Bedroom Suite with Queen bed, built-in bookcases and views of the water. A large private bathroom with shower; brand new for the 2017 season. There is a Laundry area on this level too.
GUEST HOUSE: The adjoining Guest House with sliding doors to private Deck can accommodate four guests and includes two Bathrooms, laundry and a kitchenette. The first floor open Living Area offers sleeping for two on matching Twin-sized daybeds, and opens to the Kitchenette and Bathroom with Laundry. Up the spiral staircase is the second Floor loft Bedroom with King (two twin beds made up as a king with insert), and a Bath with shower only. A small private deck off the upper level offers a separate back entrance. The Guest House sleeps four comfortably.
OUTDOOR SPACES: A wrap-around Deck with access from nearly every room, offers a wonderful spot from which to entertain or relax. A patio table with seating for six and umbrella, two zero gravity lounge chairs and bench seat are available.
DOCK/GARDENS: In addition to Windfall's mature landscaped gardens, a little used town dock is a 5-minute walk from the house, as well as the public Asticou Azalea Garden, Thuya Garden and the Asticou Terrraces.
