Once every few decades a truly unique Northeast Harbor waterfront property comes on the market; Cow Cove now presents just such a rare opportunity. Encompassing over 6 acres of fields, woods, lawn and extensive shore-front stretching along the east side of the harbor, this delightful summer compound is graced by a vintage Peabody & Stearns 19-room main house, well-known to mariners for its iconic twin white chimneys. The exceptional property enjoys an unparalleled location in the harbor and includes a secluded guest cottage nestled in trees on a peninsula overlooking the inner harbor, a cozy carriage house with attached storage barn, and a private pier with multiple floats. Come by sea into Northeast Harbor and step ashore on your own dock, or wind down the gravel drive from Peabody Drive through woods and fields to an enchanting world of your own. Stroll along meandering paths, across the natural fields and through lovely stands of mature trees. Take a gentle row or paddle across the harbor to the bustling village of Northeast Harbor. Watch osprey and eagles soar, herons fishing the shores, or harbor seals surfacing in quiet waters mere yards away. Cow Cove is a setting at once part of the vibrant harbor yet discretely situated to afford privacy. Enjoyed by one family for over 70 years, this enchanting property now offers you everything you could desire in a unique waterside summer retreat. Please note: In addition to the details noted above, there are 2BR/1BA in the ''Little House'' and 2BR/1BA in the ''Carriage House'', both with galley kitchens. A portion of this property is broker owned.
