Open ocean views are yours for the taking from this well built modern home. A mown path leads from the lawn to 180' of walkable shore frontage on Holmes Bay. Sheltered by mature trees, the location is idyllic, with landscaped grounds and a small pond. Living spaces are generous and take good advantage of the expansive views afforded by the southern exposure of many rooms of the home. Two floors of living, with an in-law apartment possible on the lower level. The main floor offers a formal living room and family room as well as formal dining room. The lower level is largely open concept, with its own bedroom and bathroom tucked in the southwest corner. Enjoyment of the salty air is encouraged by a cement patio at ground level and an open air deck on the second. You will find comfort and a great place to entertain guests in all seasons! Vehicle storage enters directly into the living area. A storage shed is located just up the driveway, perfect for a boat, lawn and garden equipment, or classic car. The bay offers possible mooring opportunities. Conveniently located to local shopping and services in Machias, this home is two hours from the international airport in Bangor, four hours from Portland, and six hours from Boston. There are many day trip adventures in reach, from Bar Harbor to the south to maritime Canada to the north and east.
