This is a terrific opportunity to own 100+/- acres of majestic island beauty on North Haven. This fantastic saltwater farm property includes open shorefront acreage with a magnificent beach, beautifully maintained fields with multiple swimming ponds, and two year round homes including a historic nineteenth-century Cape set within an extraordinary tree park. The John Brown Farm was built for two sea captain brothers in 1828. The year-round home sits at the top of a knoll with long pastoral and scenic ocean views overlooking a gorgeous meadow, old hardwood forest, orchards, and gardens, in a spectacular and totally private setting. The home is very well-maintained with a central chimney with three fireplaces, wood stove and furnace, four bedrooms and preserved period details. There are also three outbuildings, among them a 2,640+/- square foot wood-paneled, heated, and bright and sunny barn. The current owners have introduced hundreds of wonderful trees and plantings to create an extensive, inviting tree park, meticulously cleared and cared for over many years. There are three warm, spring-fed swimming ponds, one with a gazebo, pier, and float, and a tranquil island reached by wooden bridge. Magnolia house is a separate shingle style 5 bedroom home with a detached two car garage with an apartment above. Both homes offer year round living opportunities and terrific views and easy access to the land fronting Penobscot Bay. This unique listing offers tremendous privacy, and abundant natural beauty, an incredibly rare opportunity to be a part of one of Maine's most spectacular island communities.
