Description

Artisan-Built Six Bedroom House on 2.2 Acres
with 700’ Waterfront and 30’ Private Dock

This beautifully situated West End property offers privacy and convenience. Overlooking West Harbor, with a private dock and sunset views, this winterized property is a house for all seasons.

LOCATION:

Located on a beautiful, unspoiled point overlooking West Harbor, this house perfectly combines convenience and privacy. It sits at the end of a hidden drive before the East End gatehouse. With easy access to both the West and East Ends, ScotFree provides the best of both worlds.

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION:

ScotFree occupies its own, private peninsula between Inner Cove and Pirates Cove, boasting over 700 feet of water frontage and a 30’ private dock. Fish the Race in 15 minutes, or head to the mainland and have a lobster lunch at Abbott’s in 20. Dubbed “Hurricane Hole,” this is the most protected anchorage on the island, providing utmost shelter and security during storms. The house is set 35’ above sea level, offering gorgeous views out to West Harbor and stunning sunsets.

The property is beautifully landscaped with flowering gardens, towering specimen trees, and mature oaks. The lawn and gardens are maintained by an irrigation system that is fed by its own well. The property also has plentiful parking, a 6’x18’ covered kennel, and an Invisible Fence system.

HOUSE DESCRIPTION:

The oak timber-framed house was custom built in 1990 by New England artisans using 18th-century Connecticut River Valley techniques. Exceptional craftsmanship is encountered in every detail, from custom molding to wood paneling and detailing throughout. Custom materials lend a richness to the interior, including cherry heartwood flooring on the first floor and clear Southern pine on the second.

The house has 6 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, with a large first-floor master bedroom and bath. The first floor also includes a large kitchen with a central island and views to the water as well as an enclosed screen porch. The formal dining room is open to the kitchen but can be closed off with sliding pocket doors when entertaining. The large living room has a beautiful cathedral ceiling as well as a wet bar.

The second floor has an open family room, three bedrooms, and two full bathrooms, while the ground level, lined with windows on one side, has a large family room, two bedrooms, a full bath, and walk-out to the outdoor shower.

ScotFree was built with year-round use in mind. It is designed to maximize cross-ventilation, taking advantage of lovely harbor breezes during the summer. Central A/C on the first and ground floors also helps with the hottest parts of the summer. The house is winterized, so it stays cozy during the colder months. It also has two “Rumford” fireplaces—one in the living room and one in the dining room—which provide warmth and cheer during the coldest parts of winter.

The house has stayed with the family who originally built it and has been meticulously maintained. ScotFree is in move-in condition and offers a rare opportunity to own a beautiful home on the West End with a private dock.
