West Boothbay Harbor, Maine

Historic Cottage



Once upon a time--

City dwellers discovered the magical coast of Maine, and have flocked here generation after generation. Many of them built waterfront shingle sided summer cottages, which their lucky families cherish today. For the first time in 50 years, such a cottage is available for a new family. Built in 1902, “Glasfryn” proudly stands on one of the highest points of fabled Townsend Gut. Ten rooms, custom warm pine paneling, cathedral ceiling, with a balcony all around, and, gracing the two-story living room is one of the most spectacular fireplaces in the region. Built long ago by a master stone mason of local rock, with pieces of rose quartz, mica, and amethyst. Spacious living room, formal dining room, kitchen, breakfast room, sunroom, 4 plus bedrooms and 3 baths.  Completely winterized, central air conditioning, security system, detached 2-car garage and large automatic generator. Gracious and nostalgic, it has large original waterfront porch plus a sun deck on the south side so you can see the boats from both sitting areas. A half-acre, 100 feet of protected deep water, private dock.  Community association a block away with a summer tennis pro, 4 clay tennis courts and a sandy beach further down the point.  Walking distance to the yacht club with a spectacular summer program for kids.  Spectacular golf and country club in town. $1,395,000. Not in a flood zone. Broker owned. Carol Buxton
