Drive to the tip of Ripley Point and arrive at your 0.79 acre landing and pier site. Park your vehicle, walk down the gangway to the floating dock and jump aboard your boat. Cast off and cruise by a few out islands and in 5 minutes you arrive at Narrows Island, a 14 acre rockbound, spruce-clad island with 3 sand beaches as landing sites-2 on the west side and 1 larger one on the eastern side. Once you have landed on the island you can walk along an extensive trail system through field areas and spruce forests with moss and lichen covered rock outcroppings and chanterelle mushrooms on the forest floor. The northern end of the island has 2 small guest cottages perched just above one of the protected sand beaches. This end of the island is close to the mainland with a protected deepwater passageway between the island and Ripley Point. The southern end of the island faces the bold Atlantic. This is where you will find the main cottage, high on a bluff looking south with sweeping views of various out islands and the blue horizon. The area around the main cottage is lawn and pasture for unobstructed views south and to the west for gorgeous sunsets. The cottage was built in 1913, has lots of woodwork and an open floor plan with a 30 ft. great room with dining and living areas. There is also a large fireplace and lots of 15/15-light windows for fantastic views. The cottage is in very nice condition. It has been maintained with loving care by three generations of the family that have occupied this island for decades. Lastly, another island goes with this purchase. Bar Island, a 3-acre spruce-clad island, sits off the southern end of Narrows Island. At low tide you can walk over the exposed bar to adventure on this island too. Conservation easements are in place on the island, as well as many of the adjacent islands and mainland area, that will preserve the pristine setting and environment of this area of coastal Maine. Come join the stewardship of this truly unique parcel and step back in time to a much simpler and slower pace of life.
