Location: Northeast Harbor, Maine
The Skinny: The collection of stately homes along Somes Sound that form the preppy enclave known as Northeast Harbor are grand summer "cottages", even by the standard of Mount Desert Island. This Gambrel-roofed mansion, set on 3.27 waterfront acres, enjoys a particularly favorable location, with both a dock and a less-than-common private beach, along with sweeping water views. The four-bedroom, 4700-square-foot main house is joined on the property by a dockside guest cottage, separated by well-maintained, if not formal, grounds. Listed for nearly $10M, this seaside manse is looking for a member of the private jet set, as Northeast Harbor is more than five hours from Boston, and nine hours from NYC, by car.
