Location: South Bristol, Maine
This rustic, contemporary cottage sits right on Johns Bay in South Bristol, Maine, and sure knows how to take advantage of its waterfront surroundings. With full-height windows providing peninsula views on three sides—the east, south, and west—the 1,700-square-foot two-bedroom makes for a gorgeous escape.
Custom built in 2006 from stone, fir, cedar, and glass, the home hearkens back to vernacular cottage design while appealing to the modern lifestyle. With high, vaulted ceilings, paneled walls, built-ins, and custom cabinetry, the vacation residence feels both impressive and laid-back.
The open-plan first floor features an expansive great room with stone fireplace, kitchen, and dining area, all with views toward the ocean. On the second floor is an additional bedroom with a bathroom and a window seat.
Located on an acre of land at 13 Little Harbor Road surrounded by granite ledges and a protected cove, the property is available for a cool $2,000,000.
