Location: Isleboro, Maine
This quaint abode is located on the island of Islesboro off the coast of Maine. Known as the Abbey at Farrow Farm, the 2004-built abode is currently being used as a retreat center, but can easily be converted to an idyllic residence.
The 3,000-square-foot property encompasses five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and three kitchens across a main house (which features a circular tower), tiny house, and a guest cottage, all set on 2.63 verdant acres. The main house includes a first-floor unit, and a second unit comprising the second, third, and fourth floors.
With a charming wood-framed and shingled construction made from local materials, the home features wide-plank hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, wall paneling, plenty of windows, and a collection of nooks that provide spaces for solace, privacy, and rest.
A large wooden deck and balconies on the main house offer generous outdoor living opportunities, while the aforementioned grounds and gardens extend the chance to commune with nature.
Located at 832 Main Road, the property, which would also make for a great rental, is offered at $299,000.
