Six Gables is an exceptionally crafted post-and-beam home with privacy for a small party. Situated on two acres directly in the heart of historic Mount Desert where families began the pursuit of freedom on Mount Desert Island a few centuries ago, Six Gables evokes a immediate sense of calm. Five miles from Northeast Harbor and 5 miles from Bar Harbor. Close to Giant Slide Trail, Sargent Drive, Abels Lobster Pound, and so much more. Walk up the drive right on to Acadia National Park land beyond the house. Deer and nature are your most visible neighbors.
Six Gables features delightful IKEA furnishings in all rooms for comfort. Her open style layout is centered around a living room with a gas fireplace; kitchen with simple and elegant tailoring; formal dining table as well as a bistro table for 4. A generous sun porch with western views will provide more seating and an area for home-away-from-home communicating (work), reading, entertaining and lounging. Six Gables' first floor sports a private bedroom with a queen size bed and a large walk-in closet. On this floor there is a full bathroom with a large shower (no tub). Up the stairs in the open loft is a California king size bed, a second sleeping area with twin beds, and a bathroom with a free-standing tub. Cathedral ceilings and views out the second story windows toward the ocean allow for glimpses of Somes Sound and sunsets each day.
Six Gables has all new appliances and granite counter tops. Bosch washer and dryer in the basement. She boasts wood floors, radiant heat, fans, telephone, dial-up internet, gas grill. We must say that the owners will actively and happily assist tenants with acquiring lobsters cooked outside the home because the Mrs. has an aversion to lobster cooking mess. Thanks for your understanding.
Outside is a beautiful patio, brand new deck, enjoyable landscaping, outdoor furniture and a garage (with electric door opener) in which to store your bikes and kayaks. Brand new in 2016 is an automatic generator in case of power outage. Ample parking and only 5 minutes to Bar Harbor or Northeast Harbor.
