Bluff Point is a spectacular waterfront estate on Islesboro occupying a 37.9± acre peninsula with stunning views of Penobscot Bay and the islands to the south and east and overlooking the more intimate Ryder Cove and Sabbathday Harbor to the west. Originally part of the George W.C. Drexel Estate, the property features a winding, scenic approach through forest, open meadow and blueberry fields. The architect-designed main residence, built in 2001, is an aesthetically pleasing contemporary representation of the Arts & Crafts movement that is in perfect keeping with its surrounding natural environment. Two bedrooms and comfortable living spaces are enhanced by custom interior woodwork, large windows and elegant light fixtures that combine to create an informal and sophisticated interior. Historic outbuildings set within the estate-style grounds complete the property including a three-bedroom guest house, a charming tea house, a small barn, a water's edge boathouse and a recently constructed two-level studio/workshop. The private peninsula includes 3,700± feet of dramatic rocky shorefront with stretches of pebble beach and a deep-water dock with ramp, floats and mooring on the protected Ryder Cove. Islesboro, located three miles off the coast in Maine's Penobscot Bay, is readily accessed by car ferry, or by private aircraft landing on the island's 2,400-foot airstrip.
