Not just an idle phrase, but a real experience. The house  was designed by an architect in 2006 to take full advantage of a never to be duplicated   site, which was once the location of a vintage summer cottage. Located on Capitol Island off the coast of Southport, on the Boothbay peninsula, this1875 summer colony is reached by its own small bridge, and is steeped in the memories of several generations of families sharing their halcyon days of growing up, and old ,in the  cherished environment of Maine summers. The amenities to residents of “Capitol”, include a tennis court, recreation center , large sandy beach ,marina and two docks. The house, perched high on the rocks affords 300 degree  views of ocean and islands. The three stories are perfect for privacy and family gatherings.

Large kitchen and living room on the second, and the master suite with cathedral ceiling and bath, on the third. An elevator and stairs serve all three floors. Two large open decks, and many panoramic windows, afford a true feeling of the Maine coast. Abundant wildlife, swaying sea grass , privacy and convenience. All here! New to the market. $1,450,000.
