Wonderfully Wild: A Forested 18-Acre Maine Estate Lush with Luxury Wants $8.5M

Mad about Maine? Then feast your eyes on this listing. New on the market, the 18-acre estate in Camden combines the world’s wild beauty, manmade design, and modern luxuries impeccably. Looking out to Camden Harbor and the islands of Penobscot Bay, it’s asking $8.5 million.

The expansive grounds hold an abundance of rich, green trees—doing their part to keep the air here and beyond clean and fresh. Among the brush, the estate’s Arts-and-Crafts mansion emerges, inspired by the work of famed architects Greene and Greene.

The 2012-built residence is made up of a three-bedroom main house (or rather Maine house?) and a one-bedroom guest home. Both rustic yet sophisticated structures look out to the pool with unique water features, and beyond to pines and the ocean. Such a picturesque natural setting is rare to have all to oneself, more often seen at a resort or a national park. Then, masterful gardens offer even more to “ooh” and “ahh” at.

When the weather gets feisty, steal away to the 6,870-square-foot interiors to sink into the home theater, hit the exercise room, or relax in the sauna. There’s also a wine cellar, greenhouse, and recreation room to enjoy as well as six fireplaces to choose from for getting cozy.

Whether you’re pinning this to your “New England Dream Home” board or looking to buy it, the property is a must-see. Brian Wickenden of Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.
