From the Zillow listing:


A place to find your inner peace! This incredible abode affords 2.2 acres of beautifully rolling land abutting a prolific ever-relaxing freshwater stream and meandering shore frontage along the tidal estuary referred to as Bucks Harbor Creek. Originally serving its life as a humble fisherman’s cottage, the main cottage has been painstakingly renovated with exquisitie attention to detail. Great attention was given to memorable details such as intricate crown and dentil moldings, imaginative decorative painting (including copper leaf ceilings) and MUCH whimsy! Original beams have been preserved from the complete renovation (structure was stripped to the studs & rebuilt). Previously, an adjacent parcel was purchased which also has its own septic system and drilled well. Several outbuildings, a terribly inviting rear deck, beautifully constructed coop, and exterior gated entrance adorn the grounds which are nicely manicured. Add a second home overlooking the beautiful tidal estuary, groom the grounds for a prolific “gentleman’s farm”, or just sit back and inhale the sounds of the brook and natural wildlife!
