From the Zillow listing:

 

This imposing summer retreat is the pinnacle of luxury combined with rustic Maine living. Built in 1937, it is unique, and it would be impossible to build anything similar today. It’s a magical world unto itself. In fact, magic is the word used over and over in describing this remarkable family compound. With an emphasis on fun, this property has two houses, each with fanciful Nordic inspired architecture. The tower house is essentially a magnificent Great Room and master bedroom suite, complete with a sleeping porch perched among the trees and overlooking miles of sky, water and islands. In fact, one of the islands is included in the estate. This 2300 square foot house is a castle-like granite tower rising right out of the rocky shore below. With unparalleled views, this house is perfect for entertaining, and even has a balcony in the main ballroom designed to hold a band. The second grand house, called the ”Children’s House” is about 3700 square feet and has 6 bedrooms plus a large sleeping porch. This house has a magnificent dining room with large fireplace. It is a fantastic summer house with loads of room for the entire family. An all-tides deep water access dock provides direct and private access to Eggemoggin Reach. The estate encompasses over 33 acres including the 2.5 acre private island. A conservation easement protects the property but does allow an additional building site. Walking trails with exceptional views wind along the shore. This is truly an once in a lifetime opportunity.
