The space
With over 1000 feet of pristine shoreline, Blue Arches is a beautiful contemporary 4-bedroom 2264 sq ft home on a private cove. Porches on either side of the home offer spectacular views of the bay and the thriving flower gardens. Inside, amenities include a gourmet kitchen with gas range, breakfast area, full dining room, living, study/library and 4 bedrooms. The spacious 2nd floor master bedroom includes a separate walk-in closet and master bath with whirlpool and bidet.

This 15 acre oceanfront property is a private sanctuary for those who love coastal Maine. Imagine how nice it will be to have one of the loveliest homes in the desirable Oceanville section of Stonington all to yourself. Blue Arches has a great many decorative touches throughout the home including hardwood flooring, tasteful furnishings and a lovely brick fireplace.

The landscaped grounds and gardens are filled with flowers for cutting and enjoying.

Blue Arches is a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home. The attractive first floor is filled with light and all rooms have beautiful views of either the water or surrounding gardens.

The main floor includes a spacious, well-equipped kitchen to satisfy even the best cook, a glassed-in, formal dining area. This well-laid out home has an inviting, stylish living room with plenty of seating for family gatherings. The office/den offers a desk with a stunning view that can double as a quiet reading nook or TV room.

Blue Arches has three first floor bedrooms with a full bath, half bath and laundry room.

The entire second floor of Blue Arches houses the Master Suite with king bed, ocean views, tall ceilings and warm woodwork. A large closet and a master bathroom with bidet and jacuzzi complete the suite.

The exterior of Blue Arches provides many great features including a wrap-around deck which connects to a screened-in porch as well as a covered section of porch where you can spend an afternoon reading and admiring the movement of the tides, blue herons, sea hawks and other birds that live in this pretty cove - sometimes we even have a seal come for a visit!

Blue Arches has CABLE TV as well as HIGH SPEED INTERNET for live-streaming movies, and multiple people online at the same time.

ENJOY YOUR MUSIC or radio throughout the house. The house is wired for sound so that you can easily play music throughout the house from a smart phone, iPad, computer or iPod. Just plug in and play - you can play sound in certain rooms and not in others according to your choice.

The yard is protected by woods that are perfect for a walk or a wander. The lawn is big and open providing the perfect place for yard games (bocce ball, badmitten, horseshoes, volleyball - equipment supplied) or simply sitting and basking in the quiet beauty of this idyllic setting while watching the hummingbirds dance around the flower beds. An enchanting variety of perennial and annual flowers all around the grounds provide lovely scents and bouquets for you to enjoy.

Blue Arches has the perfect spot to launch your kayaks, and for the more adventurous, afternoon swims are a refreshing treat. There are great hikes on the island and biking around the island is a real treat. There's even a golf course nearby as well as restaurants, grocery shopping, and more.

If you're looking for a spacious and well-kept vacation rental that feels like an island sanctuary for your friends or family get-away on the beautiful Maine coastline, this home will be the perfect fit for you and your loved ones!

Acadia and Bar Harbor are close by for fun day trips - whale watches and more!

Where you’ll be

Deer Isle-Stonington, Maine, United States

Blue Arches is a short ride from great local restaurants, ice cream, hikes, kayaking, golf, bike rentals and hiking. It's wonderful to feel like you're nestled into the woods, with so much privacy and still be a short ride from a good grocery store, a movie or a beautiful restaurant to dine in!

Downtown Stonington Village is just two miles away. It's a lovely, picture perfect working fishing with a charming Main Street dotted with shops and restaurants that makes you feel like you have stepped into a Norman Rockwell painting. Architectural Digest Magazine named Stonington the "Prettiest Town in Maine."

Being in Stonington, a fishing village, is like slipping back into time, with wooden boats bobbing in Penobscot Bay and homes (many with cedar-shake shingles) built into the sloping hillside. The minute you hit Stonington, you enter the magical world of an authentic Down East village. While great for tourists, it’s still a working fishing village with a Main Street that makes you feel like you have stepped into a Norman Rockwell painting.
