Property descriptionStill Point is a quintessential Maine waterfront property in a private setting on a point of land with spectacular western and southern views of Bremen Long Island, Hungry Island and over Muscongus Bay to the open ocean. Located at the end of a long winding drive through forest, the property has 11.65 acres and 1,192 feet of shorefront with a beautifully renovated house, a post and beam barn with guest apartment, a charming artist studio, and a substantial dock with a dock house and a sauna, all in excellent condition. The landscape equals the buildings in quality and character and includes artistically conceived outdoor living spaces framed by flowering gardens and expert stonework, attractive and accessible shorefront; and there are walking paths through exquisite elevated rock ledge covered with many types of moss and flora and a small meadow with broad water views.The property, the site of a historic lobster pound, tells the story of Friendships origins as a town known for shipbuilding (the Friendship Sloop), lobstering and fishing. The main residence, originally the seasonal lobster pound house, is in a grandfathered location right at waters edge. The dock, also original but recently rebuilt, is where the lobster boats pulled in to drop off their catch; the charming sleeping room was the office where these transactions were finalized. Evidence remains of the fence that penned the lobsters in the shallow area between the islands and the mainland before they were shipped and sold. Friendships shipbuilders and sawmills sourced their wood from a lumber yard that was once on the property, and small artifacts of early twentieth century machinery still dot the forest floor.
