THE PROPERTY: Nestled among a grove of stately oak trees at the end of a private peninsula, Allen Point Cove is perfectly sited on Blue Hill’s serene and secluded Salt Pond. This five-acre property with approximately 945 feet of private ocean water frontage is beautifully groomed with a stone wall and perennial gardens that wrap around the house, manicured lawns that transition to an open field, mature evergreens and oaks, and blossoming Cleveland pear trees that line the approach to the property. A gentle sloping front yard takes you past a waterfront treehouse and down to your private dock where the adventures begin. Paddle along the scenic four-mile long Salt Pond, ride the surf in your whitewater kayak at the tidal reversing Blue Hill Falls, or venture out to stunning Blue Hill Bay, a sailor’s paradise popular for its safe harbor and bordering islands. Closer to home, explore and camp on 10-acre Carleton Island, an undeveloped property preserved through The Blue Hill Heritage Trust – it’s just a short swim or paddle from your dock!

THE RESIDENCE: The 3,000+ square foot house at Allen Point Cove features generously proportioned rooms with panoramic views of the Salt Pond, beautiful hardwood floors, and an open, airy layout. The spacious gourmet kitchen will inspire your inner chef with its granite counters, large island with cabinetry and seating, walk-in pantry, and stainless-steel appliances. Sliding glass doors in the breakfast nook showcase the wrap-around deck and water view while opening the kitchen to air and light. The open dining and living area with vaulted ceiling, a wood-burning stove/fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and a glass door to the deck provides a wonderful and flowing space for family gatherings and entertaining. A potential master bedroom with bath completes the main level. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms, a bath, and a large master bedroom ensuite with sitting area. All rooms have lovely views of the cove. The daylight finished basement is a wonderful addition and doubles as a family den and recreational space. In addition to the main residence, a sizable in-law suite over the three-car garage looks out over the lawn to the water.  

THE LOCATION: Allen Point Cove is just five minutes from the center of Blue Hill, one of Maine’s most picturesque coastal villages. Founded in 1762, Blue Hill remains a remarkably unspoiled year-round community. It attracts artists, musicians, craftspeople, writers, sailors, and summer vacationers, drawn to the area for its incredible natural beauty, privacy, and traditional way of life. Blue Hill offers excellent restaurants, a variety of shops and art galleries, an organic supermarket, a full-service hospital, and numerous musical and theatrical groups. The Kollegewidgwok Yacht Club and The Blue Hill Country Club, both private clubs, offer sailing, tennis, and golf. The soon-to-be-completed YMCA will offer a pool, full fitness center, and senior center. Acadia National Park, Bangor International Airport, and Bar Harbor Airport are all within an hour’s drive.
