An Elegant Saltwater Farm on a Historic Peninsula in Castine

Main_residence_overlooks_fields_and_stone_wallsCoverly Farm was a labor of love for its owner, who designed the house himself and enjoyed it for years with his family. Drawing inspiration from traditional English country manors and the nautical influences surrounding the property, the house incorporates contemporary style with beautiful craftsmanship.

It overlooks fields and stone walls that sweep to the Bagaduce, a beautiful tidal estuary that forms the Castine peninsula. The guest house is a charming 1- or 2-bedroom post and beam house, and the barn offers a studio space as well as garden and tractor storage. While someone may well just maintain the open fields, enjoying the view and the wildlife that flourish, there’s also the potential here for a full-scale farming operation of some kind. With 40 acres mostly in fields (the woods here really serve to offer privacy on the property borders and cover for wildlife), there are all kinds of opportunities.

The farm is located just a few miles up the road from one of the oldest villages in the nation, Castine. This historic year-round community is situated on an island-like peninsula on the eastern shore of Penobscot Bay. Its antique grace is preserved by the white clapboard residences that line its streets. Castine is home to Maine Maritime Academy, the Castine Yacht Club, and the Castine Golf Club. A variety of shops, galleries, and restaurants are located in the village and in nearby Blue Hill.ME0901_1N
