The newest edition to our properties is amazing Sound View, located in Hall Quarry, Mount Desert! Hall Quarry is located about halfway between Somesville and Southwest Harbor on Mount Desert Island. It was once home to a thriving granite quarrying industry that provided stone to build such important structures as the National Mint in Philadelphia and the Brooklyn anchorage to the Manhattan Bridge in New York. Hall Quarry supported as many as five quarrying operations from 1870 to 1965.
It is a peaceful and serene village that sits nestled in the hills on Somes Sound, the only natural fjard on the east coast and a popular sailing and pleasure boating destination, offering protected deep anchorages and spectacular views all year long.
Sound View is a very spacious, meticulously decorated and a comfortable home away from home set amidst a huge manicured yard, overlooking the most spectacular and amazing views of Somes Sound, as well as beautiful Sargent, Bald Peak, Parkman and Norumbega Mountains. Relax in the most private setting while you sip your coffee on your very spacious deck and enjoy the ever changing breathtaking views! Watch the deer grazing all around you in the early evenings. Also take in our spectacular Maine Lupine flowering field in full bloom, along your view to the Sound (seasonally). Feel free to cut a few to have them for inside as well.
We are just minutes (2 to 3 miles) to some of Acadia National Park's most popular hiking and biking trails, as well as great swimming at Echo Lake Beach. We are within 8 miles of downtown Bar Harbor and minutes to everything that our beautiful Island has to offer, without having to endure the lack of privacy with downtown properties and the huge crowds and noise from the cruise ship traffic while staying in Bar Harbor.
Sound View has five lovely bedrooms and three bathrooms. It will comfortably accommodate a total of 12 (8 ADULTS / 4 CHILDREN MAXIMUM). It is delicately appointed with brand-new fine furnishings, flooring, upscale bedding and linens, housewares, etc.
This amazing property provides you with everything you could possibly need! The beautiful gas fireplace is a perfect setting for cooler evenings. On the entrance level floor, there is a fully stocked kitchen leading to an open concept living room and sun-room dining area, both with large sliding glass doors to the spacious deck and gorgeous view. Lots of windows throughout allows for wonderful natural light. There is a master bedroom with a king sized bed and a smaller en suite bathroom, as well as a second bedroom with a queen size bed and a larger bathroom for the main floor to utilize.
Wander downstairs where you will find two more queen sized bedrooms, one leading to what we call the bunk room. It has a bunk bed and trundle unit (sleeps 3 kids). Also downstairs is a great office space with a relaxing day bed and then a very spacious recreation room for lounging, watching television or playing one of the great games we have included. It also has a full bath attached, as well as a queen sleeper sofa.
Our glorious views continue from every window. This house is perfect for extended families traveling together or multiple couples. There is a washer and dryer located on each floor for your convenience. Outside enjoy the very spacious back yard with a great fire pit for roasting marshmallows, a volleyball/badminton net for your added enjoyment and a horse shoe pit in the field.
