Pumpkin Point is located on Rackliff Island, which is part of the Tenants Harbor and St. George Peninsula. The island is accessed by a causeway and truth be told, getting to this beautiful, waterfront house is almost as breathtaking as the property itself. Driving down tree-lined Island Ave, the road suddenly opens up onto one of the most stunning views you will see: at the end of the causeway, a pine-studded island settled in the middle of Wheeler’s Bay, a vibrant boating and fishing community. Pumpkin Point overlooks the wide, open ocean and the outer islands on the horizon, Spruce Head Island to the left and Clark Island to the right. You will see lobster boats, sailboats, kayakers, and cruising boats working their way around the Mussel Ridge Channel.
Pumpkin Point was designed and built to bring its unique and striking waterfront location indoors – floor-to-ceiling windows, warm wood abounds and a soaring fireplace, built from the very granite surrounding the island, is the mainstay of the family room. Outdoor living spaces are found on each floor – a covered outdoor dining area, a sprawling deck at the front of the house as well as two private decks on the second floor. There are views from virtually every room and they are ever-changing as the tides.
The property itself sits on a small point; on one side, the lawn leads to a private wharf and smooth granite ledge dipping down to the water and an easily accessible sandy beach dotted with tide pools on the other. This home is the best of both worlds; go boating and fishing from the wharf in the morning and then spend the afternoon with your toes in warm sand reading a good book.
The main floor has a spacious family room with a fireplace and a large kitchen with a dining area to seat 10-12 people. Both these rooms have access to the front deck via French doors. The ceilings are high and the natural light is beautiful. Also on this floor is the primary bedroom with a king bed and an en-suite bathroom with an oversized customer shower. A smaller bedroom is on the opposite side of the house with a queen bed and a full bathroom (tub and shower combination) in close proximity. The front vestibule of the house has a half bath as well. The first floor also has a mudroom and a laundry room.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a large game room with a regulation-sized pool table, a minibar, a cozy conversation area overlooking the water, and a multi-purpose room. The first bedroom has a queen bed and water views – there is a full bathroom with a shower/tub combination just outside the door. The second bedroom has a queen and water views – it also has access to a private, rooftop deck with a bistro set. The views from this elevated deck are amazing! Adjacent to this bedroom is a smaller bedroom with two twin beds accessed through the queen room. Another full bathroom with a tub/shower combo is also just outside the door.
Pumpkin Point is truly an escape to another world – it allows for island living without needing a boat or a ferry. The natural beauty that surrounds it is found inside as well. Pumpkin Point allows you to experience Maine – the real Maine which is precious for all that it is and all that it isn’t.
