It's all about the views and location! On the shores of the Saint George peninsula stands this most unique custom designed home in the octagonal shape that takes advantage of the premium SW and W views. With 284' frontage and an additional 50' view easement, one can 'see forever'. Eastern hemlock post & beam (think built like a fort) circa 1995 that situates perfectly with the 3.25 acre parcel bounded by mature oaks and forest for seclusion and privacy. Second building features a workshop studio with walkout to shore, a two-car heated garage, and guest quarters, -- also post & beam, custom, with a octagon and period of 8 theme. Many opportunities here for those looking for their own Maine retreat. Unusual and not to be missed.

Michelle grew up in the MidCoast, but moved back with her husband when her daughters were small. “I remembered what it was like to grow up here,” she says, “and I wanted that for my children too.”

After working in marketing and sales for an independent Maine publisher, Michelle brings a sense of what’s uniquely Maine to her real estate practice as well. She has a fondness for old houses and local history, and she wants to be a voice for preserving her community, as well as promoting it. “Many clients are coming here for its historic value,” she says. “They focus on the historical character and charm of the home. I’m working with a woman now who’s looking for a Victorian with as many of the original features intact as possible. She wants to know the age, the style, the DNA of the house – and I love the research!”

Michelle brings dedication and enthusiasm to her clients because she understands them. “Why do baby boomers, artists, entrepreneurs and families want to live here? Same reason I do. It has a budding creative economy, abundant four-season recreation and lots of cultural activities.”

Michelle enjoys gardening, literary events and she plays in a bluegrass retro folk band.
