Property Description

Spacious and elegant, Contemporary style home with a touch of mid-century modern in a private Blue Hill village setting. Recently remodeled with great attention to detail. Walls of window invite light with southern exposure and a trombe wall (masonry wall separated from the outdoors by a glass wall) is designed to absorb solar heat and release it into the interior of a building making this home super-efficient. Fab open floor plan and spacious rooms with 4 bedrooms & potential for a guest suite on the 1st floor. Located in a bucolic setting on a 68+ acre BHHT preserve. A truly one of a kind home which fronts on a lavish meadow nurturing a grove of mature American chestnut trees and is flanked by two woodland mountain streams. The passive solar design catches the winter sunlight while the summer afternoons invite the cool sea breeze as it rolls from the head of the bay up the gentle slopes of Blue Hill Mountain.


What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

There is a trombe wall on the lower level. This is a passive solar structure that can be described as a narrow hallway with windows on the south side and a masonry wall on the back. The winter sun warms the masonry wall and the heatrnis trapped in the hallway. Often the temperature in the hallway exceeds 100 degrees, even on the coldest days. Opening the sliding doors into the lower level lets the heat circulate through the wide hallways and open staircases throughout the entire house. The roof overhangs are calculate so that they shade the trombe wall from the summer sun. Doors at either end of the hallway open to the outside letting breezes pass through in the summer.rnThe house is super insulated and solidly constructed.rnThe exterior walls are insulated 2X6 construction with an additional two inch insulating foam board and a vapor barrier on the inside, all covered by drywall. The attic is well ventilated with what looks to be 18 inches of fiberglass insulation. Two split units heat and cool the upper and lower levels. Thernfireplace is great! It doesn't smoke like so many do and it throws a lot of heat. There is also a wood stove in the basement. With 60 plus acres of woodland at your disposal, firewood is not a problem if you are so inclined. The bottom line is that the house is warm and draft free in the winter and cool in the summer.
