This stunning 6 acre groomed and wooded private park of towering conifers and beeches is set on its own peninsula.  The property was once the location for a summer camp for visually impaired children and has a wide trail left-over from the camp that wraps the property. Surrounded by gorgeous oceanfront on 3 sides, there is easy water access from every aspect. The luxurious open plan contemporary home is a Taleisin design showing influences of Frank Lloyd Wright. The home is surrounded by beautiful perennial gardens, walking paths, a gazebo overlooking the cove and a one room artist cottage hideaway among the trees. The floating dock allows tidal access to deepwater moorings just a short distance from the rocky shorefront. For the discriminating vacationer, this is the ultimate Maine oceanfront experience!  A new ensuite bathroom was added over the winter of 2014/15 for the two-twin bedroom.

This panorama shot, while it makes the ping pong table look curved (which it isn't), shows the vast gaming and entertainment space in the basement at Watch Point.

For the most part, we felt On the Water was pleasant to work with.
Property
We enjoyed sitting on the dock at the end of the day and sharing thoughts of the day with the rest of our family members. In the morning we would sit on the dock and have coffee and discuss our plans for the day ahead. Either way, it was peaceful and even saw an eagle soar above us, a horseshoe crab in the water, a jellyfish, and other big fish jump from the water.

Gorgeous property - and so private on its own peninsula. We especially enjoyed our walks along the trail which surround the house. Beautiful views along the way as it is right on the water's edge. Nice, open concept within the large interior of the house. Well managed and clean throughout.
