Owner-built in 2000 and designed by noted Maine architect Robert Knight, this extraordinary property was featured in the Wall Street Journal and has been called ''the best house in Maine.'' On 5 1/2 acres that sit atop a 30-foot cliff overlooking the boldAtlantic Ocean are two houses that combine isolation and protection with almost immediate, traffic-free access to the Portland Jetport (America's easiest major airport) and the culture and restaurants of Portland, Bon Appetit's 2018 ''Restaurant City of the Year.'' This estate boasts spectacular views from nearly every room of both the four-bedroom main house and the four-bedroom guest house. With big and comfortable rooms for entertaining, a kitchen that challenges the best restaurants, amazing home offices and a jaw-dropping master suite, there is nothing missing in spaces that exude attention to detail. The landscape includes more than 650 feet of shore frontage, acres of mature perennial gardens, a gazebo with fireplace that overlooks crashing surf, an oceanside swimming pool, a tennis court and a private beach.
