Prominently sited on 21+/- acres with 1,110+/- feet of varied shorefront on Gilkey Harbor and stunning views to the west, the Sears Cottage is one of the grand historic Islesboro estates constructed at the turn of the 20th century. The nine-bedroom, nine-bath home also includes staff quarters, a guest cottage with four-car garage, billiard house, carriage house / stable, reading room, and substantial deep-water dock with floats. The residence, characteristic of the Renaissance Revival Style, has been thoughtfully restored and retains many original details such as eleven wood-burning fireplaces and fine woodwork throughout. The grounds are those of a classic Maine summer estate: artfully landscaped with lawns, flowering shrubs, specimen trees, and both formal and informal gardens interspersed with natural Maine woods.
