1284 River Road | Calais, ME

    This 37-acre salt water estate offers many vistas, each with its own unique view. There are five fields for grazing, growing, and mowing. Apple trees, cherry trees, high bush blueberries, blackberries, and a grape arbor are scattered throughout the estate. It doesn't take much dreaming to envision the many ways to enjoy this private estate and for the entrepreneur to envision a commercial enterprise that embraces the best Maine has to offer. You are limited only by your imagination! The pristine acres of  pastures, woods, and manicured lawns gently slope toward the 1220 ft of private shorefront with three private beaches on the deep salt water St. Croix estuary. The estate also offers 1122+- ft along tree lined US Route 1 in Calais. The property boasts all of the ingredients of Maine seaside living from the charming interiors of the main home to the rolling fields and beautiful shore; a must see!

Fox Point Estate- Sea Captain's Home

The maple tree-lined driveway leads up to a wrap-around country porch that faces the deep waters of the St. Croix River, International St. Croix Island,  and views that literally take your breath away. Perched on a knoll, this 11 room sea captains home would be anyone's dream to own. Built in 1859, the home features 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, eat-in kitchen with a center island and commercial-grade stove, formal dining room, large living room, and much more. 
    The home was lovingly restored and renovated in 2001 combining a pleasant blend of the 1800's charm of old while hosting new custom features with the technological infrastructure that is desired today. A security system has been installed that covers the vast property, guest house, and its many included outbuildings. A whole-property generator is also on site for alternative energy.

Guest Home

    The all-season guest cottage is a charming one bedroom, one bath home featuring a deck overlooking the estuary. Next to the home is a custom-built potting shed and a large garden shed, used in-part as a garden stand, which now faces the tilled fields. 

Timber Framed Garage & Recreation Room

    This 29x30 ft timber-framed, heated garage has two bays with 8x10 ft garage doors at each bay. This allows plenty of headroom to store a large tractor or other farm equipment. The impressive timber frame continues to the second floor that houses an immense recreation room. Perfect for entertaining and enjoying the water views from the large gable end window. Behind the garage is the automatic generator which supplies power to the whole complex if needed.

Waterside Cabin & Pond

  The peaceful pond house provides a getaway for family gatherings or private retreat from the busy home. The open concept provides a kitchenette with country table sitting area, day bed with storage, and small changing room complete with a privy. This cabin is a great place for reading and contemplation or for barbecues with family. 
    The inviting man-made pond hosts a modern metal dock, diving platform, aeration pump system, and 30 ft of depth making this the perfect swimming hole. Enjoy in all seasons with ice skating in the winter months. The pond is surrounded by native plants and flowers that attract birds, frogs, and other small creatures that make this pond home. The sitting deck on front is a great place to gather and watch the water fun. In the evening you can gather around the fire ring for relaxation and story telling, or on those damp cool nights enjoy a friendly game of cards inside.

Chicken Coop, Equipment Barn & Yard

    An additional building next to the farmhouse has been used as a chicken coop with fenced in yard, storage, and many other uses. It would definitely be the most luxurious chicken coup you will ever see, playhouse for children, or use for a craft space. A shed roof addition provides space for wood storage and houses the mechanical components of the aeration system. 
    The new 14x49 equipment barn with sliding barn doors has electricity and plenty of lighting fixtures to work on projects day or night.
