This is a unique, private 97-acre tree park on a storybook island with 1500 summer residents (the magnolia plot cottage on an additional 3 acre parcel is also available as an add-on purchase). Webster Head Farm drapes across a knoll, festooned down to the sea with hundreds of choice trees and bushes chosen for their visual interest, bloom times, perfumes, and fruits. It is a series of pastoral scenes, moulded in the subtle style of Frederick Law Olmsted: beautifully maintained fields, an old hardwood forest, a Metasequoia grove, orchards and gardens. Three warm spring-fed swimming ponds beckon -- one with a gazebo, pier, and float, and a tranquil island reached by wooden bridge. Meandering paths for Jeeps, ATV's, and romantics crisscross the land with birdsong in the air and fauna at forest's edge, past a wisteria arbor, by a serene old cemetery, to a canoeing pond overseeing the ocean. A sheltered deep-water cove on the quiet side of North Haven frames dozens of islands and the majestic Camden hills. The beach sprawls with life at low tide, punctuated by the outflow of the long infinity pond. Bald eagles soar and wild asian sheep shelter here. The 1828 Cape was built for the families of two sea captain brothers, with all the period detail and trimmings of a Wyeth painting. There are various outbuildings, among them a 2,500-square-foot heated boat-building barn and garages. For 35 years, this farm has been the province of artists, cleansing and cultivating the landscape with specimen plantings to amplify the natural beauty of the estate. Every season is cinematic here. It is a true refuge from the urgency of the 21st century (albeit with easy access and broadband) -- a place to drink deep of life and be restored.

Melissa Marcello & Eric Sturm

When my husband got hired at the Jackson Laboratory, we were excited about moving to Maine, but also nervous about finding a house we loved in a community with good schools and amenities while in the midst of the pandemic.

We feel so fortunate to have found Midge, and have her in our corner. As a native Mainer, Midge really knows the area, is experienced, and will tell things like they are. She advised us well on many fronts (e.g., location, price, housing stock, schools, etc.) while helping to manage the many stressors that come with home buying.

Simply put, Midge makes the home buying process easier for those of us ‘from away’—we highly recommend working with her. And we love our new home on Newbury Neck in Surry!

Margaret Smith represented us in the summer of 2020 as our listing agent in the sale of our house in Deer Isle, Maine. Margaret's knowledge of every aspect of selling a property and how she guided us through some unusual issues which occurred along the way could only have been handled by an extremely experienced and thorough broker. Margaret kept us completely informed all through the process beginning with the listing contract to the conclusion of the sale. I spent 12 years as a Realtor in the Boston suburbs. Margaret is one one the finest and most ethical Realtors I have worked with.
