At home on the coast of Maine, this cedar-shingled contemporary blends effortlessly into its landscape. Designed by nationally-renowned architect Sam van Dam and built by skilled local craftsmen, this waterfront estate promises tranquility and invites adventure. Composed of three wings, this sprawling home offers one level living and thoughtful uses of space. The kitchen and great room have vaulted ceilings and large windows overlooking Casco Bay and Chebeague Island. A stone chimney with a wood stove brings warmth and texture to this space. The adjoining three season sunroom is a masterpiece, with a built-in charcoal grill and a rounded wall of windows overlooking the native landscape and the ocean beyond. Moving back through the kitchen you enter the dining room with a Rumford fireplace and large windows. Down one hall is a mudroom breezeway connecting to the two car garage, and through another doorway is the grand library with a second Rumford fireplace, floor to ceiling bookshelves, built-in desk, and book ladder. A clever alignment of windows brings natural light into this room from four directions. The primary suite is beyond the library, with a laundry room, changing room, and large spa-like bathroom with a soaking tub and a large tile shower. In the lower level, 2 bedrooms, a bath, and a living room adds great space for guests and residents alike. Outside, pathways meander the property and wind down to a ramp and float along the shore for recreational day boating, with the opportunity to add a pier for a true deep water experience. A whole house generator and a 1,500 gallon buried propane tank provide peace of mind, and the newly paved private road is a joy to drive. On approximately 5 acres on the back side of Cousins' Island with ~325' of private water frontage, this property feels a world away, while only a short drive to Yarmouth Village and downtown Portland, with southern Maine's finest boating waters right out your back door.

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.
