A very special retreat. Surely one of the largest land parcels, with 37 acres, available on the market today in this area featuring a unique and whimsical Geodesic dome home with a crystal clear in ground swimming pool. This southwest facing parcel features: large rich organic garden, mature plantings, fruit trees, two meandering streams, and is a perfect blend of open meadows, expertly developed and maintained lawn, mixed woods, and gardens. In the evening enjoy fabulous golden evening sunsets, stargazing, and even sightings of the Milky Way.
The unique geodesic dome was built using 105 triangles that are well insulated and consists of: a living room with views overlooking a pastoral setting and many miles of hills and valleys, a full bath, cozy kitchen, and loft sleeping area. In the wood frame addition there is a den, bedroom, and a gorgeous screened porch/sunroom with several interchangeable screens and windows. In the loft area, two of the skylights have insulated shutters that open and close allowing heat in from the Winter sun and to provide unequaled stargazing at night.
Approximately 30 acres of the land is wooded with some walking trails and the remaining 7 acres has some mixed woods, open pasture, lawn, beautiful gardens and a beautiful trail walk along one of the streams. This property also boasts: an interior/exterior sound system, underground power, excellent privacy, unusual specimen trees, a plentiful well, and a beautiful layered garden with organic matter that is not tilled for planting. Excellent potential for solar collectors and a rare opportunity for homesteaders, a family compound, or a beautiful private home setting. Located in Hope with an award winning school system, and in close proximity to Camden, Rockland, and Belfast and all of the fine restaurants, shops, art galleries, and other amenities they have to offer.
