260 Horn Road, Harrington, Maine, 04643
Talk about a one of a kind coastal home! Located at 260 Horn Road in Harrington, ME, there is a brand new house that was exclusively built to provide an exceptional quality of living in a private oasis. Sitting on 45 ultra-private acres with stunning views of Pleasant Bay and boasting over 3,500 square feet of living, every square inch of this property’s interior and exterior space is absolutely show-stopping!
Scattered across the property there are acres of fields and healthy 150-year-old apple trees that are still bearing fruit. There are three cascading trout ponds accented by a dock, a custom built in-water granite bench, and fish feeder. The bottom of the ponds are lined with crushed gravel and fed by 11 natural springs on the property. The large pond averages 18’ in depth and has a stocking permit from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife for 1,000 brook, rainbows, and brown trout.
Another feature that makes this property so special- hydroelectric power! It is not often that homes are set up to use the power of moving water to generate electricity, but this one is! The property has been permitted for hydropower and most of the infrastructure is already in place -- all that’s left to do is secure a turbine, battery bank, and inverter and you’re ready to power your entire house with hydropower!
A few more big pluses for this property: your own two acre gravel pit that you can pull from to maintain all the trails and roads that meander across the property, space for at least six sizable food plots intended for premiere whitetail hunting, and high quality pasture for livestock.
Off to the side of the house you will see the stunning, board and batten, stained, cider barn that has been completely renovated. The barn, built in the 1860’s, is highlighted by hand hewn, timber framed bones that are as solid as they were 160 years ago! The barn sits on a fiber-reinforced concrete pad with a lean-to off both the backside and right-hand side of the barn for tractors, firewood, added storage, etc. Between the barn and the house is a generator shed with an industrial propane generator that can power the entire property at any moment.
The house, as it is designed now, is a spacious five bedroom, four bathroom home with milled beams throughout. While the house is unfinished on the inside, it is completely dried in and ready for the finishing touches. There are impressive 14’ ceilings on the first two floors and 10’ ceilings in the full basement that has radiant floor heating. The second floor master has unmatched views of the ocean with plans drawn up to add a beautiful deck off the bedroom. To top things off, there is a 12’ indoor waterfall that drops into an indoor/outdoor trout pond! Imagine being able to fish from your own living room?!
With so many unique features, qualities, and opportunities for you to infuse your own personal tastes and preferences into the final touches of this house, this property is truly in a class of its own. No words, pictures, or video will do this estate justice. You’ve got to come see it with your own eyes!
