Waterfront ranch style home with oversized 300' wide lot faces west for spectacular sunset views over Penobscot Bay. enjoy your own pebbly beach access at the edge of a tranquil tidal cove. This mid-century home still has the original finishes and, with some cosmetic upgrades it could be a cool, modern masterpiece. Original double sided fireplace and hardwood floors anchor the main living area, with lots of glass and access to a waterside deck. Let your vision take hold! Three bedrooms and two baths are on one end of the home, and the vintage kitchen, laundry and attached two car garage are on the other end. In the full basement there is an oil-fired boiler with updated boiler mate and the poured concrete basement is in fine shape. There is also a cute antique, seasonal cabin on the property with its own well and holding tank septic system. this adds considerable value as it is currently considered a separate parcel and future division could be possible. The property also offers an extra garage building for boats and equipment. Backshore road is a private, dead end road that is very close to Castine's Backshore beach...a recreation area with great swimming and water sport opportunities. The charming village center of Castine is about a mile away where historic elm-lined streets have delighted pedestrians from near and far for over 200 years.
