A $7.5 million mansion on a private island in Maine needs a new owner

A sprawling island resort in Falmouth, ME., can be yours for $7.5 million.

The 10,849-square-foot mansion is prominently located on one end of Clapboard Island. There is another house at the other end, with protected land abutting the two lots.

The island home is located on 22 acres and is a short boat ride from the mainland.

“The privacy here is absolutely amazing,” says the listing agent. Christina KennyFrom Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty. “There are only three parcels of land on the island, one of which is a protected reserve of about 14 to 15 acres. I like the feeling of seclusion, but you can just look across the mooring field and see the mainland.





The 13-bedroom estate is located along a stunning 3,200 feet of ocean frontage that offers stunning views of Casco Bay.

“Inside, it’s absolutely stunning,” Kenny says. “I’m in awe of all the details. For example, there’s an arched doorway under the grand staircase that’s so beautiful. It’s really well done and has a coastal New England feel, but it’s also homey and classic.”

The wood-paneled living room features exposed beam ceilings. Floor to ceiling stone fireplace. And arched entrances. Better yet, it’s freshly painted and move-in ready.

“I could see the property being a multi-generational family reunion venue of sorts,” Kenney says. “There are great places to gather together, but each family can also have their own separate space. The huge dining room would be a great gathering place with a fireplace. It opens up with a Dutch door that leads out to the balcony, so you get a wonderful sea breeze all around you.”

The well-restored home comes with a few caveats: there is no air conditioning, and heating is limited.

“It is a seasonal property that we believe is best designed for use from April to November,” Kenney points out. “It would be a great second home for someone looking to go south for the winter. There’s no air conditioning, but the attic hatch opens to a widow’s top that lets in cool breezes.





Some upstairs bedrooms have fireplaces, while others have access to a private terrace.

The property also includes a three-bedroom guest cottage, barn, boathouse and playhouse. Additionally, the land includes a deep-water dock and mainland parking for easy transportation back and forth to the island.

Bring a boat!

Fellow sailors, take note: You’re on your own when it comes to water transportation. There is no ferry service available, so you will need a boat or water taxi to take you to and from the mainland. Kenny points out that the island is located just 10 minutes from Falmouth and about 20 minutes from downtown Portland.

“I see the next buyer as someone multi-generational who wants a classic coastal home to share with their family and friends,” she says. “It feels like a stately estate, but it is very comfortable and inviting.”
