Bar Harbor Bonanza: $6.75 – 120 Schooner Head Road

winterguide2015_cvrThe secret back passage to Acadia National Park is whispered among locals because “that’s the way you can reach Sand Beach without having to pay.” For those of us who can’t afford to go free, it’s hard to beat this property at Schooner Head Road. After you pass Jackson Lab on the right, “the house is through a gated drive on the left, right before Seely Road,” says listing agent Kim Swan.

The view from this 15.6-acre slice is “Frenchman Bay and looks right at Egg Rock and the Lighthouse.” Built in 1990, the contemporary structure faces 570 feet of waterfront and scratches Heaven with its vaulting ceiling.

Naturally, “it has the benefit of up-to-date kitchens and baths.”

Taxes are $36,684.
