Description from manager

One of the largest homes on the island, Ilfracombe is a landmark for those traveling along the coast. Built in 1927 this classic cottage will enchant you with its vast views and grand ambiance. The front entryway of Ilfracombe is classic Maine cottage, with the intriguing addition of the phone installed in the hallway for the former owner. The main level is exceedingly comfortable beginning with the large library with fax machine and fireplace, and seating area surrounded by windows. Privacy and quiet are yours in this home, except perhaps if you choose to make good use of the living room with its card table and ideal cocktail party atmosphere.

There is a large fireplace in the family room and one in the dining room and wood is provided for those chilly Maine evenings. During the day, the windows can all be opened to take in the fresh breezes from the ocean and the wonderful pine tree smells. The expansive brick terrace accessed from here has views that extend to the horizon, with no other homes visible. The large formal dining room that has hosted state dinners can sit 12 people comfortably and the adjoining informal breakfast room can seat 6 people. A large pantry room with bar area is equipped for hosting barbeques and more. The charming kitchen has had a new stainless steel refrigerator and 5 burner gas range added. Also on this level is a laundry room with a queen bed and a sleeping porch with a double bed.

The upper level has a back wing with a full bath, a bedroom with a twin bed, and 2 bedrooms with bunk beds + 1 twin bed, which works well for kids craving their own space. The main part of the home has six bedrooms: The master bedroom with a queen bed offers a private balcony and attached bath with tub/shower; bedroom with twins, bedroom with king, and a bedroom with 2 doubles. There are two additional full baths and a half bath on this level, for a total of four full and two half baths in this cottage.
