Unprecedented opportunity to embrace and acquire a profound parcel of Freeport history complete with what is commonly held to be the best water views in town. Built and originally owned by Capitan Moses Look, who explored the North Pole with Admiral Perry, this home faces Eagle Island (Admiral Perry's Island) ten miles out as the centerpiece of a full panorama of Broad Sound and the high seas beyond! Greet the day and settle down with the stars from the 12-foot covered wrap around porch. Watch the weather, passing sail boats and ocean life including osprey, eagles, all variety's and ducks, and seals! Enjoy the sea breezes year-round from living room, dining room, primary suite, and three of five bedrooms upstairs. Even the first-floor laundry room has ocean views! Slip down to the beach from stairs just outside the generous mudroom. Enjoy the galley kitchen. Property includes 2 moorings in deep water (7 feet at low tide) and could accommodate a dock, although the seller finds the deeded stone pier access to be more than adequate for boating needs. Entire first floor is wheelchair accessible from the front ramp through to the primary suite. Property has been owned and maintained by the same family since Capitan Look transferred it to them in the 1940's. Recent updates include new appliances, custom vanities in both the first floor and upstairs bathrooms and new flooring in all but the living and dining room. Basement includes a partially finished bonus room, recently installed bath and a workshop. New Vieseman high efficiency furnace (3 Zones including basement), high efficiency wood-burning insert in the living room, and whole house on demand generator make this home must-see for year-round living. So peaceful and private, this property is ready for the next generation of ocean loving enjoyment. See it today! 5 bed septic design (1500 gallon tank) 6 bedroom home.
