Exquisite Maine Summer House on coveted Harts Neck

  • 4 bedrooms
  • 4 bathrooms


Chimerique is a property where words often fall short when trying to explain and describe. The level of craftsmanship and design is awe-inspiring and rivaled only by the stunning location, overlooking the inner harbor of Tenants Harbor, Southern Island and the islands of Mussel Ridge. Situated almost directly on the water’s edge. Chimerique is private and peaceful, protected by stately pine trees embellished by thoughtful, natural landscaping
Designed and built by one of SummerMaine’s longest and most beloved clients, Chimerique is now available to rent for the first time. Chimerique’s sister property, Conifers, has been a popular vacation rental for years and is testament to the level of detail and thought the Owner poured into her properties
Chimerique is a newly constructed property located on the Shores of Harts Neck, a section of Tenants Harbor which has been home to summer residents for decades. Minutes to Tenants Harbor Village and a 5 minute drive to Port Clyde Village make this an idea location for those who wish to explore the area. Harts Neck is a dead-end road so many like to bike, walk and jog on this winding, tree lined street. The house also has the use of a shared dock for those who want to kayak, swim or fish
Although the house is newly constructed, the classic and high level of detail make you feel as if you have walked into a well-preserved summer home loved by generations. The configuration of the house makes it impossible to forget you are sitting right on the water – large windows, French doors and a two-thirds house-long deck with a cable railing system all work to maintain the endless views of outer Tenants Harbor, Southern Island and the Islands of Eel Grass Cove, and bold ocean
The master bedroom is on the first floor and occupies the left wing of the house – French doors open onto an upper level deck shared by the master bed room and kitchen, offering fantastic views of the water. The master offers a queen bed, lovely furnishings and a private bathroom with double sinks, a jetted soaking tub and a large, custom walk-in, tiled shower with a rain head. This bathroom has heated towel racks and a bidet
The Master bath, the kitchen and the 2nd floor bath share an 80 gallon gas hot water heater. The guest bath and half bath are on demand, gas fired
A small hallway, with direct access to the deck separates the master from the rest of the house
The kitchen is a lovely melding of old and new – think traditional design blended with high end appliances. The kitchen has a deep sink, stylestone granite countertops, a large peninsula for food prep or entertaining during meal prep, a gas stove top, wall oven, dish washer and warming drawer. The kitchen overlooks a small, informal dining area with seating for four – this is a cozy section of the kitchen, perfect for breakfast. There is also a wet bar with an icemaker
Off the kitchen is the laundry room with full capacity washer and dryer and the most amazing antique soap stone utility sink
The great room houses the formal dining room and the more formal family room. The family room is sunken with plenty of seating situated around a large fireplace and a large flat screen television. This room also opens onto the largest part of the deck, furnished with lots of outdoor seating
The downstairs sections of the second wing of the house has a half bath, two bedrooms and a full bath. The first bedroom has a Queen bed and overlooks the waterside of the property. The second bedroom has two twin beds and is located on the inside section of the property with peek-a-boo views of the water from one window. All bedrooms on the first floor have room darkening shades. The shared bathroom has a tub/shower combination
Upstairs is what we call the Common Room and it is a wonderful, well planned space. Located on the second floor of the house with a cathedral ceiling, the space is large and truly multipurpose. On one side of the partition (a large, smart closet space) are two double beds. This is a semi-private section of the common room. On the other side is a large family room area with couches and chairs and a large, flat screen television. There are also two twin beds situated under the eaves
Off the common room is a large bathroom/dressing room with a claw-foot tub with a shower, two vanities as well as a toilet and bidet
The common room is a great place for a family to gather after the sun has set, for kids to play while the adults visit downstairs or for a entirely separate living area for those who want their own space
