Joyful, Lovingly Renovated Maine Island Cottage – Vinalhaven Island, ME – $259,000

Good Monday morning! This morning I’m imagining waking up in this bed, with this view, a newspaper, and a hot cup of coffee. Can you imagine this being your morning view?

This four-bedroom island cottage circa 1844 has been joyfully and lovingly renovated. I love how clear the owner’s joy at living here comes through by looking at her colorful touches and elaborate flourishes – the bright colors, Chinoiserie meets shabby chic, bright maximalism, plentiful flowers, a lavish garden! What a beautiful and fearless way to live! Take a peek at the photos below.

Per the listing:

This year-round home was built for one of the Bodwell Granite founders and is being carefully restored by the current owner. Period details are apparent throughout. A separate, independent section of the home may be used for an in-law apartment or an income-producing rental, year-round. The apartment space is on a separate heating zone. Close to town but in a neighborhood. Views of Indian Creek from some rear windows. Recent improvements include attic insulation, replacement windows in most rooms, copper pipes in the kitchen, copper valleys on exterior gutter, and a new oil tank. Lavish landscaping (photos are representative of the gardens, individual plants may vary from year to year), lovingly restored.
