Hulls Cove Neighborhood and the Lookout Point Peninsula
This Bar Harbor rental home features on-the-ocean shore frontage. The Oceansedge property sits on two acres of land with a magnificent view of the Cadilac Mountain Range and the porcupine islands. A beautiful place to relax on your luxury vacation.
Hulls Cove was the original 19th-century epicenter of the town (then called Eden). Hulls Cove became the location of several mansions owned by society mavens during the Gilded Age. The residents of Lookout Point Road collectively owned a pier. This pier is still in existence and in use near Oceansedge. The pier reached into Hulls Cove’s deep water. It has received the owners of the world’s greatest private yachts. Night-long social events followed at Hulls Cove’s mansions.
Oceansedge is located on a 100-acre peninsula surmounted by a spruce and pine hilltop. A private road (Lookout Point Road, discussed below) circumnavigates that peninsula. The luxury homes on the peninsula belong to a peaceful and private neighborhood.
Most properties on the east side of Mount Desert Island in Bar Harbor face east for the same reason. The Oceansedge property, almost uniquely faces south into the North Atlantic. The property thus also enjoys the ambiance of oncoming sea breezes. Here, you can experience the sight, sound, and smell of the moving ocean.
Privacy and Security
Access to the Oceansedge property is available only via a private, posted neighborhood-association road, Lookout Point Road. From Lookout Point Road, guests turn at a posted and private driveway. Overhead lights automatically illuminate the driveway upon entry onto the driveway; other lights progressively illuminate the driveway. The private driveway proceeds 1,000′ from the entrance to the house on the edge of the ocean. The parking area and circular entrance are also automatically illuminated.
A Luxury Escape
The set-apart aspect of the subject property (which is unusual relative to most rental properties in Bar Harbor), ensures quiet, solitude, and personal safety. Indeed that very same set-apart aspect of the subject property also makes for one of its unique attributes: the abundance of nearly tame wildlife which past guests have immensely enjoyed observing in close proximity.
