On the Market: A Rustic Island Retreat
This one-of-a-kind abode is a short boat ride from Vinalhaven.
2A Green’s Island, Vinalhaven, Maine
Size: 1,980 square feet
Consider your search for an off-the-grid getaway officially over. This pine-tree covered island off the coast of Vinalhaven offers a 3.7-acre retreat, complete with water frontage and plenty of unspoiled natural beauty.
The home on Green’s Island brims with rustic charm, but it’s also just plain rustic. The property is part breezy island abode, part improvement project. It needs a cistern and a generator installed so the house can have running water and electricity. (At the moment, there isn’t a functioning bathroom with both a toilet and a shower.) A rickety dock needs work, too.
And yet just over $300,000 doesn’t seem so bad for a one-of-a-kind home with a custom-built stone fireplace. The main house offers three bedrooms and a huge eat-in kitchen, while a separate cabin with a basement workshop sleeps four. Plus, if a break from all that rustic charm becomes necessary, the shops and restaurants on Vinalhaven are only a short boat ride away.
