The most expensive house on the market in Maine goes to auction at the end of June. At $10.9 million, the Islesboro mansion is pricier than the top home in several other states according to Forbes, including some impressive estates in Maryland, Mississippi and South Dakota.
Given the disparity in the priciest homes by area, we decided to check the most expensive home listing in each of Maine’s 16 counties. We filtered out apartment buildings and anything with commercial space.
Keep in mind, these aren’t necessarily the most expensive homes in Maine, but if you’re looking to buy the priciest single-family home in a given county right now (a couple of these listings are only a couple weeks old), these are your options.
79 Sherbrooke Ave. in Lewiston ($849,000) is a four bedroom, 4,000-square-foot home on just over an acre with some great landscaping including a private pond. This is a fine house, but with no coast and no vast wilderness in Androscoggin County, this was bound to be the least-expensive home on the list.
At $995,000, 299 Lycette Road in Amity might not look like much. It’s a three-bedroom home with a hoop-style barn nearby. But it comes with more than 1,400 surveyed acres. That’s not quite National Park-sized, but more than enough for some privacy.
For $5.5 million, 1 Clapboard Island in Falmouth is an eight-bedroom, 9,000 square-foot house on 22 acres of island in Casco Bay. The island mansion was built in the 1890s. Realty company REMAX by the Bay upload a 12+ minute video of the property to YouTube:
83 Wigton Lane in Rangeley ($2,495,000) is 8 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms with more than 3,300 square feet of house. The property includes about 700 feet of Rangeley Lake waterfront.
As of this posting, there are seven houses listed for more than $5 million on Mount Desert Island, but the priciest is 111 Huntington Lane in Northeast Harbor, listed at $6,950,000. The 9 bedroom, 8,000 square foot home was listed in 2014 at over $8 million and has since seen two price reductions, so maybe you could think of it as saving about $1 million.
9 Dane Lane N in Belgrade is $2.5 million. For that you get 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms on Belgrade Lake. At 12,000 square feet, this is a house you could get lost in. That’s about the same square footage as a WalMart Express.
It’s a tie! For $7.5 million, you could get:
1 Sea Street in Rockport, 10,500 square feet and with 860 feet of harbor frontage, has three guest suites, each with a private balcony. Plus an eight room guest house.
99 Calderwood Lane, on Beauchamp Point in Rockport, includes a 5,400 square foot main house plus 1,900 square foot guest cottage. Built in 1903.
208 and 212 S Road in South Bristol, $4.5 million, offers 4,500 square feet on about 30 acres of land with 1,800 feet of water frontage. The listing says it was built in 1971, but the style feels classic.
We’ve got another tie. For $2.5 million, you could buy:
On Kezar Lake in Lovell, 98 Severance Lodge Road is a six-bedroom, 6,600-square-foot house on two acres of land. With wood interiors, this is the super deluxe edition of a Maine camp.
If you’re looking for a little more space, Saco River Ranch in Brownfield (address not disclosed) is on 173 acres in western Maine with a horse barn and plenty of room to ride.
Up on Lake Wassookeag in Dexter, you can pick up 29 Allagash Lane for $1,295,000. Described in the listing as a “waterfront compound” formerly owned by the Alfond family. Includes a tennis court and two seasonal cottages in addition to the year-round home. Note: There is also a $1.5 million listing in Bangor, but we didn’t count it on this list because it’s being sold with a buildable lot on Hogan Road.
In Lake View Plantation, you can get this Railroad Bed Road home on Schoodic Lake for $1,340,000. Cathedral ceilings, 800 feet of water frontage on nearly 30 acres.
A stone’s throw from Fort Popham in Phippsburg sits 4 Riverview Avenue, a 5,000-square-foot, eight bedroom house for $3,495,000. Built in 1882, according to the listing, it includes a guest house, artist studio, boat ramp and more.
Up in Lexington Township, you could snag this 5,000-square-foot lodge at 636 Hancock Pond Road for $1.25 million. Built on 109-acre lot.
Here we are, the most expensive house you can buy in Maine. The asking price for 180 Abrams Mountain Road in Islesboro is $10.9 million. That gets you an 8,000-square-foot home on a 15-acre lot with extensive Japanese-style gardens. Listing the features wouldn’t really do the thing justice, so here’s a video by the auction company:
This 3,000-square-foot home comes with a 60-acre private island. 1 Norton Island is part of Addison, and is not to be confused with the other Norton Island, just a couple miles away. The whole thing will cost you $1.9 million.
In Biddeford, 25 St. Martin’s Lane is a 4,500-square-foot home on Biddeford Pool. It’s within commuting distance of Boston, which probably contributes to the $7.2 million price tag.
