Clapboard Island is a one-of-a-kind island estate in Casco Bay, located in a prime location, away from the world but minutes from reentry. While it is entirely private and utterly remote in feel, Clapboard Island is conveniently close to the mainland town of Falmouth, 5 minutes away. Just a few minutes farther is the exciting city of Portland. At low tide, Little Clapboard Island, part of the main property, is reachable via a sandbar for picnicking and swimming.
The spectacular home on Clapboard Island, built by a Philadelphia philanthropist more than 120 years ago, has recently gone through a massive restoration, including new mahogany decks, teak outdoor furniture, all-new high-end kitchen appliances, and bathroom updates, and a lighter and brighter coastal interior decor. The newly renovated Clapboard Island can comfortably sleep up to 16 guests with additional optional space in a quaint antique farmhouse for six. Ultra-high-speed internet service is provided throughout the property.
The stunning Clapboard Island home is set on 22 pristine acres, which offer hiking trails, five swimming beaches, a helicopter landing area, and a large deep-water pier, dock, and mooring system. The property is part of a larger island of 40 acres, with most of the remaining land designated as a conservation area, featuring its own beaches and trails.
