0 miles from Camden
Owl`s Drift is located in the beautiful seaside village of Camden. It sits snugly on Pleasant Street, one of Camden`s quaint tree-lined side streets. Truly an in-town retreat with private gardens and a courtyard bounded by evergreens — guests may never suspect the village is just a five-minute walk away, complete with shops, restaurants, cultural events, and the beautiful waterfront and windjammers the town is famous for.
Recently completed is a restoration of the attached barn which is now a seasonal and completely unique addition to the house. Keeping the rustic charm of the barn, this space is now a library, an entertaining room, game room — truly multipurpose with doors out to the English gardens. Upstairs find a king bed and 2 twins in the upstairs loft — this is a great place for sleeping in warmer weather!
Owl`s Drift can sleep a total of 8 in three bedrooms and has three full bathrooms. As comfortable for 2 as it is for 8, Owl`s Drift is a well-appointed, year-round retreat.
Built in 1832, Owl`s Drift was completely renovated in 2010–2011 by local master craftsman Gregory Moore. Preserving the historical detail of the house was paramount and yet modern conveniences, necessities, and luxuries were cleverly incorporated. Owl`s Drift truly embraces the old and the new.
On the first floor, a sunny, well-equipped, custom kitchen is finished with beautiful granite countertops, a gas stove, a slate apron sink, dishwasher and a dining alcove. The kitchen opens into a living room accented with a fireplace (controlled by remote) and original Parson`s Cupboards above the mantel. Truly comfortable furnishings complete this room perfectly. A relaxed den off the living room offers a flat-screen television with cable, high speed Internet connection, and the house`s second remote-controlled propane fireplace.
One of the Owl`s Drift`s two master bedrooms is on the first floor. Known as the Yellow Room, this comfortably furnished room offers a queen-sized, four-poster bed. The fully renovated bathroom has been customized with a Greek soaking tub. This floor`s second bathroom is outfitted with a custom standup shower and also contains the laundry room.
Upstairs find the Elephant Room, Owl`s Drift`s second queen-bedded master. This bedroom is spacious, made cozy with drawers built into the eaves and custom-designed bookshelves tucked into the corners. Down the hall find the third bathroom complete with a claw-foot porcelain tub.
Tucked in the eaves at the back of the house is the Red Room; a darling room with 4 twin beds.
The property has recently seen the complete renovation of the attached post and beam barn. Outfitted with stunning antiques and comfortable furnishings, this section of the house can be used as a den or sitting room, a exceedingly quiet place to read and a fantastic place to visit.
This property is located in a residential area, two blocks from the center of town and Camden Harbor. This property is not waterfront.
