Beautiful passive-solar house located in highly desirable East Blue Hill. Set back from the road on a private lot surrounded by evergreens and moss-covered rocks, this property offers seclusion, yet is only a mile and a half from the center of Blue Hill. This house is truly unique and environmentally sustainable, using a convective loop or ''envelope'' design. In winter, the sun warms the generous south-facing greenhouse transferring heat into the interior living areas of the home. In summer, an air chimney is opened allowing warm air to escape by convection, while drawing cooler air from the north side of the house. A comfortable temperature is maintained year-round and, even on the coldest days, the greenhouse stays well above freezing.An open concept kitchen/ dining area with gas range, a walk-in shower with handmade tile accents, two gorgeous stained-glass windows, and different levels give this house a spacious feel on a modest footprint. A small office building two hundred feet south of the house, with separate parking, is currently used by the owner as an acupuncture practice. Close to walking trails on Peter's Brook, as well as to the Yacht Club, there is much to explore just outside the doors. Blue Hill is a picturesque, year-round community, on the coast of Maine and close to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor.
