We are proud to announce we closed on the highest sale in our 18-year history with our Camden agent Brian Wickenden representing the sellers. The one-of-a-kind oceanfront estate on 32 acres in Saint George, known as “Seasmoke Farm,” sold for $9,750,000. The property is also the highest-priced sale in Maine this year, the highest-priced property ever sold in Saint George, and the sixth-highest residential sale in state history.
“We are so fortunate to have set another company record high sale,” says Chris Lynch, President and Founder of Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty. “We pride ourselves on representing the finest homes in Maine and this is a great example of the power of our marketing and global property distribution systems through our affiliation with Sotheby’s International Realty.”
The Midcoast Maine estate was featured in Architectural Digest, highlighting the property’s stunning interior design and attention to detail while showcasing the natural landscape. The coastal getaway includes a shingle-style main house, two guest cottages, a pool house, and a farm, and was a collaboration between Portland-based landscape architects Mohr & Seredin, Alabama–based Cole & Cole Architects, and Atlanta interior designer Suzanne Kasler.
“It was an honor to list and sell this magnificent home,” says listing agent Brian Wickenden. “I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to meet and introduce prospective buyers to Seasmoke Farm. It was so much fun to see their reactions as they discovered each of the many special components of the property.”
“It is an extraordinary property in every sense of the word,” says Wickenden. “It’s a remarkable combination of very tasteful high-end construction along with a pair of wonderfully charming and rustic shorefront guest cabins. There is also a recreation building with an outdoor basketball court, and a working farm with two barns, a gorgeous apple orchard, plentiful vegetable gardens, and farm animals. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and there is a deepwater dock for easy ocean access, as well as a great freshwater pond on the property. It offers something for everyone in an incredibly beautiful and serene setting, all nestled on 32 private acres with over 1,800 feet of ocean frontage.”
“Behind the power of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand, Seasmoke Farm had tremendous marketing reach, and the feedback it generated was resoundingly positive,” adds Wickenden. “It was a thrill to be a part of marketing this one-of-a-kind property.” Seasmoke Farm was featured on multiple Sotheby’s International Realty affiliate offices’ social media platforms and email marketing campaigns. Editorial features included a profile in Mansion Global on resort-style homes, highlighting the estate’s beautiful custom-built pool house and additional rec building with a basketball court.
“We are grateful for the opportunity and very pleased with the record result as the listing agency for this incredible home,” adds Chris Lynch. “While I realize that records are meant to be broken, this clearly sets the bar very high.”
