Step off the Peaks Island ferry and take a 5-minute walk to the amazing homestead that awaits you on 70 Luther Street. The 1860s farmhouse built by Captain Luther Sterling for his wife Elizabeth sits atop the hill with a gracious red barn tucked behind it.

The .6 acres of land was once covered in apple trees and is now adorned with extensive organic native flowering and fruit plants. The street side of the home is lined with gorgeous old-growth lilac trees.

Meticulously rebuilt from the studs out 15 years ago, every part of this incredible special home was thoughtfully designed and executed. The original home was expanded to a 10 room, 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home with a delightful red barn that serves as workshop, garage, office, and even in-law suite with full bathroom. The details on this home are a jaw-dropper (full summary available in home). The custom woodwork and stonework in the home include: custom-crafted fir-wood lockers and cabinets in the entrance, a kitchen bar repurposed from a 200 year old plank of pumpkin pine, a black slate sink salvaged from Fort McKinley on Great Diamond Island and brought back to life in Monson, a fireplace hearth and incredible shower made from Maine granite, a wood stove with green soapstone, and even southern yellow pine flooring through the home with fir wainscoting and pine windows and doors.

The first floor primary suite, originally the carriage house, offers a cool sleeping loft, walk-in closet with built-in shelving, and a custom-built shower with Maine granite. In addition to the living room with wood stove, custom kitchen and dining room surrounded by windows, other rooms on the first floor include a media room, a den with built-in homework desks, built-in office space, and a half-bath. The second floor offers three bedrooms with ample closets, a full bath, and laundry closet.

Bonus: Large lot, outdoor shower, outdoor utility sink, 10 x 14 garden shed, and large woodshed.
