Property Description

Famous Restaurant Location in Coastal Blue Hill

This historic building in coastal Blue Hill village, once the home of the iconic Firepond Restaurant, offers multiple opportunities for retail, restaurant and office development in one of Maine’s premier tourist destinations.
The circa 1885 building comprises over 4,000 sq. ft. on three floors. Since the 1970’s it has been operated as a restaurant with street level outdoor café seating, a year-round streamside porch and two other dining areas permitted for a total of 135 seats. The partially-equipped commercial kitchen is on the lower level. The upper level, an open floor plan studio with kitchenette, bath, and spectacular views of Blue Hill Bay, has been used for both retail and office space.
The location — overlooking a rushing stream amid the small shops and galleries of this walkable coastal village, and the building’s authentic character — barn-red clapboards and stable doors, weathered shingles, an inviting street-side deck, combine to create a unique sense of place and a town focal point.
In 2007 Coastal Living Magazine dubbed Blue Hill, Maine’s “Dream Town” for coastal living, calling it a “magnet for artists and writers attracted to both the peninsula's scenic beauty and the company of other creative souls”. The town is the service center for the six towns that comprise the Blue Hill Peninsula with retail sales trending up about 20% since 2011. For more information on the town and the area, please visit the chamber of commerce site: http:/www.bluehillpeninsula.org/blue-hill/.
66 Main is located on Route 172, Blue Hill’s Main Street and the chief corridor for through traffic to nearby Deer Isle and the county seat of Ellsworth, less than twenty minutes away. It is within walking distance of the harbor, the town’s waterfront park, numerous shops and galleries, and the Blue Hill Hospital.
Sellers are motivated to assist a new operator reopen the doors for the promising 2016 season. Both lease and sale offers will be considered.
