What’s Behind The Hatch Of This Million Dollar Maine Home?
Maine seems to have a wide variety of different home styles. From 19th century Victorian homes on the coast, to mansions in the mountains, to everything in between.
Most of these homes, even the really nice ones, don't hold any real surprises. Once in a while, though, these homes contain a big surprise.
This is the case with a lakeside home in Ellsworth.
According to Realtor.com, the 3,500 square foot home located at 6 Vista Way has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and SHIP'S HATCH! More on that later, though.
The home is finished with lots of polished wood, giving it a cool rustic look. There's a beautiful kitchen (with an awesome copper sink) adjacent to a living room that has lots of large windows in order to let in as much light as possible. All of the bedrooms are decent sized and the main bedroom even has an en suite bathroom with tub & shower. In the basement, there is a "man cave" / family room with a bar and a door that out onto the backyard.
Then, there's that ship's hatch. Located in the basement, it is a typical watertight hatch like those you'd have on nearly any type of metal boat... From a tugboat to a battleship. So, what secret does the hatch hide? According to the listing, there's a room behind the hatch that is perfect for storing valuables.
