House Of The Day: Compound Fit for Kennedy Wannabes


The Kennedys might have rethought building their family compound on Cape Cod if they'd spotted this property first.

The $12 million Deer Isle property, dubbed Avalon, sprawls over more than half a mile of Maine coastline, overlooking the clear, ice-cold waters of Eggemoggin Reach. And it seems perfectly designed to serve as a family gathering place, with a main house and two guest cottages nestling into 43 pine-forested acres. All together it has 10 bedrooms, 10 full baths, a pier, dock, moorings and multiple secluded beaches.

Margaret Smith of the The Swan Agency Sotheby's International Realty has the listing.
