Interest in buying $8M Maine island is high, agent says
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The listing agent for a private island that is on the market in Maine says the property is attracting significant interest from buyers.
Developer John Cacoulidis bought 86-acre Hope Island in 1993 for $1.3 million and it's on the market for $7.95 million. The island has a mansion, guest houses and a barn with workers quarters.
Real estate agent John Saint-Amour says he has received "dozens of calls and emails" about the island. He says he has also hosted a few showings and three more are planned for over the next week.
The island property is located in Casco Bay, about a 25-minute boat ride from Portland. It also has a 10-stall horse barn, a private chapel and a deep-water pier.
