Ledgemere, a Shingle-Style Estate on the Water in West Bath, Maine

Location: West Bath, Maine

Price: $1,750,000

A sign above the main entrance to this shingle-style estate declares its name, Ledgemere, to the world. That may seem slightly pompous to some, but the 4,200-square-foot residence once served as the clubhouse for the New Meadows Yacht Club, so maybe the sign is there to deter misguided oldtimers. Either way, the 3.5-acre property would make a swell private yacht club for the next buyer. It has 900 feet of water frontage, a deep-water dock, a boathouse, and easy access to the cruising grounds of Casco Bay. Landlubbers can enjoy the broad porches and casual cottage interiors.
