The family of Dan Fogelberg has listed the late “Leader of the Band” singer-songwriter’s Maine property for $2,425,000.

Tucked on the shore of Gray’s Cove off Eggemoggin Reach in Deer Isle, which Fogelberg famously wrote about in his song “The Reach,” the 5.5-acre property at 48 Oak Point Road boasts 800 feet of beachfront and embraces the beauty of the natural landscape by combining stunning waterfront views with New England charm. The three-bed, five-bath (two full, three half) luxury home, which measures 6,575 square feet, was completed in 2004. Fogelberg died in 2007, but his widow, Jean, continued to live in the home.

“Coming inside, it feels like you’re going into a house that has lots of stories and history. Their personalities are there, and they loved being there,” said Jill Knowles of The Christopher Group, who has the listing. “It really has this wonderful old soul feeling.”

A gravel driveway leads up to the circular drive in front of the home, where a welcoming front porch greets you. There is also a porch on the opposite side of the home facing the water. An entrance hall boasts impeccably crafted woodwork. Despite being built only 20 years ago, an air of history remains.

To the left is the living room, which has a cozy nook in the corner suited for reading or listening to music. The dining room features a raised fireplace and several pieces of custom, hand-crafted oak furniture that are included in the sale of the home. Found beyond the dining room, the sunroom features floor-to-ceiling windows and beautiful views. A “southwest” room, which features wide-format tile floors, built-in bookcases, a fireplace, and a library, is a welcome additional space. 

The wood stairs at the entry lead up to the second story, where you’ll find the primary bedroom. Equipped with an en-suite bath featuring dual sinks, a shower, and a soaking tub, the primary suite also has a walk-in closet and a propane fireplace. There are two additional bedrooms and a shared full bathroom on the second floor.

Continue up to the third floor, which currently functions as an artist’s studio. Boasting sunshine from skylights and a half bath of its own, the space could easily function as a home office or a yoga room.

“It could be any kind of workspace,” Knowles said.

A mostly finished basement features a variety of spaces, including a laundry room with a chute from the primary bedroom, a bonus room, and a music room or office. 

The heated two-car garage has a stairway that leads up to a second-floor studio, which could function as an additional bedroom with a half bath. Expertly crafted, the space features beautiful wood walls.

“My favorite feature is how comfortable the house feels. You just feel like you have arms wrapped around you because it’s just a comfortable house that was built with a lot of love,” Knowles said.

You can buy Dan Fogelberg’s former home in time for a summer retreat and holiday gatherings. It won’t be the same old lang syne.
