Former Redbird on the Market

MOUNT DESERT — The former Redbird Provisions restaurant building on Sea Street in Northeast Harbor has been renovated for use as a private residence or guest accommodations and is now on the market.

The restaurant did not open this summer. In April, the town’s planning board approved plans by the owners, Michael Phillips and Dominick Coyne, to convert “existing restaurant use, office space and rooms into a four-room hotel/motel.”

Now called Red Bird Townhouse, it has five bedrooms and four baths.

The building and one-fifth-acre lot is listed with the Knowles Company for $995,000. The town’s assessed value of the property is $640,900.

The building is listed as a residential property on the Knowles website.

“With sweeping harbor and mountain views, this shingle-style year-round cottage offers in-town living at its best,” the website description reads. It also notes that there is a “hotel-motel license in place.”
