art and science at the edges of Mount Desert Island, Maine
About the Author John Bryan is a noted architectural historian and professor of art history at the University of South Carolina. The town of Islesboro occupies an eponymous island in Penobscot Bay , on the central Maine coast. The island is roughly shaped as two lobes joined by a narrow isthmus. The Philler Cottage is located close to the village of Dark Harbor, at the northern end of a peninsula that juts south from the southern lobe of the island.
It is set on a roughly triangular property bounded on the north by Pendleton Point Road the main north-south road on that part of the island and on the south by Jetty Road. The roof is pierced by two brick chimneys and several dormers with gable roofs , and is topped by a widow's walk railing.
The long sides of the house each have an entrance sheltered by a porch with Tuscan columns, and an upper-level balustrade with posts topped by urns. A two-story porch, also supported by Tuscan columns, adorns the west side.
