Miss Alley, currently experiencing a slight career revival thanks to “Dancing with the Stars,” is looking to tango her way out of homeownership of a frilly, ladylike cottage in Islesboro, Maine. Unbeknownst to many, Kirstie is the long-time owner of a cottage nestled on a private 16 acres with gorgeous waterfront property on pretty Islesboro Island. Built in 1993, the property measures 3,371 square feet and was purchased in April 2003 for $1,150,000. If you’ve never heard of Islesboro Island, you’re not alone. It’s a very quiet community accessible only by ferry or private plane. While it’s not your traditional celebrity hot-spot, Kirstie counts John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston as nearby neighbors. They’ve been part-time residents on the islands since sometime in the 1990′s and had their vacation home featured in a 1999 issue of Architectural Digest.
Kirstie Alley’s on-the-market home has an asking price of $2,350,000 and is described as having “the beauty of new and the charm of yesteryear…. A family retreat that will give an otherwise hectic life some peace and tranquility” The home’s architecture is filled with cozy nooks, fireplaces, and sunshine galore. High ceilings, beautiful woodwork, granite countertops and more make this home an appealing vacation retreat. The home sits right on the shore, and a sprawling deck and pier round out this waterfront abode.
