David Lee, nationally-acclaimed designer and builder of castles, fantasy cottages and hobbit houses, has engaged Tranzon Auction Properties of Portland, ME to sell his latest creation in an online auction starting July 31 and ending August 7.
“It’s such a great pleasure to be able to work with David on the sale of this spectacular creation” says Ruth Lind of Tranzon Auction Properties “Working with creative people to help them sell their work is such an honor.”
The house at 37 My Way, Boothbay, is built in the “storybook cottage” style, an architectural design tradition that extends from Marie Antoinette to Walt Disney. 
Partly inspired by the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien, the three-bedroom, 2,200+/- square-foot Boothbay home combines a Middle Earth aesthetic with contemporary sustainable functionality. 
Bringing to mind stories from Hansel and Gretel to Harry Potter, the cottage offers energy efficiency, design innovations and hand-crafted artwork throughout.
The exterior boasts heavy oak shakes that the builder intends to last 200-300 years. Geothermal heating and cooling, a gravity-based water supply and natural woodland landscaping represent only a few of the earth-friendly features of this property. A handcrafted well-house at the driveway comes wired for standby generator installation.
Designed with longevity in mind – this home offers so many unique features. Currently it is fully on-grid and offers the luxury of an easy transition to off-grid living. 
The online auction will be conducted from 1 p.m. Tuesday, July 31, to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7. Visit:
Previews: 11 a.m.- 2 p.m., Saturday July 20 and Tuesday July 30.
