ISLESBORO, Maine (AP) - A sprawling 8,000-square-foot Maine island home loaded with original Asian artwork is going up for auction at the end of the month.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1UCTV5s ) there will be no reserve price when the bidding kicks off on June 25 for “The Froggery,” a “special house” that sits on more than 15 acres of protected mountainside land overlooking Penobscot Bay.

Chad Boykin, market development director for Florida-based DeCaro Luxury Auctions, says he’s never seen anything quite like the three-bedroom, three-bath Islesboro estate.

The grounds of the compound include an authentic Japanese stroll garden, complete with koi ponds, reflection pools and Zen gardens. Nautical and Asian design influences highlight the interior of the home, completed in 2010.

The estate was previously listed for $10.9 million but did not sell.
