This magnificent New England Victorian Style home sits quietly on six+ private acres overlooking the beautiful Penobscot River. Pristinely groomed lawns and gardens make the perfect setting for Weddings, Family Reunions, or a picnic proposal! A hidden staircase at the back of the Apple orchard leads down to the waters edge for a breathtaking view. At low tide we find treasures of smooth skipping stones. Surrounded by trees up and down the shoreline with only a scattering of houses along the opposite bank, this secluded spot gives us a spectacular view of wildlife including ducks, Canadian geese and Eagles.
The home itself Boasts over 4700 square feet of living space with five bedrooms, four bathrooms and endless built in charm. Full Kitchen with wall mounted fireplace and a large attached sun deck. Formal Dinning room. A family room with a unique black marble fire place. A bright sunny library and a 14x50 sunroom with slated floors skylights and panoramic views of the grounds, pool and river!
This home has so much to offer. Being perfectly located only minutes from Bangor International Airport, The Waterfront Concert Series, Live Theater, Micro Brew pubs and restaurants and endless entertainment options such as the Hollywood Casino and Raceway, and so much more. Yet being just far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet on the river.
Winter activities abound in this area! Down Hill and Cross Country Skiing weekends with friends is a must during our long winter months. Hermon Mountain Ski area is a quick twenty minute drive. So Much FUN! Cross Country Skiing and Snow Shoeing on miles and miles of groomed trails throughout the area only minutes from the doorsteps. Rocky Knoll Golf Club is located a mile away in Orrington and also offers fantastic CC ski trails!
Such a wonderful house. So charming. So BIG! Plenty of room to have a crowd of friends. Loved all the built in fireplaces. The property is gorgeous! Full of blooming trees and flowers! Thank you for everything. We will be back!
We wanted a place to spend vacations and holidays on the waterfront, saw this home for sale sitting vacant and fell in love with it instantly! We are enjoying it with family and friends but would like to offer it to others when we are not able to be there. Its just too wonderful to go unused!
As soon as I drove through the gates, I saw the apple trees in the orchard, the massive lawns, the hedges and stonework and said 'Wow! I didn't even know this was here'
A hidden treasure. The fieldstone masonry surrounding the house itself was impressive to me. Entering the home through the 14x50 sunroom was indescribable. For a home of its age I was happy to see how well it had been maintained and updated through the years. Yet the charm and elegance of the home remained intact. From the built in fireplaces to the antique light fixtures all I could say was 'Perfect'
This fantastic home sits overlooking the Penobscot River on nearly Seven private acres and is located only minutes away from the Bangor Waterfront Concert Series, Hollywood Casino, Micro Brew Pubs, Hermon Mt. Ski area, Cross Ins Center and UMO!
