About Property Manager/Owner
I am the great great granddaughter of Ebenezer Haggett who owned this property with his children and it is titled, "the Haggett Homestead". Ebenezer was famous as a shipbuilder who built the five masted schooner. Ebenezer had his ship building company in Newcastle which is now the Lincoln Home and built such beautiful ships as "the Elizabeth", "the Josephus", "the State of Maine". The craftsman in the home is mirrored after the ships with wainscoting and maple flooring.
Property Manager/Owner purchased this House in 2001
Why Property Manager/Owner chose Newcastle
The property is part of Maine history - with the wide pumpkin pine flooring, lovely architecture, quaint parlor and ballroom. Glidden Street was captured in DownEast Magazine as "Newcastle's Lovliest Lane". The countryside and beautiful federal homes provide the setting for Jane Austen's "Emma".
What makes this House unique
Close to town and shops, yet quiet and private; lovely sitting rooms for conversation, reading, quilting knitting; Porch setting which overlooks the Damariscotta River-- great for having coffee in the morning. Spacious rooms for friends and family
