Property Description

Perched high atop Belfast Harbor you'll step back in time and find the Primrose Hill Historic District. Built in 1807 for Bohan P. Field, it has now been a landmark in Belfast, Maine for 214 years. The owners of this legacy estate lovingly and completely restored/renovated over 8,000 square feet bringing the home into 2021 standards. Overlooking Belfast Harbor from the previous sink, a dream kitchen was inspired, designed and brought to life by local craftsmen that fit the home's historic style - but introduced all the modern conveniences. Inspired by the original soapstone in the kitchen hearth which is still intact and used as a warming oven- the new kitchen is now accompanied with soapstone installed 200+ years later - bringing the past and present together harmoniously. Known and lovingly operated as the 'Harbor View Bed and Breakfast' - the convenient location on Primrose Hill is 3 homes up from the center of Downtown Belfast with the gorgeous shops, delicious restaurants, and vibrant arts community. The home is elegantly spacious, with a Main House, Ell, and 3 - level fully renovated Barn that is home to two apartments and also used an art gallery. Accessibility is also made simple by the use of the energy efficient, quiet, compactPneumatic elevator. The largest of it's kind it can comfortable transport 2 people and a wheelchair, or a few people and groceries. The home has had extensive upgrades and renovations but the charm remains. New electrical wiring, systems, and all have been inspected prior to bringing this home to market. The Harbor View House atop Primrose Hill is excellent for those who might want multigenerational living, a place to relax/entertain close to town, or those who might want to revive the desirability of a downtown Bed and Breakfast that is turn key and has the best views of Belfast Harbor year-round. You have to see the home to truly appreciate the details of the pumpkin pine floors, upgraded baths, and feel the gentle sea breeze.
