Property Description

A rare opportunity to own a uniquely beautiful 38.39 acre property in a private setting located on the edge of downtown Bath. Enjoy the sunrise and sunset from Governor William King's original hilltop Gothic manor and know you are a steward to one of Maine's most important historic homes. The granite home sits high with views of the private park-like setting including perennial gardens, long hedgerows, fruit tree's, forests, fields of Timothy hay and charming fully equipped barns all adjacent to 300 acres of trails in the Thorne Head / Sewall Woods Preserves across Whiskeag Road. Live in total privacy on the 38.39 acres (22 acres in conservation easement) and be part of the community; you're only 5 minutes from shops and restaurants in Bath (named one of the Smithsonian Magazine's best small towns to visit in 2021),10 minutes from shopping and hospitals in Brunswick, and 45 minutes from Portland. The current owners have done extensive work to the home and property over the past 17 years, adding new roofs, furnace, septic system, standby generator, updating wiring and plumbing, replacing many windows, creating a double height living room and master bedroom, designing and adding new landscaping and hardscaping, and building full equine infrastructure. The home has 4 bedrooms, 3 full and two half baths, with two bedrooms on each floor allowing for privacy. There is an English country style kitchen, antique millwork, a wonderful studio and a sunroom converted to a chapel. The interior of the house is steeped in history and charm but with modern conveniences to ensure comfort. Additionally, the owners installed a 16' x 40' in ground pool with hardscape, pool cabana, and privacy fencing that overlooks the fields below. There is a main barn complex with 8 full horse stalls and a heated tack room, a second barn with stalls, and fenced fields. This is a fairytale property for anyone wanting to nurture their soul with an amazing spot on this Earth.
