Property Description:

Built in 1907 in the Italian villa style, this spectacular home is one of the few remaining estates that survived the infamous 1947 fire. Lovingly and carefully restored to its former glory, East of Eden heralds the bygone Golden Age of Bar Harbor society. With careful attention to detail and enjoying plenty of modern day comforts, this home enjoys easterly views across Frenchman Bay and is within easy reach of Bar Harbor's village center. A private dock and two deep water moorings directly in front of the house are also included.

FIRST FLOOR: A grand tiled entry hall bisects this home and invitingly extends to the furnished brick terrace overlooking the green lawn sweeping down to Frenchman Bay. The South Wing features a Living Room with club style furnishings, large screen TV, fireplace and French doors leading to a covered brick terrace. One end of the terrace features a glass windbreak, making dining on a breezy afternoon or evening even more enjoyable. Also in this wing is the glorious music room overlooking the bay. Host to many informal concerts, this room is home to a Steinway grand player piano and large fireplace able to burn four-foot lengths. From the music room, enjoy a more intimate setting in the Game Room, where puzzles and games of all kinds can be played around a wonderful gaming table before the fire. Open the table to reveal a poker table for even more late night gaming!

The North Wing features a cozy Library with fireplace and volumes of all sorts. Further on is a stunning Dining Room with water views, fireplace, and dining table and chairs original to the house. The dining table can easily seat up to twelve guests. A roomy Butler's Pantry features two sinks, two dishwashers, extra two-burner range, full-size wine refrigerator, and full-size beverage refrigerator. The Kitchen is a caterer's dream: professional grade six-burner gas range, three ovens (one of them convection), griddle and broiler, an oversized dishwasher for larger pots and pans, a full-size freezer, and full-size refrigerator. Here, too, one finds a table that seats six, a cozy nook for relaxing before a gas-powered "wood" stove, and a convenient desk area for checking e-mails. Adjacent to the front entry hall, a bar with ice maker and small refrigerator creates an intimate setting for evening cocktails or after-dinner drinks. Three half baths are located on the FIRST FLOOR: by the Entry Hall, adjacent to the Living Room, and next to the Kitchen. A vast Laundry Room is also found adjacent to the Kitchen.

SECOND FLOOR: Six Bedrooms surround the second floor hallway, all of which enjoy water views save one on the west side of the house. Each bedroom features a king bed, private newly restored Full Bath with combined tub and shower, and gas-powered fireplace. The Master Bedroom Suite includes use of a private Sitting Room with TV and desk.

TERRACE: Two furnished brick terraces: on the southern end, a covered terrace features a glass windbreak, and a second terrace runs across the east face of the house and overlooks Frenchman Bay.

Note: This house is for sale. Please contact agent for details.

Ratings and Reviews

There are no ratings for this property yet.

Bar Harbor's village and surrounding rural residential areas are a popular destination for visitors to Acadia National Park. The town center offers diverse shops, restaurants and activities. Acadia National Park's Hulls Cove entrance, as well as other major entrances, are located just outside the village center. Not all properties listed as 'Bar Harbor' are actually in the village of Bar Harbor, since the town of Bar Harbor encompasses the northern half of Mt. Desert Island, most of which is quite rural in nature. However, homes within this area are usually between five and fifteen minutes' drive to the village center.
