This lovely Federal style house is one of the original homes in Somesville, Town of Mount Desert, Maine. John Somes purchased the land in 1803 and shortly thereafter built the home that sits at 8 Oak Hill Road. Situated on one acre, the home was completely reconstructed in 1990. The reconstruction included all new mechanical systems, plumbing, wiring, roof, and siding. An two story addition was built at that time that features a family room with fireplace on the first floor that opens onto a lovely terrace. An indoor pool and two car garage with storage were also added at that time. A beautiful fall and spring garden designed by Patrick Chasse was installed surrounding the stone terrace. Since 2006 additional improvements have been made including a new kitchen, extensive fencing, miscellaneous updating, interior painting of all surfaces, new carpeting throughout, insulation added, and resurfacing of pool . The home has been maintained meticulously. Amenities are numerous and include 3 fireplaces; a full bathroom for each bedroom; lovely screened in porch on the first floor and open porch on the second floor, each having views of Somes Harbor; a full house generator; a full security system; and walk up storage above the two car garage. This property is ideal for summer or year round living and enjoys an ideal location on Mount Desert Island.
