"Old Homestead" is a much admired property that is full of charm, enjoys a superb location and is deeply rooted in Northeast Harbor history. The original section was built in 1820 by John Manchester, the grandfather of noted architect Fred Savage. After being moved to its present site, a Fred Savage designed addition was constructed in 1900. The present owners, while being excellent stewards of the architecture and history, have brought the dwelling into the 21st century with a new kitchen sitting room, first floor master suite, 3-bedroom guest cottage and numerous structural and mechanical improvements. A welcoming porch spans the length of the front and looks over the garden onto a spacious fenced-in lawn. With a total of 18 rooms, 10 bedrooms, 7.5 baths and 8 fireplaces, the house is a perfect summer retreat. The original section and kitchen addition can function on their own for use in the colder months. An easy floor plan, lots of light and good sized rooms are additional amenities. This is an opportunity to purchase the kind of Northeast Harbor property that may only come available once in one's lifetime.
