Property description

Step back in time and discover the grandeur of The Bayview, designed by New York architect, Bradley Delehanty, and built for Major George G. McMurtry in 1930. Major McMurtry served in the Spanish American War as one of Theodore Roosevelt's 'Rough Riders', and in World War I as second in command of the famous 'Lost Battalion', for which he earned a Medal of Honor.

Boasting impressive views of Frenchman's Bay from a spacious terrace overlooking an expansive lawn, The Bayview offers a spectacular setting within walking and biking distance to and from both the village of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Well appointed and furnished with original antiques and collectibles from abroad, the interiors of this period home offer a variety of hospitable spaces for dining and entertaining. Further enhancing the privacy and comfort that this gracious home offers is a recently renovated kitchen, formal gathering spaces and nine bedrooms, six of which offer en-suite bathrooms.

FIRST FLOOR: A grand foyer leads to a variety of gathering spaces including the rear brick terrace overlooking the lawn. Spacious formal Living Room with water views, piano, harp and fireplace. Formal Dining Room with fireplace, water views, doors to terrace, and dining table for ten to twelve people. Warm and inviting Library with ocean views, fireplace and cable TV with DVD. Large and well-equipped Pantry and eat-in Kitchen with commercial style 10-burner gas range. Computer Room. Laundry and Utility areas including a dedicated room for floral arranging. Two coat and powder rooms, one for the ladies and one for the gents.

SECOND FLOOR: Sitting area at the top of the staircase offers a nice area outside the main bedrooms for quiet conversation. In this north wing, guests have the option of a Master Bedroom with King bed and water views, which leads through a sitting and dressing room to a private Bathroom with combined tub and shower. A second King Bedroom offers water views and a private Bathroom with combined tub and shower that can also be accessed by the master if desired. A third King Bedroom also with en suite Bathroom and combined tub and shower. The fourth Bedroom offers a Queen and another private Bathroom with combined tub and shower. Through to the south wing is a Bedroom with Double bed, water views, and private Bathroom with shower only and a Bedroom with Queen bed and private Bath with combined tub and shower. A staff wing offers three additional Bedrooms, each with a set of Twins and a shared Bathroom with combined tub and shower.

PORCH: A furnished, brick terrace enjoys very nice views of Frenchman Bay and a wonderfully expansive lawn below. A side terrace with awning offers a BBQ area and additional furnishings.

APPLIANCES: A very well-equipped Kitchen offers nice amenities such as a 10-burner gas stove, double oven and dishwasher. Wireless Internet and cable TV with DVD. Spacious laundry room with two dryers.
