About the owner: We bought this home in September 2013. The home has undergone a complete renovation both inside and out. We retained many of the homes original features including stairway, hard wood floors on 2nd floor and front farmer's porch. We have modernized the interior with new cherry kitchen cabinets and stainless steel appliances, new electrical, plumbing, and heating with on demand hot water, two new bathrooms and stackable washer and dryer. This home offers a large back yard for enjoying the evening campfire and cook out.
Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor: We have watched this home for many years in its declining state and decided now is the time to rescue this home and restore it to it's original splendor. We hope you enjoy as much we do.
