Hulls Cove house description

All the charm of yesteryear with the comfort of the 21st century! Grand columned entry porch, English garden, delightful outdoor dining. Spacious and charming rooms, old world kitchen with bells and whistles, sunny breakfast room, copper sinked butler's pantry/bar with wine cooler, expansive foyer with fireplace, comfortable and tranquil living room, dining room for 10 with piano and sitting area, family room/home theater with fold out sectional, 3/4 first floor bathroom. Two stairs lead to four bedrooms, including newly redecorated master suite (king bed), one bedroom with a queen, one with a full bed (newly decorated and upgraded) and one with a twin. There is an additional double bed suite on the third floor as well as a generous laundry room. Coveted village location - quiet and enjoyable, but a stone's throw to all the activities you can imagine. You can walk everywhere! Let the beautiful church bells of St. Saviour's be your only alarm clock!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: We are a couple with four children who have enjoyed living in Bar Harbor since 1995. We are both architects and have lovingly restored this gem of a home to its glory while incorporating modern amenities and our own touches. We own another Bar Harbor property as well - the Cottage on Cottage - and enjoy traveling (we always rent homes when we travel and enjoy being able to provide similar comfort to other travelers!)

                      Why the Owner Chose Hulls Cove:
                      We purchased this home because having had few owners before us, it had retained most of its original features and charm, and as architects, we knew good bones when we saw them! Since then, the home has been totally renovated, and serves as an excellent design laboratory - even our most discerning clients have appreciated the hospitality and ambiance of this home!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The fireplaces, the wooden fretwork, the massive entry columns, oversized front door, the diamond paned windows...they just don't make them like this anymore! Elegant, but livable and oh, so well located!
