About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
The quintessential Maine summer house is lovingly maintained and furnished with antiques, while also offering the comforts required today. Up the curved staircase is one bathroom with shower and four small bedrooms (one queen, two doubles, one single). Downstairs is one bedroom (2 twins), a full bathroom, TV area, living room area, dining area (antique oak table seats 8), and large kitchen.
For many years part of an artists' colony at Bartlett's Harbor, this house was named 'The Red House' (though now gray-shingled). It is one of three houses on the west side of Bartlett's Harbor, a cove perfect for rowing and exploring. Children love to search for mussels, starfish, shells, seaglass, driftwood.

Year Purchased: 1914
About the owner: The Allens have owned this property since 1914, when Fred Allen, a Boston sculptor, and his young wife Agnes bought 'The Red House.' They followed Bela Pratt, another Boston sculptor, and Frank Benson, a Boston watercolorist, to form an artists' colony. Now owned by the younger Fred Allen (professor emeritas at UCLA) and his wife and three children with their spouses. Daughter Kathy Allen lives in New Jersey with her family and pets, and manages the rentals in addition to being a piano teacher.
Why the Owner Chose North Haven, ME, USA:
Grandparents Fred and Agnes Allen formed an artists' colony of rusticators at Bartlett's Harbor in 1914.
