Wonderful 1820ís Farmhouse with post and beam barn has much to offer! Located on 15+/- beautiful acres with 75' of tidal frontage located across the road. This property would make a great homestead, Bed & Breakfast or horse farm with plenty of usable acreage. The home offers 3 bedroom, 2 bath, original woodwork throughout with some exposed beams, front porch, attached studio/art room, library room and several out buildings.
Interior Features Farmhouse with two chimneys, original woodwork throughout the home-some exposed beams. Attached outbuildings include large woodshed which was converted to Art/Sculpture studio of Chenoweth Hall; chicken house converted to Book/Art storage; large barn with floor to ceiling windows (housed masts and sails, wagon and draft horses, and a milk cow or two) Unattached buildings are the ice house next to the garage built when they acquired a truck for the store. Indoor plumbing and a furnace were first installed in the late 1940's. Mechanical systems have been diligently upgraded and serviced through the years. A concrete floor was put into the basement. The breezeway was added in the 1960's. The relief carved panels on the kitchen door were done by friend and Maine author Ruth Moore. A traditional cottage garden lines both sides of the driveway.
Exterior Features 15 Acres including a 75 ft. strip of shore land and a natural spring 1500 ft. upland of the house which is the fresh water source. The shore property is part of the estate, not just right of access. In the early days, goods for the general store were delivered by ship. There was a large stone wharf on the shore and remnants of the wharf are still visible at low tide.
Additional Features and Amenities The Asa Cole house was built in early 1800 and has never left the Cole family. Asa became the first postmaster of Prospect Harbor in 1825 and a Cole held that office until Miriam retired in 1976. Miriam's grandfather Louis, and his brother John operated a general store, containing the post office, which Louis continued to run until his death in 1954. He inherited the house from his father, David a sea captain in the Cuba sugar trade. Louis' wife, Susan, in her long-running Ellsworth American column referred to her home as Sunny Slope Cottage. For a few years she served meals for several summer families. The past generations of Cole men were surveyors, justice of the peace, merchants and seamen.
