Description

MERRILL HOUSE – $1,499,000 Merrill House is an enchanting 9,600 SF Early American Mansion and Estate spectacularly situated along the picturesque Ellis River in Andover, Maine with riverfront and Mahoosuc mountain vistas. It is a half-hour from Sunday River Resort, and close to many ponds, lakes, rivers in the Rangeley Lakes Region, and many back-country adventures in Maine’s Western Mountains. The estate features 126 combined acres of pristine fields and forest including a private spring-fed pond with beach, manicured lawns and landscape architecture, gardens, open fields with valley vistas, and walk-paths. Approach the mansion through stone gates and a winding driveway. Enter the expansive Great Hall, standing 30′ x 60′ and another 30′ high at the apex of its cathedral ceiling, with a 12′ wide showcase granite hearth and mantel and dramatic furnishings. Enjoy the porches and parlors, the formal dining room, 14 fireplaces, 16 bedrooms, 6+ baths, and 2 full kitchens. Completing this magnificent property is a finely crafted, 2,500 SF, 4-bedroom caretaker’s cottage, large barn, 3 sheds, and wood-working shop. The estate is the legacy of publisher Henry Varnum Poor, founder of Standard & Poor’s, and boasts architectural contributions from Stanford White and Frederick Law Olmsted. The original farm was carved from the wilderness in 1791 by Ezekiel Merrill, the first homesteader in the valley. The estate has remained in the same family for 230 years. Separately available for $699,000 are 101-acres of forest and valley lots, with 0.6-mile riverfront, tree growth plan, and a lucrative Solar contract. Mansion contents are available for $100,000.
