An elegant Victorian home overlooking the Damariscotta River in Newcastle. Long a landmark property in the area, the home sits far back from the road and is framed by massive trees, surrounded by mature gardens and an inviting lawn sloping to the shores of the river to a private dock/float. Inside, much of the original charm has been retained with ornate trim and moldings, fireplaces, beautiful wood floors and a grand staircase. High ceilings and tall windows offer an open and airy feel along with a graceful floor plan ideal for entertaining guests. The large stately rooms include a formal dining room with an adjoining alcove of the first floor tower presently used as a music room, a comfortable living room and a cozy library with fireplace. The spacious eat-in kitchen has been updated and offers spectacular views of sunrises on the Damariscotta River. An outstanding feature is the generous screen porch with additional views of the river and a contiguous open deck. The screen porch functions as a summer dining and living room likely where you will want to spend most of your time during the summer months. The southern wing hosts a large space presently used as an art studio with its own updated full bath which could be easily converted back to an apartment with a bedroom above accessed by its own staircase and private entrance. Enjoy kayaking and swimming from your own backyard or outdoor games on the lawn. A great opportunity to live close to downtown Newcastle and Damariscotta with restaurants, coffee shops, theater, library and local retailers. Easy access to Route 1.
