Bar Harbor House

Hey, who wouldn't want a 9 foot tall Rosewood elephant in their foyer?

This piece of property was apparently once owned by relatives of both Alexander Hamilton, a founding father of our country and the 1st United States Secretary of the Treasury, and JP Morgan, the banker and financier from way back who eventually started the now famous J.P. Morgan & Co.

Looking at the stonework left over from way back when you just have to wonder what once stood there on this property.  But, what stands there now if pretty darn impressive as well.

The property at 18 Eagle Lake Road in Bar Harbor is listed at $3,750,000, by Steve Shelton of Acadia Realty Group.   You can call him at (207) 667-7423.  It houses six bedrooms and five bathrooms within 7,682 square feet.

What a vantage point of Frenchman Bay!  Just imagine sitting with the clan out back and admiring the view of the islands and maybe a cruise ship moored in the harbor!

The stonework and staircasing in the foyer is remarkable, along with the wood beams in the ceiling and the wooden floors.

There's no doubt that you'd impress the neighbors if you owned this place!
