High up on Hamilton Hill commanding one of the most majestic and magical views on Mount Desert Island is this compelling and eccentric mansion that was home to the 2023 Bar Harbor Designer Showhouse. The breathtaking design and jaw-dropping ocean, island, and mountain views are one of a kind. Situated on 6 acres, an extremely large lot for the village confines, the current 6 bedroom, 4 bath home sits in the middle of the acreage with the ruins of the former estate, Thirlstane, closer to the front boundary. There is ample room for another residence to be built with spectacular views. Commercial use or vacation rentals are not permitted, but a second residence can be built. Four fireplaces, marble staircase, large wooden beams and exotic stone work are a few of the treasures here. A private estate setting near the shops, restaurants, and waterfront of downtown Bar Harbor, next to Kebo Valley Golf Course, and moments from Acadia National Park make the future of this property endless and priceless.
