Property Description

A rare opportunity to own the historic Governor William King mansion with 1.3 acres of perennial gardens, hedgerows, and stone walls, all protected and surrounded by the original working horse farm and 300 acres of forest preserves. Enjoy pastoral views of horses in the fields, eagles flying overhead and dramatic sunsets from your pool -- you'll feel you are back in time - yet really only 5 minutes from shops and restaurants in Bath (named one of the Smithsonian Magazine's best small towns to visit in 2021),10 minutes from shopping and hospitals in Brunswick, and 45 minutes from downtown Portland. The current owners have done extensive work to the home and property over the past 17 years, adding new roofs, furnace, septic system, standby generator, updating wiring and plumbing, replacing many windows, creating a double height living room and master bedroom, designing and adding new landscaping and hardscaping, and installing a 16' x 40' in ground pool with hardscape, pool cabana, and privacy fencing that overlooks the fields below. The home has 4 bedrooms, 3 full and two half baths, with two bedrooms on each floor allowing for privacy. There is an English country style kitchen, beautiful antique millwork, a wonderful studio and a sunroom that has been converted to a chapel. The interior of the house is steeped in history and charm but with modern conveniences to ensure comfort and a fabulous house for entertaining. This property is surrounded by horse barns, fields and paddocks that the current owners will preserve as a private horse farm.
