Property Description:

Sited prominently in the heart of West Street's Historic District, Greenlawn is an exquisitely restored, oceanfront cottage offering commanding views of Frenchman Bay and Bar Island. This incredible, Shingle-style home has been lovingly and completely renovated with superior craftsmanship and amazing attention to detail. Originally built in 1887, the grand, year-round cottage has large windows that fill the interior spaces with wonderful natural light and frame the sweeping views of the bay. Amenities include 6 en-suite bedrooms, a 1-bedroom guest apartment, 9 fireplaces, and a delightful gourmet kitchen with an 8-burner Viking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, custom cabinetry and honed granite counters. The large master suite offers two walk-in closets, dual master bathrooms and a separate wood-paneled den with a fireplace. Wonderful floor plan is ideal for entertaining with large living room with fireplace, a library with mahogany paneling and book shelves, a formal dining room and a delightful, 4-season sun room with a fireplace and wet bar. Butler’s pantry with icemaker, sinks, refrigerator, ample storage and a working dumb waiter. Many of the common rooms have access to the large blue stone terrace overlooking the water and lovely grounds. A lush lawn with colorful perennial gardens gently slopes to the ocean's edge, with a gravel beach at lower tides. Greenlawn enjoys a wonderful in-town location and is just seconds from restaurants, shops, Acadia National Park and all Bar Harbor amenities. Equipped with high-speed internet, Greenlawn is the perfect summer or year-round home. The extensive renovation included bringing the interior spaces down to the studs, structural improvements, a new roof, heating system and air conditioning and all new Marvin windows replicating the window design of the original cottage. It is essentially a brand new home with modern amenities that retains the original features and design of a grand Bar Harbor cottage of yesteryear. Greenlawn is a superior property, truly in better condition today than when it was built.
