The superior architectural pedigree of Redwood, and that it has only had three owners, is perhaps unrivalled in the state of Maine. Built in 1879, Redwood was designed by the renowned architect William Ralph Emerson, and heralded as the first and finest of his major ‘shingle cottage designs.’ The six-bedroom year-round residence is located within an easy walk of the village of Bar Harbor, yet is in a very quiet neighborhood of beautiful homes. The residence features formal living and dining rooms with fireplaces, several sitting rooms, and a large sunroom which accesses a large sunny deck. The property is approached by a long, winding private drive with surrounding wooded areas providing additional privacy. Huge, elegant old growth trees frame the residence with a sweeping lawn ending at the ocean bulkhead. Dramatic views of the islands of Frenchman Bay and the Bar Harbor Breakwater, are constantly changing with maritime activity, the weather, and eagles and gulls soaring in the sky.
